RD480 Neo2 Bios/Mainboard Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently just purchased a new bios chip for My MSI RD480 Neo2 Board from badflash.com. I had to do this due to a power outage while flashing. I just received the new chip and i have been having some problems. The main problem i was having is sometimes the PC will not post at all and sometimes it will boot and run fine. Ive tried flashing my bios back an older version i had before. I thought i was successful until this morning. All was well until i powered down my pc unplugged my CD-Rom and it would not boot. I tried reseting the CMOS settings with the jumper several times. Nothing. I removed my bios and jumpered the cmos settings and it worked. I think ive noticed a pattern. When ever there is a change in the bios sometimes it goes a little weird I.E: removing my cdrom.

I was wondering what may be causing this at first i figured it was just a incorrectly flashed bios chip wich prompted me to reflash it but its still happening.

Any Ideas guys?

Thanks

Try this.

1. Reset the CMOS by removing the little battery on your motherboard.
2. Flash with the most up to date BIOS.

Just give it another go...you have nothing to lose by doing it .
