yes, i have downloaded the zip file, i have extracted it and then i ran the exe file from the folder but nothing happened...

first i ran the from from the zipped file, nothing at all,
then i extracted it stil nothing...
then i exctract it to a folder in the desktop, still nothing...

Extract all the contents of that .zip file is mandatory to perform the bios update.

i ll try it again, and i will tell you about it

thank you for your time

cheers

And obviously make 100% sure you're downloading the correct bios for your mainboard. smile.gif

OP, you want to get the MSI program called "Live Update 6" from the support site for your board. I had a similar FM2+ MSI board and this was the only way to update the BIOS, it would not do it if you put it on a USB stick and went into the BIOS to do it there. Only through Windows using the Live Update program would it work.

Find it here: http://us.msi.com/product/motherboard/support/A88XM-E35.html#down-utility

Once you select the OS you have and download it, install the program and run it, point it to the BIOS files you downloaded already. The file should be something weird like E777.U60 or something like that (this is the actual BIOS file).

I can't tell you man, I had to find out on some other site from one person who happened to post about it that the Live Update worked when nothing else would. Low end MSI boards are not really a thing they care about or are proud of enough to make work properly.

860K and 955 are the same price but the 860 has higher IPC as well as IPS and OC's much better.

The only thing that the 955 has over the 860K is lvl3 cache but that is entirely irrelevant as the 860 performs much better.
