Can't get to the BIOS to do anything now. Trying to get a RMA.

I have the same issue. I have a Z170i with Intel i5-6500 CPU. Live update updated is said new BIOS version is avaiable. I was on 1.40 and updated for 1.50. Till that point  I can not use my PC. I have black screen CPU EZ Debug led is on. I think 1.50 BIOS is wrong how can I downgrade to 1.40? I don't think CPU is went wrong.

Overall I think MSI Live Update is a great application in helping you to keep track of the latest versions for many of the applications and drivers you have installed.

One thing though I'm missing and think would be a great addition is a chance to hide some of the updates/applications/drivers from the list when you perform a scan so you don't have to see them pop up in the list whenever you perform a scan. This since you often have some applications that you don't want for whatever reason and there's no need to see them in the list.

Live Update keeps notifying me that a new version is available.  My current version shows as 6.1.011.  I tried several times to let it install to the new 6.1.012, but it apparently doesn't finish it's own install

I had the same issue and I solved it by manually uninstalling Live Update and then manually install the latest version of it found under C:\MSI\LiveUpdate\DL_FILE unless you changed the default path.

I tried to run this program but failed.
I installed the program successfully but when I tried to run it, it shows that it doesn't support this platform.
My system version is 64 bits Win7
How to solve this problem?

Updated BIOS with LIVE UPDATE. A window showed up on the monitor saying that BIOS is getting updated, dont turn off and mouse and keyboard would be locked. After few minutes the computer rebooted and then, for long time, was just powered on without showing any signs of booting up. I restarted the computer and it still showed no signs of booting up, also power button LED did not light up. tried resetting BIOS by removing battery, jumper cap on JBAT1, downloaded BIOS to USB...  Noticed after all this that the LED for CPU is constantly lit, meaning CPU is not detected of fail.

tl; dr
Used Live Update to update BIOS and now motherboard doesn't detect CPU.

I can confirm that Live Update is the worst way to update anything, especially your bios. There have been a few annoying problems with dead links,  wrong driver versions, and more minor annoyances.

A few days ago, MSI Live Update crashed (it never crashed before) while updating the bios. The result is a broken Z170A Gaming M7.

I posted under Gaming Motherboards about this, before looking here. It's good to see my suspicions confirmed by other people though.

As reported in:

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=268295.msg1533610#msg1533610

Z170A Gaming M5, flashing from BIOS 1.7 to 1.8 using LiveUpdate 6.1.012 on Windows 10 Pro x64 resulted on bricked board.

Everything at stock clocks except memory using XMS profile and 48h Prime95 stable.

Same issues as above - LiveUpdate has knocked out  my Z170A gaming pro BIOS with the latest update (to 1.8 using liveupdate 6). Currently have no boot and had no success yet with flashing BIOS

I have a Z170A M5 motherboard that was updating via live update when it shut my PC down and now it will not boot. I have got an error code F9 on the LCD on the mobo. I have tried resetting the CMOS and still the same. I have heard of lots of problems with live update but has anyone got a fix for this?
Thanks

Guys,

If LiveUpdate 6 failed on you, try this:
Download actual BIOS file from your product page on www.msi.com . Make sure you download your current one (before attempting to update through LU6).
Place unzipped BIOS on an empty (FAT32 formatted) USB stick.
Plug the USB stick to the motherboard's USB (on the back).
Disconnect ALL storage devices (including DVD/BluRay ROMs etc).
Clear CMOS: >>Clear CMOS Guide<<
Try to boot. Within couple of minutes (if recovery is possible) it should recover itself.

Today I used Live Update to update my bios. It crashed during updating. My computer wouldn't turn on. I eventually found the F2 debug code on the motherboard. I eventually realized I needed ALL the bios files on my FAT32 USB stick, not just the latest one. Now I get past F2, my monitor actually shows blank (it used to get no signal at all), but I get the 99 debug code, "super IO initialized" which supposedly means I haven't cleared my CMOS. I took out the battery for 45 seconds. Still ends up on error 99.

