I have a Gigabyte FXA 990 UD3 motherboard with the AMD FX-8320 8-core processor.Currently the BIOS version I have is "FA" which I'm not sure what it means or if it is the most recent BIOS version.
I also attempted to do it through the @BIOS program but still no luck.
If you do not encounter any system instability or bugs with the current BIOS version, we suggest that you keep it.
If you determine to flash BIOS, you are taking a personal risk of BIOS flash failure.
Note: you can also also access Q Flash from inside BIOS by pressing the ‘F8’ key.
Once inside the Q Flash utility, you find a simple GUI with two choices.
Seeing that GIGABYTE has announced a new BIOS for X79 series users I thought it might be useful to just revisit the job of actually updating your motherboard’s BIOS.
While for more experienced users, power users and overclockers, this will be a simple and familiar task, this is a simple guide that less experienced users can refer to when updating their BIOS that is based on the user-friendly GIGABYTE Q Flash utility.Do you always get the message: ”The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you’re running…” when you try to run the flash tool?Its not so strange, since you always should try to avoid flash/update BIOS from Windows environment.F7 Next we have to copy this BIOS file to a USB thumb drive.In the old days, we would use a floppy drive, but today, you can use any type of USB thumb drive of any capacity or brand.The file that you download from us is a self-executable 7-Zip file (basically a compressed folder containing several files).
