hey guys thanks for the replies
sam i was going to use the floppy drive to install the new bios. and just to clarify flashing the bios will still not allow me to change the settings that are greyed out?
is it ok to jump from version f4 to f7 all in one go or is it better to change to f5 then f6 then f7?
now the motherboard that i have (gigabyte GA-8ipe775-G) comes in two version or revisions
there is revision 1.1 and 1.2 http://www.gigabyte....rd=ga-8ipe775-g
how do i no which bios to install rev 1.1 or 1.2 i have looked on everest but it doesnt tell me it gives me every other detail that i would ever need to no but not this one lol
and scott my motherboard comes with a qflash utility have you heard much about it is it good and safe to use? it came on my driver cd.
sorry 1 last question
sam jumpers allow me to overclock? i have never heard about this before. which and what jumpers will allow me to do this i no you will probably tell me to look at the manual but the manual is the worst manuals i have ever read it tells you what teh board can support and goes through the bios but it doesnt tell you what the settings actually do.
so just to recap
1) flashing teh bios still wont let me change teh greyed out settings?
2)is it ok to jump from version f4 to f7 or do i do it step by step?
3) the board comes i two version which one and how do i find otu which one i have?
4)have you guys heard much about the qflash utility is it good and safe?
thanks you guys for your help and guidence i really dont want to stuff this up if i do decide to do it
once again thank you very much,
