Gigabyte GA-8IPE775 Series, GA-8IPE775-G, GA-8IPE775 PRO User manual
When you installing AGP card, please make sure the following
notice is fully understood and practiced. If your AGP card has
"AGP 4X/8X (1.5V) notch"(show below), please make sure your
AGP card is AGP 4X/8X (1.5V).
AGP 4X/8X notch
Caution: AGP 2X card is not supported by Intel® 845(GE/PE) / 845(E/
G) / 850(E) / E7205 / 865(G/PE/P) / 875P. You might experience system
unable to boot up normally. Please insert an AGP 4X/8X card.
Example 1: Diamond Vipper V770 golden finger is compatible with 2X/4X
mode AGP slot. It can be switched between AGP 2X(3.3V) or 4X(1.5V)
mode by adjusting the jumper. The factory default for this card is
2X(3.3V). The GA-8IPE775 Series (or any AGP 4X/8X only)
motherboards might not function properly, if you install this card without
switching the jumper to 4X(1.5V) mode in it.
Example 2: Some ATi Rage 128 Pro graphics cards made by "Power Color",
the graphics card manufacturer & some SiS 305 cards, their golden finger
is compatible with 2X(3.3V)/4X(1.5V) mode AGP slot, but they support 2X
(3.3V) only. The GA-8IPE775 Series (or any AGP 4X/8X only)
motherboards might not function properly, If you install this card in it.
Note : Although Gigabyte's AG32S(G) graphics card is based on ATi Rage
128 Pro chip, the design of AG32S(G) is compliance with AGP 4X(1.5V)
specification. Therefore, AG32S(G) will work fine with Intel® 845(GE/PE) /
845(E/G) / 850(E) / E7205 / 865(G/PE/P) / 875P based motherboards.
Before you install PCI cards, please remove the Dual BIOS label from
PCI slots if there is one.

Warning
Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To
protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you
work on your computer.
1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside.
2.
Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one,
touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power
3.
supply case.
Hold components by the edges and try not touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other
4.
components.
Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the components
5.
whenever the components are separated from the system.
Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or remove the ATX power
connector on the motherboard.
Installing the motherboard to the chassis...
If the motherboard has mounting holes, but they don't line up with the holes on the base and there
are no slots to attach the spacers, do not become alarmed you can still attach the spacers to the
mounting holes. Just cut the bottom portion of the spacers (the spacer may be a little hard to cut off, so
be careful of your hands). In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying
about short circuits. Sometimes you may need to use the plastic springs to isolate the screw from the
motherboard PCB surface, because the circuit wire may be near by the hole. Be careful, don't let the
screw contact any printed circuit write or parts on the PCB that are near the fixing hole, otherwise it
may damage the board or cause board malfunctioning.

Chapter 2 Hardware Installation Process
English
Step 1: Install the Central Processing Unit (CPU)
Before installing the CPU, please comply with the following conditions:
1. Please make sure that the motherboard supports the CPU.
2. Please take note of the one indented corner of the CPU. If you install the CPU in the wrong
direction, the CPU will not insert properly. If this occurs, please change the insert direction
of the CPU.
3. Please add an even layer of heat sink paste between the CPU and heatsink.
4. Please make sure the heatsink is installed on the CPU prior to system use, otherwise
overheating and permanent damage of the CPU may occur.
5. Please set the CPU host frequency in accordance with the processor specifications. It is
not recommended that the system bus frequency be set beyond hardware specifications
since it does not meet the required standards for the peripherals. If you wish to set the
frequency beyond the proper specifications, please do so according to your hardware
specifications including the CPU, graphics card, memory, hard drive, etc.
HT functionality requirement content :
Enabling the functionality of Hyper-Threading Technology for your computer system requires
all of the following platform components:
- CPU: An Intel® Pentium 4 Processor with HT Technology
- Chipset: An Intel ® Chipset that supports HT Technology

