Gigabyte board throwing BIOS Checksum Errors?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anyone here ever had a Gigabyte Intel board throw a fatal BIOS checksum error and trigger the DualBIOS recovery? That just happened out of the blue to my P55M-UD2 and I was like

I was able to reflash it to the latest BIOS from the F6, (actually I think earlier I had flashed it to F8 but now it's F11) and since then it's been OK. But has anyone else had this issue, ever?

short answer.... yes

In my case, my testing first led me to believe I had a bad PSU. After lots of testing it turned out to be the second DDR3 stick in the system. Pulled it .... the system sputtered a little and started. Am replacing all mem tonight.
