Updating my motherboard

- Startup Repair is unable to automatically repair the problem or find a solution online.- When I try to boot into safe mode the computer pauses at the line "Loaded: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\" before the computer restarts again.

- I don't think there are any problems with my BIOS settings because Linux runs the same as before.

- When Windows tries to boot normally, in safe mode, or in safe mode with command prompt, it restarts the computer then prompts to run Startup Repair.

- I don't see an option in my BIOS to disable memory caching.

- I downloaded the latest drivers for my motherboard RAID and SATA controllers then using my working Ubuntu Linux, I compared the ahcix64s.sys, amdsata.sys, and files in the drivers folder with the drivers that I downloaded from Gigabyte.

On the other hand, we have previously covered why you shouldn’t generally update your hardware drivers, although gamers will definitely want to update their graphics drivers. BIOS updates will not make your computer faster, they generally won’t add new features you need, and they may even cause additional problems.

You should only update your BIOS if the new version contains an improvement you need. When you power your computer on, your BIOS takes control, starting the power-on self test (POST) and passing control over to the boot loader, which boots your computer’s operating system.Flashing a BIOS isn’t as easy as installing a normal software update.You will often want to flash your computer from DOS (yes, DOS – you may have to create a bootable USB drive with DOS on it and restart into that environment), as problems could occur when flashing from Windows.Unable to boot Windows after updating the BIOS on my motherboard (so my motherboard could be compatible with a new CPU I want to install). - My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with Service Pack 1 and all high priority updates (except for Internet Explorer 9). pid=3005&dl=1#ov with BIOS version F3L installed before the upgrade.- When I disable restart on boot failure I get a BSOD that gives no file or message (other than the usual A problem has been detected blah blah blah same old stuff) with the Technical information: *** STOP: (0x FFFFF880009A9928,0x FFFFFFFFC0000034,0x0000000000000000,0x0000000000000000) - Last known good configuration does not help.- When running Startup Repair, System Restore to the only restore point given (installing the @BIOS utility) also does not help.- I have two sticks of 2GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM (KVR1333D3N9/2G) installed for a total of 4GB.- All drivers were working fine to the best of my knowledge and I was not getting any BSODs or other errors as far as I can recall (aside from Flash Player crashing in Firefox) before updating my BIOS.BIOS updates typically have very short change logs – they may fix a bug with an obscure piece of hardware or add support for a new model of CPU.If your computer is working properly, you probably shouldn’t update your BIOS.
