  1. Hey i need some help i was updating my motherboard with a new bios but i choose the wrong model

    My mother board is a Gigabyte K8N Pro and i used the bios of a K8N

    Now i cant upgrade it i dont know what to do

    I tried to take out the battery but that didnt work

    The worst thing is the pro version has dual bios and the other model doesnt so there is no option to restore it

    Could i take the backup chip and put it in the normal chip place?

    But i need some help doing that

    If you cant re-flash the BIOS you'll need to replace the CMOS chip. They are usually about $20 from the manufacturer.
