|I recently installed a new MSI K8N Neo V2.0 h nForce3 250 motherboard and after some intial problems getting it go boot up, I finally got into windows. I proceded to install my lan drivers so I could go to MSI's Live Update site and get all the latest drivers installed. The first update it found was a bios update and against better judgement, I did the live bios update. As you have probably already guessed, it failed and now upon restart I am presented with the BootBlock Bios followed by Checksum bios error. Insert system disk into drive A:.|
I have read that is is possible to recover the bios using MSI's recovery solution and also the award flash utility and bios.
Ok, here's my problem with that. I go to MSI's website to download the bios/flash utility and it comes up a blank. That's kind of odd to me seeing as how it found the bios using Live Update. So I'm stuck at this point. I have contacted MSI about this and asked them to email me the bios for this board along with the flash utility and this is what they replied with. They want me to turn on the system and when it posts they want me to jot down the bios number at the top of the screen. That is kind of hard to do since the system won't post. And furthermore, if I went to their site and the download was actually available, I would simply look for the model of motherboard and choose the appropriate download. I can't understand why they are having such a problem getting me the bios I need. I emailed them again expaining this and am waiting for another reply.
What I really want to know is if anyone out there has or knows where I can find the bios for this motherboard.
