DualBIOSTM Technology FAQ
GIGABYTE Technology is pleased to introduce DualBIOS technology, a hot spare for your system BIOS. This newness Value-added feature, in a long series of innovations from GIGABYTE, is available on GA-7ZX-H motherboard. Future GIGABYTE motherboards will also incorporate this innovation.

Whats DualBIOSTM?

On GIGABYTE motherboards with DualBIOS there are physically two BIOS chips. For simplicity well call one your Main BIOS and the other well call your Backup BIOS (your hot spare). If your Main BIOS fails, the Backup BIOS almost automatically takes over on your next system boot. Almost automatically and with virtually zero down time! Whether the problem is a failure in flashing your BIOS or a virus or a catastrophic failure of the Main BIOS chip, the result is the same - the Backup BIOS backs you up, almost automatically.
I. Q: What is DualBIOSTM technology? Answer:
DualBIOS technology is a patented technology from Giga-Byte Technology. The concept of this technology is based on the redundancy and fault tolerance theory. DualBIOSTM technology simply means there are two system BIOSes (ROM) integrated onto the motherboard. One is a main BIOS, and the other is a backup BIOS. The mainboard will operate normally with the main BIOS, however, if the main BIOS is corrupt or damaged for various reasons, the backup BIOS will be automatically used when the system powered-On. Your PC will operate as before the main BIOS was damaged, and is completely transparent to the user.

EasyTuneIIITM Introduction

EasyTuneIII Introduction

Gigabyte announces EasyTuneIII Windows overdrive utility
Overdrive might be one of the most common issues in computer field. But have many users ever tried it? The answer is probably no. Because overdrive is thought to be very difficult and includes a lot of technical know-how, sometimes overdrive is even considered as special skills found only in some enthusiasts.
But as to the experts in overdrive, whats the truth? They may spend quite a lot of time and money to study, try and use many different hardware and software tools to do overdrive. And even with these technologies, they still learn that its quite a risk because the safety and stability of an overdrive system is unknown. Now everything is different because of a Windows overdrive utility EasyTuneIII--announced by Gigabyte. This utility has totally changed the gaming rule of overdrive. This is the first overdrive utility suitable for both normal and power users. Users can choose either Easy Mode or Advanced Mode to run overdrive at their convenience. For users who choose Easy Mode, they just need to click Auto Optimize to have auto and immediate CPU overclocking. This software will then overdrive CPU speed automatically with the result being shown in the control panel. If someone prefers to overdrive by oneself, there is also another choice. Click Advanced Mode to enjoy sport drive class overclocking. In Advanced Mode, one can change the system bus speed in small increments to get ultimate system performance. And no matter which mainboard is used, if its a Gigabytes product*, EasyTuneIII helps to perform the best of system. Besides, different from other traditional over-clocking methods, EasyTuneIII doesnt require users to change neither BIOS nor hardware switch/ jumper setting; on the other hand, they can do overdrive at only one click. Therefore, this is a safer way for overdrive as nothing is changed on software or hardware. If user runs EasyTuneIII over systems limitation, the biggest lost is only to restart the computer again and the side effect is then well controlled. Moreover, if one well-performed system speed been tested in EasyTuneIII, user can Save this bus speed and Load it in next time. Obviously, Gigabyte EasyTuneIII has already turned the overdrive technology toward to a newer generation.

This wonderful software is now free bundled in Gigabyte motherboard attached driver CD. Users may make a test drive of EasyTuneIII to find out more amazing features by themselves. For further technical information, please link to: Note: For the latest version of EasyTuneIIITM, please visit our website.

Memory Installation

The motherboard has 3 dual inline memory module (DIMM) sockets. The BIOS will automatically detects memory type and size. To install the memory module, just push it vertically into the DIMM Slot.The DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the two notch. Memory size can vary between sockets. Install memory in any combination table: DIMM DIMM 1 DIMM 2 DIMM 3 168-pin SDRAM DIMM Modules Supports 16 / 32 / 64 / 128 / 256 / 512 MB Supports 16 / 32 / 64 / 128 / 256 / 512 MB Supports 16 / 32 / 64 /128 / 256 / 512 MB X 1 pcs X 1 pcs X 1 pcs

BIOS Setup

BIOS Setup is an overview of the BIOS Setup Program. The program that allows users to modify the basic system configuration. This type of information is stored in battery-backed CMOS RAM so that it retains the Setup information when the power is turned off.


Power ON the computer and press <Del> immediately will allow you to enter Setup. If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the "RESET" bottom on the system case. You may also restart by simultaneously press <Ctrl> <Alt> <Del> keys.
