Scanning BIOS Image in Hard Drive....
My motherboard : GA-EP35-DS3L

What should i do ?




 
Your BIOS is corrupted. Did you flash BIOS through Windows?

Clear your CMOS and see. Then...
To fix this put the driver DVD in your DVD drive or hit <End> or <F8> (Can't remember which) during POST with DVD in the drive. See page 62-64(?) in the manual.

Its a new computer. I just turned it on for the first time. How can the bios be corrupted if it a new computer.

Is the motherboard damaged ?

SHould I replace it ?

I cleared the CMOS but the same thing happened.

he problem was solved by Changing the DIMM Memory slots.

I had previously placed my 2 x 2GB memory slots in DDRII2 and DDRII4

I changed it to

DDRII1 and DDRII3

Now my computer is working fine :)
