Under tools it has Memory Diagnostic thing.
Isn't F2 the button I'm supposed to be pressing?

I found this, not sure if it helps: http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/16066/

How to update the BIOS?

There are 2 methods for updating the BIOS using Instant Flash.

Method 1:

Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
Press during POST to get into BIOS setup menu.
Select the utility under [Smart] menu to execute it.
ASRock Instant Flash will automatically detect all devices and only list those BIOS versions which are suitable for your motherboard.
Select the suitable BIOS version and flash.

Method 2:

Save the BIOS files on a device such as USB disk (FAT32 format), hard disk (FAT32 format) and floppy drive.
Press when you see this (or similar) page.
Select the suitable BIOS version and flash.

No need for that as you can also use the .EXE version and it'll update. After restart it'll run the new BIOS.
Checked System Information and it is indeed using 1.8

Never use the .exe.

So many bricked boards because of it.

Just don't do it.

I did it and everything is fine.

Also guys I didn't tell you this, but I've been having this problem before I even updated to 1.8.
You guys think it's because my SSD is loading too fast?

...that was important...you made it seem like it was because you updated to 1.8. Or maybe my mistake for thinking that.

Not sure about SSD...yeah mine is fast....but if i rapidly keep clicking F2 (or whatever the key is) as soon as I boot...i always get into bios. the window of opportunity is very small though.

Updated to 1.8 with no issues and seems to be fine.
I always use Instant Flash, never in Windows.
-extract bios to an empty fat32 formatted flash drive
-enter bios on boot by hitting the delete key repeatedly
-go to advanced settings, Instant Flash on bottom of screen
-be careful not to use Internet Flash (right below Instant Flash). I don't trust it.

WooHoo!!!! Hello friends. Currently doing an upgrade and looking to purchase my first ever Asrock board. I'm looking at the Asrock Z77-EXTREME4 Z77. I will be combining it with a 2500K and an aftermarket cooler of some sort. No doubt someone on here has this board so how do you find it? Cheers for the help

I am pretty sure 90% of the people in this thread have that board. Just google search where to buy it.


For the guy that cant get into the bios, as soon as your screen goes dark from restarting or as soon as you press your power button you need to spam delete , when I say spam I mean rapidly tap it like your playing atari.


I will test 1.8 either tonight or tomorrow (finals this week) . It does scare me but make me wonder at the same time if because they took 1.7 off was from a nasty bad bug or because they fixed my idle issues.(updated cpu code?)