So now I'm going to leave the battery out for 10 minutes! The Z97 Gaming 5 has no CMOS-clear-button and no jumpers to short with.

Do you really think 10 minutes from now and a "couple of minutes" to recover the bios, all my problems will be a thing of the past? It has literally been all day. In case my angry face isn't getting through to you over the internet, I'm angry.

Time's up. Didn't work. I also tried turning it all off and holding a screwdriver to the jumper pins for a second. Everything still leads to LED code 99. I think I need more instructions...

EDIT: Made progress: Moved everything to a different USB stick, made the USB stick bootable with some HP program, held the screwdriver for 6+ seconds this time. My bootable USB stick includes the .exe file that was included with older versions of the bios.

When I boot, I get into an ugly version of the bios - it shows my temperatures fluctuating. At the bottom, a blue area saying "This Bin file is incorrect." 3 times. So is it working? Doesn't sound like it... Also there's an A8 code in the bottom right. Motherboard LED shows 66.

EDIT 2: The incorrect bin file message is pretty clear. I've got bios 100-190, there's no 180, plus 1A0, 1B0, 1C0, and 1D0, plus AFUDE238.exe on my bootable USB. I have no idea which one specifically it needs... Please help?

You only need 1 file. If you try few different ones, try one at a time.

Is it listed anywhere which bios these Z97 Gaming 5 mobos come with stock?  I CANNOT try every bios, because my screen is back to showing nothing, so the only way for me to test them is to leave them in my comp for 30 minutes each. Please, help.

Here's an idea for you all to try:

So, your HDMI and possibly a DVI cable were hooked up to your GPU before MSI borked your bios, right? If you unplugged your GPU to fix this problem, you would have moved your monitor signal to the mobo's back panel.

Well, I had been using my HDMI-to-TV this whole time and getting practically nothing. As soon as I plugged in my DVI-to-Monitor to the back panel, it showed me the bios-repair screen. I had to click a few enters, ups, and downs - there's nothing automatic about the process. I ended up going with bios version 1C0 (had them all on my usb, needed to choose one) for z97 gaming 5. It looks to be fixed, all I have to do is plug all my components back in.

EDIT: I chose 1C0 because I saw " version 1.12" in the bios screen and 1C0 = 1.12.

I think you need to RMA it or take to IT services that has SPI programmer.

Stock BIOS depends on manufacture date. Tell S/N of the board, and I can tell you which (most likely) BIOS you had when you bought it.

And Nichrome. You and everyone else recommending RMAs which will take WEEKS for a completely fixable problem. Stop it. Recommend that people keep trying. "If you don't have anything helpful to say, get off the forums", would be the timeless wisdom, yes?

First of all, if you have a problem with our support, please feel free to speak about it with MSI: >>How to contact MSI.<<

Secondly, bricked BIOS is rather hard to be fixed without additional hardware, like SPI programmer. Also I said(see underlined text):
I think you need to RMA it or take to IT services that has SPI programmer.

I  have recently built this new PC. MSI MB and MSI GPU. I want to use "Live Update. It tells me 11 things need updating MB BIOS is the first and MB driver about 5 times etc....  Question. Am I safe in letting Live Update do its thing on auto ?  I don't have any problems, but I do want my build to stay current/ up to date. Below are my build specs. I was about to update everything  but thought  it wouldn't hurt to check if people were having trouble before I dove in.

Hello i have a one of your motherboards.
the model is: Z87-G43 gaming
S/N: 601-8716-050B140311613
I do not know what version of MSI live update i had, but it must have been pretty new since i like to keep all software up to date. The issue here is that the bios update that YOUR software claim to make easier failed and corrupted my motherboard.
It is unusable right now, i can't get in to the bios or anything. It is broken and it's your fault, my question is what can i do?
It is more than a year old and i do not have the kind of money anymore to just go out and 238 euros on  new motherboard.

plus i read afterwards when my motherboard was dead that it has happend to a lot of people, i don't think it's okay to maintaining a software that isn't safe to use and can possible corrupt yout motherboard.

hopefully thanks in advance.
An angry costumer....