Fig.1
Please apply an even
layer of heatsink paste
on the surface of the
installed CPU.
Fig. 2
Place the heatsink atop
the CPU and then
secure each of the four
heatsink clips by
pressing downwards.
(for detailed installation instructions, please refer to
the heat sink installation section of the user manual)
Fig. 3
Please attach the power connector of the heatsink to the CPU fan header
located on the motherboard. Installation is complete.
The heatsink may adhere to the CPU as a result of hardening of the heatsink paste. If the heatsink
is removed when this occurs, the CPU may become pulled from its socket with the metal lever
still in its locked position and result in damage to the processor pins. To prevent such an
occurrence, it is suggested that either thermal tape rather than heat sink paste be used for heat
dissipation or using extreme care when removing the heatsink.
Step 2: Installation of Memory
Before installing the memory modules, please comply with the following conditions:
1. Please make sure that the memory used is supported by the motherboard. It is
recommended that memory of similar capacity, specifications and brand be used.
2. Before installing or removing memory modules, please make sure that the computer
power is switched off to prevent hardware damage.
3. Memory modules have a foolproof insertion design. A memory module can be installed in
only one direction. If you are unable to insert the module, please switch the direction.
- 13 -
Hardware Installation Process
English
Step 1-2: Installation of the Heatsink
English
The motherboard supports DDR memory modules, whereby BIOS will automatically detect memory
capacity and specifications. Memory modules are designed so that they can be inserted only in one
direction. The memory capacity used can differ with each slot.
Notch
DDR
1. The DIMM socket has a notch, so the DIMM memory
module can only fit in one direction.
2. Insert the DIMM memory module vertically into the DIMM
socket. Then push it down.
3. Close the plastic clip at both edges of the DIMM sockets to
lock the DIMM module.
Reverse the installation steps when you wish to remove
the DIMM module.
DDR Introduction
Established on the existing SDRAM infrastructure, DDR (Double Data Rate) memory is a high
performance and cost-effective solution that allows easy adoption for memory vendors, OEMs, and
system integrators.
DDR memory is a great evolutionary solution for the PC industry that builds on the existing SDRAM
architecture, yet make the awesome advances in solving the system performance bottleneck by doubling
the memory bandwidth. Nowadays, with the highest bandwidth of 3.2GB/s of DDR400 memory and
complete line of DDR400/333/266/200 memory solutions, DDR memory is the best choice for building high
performance and low latency DRAM subsystem that are suitable for servers, workstations, and full range
of desktop PCs.

GA-8IPE775 Series supports the Dual Channel Technology. After operating the Dual Channel Technology,
the bandwidth of Memory Bus will add double up to 6.4GB/s.
GA-8IPE775 Series includes 4 DIMM sockets, and each Channel has two DIMM sockets as following:
Channel A : DIMM 1, DIMM 2
Channel B : DIMM 3, DIMM 4
If you want to operate the Dual Channel Technology, please note the following explanations due
to the limitation of Intel ® chipset specifications.
1. Only one DDR memory module is installed: The Dual Channel Technology can't operate
when only one DDR memory module is installed.
2. Two DDR memory modules are installed (the same memory size and type): The Dual
Channel Technology will operate when two memory modules are inserted individually into
Channel A and B. If you install two memory modules in the same channel, the Dual Channel
Technology will not operate.
3. Three DDR memory modules are installed: Please note that The Dual Channel
Technology will not operate when three DDR memory modules are installed; part of
them will not be detected.
4. Four DDR memory modules are installed: If you install four memory modules at the same
time, the Dual Channel Technology will operate only when those modules have the same
memory size and type.
We'll strongly recommend our user to slot two DDR memory modules into the DIMMs with the same color
in order for Dual Channel Technology to work.
The following tables include all memory-installed combination types:

BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) includes a CMOS SETUP utility which allows user to configure
required settings or to activate certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS SRAM of the motherboard.
When the power is turned off, the battery on the motherboard supplies the necessary power to the CMOS
SRAM.
When the power is turned on, pushing the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (Power-On Self Test) will
take you to the CMOS SETUP screen. You can enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing "Ctrl + F1".
When setting up BIOS for the first time, it is recommended that you save the current BIOS to a disk in the
event that BIOS needs to be reset to its original settings. If you wish to upgrade to a new BIOS, either
Gigabyte's Q-Flash or @BIOS utility can be used.
Q-Flash allows the user to quickly and easily update or backup BIOS without entering the operating
system.
@BIOS is a Windows-based utility that does not require users to boot to DOS before upgrading BIOS but
directly download and update BIOS from the Internet.

