Asus tuf gaming b450-m plus gaming failed bios upgrade

I flashed my bios today to prepare for a ryzen 3000 upgrade (haven't decided which one) and the screen went black during the flash. Now no video is displayed on the screen on startup... is there anything I can do? I tried resetting the cmos with no luck.

you don't have a socketed EEPROM so you either need to buy a flashing tool along with some alligator clips, RMA the board and hope they can fix it for you, or you need to buy a new board.

@HelpDatBIOS is the resident OCN BIOS mastermind and he might have some magic fix but I doubt it.

on the brighter side it might have saved you from blowing it up since it has a 4 phase VRM and likely wouldn't handle anything more than a stock 3600.

The motherboard supports ASUS CrashFree BIOS 3. You should be able to recover using a USB device and following the guide.

What are you on about the 3700x pulls 88 watts with a peak current of 90A. A 4 phase is more than adequate.

The asus cpu support list for this board runs right up to the 3900x. Not sure where you are getting your information?
are you assuming it will be overclocked? That's not the normal use case for a b450 board. It will be totally fine at stock speeds.

I'm wondering if you were able to use the Crashfree "utility" that is on your board? Asus claims it kicks in by itself in such cases before POST, but apparently only can be seen on screen if the MB has onboard DVI/VGA and a monitor is connected via one of those. Otherwise, if you have no such output, it should give an audio confirmation - if you have a beeper/onboard-speaker connected, it would beep twice, confirming Crashfree started and is searching for the BIOS to reflash/repair from a USB (fat32 formatted). In my case, on a bricked intel based Asus z390e the Crashfree should start, but it just doesn't.

Or have you found another solution?

Yes, me assuming that OP would be OCing his OC-friendly chipset on a website called overclock.net was silly of me. Woe is me.


the board at anything other than stock with anything more than the 3600 is dumb.

From what I have seen with Ryzen 3rd gen so far, there simply isn't much overclock left on the table from where AMD has set them up as defaults,regardless how good a VRM solution is in place. AMD is pushing them very hard already. It is not like the old days where with overclocking you could get huge gains quite easily.

I know this thread is old now, but I thought i'd update.

The crash free bios screen never comes up, so I couldn't recover it. I chatted with ASUS and they were willing to RMA it, but my internet went down right before they gave me my RMA number lol. I took this as a sign and just went ahead and bought a Gigabyte Aorus b450 Elite. I know that doesn't have a great VRM either, but as it turns out, I now have a 3800X, and overclocked to 4.45Ghz it only uses 100W. VRM really isn't an issue.

I have since moved my 2600 to an MSI b450 Tomahawk, as it draws more power than my 3800x when both are overclocked, but I like the Gigabyte BIOS better.

Had the same with that Asus z390-E on Intel, the one I mentioned above, but contacted Asus RMA and then (fought Asus and) managed to get a replacement. You can still RMA your Asus board anyway. Why not, especially now? Just make sure to take pictures that here is no damage to pins and board, and indicate that the BIOS reflash went wrong in the RMA form, otherwise they will(!) attempt to claim Customer Induced Damage and you'll have to dispute that. Worst case scenario, if they still attempt to either charge you or return the board, quickly complain to the CEO's office. You have nothing to lose now, perhaps you can get a replacement board (but you'll need to check even that one) and then either try it for comparison or just sell it. Always worth to have one more option in reserve.
P.S. and you don't need any proof of purchase on motherboards, just a verification that they are still within warranty and their warranty is long enough.
