Gigabyte Ga-h55m-s2 Fix Me Firmware
Gigabyte ga-h55m-s2 fix me firmware
If you own a Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2 motherboard, you may have encountered a problem where the system displays a message saying "Fix ME Firmware Data" and then shuts down and restarts. This is caused by a corruption of the Intel Management Engine (ME) firmware, which is a part of the chipset that handles various functions such as power management, security, and remote access. The ME firmware is stored in a separate region of the BIOS chip, and it can get corrupted due to various reasons, such as power surges, faulty hardware, or malware attacks. When this happens, the system cannot boot normally and may exhibit various issues, such as instability, performance degradation, or loss of functionality. Fortunately, there is a way to fix this issue by flashing a new BIOS file that contains both the BIOS and the ME firmware data. In this article, we will show you how to download and flash the BIOS+ME file for your Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2 motherboard using a tool called Flash Programming Tool (fptw.exe).
Step 1: Download the BIOS+ME file and the Flash Programming Tool
The first step is to download the BIOS+ME file and the Flash Programming Tool from the links below. The BIOS+ME file is a modified version of the official BIOS file from Gigabyte's website that includes the ME firmware data as well. The Flash Programming Tool is a utility from Intel that allows you to flash the BIOS chip directly from Windows. Make sure you download the correct versions for your motherboard and operating system.

Extract the files from the zip archives and save them in a folder on your desktop.
Step 2: Run the Flash Programming Tool as administrator
The next step is to run the Flash Programming Tool as administrator. To do this, right-click on the fptw.exe file and select "Run as administrator". You will see a command prompt window open up. Do not close this window or press any key until the flashing process is complete.
Step 3: Flash the BIOS+ME file using the command line
The final step is to flash the BIOS+ME file using the command line. To do this, type the following command in the command prompt window and press Enter:
fptw.exe /f h55-s2-me+bios.bin
This will start the flashing process, which may take several minutes. You will see some messages on the screen indicating the progress of the operation. Do not turn off your computer or interrupt the process in any way until it is finished. When it is done, you will see a message saying "FPT Operation Passed". This means that the flashing was successful and your BIOS chip has been updated with both the BIOS and the ME firmware data.
Step 4: Restart your computer and enjoy
The last step is to restart your computer and enjoy your fixed motherboard. To do this, type "exit" in the command prompt window and press Enter. This will close the window and return you to Windows. Then, click on the Start button and select "Restart". Your computer will reboot and load the new BIOS settings. You should no longer see the "Fix ME Firmware Data" message or experience any issues related to the ME firmware corruption. Congratulations, you have successfully fixed your Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2 motherboard!