Flash BIOS Method Introduction
Method 1: Dual BIOS
/Q-Flash
A. What is Dual BIOS Technology?
Dual BIOS means that there are two system BIOS (ROM) on the motherboard, one is the Main
BIOS and the other is Backup BIOS. Under the normal circumstances, the system works on the
Main BIOS. If the Main BIOS is corrupted or damaged, the Backup BIOS can take over while the
system is powered on. This means that your PC will still be able to run stably as if nothing has
happened in your BIOS.
B. How to use Dual BIOS and Q-Flash Utility?
a. After power on the computer, pressing <Del> immediately during POST (Power On Self Test) it will
allow you to enter Award BIOS CMOS SETUP, then press <F8> to enter Flash utility.

before the Operating System is loaded and after the power is on, and that the Wide Range Protection
is set to "Enable", the PC will boot from Backup BIOS automatically.
Status 2:
If the ROM BIOS on peripherals cards(ex. SCSI Cards, LAN Cards,..) emits signals torequest
restart of the system after the user make any alteration on it, the boot up BIOS will not be changed to
the Backup BIOS.

Status 1:
The user can set to boot from main BIOS or Backup BIOS.
Status 2:
If one of the main BIOS or the Backup BIOS fails, this item "Boot From : Main BIOS(Default)"
will become gray and will not be changed by user.

With this utility, users only have to stay in the BIOS menu
when they want to update BIOS. Q-Flash™ allows users to
flash BIOS without any utility in DOS or Windows. Using
Q-Flash indicating no more fooling around with any complicated instructions and operating system since
TM
it is in the BIOS menu.
Please note that because updating BIOS has potential risk, please do it with caution!! We
are sorry that Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd is not responsible for damages of system
because of incorrect manipulation of updating BIOS to avoid any claims from end-users.
Before You Begin:
Before you start updating BIOS with the Q-Flash utility, please follow the steps below first.

Xpress Recovery2 is designed to provide quick backup and restoration of hard disk data. Supporting Microsoft operating systems including
Windows XP/2000/NT/98/Me and DOS, and file systems including
FAT16, FAT32, and NTFS, Xpress Recovery2 is able to back up data
on hard disks on PATA and SATA IDE controllers. After Xpress Recovery2 is executed from CD-ROM
for the first time, it will stay permanent in your hard disk. If you wish to run Xpress Recovery2 later, you
can simply press F9 during system bootup to enter Xpress Recovery2 without the CD-ROM.
System requirements:
1. Intel x86 platforms
2. At least 64M bytes of system memory
3. VESA-supported VGA cards
How to use the Xpress Recovery2
Initial access by booting from CD-ROM and subsequent access by pressing the F9 key:
Steps: After entering BIOS Setup, go to Advanced BIOS Feature and set to boot from CD-ROM. Save
the settings and exit the BIOS Setup. Insert the provided driver CD into your CD-ROM drive. Upon
system restart, the message which says "Boot from CD/DVD:" will appear in the bottom left corner
of the screen. Press any key to enter Xpress Recovery2.
After the steps above are completed, subsequent access to Xpress Recovery2 can be made
by simply pressing the <F9> key during system power-on.