Hi

You are speaking to a forum community, and not directly to MSI. To do so, follow this link: >>How to contact MSI.<<
Also, as it was corrupted by MSI's official software, they most likely will repair it without charging you for this.

I updated to 6.1.023. Can't update bios. Says "Download fail ...".



When I start the computer MSI_LiveUpdate_Service.exe always uses 25% CPU (one core). See second attachment.


Had to uninstall to fix crazy CPU usage.

Strange behaviour for that CPU usage.
As for BIOS download, I think that is great it failed. Better to fail at download, than while updating. Personally I'd recommend to stay away from BIOS updaet if it works fine.

Will check later if I get same CPU usage spike.
As for downloading, I won't risk it.


Also report the issue to MSI: >>How to contact MSI.<<

I cannot enter the BIOS anymore. When I try to use GO2BIOS in Fast Boot, my USB devices are started, but the screen does not turn on. If I turn off the machine and turn it back on, I get into Windows. If I disable fast boot there is no bios splash screen, just long black screen.

Hi
:help:
 
I have an Z170A Mpower Titanium board and now i have seen the first updates coming out to MB drivers since i have installed this new pc.
Have tryed to install this 3 or 4 times via the MSI Live update 6 software and its still the same every time i reboot.  Its the Intel ME Drivers that 
comes from version 11.0.6.1194 to 11.6.0.1025.
The program download the update and is installing it and then comes up with the "you have to reboot" message, then after the reboot when you

my MSI live update just tries to open and freezes on the loading screen, nothing shows up in the task manager to end task, its just stays there loading until I restart my PC. I also let it try to open all night to see if it would but no, nothing.

I'm having issues with my Live Update. Every time I would try to update it, it would fail. It also lost the icon and would crash every time I pressed scan. A couple days before this issue it would fail at installing things. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled from the link in the first post. Now, it has the icon back and doesn't crash on scan, but when I press scan it doesn't scan. For instance, here it says I last scanned in October and I just pressed Scan. I also tried to press scan from the pop up box, and it did not scan then either.
Sorry if I'm missing any information, this is my first post.

I got the MSI H170 Gaming M3 motherboard. When I check the live update for a bios update it says up to date but its version C.7. I checked the website and the latest bios version is C.8. Any help would be great :)

Might be MSI has not updated LiveUpsate database that it checks for updates. But don't update BIOS if all works fine :)

Hi I have the H110M Gaming Mobo and live update 6. Currently stating I have the latest Bios 5.5 but when looking at the support download section for this mobo bios it shows there are 2 newer versions. I am curious if this is an issue with live update not recognizing they are there to perform the update and or if I should go ahead and manual perform the updates? Thanks,

Don't bother using LU to update BIOS. Updating BIOS from Windows level is the worst you can do.

Hey everyone - I am wondering if my Live Update is messed up.   I was running the C.A0 BIOS for my MSI B150m Mortar Motherboard since a few days ago and Live Update had the C.60 listed to 'update to'.

So I did that - had to clear the CMOS to get the system to boot along with a few times where I rebooted and 'reset to default settings'.   Machine is running C.60 now.

Should I be running the latest BIOS version that is listed on the MSI site?   Which is C.A0?  Is my Live Update app wrong by showing C.60 as the latest?

My OS: Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
Desktop.
Motherboard Model: 970-GAMING - AMD (MS -7693)
Live Update 6 - Version: 6.2.0.06

After an MSI - Live Update upgrade on Realtek drives few days ago, the Sound Blaster Cinema 2, couldn't detect the audio devises, so generally the app it was inactive like. 

I don't know what to do. Days of google search and even the original Motherboard's dvd won't start (Failed to load Hardware Monitor Driver! This program must run as administrator). Even with right-mouse click "Run as administrator" doing the same.
The Sound Blaster Cinema 2 files that I downloaded from the support MSI site, won't start, setup.exe does nothing! msi.com - Motherboard - support: 970-GAMING - Win7 64
I even tried to uninstall the Realtek and SBC2* drives and re-install them, but without the desired results. 
(* Can't re-install at all!)
Please Help me!
