I have a problem. Many times, mostly when I play a video fullscreen or a game, the screen flashes black for a second and then back to normal.
This may happen 3 or 4 times in a row. I've seen a similar discussion in the forum but i dont think it applies to my situation. This happens both with the HDMI connection and the regular. I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks for the info George,
The BIOS version you currently have (F8) has seen a few updated/corrections. Gigabyte is currently on F16. I've provided a link to the download page for your motherboard here; http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4144#bios
Download the latest BIOS update and run it, and let me know if you're issue is corrected or not.
It would appear that the Gigabyte BIOS do not have an executable updater. I checked the specs for your motherboard, and it does support "Q Flash" - which can be used for updating ("flashing") your BIOS. Here is a guide from Gigabyte on how to do so; http://www.gigabyte.com/MicroSite/121/flashbios_qflash.pdf
Give that a try, and let me know how it goes!
