I'm having similar issues to the posters with the gaming app problem, but in my case it's Live Update itself that hangs and takes up my CPU usage.  This is on a Z170A M5. If I uninstall and reinstall Live Update, it will work like it should for a reboot or two, but then will exhibit the same behavior.

All you can do now is RMA the motherboard. LiveUpdate is not suitable for BIOS flashing (in my opinion) and doing so from Windows is the worst method for BIOS update.
See >>How to contact MSI.<<
PS: Warranty should not be affected, it was official BIOS update method.

Why why why is msi live update still being available to download if all it does is brick boards consistently?

Msi come on!

Just got done using Live Update to perfectly brick a B350 Tomahawk.  JBAT1 jumper short does nothing. Oddly this is one piece I bought this weekend with a no questions asked warranty.  I'm kind of shocked right now, as I don't think I've ever fully bricked a motherboard in the last 25 years...

I am having an annoying issue with Live Update.  Version is 6.20.14.  I have set the scan schedule but I keep getting a nag message every time I boot up asking me if I want to scan.  Is there anyway to turn this off?.

After a bunch of trial and error I think I figured out my issue, albeit mostly by accident. I did a clean Windows install and things worked fine for the most part, but eventually I wound up having the same issue: Live Update 6 would fail to launch and eat roughly 40% of my CPU. At about the same time I noticed that Event Viewer was logging unexpected system crashes; these were crashes that I was failing to notice because they were apparently happening only at startup and shutdown. This turned to be caused by a display driver crash (which is odd because it never happened while I was actually gaming). Once I realized that was the issue, I noticed that my Live Update problems seemed to follow an installation of Realtek HD Audio Drivers. Reinstalling Nvidia's drivers following each Realtek update has solved my issues and Live Update 6 hasn't acted up since.

I haven't bothered to check and see if updating Realtek's drivers manually avoids the issue or not. I'll check to see if that makes a difference next time. I will probably take the advice that was posted upthread and do installs manually from here on out; I'll just use Live Update to see what's available.

Hi,

just got some new hardware from MSI a videocard and MSI Gaming mainboard.

I have 2 issues to report :
1. The liveupdater popups are showing deskop while playing games, not funny when the game dissapears when nobody is asking, So the only choise is selecting never update, no reminder.
2. After doing this : This week i notice stuttering in games and i finally noticed that MSI live updater is using 50 % CPU time ?? What for doing nothing.. After killing the MISLiveupdater process, my PC is running fine.. cmon guys a program that only should check online for new updates once a day or not at all... why does it use 50 cpu continiously ? 


Btw  Not related to this topic, but the gaming app takes minutes before it becomes visible...after starting the exe.

thx for listening.

Kurt

I bricked my B350 Tomahawk updating the bios through MSI Live update, and had to wait 1 month for the RMA, but now everything is working fine. The only problem is that the MB that came back from the RMA had installed the first BIOS version (v 1.00). For this reason I can't set the frequency of my rams above 2133 MHz; quite disappointing, since they can work at 3200 MHz. I would like to update the BIOS, but I'm really scared to brick again the MB. What would you suggest? What's the safest way to update the BIOS? Is there something I can do in advance that could safeguard me in case of problems? That is, a fail-safe method.
Thanks in advance.

Use bios included MFlash instead of Live Update. That is safe. LIve Update is flashing under Windows and can be troubled by any small software issue even not related to Live Update itself.

Thank you for the answer, may I upgrade from v1.00 straight to v1.6?

Yes, that is no problem. All later bios versions do include all previous fixes.

Updating my MSI x370 gaming plus. What you see in the image attached. Has been on my screen for 30+ mins, I previously have updated my bioses via mflash and Live Update, but it never has taken this long. Have I bricked the motherboard with MSi Live Update? Can I salvage this? Please help.

Let it sit for another 1-2 hours. If nothing happens, try rebooting it. It may be bricked, or just software crashed (or something).
In the worst scenario, you'll need to RMA the board. See >>How to contact MSI.<<

Also make sure to try >>Clear CMOS Guide<<

When I ran Live Update 6, I received a notification that there was an update to Live Update. The setup program popped up and it abruptly quit. It turns out that Windows Defender identified an executable called "SUpdate.exe" that Live Update downloaded to my Internet cache folder as malware. The same thing happened when I tried installing a Realtek audio driver update through Live Update using the "Total Installer" button.

Whitelist (exclusion list) the SUpdate.exe then and retry.

Ugh.  I've been struggling with this issue all summer and have been to proud to post.  I put my pc together and it was taking forever to boot, if it booted at all.  I'd say it would only get to the OS maybe 1 out of 3 tries.  I decided to try the live update function.  It seemed to reboot and now won't get past debug code 07.   I've tried flashback to no avail, but tbh I've never had a bios update fail and didn't know what rev level it came with.  If someone can get that info by serial, I'd greatly appreciate it.  My board is an X370 gaming titanium.  S/N (I think) H316444165 01002.  At least that's the only number I see that resembles a serial number.  Oh, and I should add when I do try flashback, the white light blinks 3 times and stops.  I've stripped it down to nothing, tried all of my components except my CPU in another PC. I only have Intel CPU based pcs and this is a Ryzen 1700x.  This is the first build I've done in probably 15 years and probably the non sever I've touched in 7.

Ummm....No.  Everything works fine and I refuse to install a manufacturer's suite of applications because they have an annoying splash screen.  I need some real help here.

Just uninstall the software. 
Alternatively check start-up programs and disable anything that's related to MSI LiveUpdate, Command Center etc (whatever you actually have installed).

Live Update 6 - version 6.2.0.23 specifically - ignores the settings and keep prompting for scans. I have my settings set to scan the 1st of every month, but since upgrading to the latest version the settings is being ignored. This occurs on two different PCs. The popup is particularly annoying on my HTPC since it pops up almost everyday, so instead I've simply disabled it for the time being.

Also, a long-standing issue is that the settings get reset with every upgrade. It's annoying that I have to continually reset the settings to the 1st of the month everytime I install a new version. The settings should be preserved through the upgrade process.

My server was hacked - it is MSI 970 Gaming. The system is still half operational, but the attacker managed to ruin my bios, that is latest M4.
The case is I can not update bios through Mflash - the bios just freezes when I do it.
My computer is Linux Kubuntu server, but I attached Windows 10 x64 ssd and bootet it and I tried to flash bios from Live update, but both version 6(latest) and 5 say that my bios is uptodate and there is nothing to do, but I need to flash and fix my bios.
Can You give me an utility for windows 10 x64 so I flash bios directly and can You fix Live update that it allows to flash the same version of bios over (what I think You should still do and allow that after pop up). If You have bios updater for linux or from usb stick/dos please supply that ASAP.
Thanks in advance, sincerely, Grega from Slovenia

I've been relying on Live Update (currently v 6.2.0.23) to scan for new drivers as well as BIOS updates.

I have an MSI Z170A Gaming M7 motherboard and I'm on BIOS version 1.E0. Live update hasn't listed any new BIOS versions for quite some time and still doesn't when I scan as of wring this post but yet I just realized after manually checking for available downloads for my motherboard, 4 new BIOS versions have been released since the version I'm on was released.

Does this mean you can no longer rely on Live Update for BIOS updates but you need to look for those manually from now on?
