|as a last resort, i just successfully flashed my MB BIOS to the "newest" available through MSI support website... |
on the website, there were ~4 newer BIOS than the version i was running [thanks live update!] so i downloaded the newest one - which read as v1.A from september[i think] 2009 - to replace my v1.5 from september 2008.
everything went fine, but at POST it read as v1.10, which just kinda strikes me as odd, you know? just thought id post around and see if anyone else had a similar experience and/or helpful information regarding this matter... any info would be great - i just wanna make sure this is the correct/newest BIOS, and that i didnt somehow install am older BIOS on accident!
MB: MSI p43 neo3-f pcb1.0
"stock" BIOS: AMI [American Megatrends Inc.] v1.5 09/11/2008
new BIOS: AMI v1.10 ~09/2009 [forgot exact date..]
