Oups sorry for this one

The board is Z68XP-UD3 V.1.3 and the reason why I update the bios !  I'm still asking myself ;-) but seriously my system was sluggish after updating a few system file I thought to myself why not, and I flash hundred's of bios and what happen this time i never saw this.

So I was wondering if there is a trick to reset the bios to a previous state, cause I read somewhere, there is a second bios on the board and there should be a way to recover something.

can someone help me on this one

thanks in advance

I finally been able to restart my back up bios and restart my pc and I downgrade to F10 bios which is working flawlessly.

But like I said before never seen a crapy Bios like this one. And I've been working with computer for more than 25 years SO if someone is asking himself if he should upgrade is bios to uefi bios DON'T  :-[

Thanks again and have a nice week

Hey guys. I have a GA-Z68XP-UD3 (rev. 1.3) motherboard. I updated it with the new UEFI BIOS. I use it because I love the easier UI and hardrive support, and specifically faster boot time.

The first version I installed was version U1g. Everything worked perfectly, except Dolby Home Theatre stopped functioning. I tried everything to get it working, but failed. I then contacted Gigabyte and all they could suggest was going back to Award BIOS. I thought I could sacrifice Dolby for a while until they released an update.

They then release version U1j, and I flashed my motherboard to that. Finally, they fixed Dolby, and I was happy. Then I noticed, that my RAM was clocked to 1333MHz. I had my XMP profile activated to get me 1600MHz, but the BIOS would not seem to change it. I even tried manually overclocking the memory to 1600MHz and even further, but, the system would not read a change. Then when I booted into Windows, my available physical memory read as 7.69GB instead of 8GB. I even made sure that internal graphics was disabled. Contacted Gigabyte again, and all they could say again, was to revert back.

Now I am back on U1g. Really annoying. Wish they were faster at releasing updates, and checked them before release. Is anyone else having these same issues? And have you been able to fix them?  ???

Any ideas when the new bios for z68x-ud7-b3 is coming out? I have an ivy bridge, and it sucks that the multiplier is stuck at 39.

Change USB port or use PS/2 keyboard (or extension) when pressing DEL.
