The same thing happened to me on my first MPower...had it not been for the miserable times I've had with MSIs competitors I wouldn't have even given the board a second chane, but I did and all was well. When this happened to me I wasn't able to do anything. I had to make a choice, stick with one Bios (#2) or return to MicroCenter and get a new one. I chose to get a new one.

my concern is that something happened before the flash was completed. Not only that you had to shut down and restart..this leaves an incomplete Bios. I'm starting to wonder if the board is picky about the USB port that is used for flashing because this isn't the first time I've heard about people encountering the boot-cycle of doom after a flash. my only suggestion would be to disconnect all USB devices leaving only your mouse and use the 2 USB ports that are not driver dependent ( top 2) see if that works. Hopefully it will continue from where it left off. Other than that i'm really not sure what to do about a possible Bios corruption. Good luck bud.

I will give this a try. Haven't heard from Alex yet. Thanks!!!

Thanks!!!


Another question: I flashed bios #1 using a USB flashdrive and afterwards, the computer started to reboot, but then the fans and lighted would flash for a half second and would repeat this over and over again. I switched to Bios 2 and started right up. (I didn't look at the DEBUG LED, so I don't know what it had....... redface.gif)

I am guessing that somehow I messed up bios #1. Can I fix this? If I try to reflash it, by switching the switch to bios #1 put a USB flashdrive with new bios on it in USB port and start up my computer, it only does the light and fan flash over and over. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

This is because after you flash your BIOS the default BIOS setting is set. You have to get into your your BIOS setting after flashing it & do the (2) most important things & other adjustments.

1) Set the SATA configuration
2) Set the boot priority in order & making sure that the 1st boot priority device is the drive which contains your operating system

When you update your BIOS the BIOS setting will set to default.

Oh Zdarryl, just realized something while sitting on the "throne", maybe you tried it already maybe you haven't. I updated my BIOS to the new beta that was mentioned earlier, after I had updated my mobo started a boot cycle, freaked me out. I unplugged cord from PSU, made sure that all power was purged, reset the CMOS, and all was well after. You can give that a try if you haven't already.

The key is to make sure that ALL POWER IS PURGED before you reset the CMOS. that means the on board power switch is not lit up.


Hey Sonda, I read somewhere that BCLK overclocking wasn't all that stable on this board. I was able to do it on my Sabertooth but not on the MPOWER.

Don't have a problem using a keyboard with 17.6 I have a problem figuring out which setting controls BCLK over clocking.

I didn't have a problem over clocking BCLK| till I tried 17.6 BIOS. I can change the BCLK speed but it doesn't move when I boot. Stays at 10000.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/11/28/msi_z77_mpower_lga1155_motherboard_review/7

Bclk depends on the cpu as well, I've had one 3770k in the mpower that didn't like anything over 106 bclk, another would run fine at 110 bclk.Think I've had about 6 different chips in it so far, none had issues with 106 or less.

I just got it to work and I didn't do it in the My OC Genie tab.... biggrin.gif


http://valid.canardpc.com/2654859



DRAM voltage is set to 1.525v. thumb.gif





I swapped BIOS around 2-3 times and couldn't get the BCLK to over clock. Finally after going back and forth from old to new BIOS and having the same results I set my ram to 1333mhz CL 11 and set CPU to 5GHZ. Booted fine. Set RAM to 2200mhz with BCLK 102mhz for effective 5 GHZ with multi of 49 on CPU and booted and ram and CPU didn't take BCLK over clock. I powered down. Swapped my ram sticks around from the ram slots they were in and then it booted about 3 times and cycled through its start up with no image on display. Finally on the 4th reboot. (I just let it start up and shot off then start up by itself) it booted into Windows and the BCLK took effect on the RAM and CPU speed as posted above.


I blame the BIOS to be buggy with the Samsung Green HYKO IC based ram that I am using. It's working now and hopefully it sticks for awhile. I'm sure the RAM can go alot faster in an ASUS MOtherboard which over clocks HYKO ram like a champ. Please MSI fix the BIOS to fully support the SAmsun Green 30nm HYKO based ram.
