hello!

i have a problem. a couple days ago i tried to update my BIOS (i have msi p67s-c43 motherboard), but something went wrong. my computer stopped working properely and i was recieving two beeps. after spending a day i managed to do the AMIBOOT.ROM trick with USB and i thought i wont have any more problems. but actually that flash did not work properely and now, i cannot do AMIBOOT.ROM flash again, and my motherboard is not responding anymore. i am not recieveing any beeps at start as i did before, even if i take RAM or other componens from the moba. but lights on moba are still turning on, when i start the computer and so do HDD, video card, .... now i do not know what to do in order to make my motherboard running well again.

thanks for your help

This "trick"? -

And a post over here by you?

Based on this one, I'd say you won't be back here -
http://www.computerf...ot-booting.html

Two different versions -
http://www.msi.com/p...b/P67S-C43.html
http://www.msi.com/p...S-C43--B3-.html
BIOS is probably NOT compatible between the two, in particular (AFAICT), the latest B3 BIOS (v51/v53)is ONLY for the B3.
WHICH BIOS did you use???

Nasty little thread here -
http://www.overclock...p-the-bomb-dead

Did you read this? -
http://www.msi.com/service/biosupdate/
If the Boot Block in the BIOS is hosed, the BIOS is hosed - bad Boot Block = no Boot.

i cannot do AMIBOOT.ROM flash again

What do you mean by that?

lights on moba are still turning on, when i start the computer and so do HDD, video card

Video Card "turns on"? I'm confused...

edit - see above...

lights go on, HDD spins, fan on video card spins... he probably meant they're powered.

yes, video card, HDD,... are powered.


those two post were also made by me. anyway i tried that trick you mentioned. i found out there are two almost similar cards P67S-C43 and P67S-C43 (B3), but because i bought the computer in february 2011 i assume i have the P67S-C43 one.

i have sometning else to tell. all my problems started, because i wanted to update bios using MSI live update 5. first i thought it is great they released that program, because i will not have to do anything in dos, but it did not turn out that well. after that i read most of people don not recommend updating from live update.

having read links posted about i think i probably bricked my moba. if i did everyhing allright then the update file might have benn corrupted .i still have about a month of warranty left, but haven`t i voided my warranty doing something wrong.

1. Know your model number

;)

Running BIOS Updates under Windows is never a good idea due to Processes Running (e.g. some Real-Time Antivirus Scanners) that cause failures (including corrupted BIOS Downloads).

I would suggest to you that you NOT tell them you tried the "tricK" when you RMA it and ONLY tell them the Live Update messed it up (play "dumb"). If you tell them, they MAY give you a hard time.
