MSI Z68A-GD65 G3 Bios problems :(

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello OC. I don't know what to do really.. I got my new computer yesterday and I tried to do some research myself in the BIOS. I saw there was a 4 OC button named: Cooling, Default, Cinema and Game.

I pressed game and suddenly my computer rebooted. I got BSOD and I had no choice but to reinstall Windows from new. When I got into windows I was meet with this:

My thoughts? Bios 1 is fried.. Dead..? Im now running on bios 2 (backup I guess) ? What shalll I do ? Return the card using the RMA or can I magically get my bios 1 back again?

When I boot up, and enter bios I see that my drives are mixed up also? At my bios 1 I had my SSD and HDD1 plugged into Sata 6 GB slots, but now, in bios2 it shows my other low drives, and not the ones I had with BIOS 1?? What the heck? eek.gif

Is there anything I can do to save my board? Etc revieve my bios 1 back to fully power and life and be happy?

Thanks in advance.

First of all DO NOT use MSI Live Update, it is rubbish and also updating BIOS this way can have a high chance of failure, get the latest drivers from here: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z68A-GD65--G3-.html

Download the latest beta bios here >> http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=151148.100 3rd post down.

Update the bios using: MSI HQ USB BIOS Flash Tool >> http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=116721.0

Use method 2 - Point directly to beta bios, once it has put all the neccesary files onto your USB stick, reboot and follow the steps to flash your bios safely, once it is done, follow the instructions and let it reboot, power down and clear CMOS (button at back of the motherboard) press for 5 seconds.

Once this is done, press F1 or F2 to get into UEFI bios and clock your system from there. When rebooting your PC you can keep clicking the [Delete] key on the keyboard while its booting to get back into the UEFI BIOS settings when needed.

You can also get further help by posting here >> http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?board=54.0
