Sent you a PM..  No log files?  Don't bother with it.

Macrium Reflect is free:

Acronis True Image is also good.

Well don't I feel stupid. After actually looking in my pc I've realised that I don't even have that mobo.

Nevermind, I figured out what was going on anyway.
Motherboards with AMD processors / AB350-Gaming 3 MoBo CPU light
« Last post by rhubarb on November 03, 2017, 08:03:38 am »
Two month old build with AB350-Gaming 3 with Ryzen 5. It's been working fine but recently and intermittently when I power it on the CPU light comes on. No monitor, no keyboard/mouse.

If I force a power down by holding down the button it will restart and I can get into my OS.

How do I troubleshoot this?

Thank you.
Motherboards with AMD processors / GA-990FXA-UD3 - S.M.A.R.T. option missing in UEFI

My hdd is probably failing (windows installation from usb stick takes over 1h and had some OS issues related to missing BCD prior to reinstall) and i wanted to read smart data on it but unfortunately i'm unable to. At first i thought maybe some changes been done to my fav program for this (gnome-disk-utility) but i took a look into uefi and i see no option to disable or enable smart. Way back in better times when bios was a thing there was a key shortcut to show hidden options: ctrl+f1, i've tried it now on uefi but nothing happened. Any way to check if smart is enabled and if it is disabled how to enable it?

This is what my BIOS looks like.

I have been trying to find out how to flash the BIOS but I can't get it to work.

I have the latest BIOS file from the Gigabyte site on a flash drive formatted with exFat type plugged into a USB on the mobo.

I can't seem to enter q-flash neither by pressing F8 or END while booting. Pressing F8 from within the BIOS setup screen (what I can see of it at least) returns the message "Media not found. Insert media" or something like that.

I've tried downloading @BIOS but get a dll error which google doesn't help with and I don't know how to do it from DOS.

Help needed. Please. I'm almost at the tearing my hair out stage.

Windows 7 64
AMD FX 6300
Radeon R9 380X

dxdiag says BIOS version is: hp v211w 2.00
Hi All,

I am really interested in the GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI, however I do not care about WIFI  ;D on the board because the build I am preparing is going to be connected through LAN.

I was therefore thinking about the possibility of using the M.2 Socket 1 connector (M2_WIFI) expansion slot for an additional M.2 SSD (removing the Intel M2 WIFI chip)

However the manual and the specifications on the website are rather ambiguous about this being possible. The B350 chip set seems to support it.

Is there anyone that is currently doing this?

Motherboards with Intel processors / Smart Recovery 2 does not start

Seems a very usefull app. I want to backup my c drive to my d drive. I have set my source and destination accordingly. At the designated time the app starts, and after a minute or so stops. There is no error message and no backup.

Where can I find what went wrong?
I’m having the same issue it’s incredibly frustrating to not get an answer

Without more information about the components you are using, it is very hard to offer practical advice.

As a guess, I would think you have installed a newer CPU/APU that needs a BIOS update to be recognised.

I recently bought a GA-AB350 Gaming 3 motherboard and I connected everything. Then I plugged in the power cable from the PSU to the motherboard, but no lights came on, only the RAM lit up. I tried to check if it was my PSU's problem, so I checked it by using the paper clip method, and it works fine. So I plugged everything in except the 24 pin connector and put in a paper clip, and my case fans started to spin. So then I tried connecting it to the MOBO again, but it didn't respond. Any ideas why and how I can solve the problem?
