Gigabyte bios is updating ec firmware
Have a quite noisy laptop with Intel i7-3820 processor.
Using the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility from them I reduced the Core Current Limit in order to make the CPU run with less power consumption, hence slowing down the cooling fan (kind of 'under clocking' if you will).

If the update process starts, it may be that (depending on the flashtool and BIOS vendor) different beeps are heard. I also tried changing the RAM stick with many other sticks,,, still same result. Well, I guess that even with 20 years of PC experience, you never stop learning!!
Depending on the method, we would need again a bootable DOS media, from which we will try to make a blind BIOS update. You only need: 1 CPU, 1 RAM 1 Graphic adapter, Power supply unit mainboard. MB detects NO-RAM and beeps, all beeps are normal, it simply does not display on screen.
It ended up that all I had to do on my pavilion m6 was to remove the battery and hard drive at the same time. The HP installation recommended me to upgrade the BIOS. when it rebooted, the BIOS Update finished and the machine reboot. In addition, before a reboot, the machine made 8 beeps. make a bootable windows on flash disk 2.power off your computer and power on simply laves it will start from the bootable flash after it starts shutedown the computer and star again.
Note that you should first extract from the BIOS updater exe tool the BIOS ROM, then rename your ROM as BIOS. Use crisdisk tool to create a bootable diskette and a bootable floppy with the files phlash.exe, and (your bios file) will be created for you Held Win B key (other report the key combination being Fn B) plug in AC adaptor Push the power button, with the two other buttons still down.However, at first attempt I set the core current limit too low so that the laptop didn't even start!Thanks to that trick I could get the laptop to boot up and increase the core current limit to about 80% of the recommended value (135A - no mistake! Thanks again :-)I tried to fix for over 30 minutes. Thanksi have go this problame too but how I find the solution is first 1.Hi I tried flashing the modded BIOS with winphlash and phlash16. what I did is as follows: I connected a usb keyboard only- no mouse- and a floppy disk drive. Is there a utility that I could use to confirm that it is defective, prior to replacing it?
in addition to the cpu, RAM, and VGA adapter and power supply. Most wanted BIOS Beeps BIOS Boot CD BIOS Boot Diskette BIOS Boot Logo BIOS Boot USB Stick BIOS Chip installation removal BIOS Chip Type list CMOS Reset BIOS ID BIOS Passwords BIOS Software BIOS Software Tools 3.
So don't panic and wait a few minutes longer to make sure that the update process was terminated. Up to now, I was sure that a knackered BIOS will not even boot a floppy (remember, it stands for Basic I/O System).
