Instant flash, just dont use the internet flash and prey that their server wont send you a bad packet. Instant flash has worked for me...and yes, unplug before pulling the battery...my bad!

I've cleared CMOS this way before. I did it again and it had no effect on my problem. Per Core OC is not available and All Core OC can only be 16x-38x. Nothing else. Setting it above 38x does not work, the number always goes back to 38. Still stuck here.

Does anyone know if I should update bios via USB Boot or via Instant Flash with USB? The re-flash suggestion is the last one I have and I want to do it right :O

Anyone know any other reasons why multiplier is stuck at x16-x38 and why onboard graphics is not an option in BIOS?

Not sure if this is related, but I am running default BIOS settings on the most updated one apart from this: I have Intel Smart Connect Technology: Disabled and Rapid Start Technology: Disabled because one of those 2 was preventing my PC from sleeping or shutting down. I dare not figure out which one, as those were dark days and I spent countless weeks trying to fix it. When I did, I did not turn back. But if need be, I can re-try those 2 settings.

Thanks again guys! Will try to bios flash once I get a confirmation here.

Edit: Will start instant-flashing some BIOS in hopes of improvement. Will report back.

Catastrophic failure ensued. Tried to instantflash bios p2.90 even though I have it already installd. Both monitors display black the second I clicked instant flash.Didnt even let me choose the file I wanted flashed although I saw that option briefly. Now Drdebug says Ab or A6 which means I'm in bios usually).

Any disaster control things I should do? Am terrified. Still sruxk here.

Good luck. Smart Connect was the culprit for your last issue. It is really for tablets and the like that update apps while you are away, so you will always have your facebook and twitter feeds completely updated. Pretty stinkin useless on a desktop. I had issues with it too, and it is the only thing that was not found when installing devices in windows8.1. pretty stupid.

As for your BIOS, either way is good, just dont do a windows flash or an internet flash...flash from boot or bios with a usb.

Is it normal for instant flash to fail? It didn't even start the flsh, just black screen. Not sure how to proceed. left it as is.

I have never had it fail. Format drive FAT32-->Drop BIOS-->F2--->Instant Flash? I have flashed 4 or 5 times without failure.

f2 gets you into bios f6 is the boot flash. Honestly, I have never been in your situation, so any advice I give is going to be a shot in the dark. Is there a debug code displayed?

Edit: I just saw I missed the catastrophic failure post. do you have a monitor plugged into the motherboard?

Ab or A6. Shows this when I am in bios normally but now I see no bios. Gonna reset pc despite attempted bios flash failure.

Edit: 2 monitors in gfx card via HDMI and dvi-i. None in mobo because iGPU doesn't work along with PC mtiplier. Will try to plug in via mobo vga/mobo hmdmi before I restart.

Edit2: igpu and oc problems were my original reason to come here.

No signal in mobo hdmi. Did not have monitors in mobo since iGPU doesn't work.
