I did it various ways with the CMOS battery in and out and rest the Cmos jumpers and all. No Luck. I had done an ugrade through M-FLASh on the BIOS.

What happened when you flashed? Did it complete successfully? Did you flash in Windows, DOS or some other method?

It was a complete flash and then the systems restarted. Flashed using M-Flash. But after it restarted there was nothing beside HDD spinning, CD spinnign and Floppy drive lights on along with CPU being active. No keyboard, no POST, no video, no motherboard beeps. Nothing.

Actually I think it may not be because of the BIOS flash. My guess is that it's your PSU.

Do you have a spare?

Its not the PSU, tested it with 2 different power supplies and with the purchased one it was working fine up until the update.

And now you learned the hard way not to use flashing utilities like that. The only way I ever flash the bios is using DOS. MSI even has a guide on how to do it using a flash drive. I know there have been many problems with M-Flash in the past which I thought MSI would've fixed by now but obviously not.

Even a moderator on MSI forums doesn't recommend it.

did you try the AMIBOOT.ROM Bios recovery method via USB Drive?

I remember something like renaming your original bios to AMIBOOT.ROM and then pressing some key combination on the keyboard while turning on the PC to reflash the Bios chip_

I remember doing something like this before to fix one of my motherboards_

You must use a PS/2 Keyboard_ I know theres directions on how to do this via Google

Thanks. We have 2 of the same board here. 1 updated through MSI Live (working fine) and this new one updated through M-Flash (dead)

For future updates I'll use the method obove.