Xpress Recovery2 Introduction
English
The Main Screen of Xpress Recovery2
1. RESTORE:
Restore the backed-up data to your hard disk.
(This button will not appear if there is no backup
file.)
2. BACKUP:
Back up data from hard disk.
3. REMOVE:
Remove previously-created backup files
to release disk space.
(This button will not appear if there is no backup
file.)
4. REBOOT:
Exit the main screen and restart the system.
Limitations:
1.
2.
3.
Not compatible to Xpress Recovery.
For the use of Xpress Recovery2, a primary partition must be reserved.
Xpress Recovery2 will store the backup file at the end of the hard disk, so free space available
on the hard disk for the backup file must be allocated in advance. (A minimum 4GB is recommended but the actual space is dependent on the size of the data to be backed up)
4. Capable of backing up hard disks installed with Windows operating systems including DOS and
Windows XP/2000/NT/9x/Me.
5. USB hard disks are currently not supported.
6. Does not support RAID/AHCI (class code 0104/0106) hard disks.
7. Capable of backing up and restoring only the first physical hard disk.
Hard disks detection sequence is as follows:
a. PATA IDE primary channel
b. PATA IDE secondary channel
c . SATA IDE channel 1
d. SATA IDE channel 2
e. SATA IDE channel 3
f. SATA IDE channel 4
Precautions:
1.
When using hard disks with more than 128G under Windows 2000, be sure to execute the
EnableBigLba.exe program from the driver CD before data backup.
2. It is normal that data backup takes longer time than data restoration.
3. Xpress Recovery2 is compliant with the GPL regulations.
4. On a few motherboards based on Nvidia chipsets, BIOS update is required for Xpress Recovery2
to correctly identify RAID and SATA IDE mode. Please contact your motherboard manufacturer.
5. Xpress Recovery2 supports only PATA hard disks and not SATA hard disks on the following
motherboards (As this is a BIOS-related issue, it can be solved by BIOS update)

Below is a collection of general asked questions. To check general asked questions based on a specific
motherboard model, please log on to http://tw.giga-byte.com/faq/faq.htm
Question 1: I cannot see some options that were included in previous BIOS after updating BIOS. Why?
Answer: Some advanced options are hidden in new BIOS version. Please press Ctrl and F1 keys after
entering BIOS menu and you will be able to see these options.
Questions 2: Why is the light of my keyboard/optical mouse still on after computer shuts down?
Answer: In some boards, a small amount of electricity is kept on standby after computer shuts down and
that's why the light is still on.
Question 3: How do I clear CMOS?
Answer: If your board has a Clear CMOS jumper, please refer to the Clear CMOS steps in the manual. If your
board doesn't have such jumper, you can take off the on-board battery to leak voltage to clear CMOS.
Please refer to the steps below:
Steps:
1. Turn off power.
2. Disconnect the power cord from MB.
3. Take out the battery gently and put it aside for about 10 minutes (Or you can use a metal object to
connect the positive and negative pins in the battery holder to makethem short for one minute).
4. Re-insert the battery to the battery holder.
5. Connect power cord to MB again and turn on power.
6. Press Del to enter BIOS and load Fail-Safe Defaults.
7. Save changes and reboot the system.
Question 4: Why does system seem unstable after updating BIOS?
Answer: Please remember to load Fail-Safe Defaults (Or Load BIOS Defaults) after flashing BIOS. However,
if the system instability still remains, please clear CMOS to solve the problem.
Question 5: Why do I still get a weak sound after turning up the speaker to the maximum volume?
Answer: Please make sure the speaker you are using is equipped with an internal amplifier. If not, please
change another speaker with power/amplifier and try again later.
Question 6: How do I disable onboard VGA card in order to add an external VGA card?
Answer: Gigabyte motherboards will auto-detect the external VGA card after it is plugged in, so you don't
need to change any setting manually to disable the onboard VGA.

Question 7: Why cannot I use the IDE 2?
Answer: Please refer to the user manual and check whether you have connected any cable that is not
provided with the motherboard package to the USB Over Current pin in the Front USB Panel. If the cable is
your own cable, please remove it from this pin and do not connect any of your own cables to it.
Question 8: Sometimes I hear different continuous beeps from computer after system boots up. What do
these beeps usually stand for?
