Wrong motherboard firmware?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have Asrock B75Pro-3m motherboard, but the BIOS settings says differently, it shows as H61M-VS3 instead of B75 and one of my PCIE slot, lan port and hdmi port aren't working, can this be because of the wrong firmware? I have tried flashing B75 firmware (updated one) but it can't detect the firmware as a valid file.

I have also tried contacting ASrock regarding the issue but they never replied.

Can anyone help me please. Thanks

Hmmm.
Just looking at those two the differences are obvious.

What are you trying to say. I know their difference as I have also used H61M-VS3 before.

The question here is the hardware is B75 Pro 3M while the firmware is H61M-VS3.

So, I'm assuming the my B75 board contains H61 firmware and I want to know how to fix it.

I know how to flash/upgrade a firmware.

Ruri, it sounds like your only real course of action is to RMA the board. If you can't flash it there isn't going to be much (if anything) you can do.

Then if you have the right bios for the motherboard and use the correct flashing procedure it should work?

Did you buy this motherboard new or used? There's always the possibility that someone replaced the BIOS chip with the wrong one. You could do the same with a new, correct chip. They're cheap on ebay, $10-$20

But, Asrock tech should be you first resort.

I bought this mobo from a local store, it was a new one (or at least I bought it as a new one). I never checked the BIOS settings but recently found out that one of my PCIE slot is not working. Then the rest two ports as well.

The first thing that came to my mind was "This might be fixed if I flash the right firmware", so I tried, but no, it cannot detect the firmware I downloaded.

I have contacted Asrock but as I've said, I haven't received a reply yet and I has been a month.

So, I thought maybe if I submit a question here, someone might have gone through the problem and know how to fix it, and that is why I posted the question.

But, it seems there is no easy solution. I will try contacting Asrock again. Thanks anyways.
