I can see the new BIOS file on the USB drive and when I select it everything appears to install correctly and the computer reboots, but all of my settings are still changed, q-flash is still version 2.15 (should have upgraded as well). I don't have BIOS lock turned on or anything like that. It's a Gigabyte MA790XT-UD4P.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Which BIOS version do you have installed and which one tried you to install? – Robert Nov 26 '12 at 10:13

Award is the BIOS. I just used CPU-Z and it actually reported that my BIOS is the new version . Not sure why it didn't update Q-Flash and retained all of my settings though.
