Put the instant flash file on a USB stick.

BIOS will auto detect it and ta-daaa!


I have tried that b4 my black screen and it never recognized my USB even tho it was formatted the way they wanted it to be, and internet flash always found the latest version and asked to download but then "internet connection error" and the only time it worked via internet was when i got the black screen after reboot. should I exchange it from microcenter or is there a fix?

Make sure you were putting the right type on the stick.
Instant flash and DOS flash files are different, and BIOS wont recognize the DOS file and vise versa.

Hey we can make BIOS mods

http://forum.notebookreview.com/toshiba/639689-sandy-bridge-toshiba-bios-modding-thread-xmp-enabled.html#post8251111

Here is the description how to do it.

We can easily unlock menus.

I tested it and it works.

It doesnt seem to cause corruption when editing. Still scared to flash.

Is anyone willing to donate me some money? I need €15 euros to buy a second BIOS chip.
If I have that I can do testing and make regular releases for all ASRock boards.

This is not guaranteed. But I will do my very best.

Anyone interested? PM me please.

I can unlock things like DIMM temp monitoring

trip points for temperatures being too high. Now these are the trip points:

THROTTLE AT 95C
FAN VERY HIGH AT 71C

I can do few other things but never did this. All I made was microcode updates for the ASRock P67 Pro3 SE

Please not that some settings may not be implemented correctly. So it's still a bet whether we will make a win or not. But I can at least try and give it a shot right ?

Here are flashing tools to flash the InstantFlash-image in windows

http://ami.com/support/downloadagreement.cfm?DLFile=support/downloads/amiflash.zip&InpDrvID=90

For 32-bit and 64-bit and DOS wink.gif

Isn't that generous of me ?

ATTENTION TO ANYONE THAT JUST BOUGHT THIS MOTHERBOARD AND IS HAVING PROBLEMS. READ THE WHOLE THREAD AND SEE IF YOUR ISSUE IS IN THERE, IF NOT THEN GOOGLE IT AND THEN IF YOU CANT FIND ANYTHING, ASK A QUESTION.

The reason I say this is because there is so much repeated questions and answering of the same things that those of us that are trying to test and share results are getting our posts hidden by spam.

ALSO:
Thank you to everyone that is trying to clean up the spam that is filling this thread rapidly, you know who you are.

Bios problem with my ASRock Z77 Extreme4

I was getting random freezing and restarts while gaming and watching videos. Ive been thru every forum on the net trying to figure it out. I reinstalled Windows, replaced my video card, tested my RAM did every little tweak possible nothing still the problem.

Then I decided to update my BIOS from 1.40 to 1.50 by flash drive then upgraded to 1.60 by internet flash, restarted my computer and everything worked flawlessly.

Should have left in alone but No not me. I was having trouble with my headset not being recognized when I start my computer and I would have to unplug and plug back it back in and it would be fine. So I saw BIOS update 1.70 (Improve USB compatibility) perfect maybe this will solve the headset problem. went in to BIOS and did a internet flash updated to 1.70, restarted and my headset still isn't being recognized on start up. Went on line and watched a video and bang restart, played a game and it froze.

Question - Can I roll back my BIOS and if so how?

Download the file from the ASRock site. Get the Instant Flash or DOS version, don';t use windows.
I use instant flash, though DOS is more solid.

Follow the instructions on the site to install the UEFI. If you have 1.6 on the drive, it'll install that. 1.5, etc.

Tbh though, it's probably not the BIOS that's causing the issues. 1.7 is the most stable E4 BIOS to date, so if it's causing issues, I'd look elsewhere.

judging by the fact that it still boots(?) your bios isn't really broken i guess, maybe it didn't flash all properly but if you can still go into windows you can just reflash it smile.gif do it trough DOS tho wink.gif

Is this headset with a usb sound card or is it usb? If so, does the soundcard have its own drivers.
If not, I would check sound drivers. It is pretty unclear in your post if it is usb or just 3.5mm that you are plugging your headset in with.
I would assume you are using usb since you said it is not recognizing. If this is the case it is most likely a usb soundcard and you need to install the drivers for it.
