Bad BIOS Flash, need help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I need some major help. I've never had a BIOS flash issue, and I've flashed the BIOS multiple times on at least 4 motherboards, including the one I'm on now. When I received my i5 4690K and MSI Z97S Plus, it was having nothing but problems, and I noticed it was on the very first BIOS for the board. I updated it to v1.2, and it fixed all of the problems, presumably updating it for the i5 4690K. Anyway, before I sold off my old i5 2500K combo, I figured I'd update to the BIOS just released on 7/01 to avoid any issues in the near future, and sure enough, updating to v1.3 has left me with no computer. Everything went normal, hit 100% and it rebooted like it should, and now I get no picture. The LED's on my keyboard and mouse don't light up, it won't post, nothing shows up on the monitor. I tried to reset the CMOS and everything. Anyone have any recovery tricks?

Does your mobo has dual BIOS?
If it does then you can fix your corrupted BIOS via other switch BIOS on your mobo but if it doesn't has dual BIOS then you have 2 option : first try to do CLEAR CMOS by take out the battery for 1 minute and put it back, hope it will fix, second you have to RMA your mobo.

Btw do you use M-flash method or other method?
Flashing on latest Z87/Z97 is involving two proccess, first flashing BIOS and second flashing ME. You do know how it works right? At the end of flashing BIOS it will restart and then begin to flashing ME.
