Hi folks, I have a brand new problem. I have a B350 Tomahawk and an RTX 3050, and yesterday I made the mistake of upgrading the bios from 7A34v1M to 7A34v1Q6 (latest). To my dismay after a successful upgrade process the pc rebooted and it got stuck on 1 long, 2 short beep codes (gpu ez led). It would have been extremely unlikely that the 3050 died just there, but after some testing I got a GTX 750 and it booted, I tried everything, all the ports, disconnecting ssd/hdd/m2/usbs tried the mobo hdmi port (I read it somewhere that you get video there, maybe), and after talking with support today I tried changing the (windows) booting process from CSM to UEFI to no avail. With the 3050 it won't boot, with the 750 it does just fine. So, due diligence today I went to another PC to test the 3050 and it works too, so the gpu works, the mobo works, the PSU works.
To me it's an odd incompatibility between B350 tomahawk, RTX 3050 and this bios version 7A34v1Q6. I'm angry because I can't do a DOWNGRADE that could solve this grave issue AND on the web, refering to this BIOS version the changelog states:
- Update to AGESA ComboAm4v2PI 18.104.22.168.
- Improve the intermittent performance stuttering issue.
- Change the default setting of Secure Boot.
- Remove the support of AMD Bristol Ridge series APU.
Nowhere it says *WARNING* AFTER UPGRADING WITH THIS BIOS YOU CAN'T DOWNGRADE ANYMORE *WARNING*
It is clear now that I should have never updated, but I'm stuck now with an older gpu or a non-booting mobo. I pasted my experience on reddit and it happened to another customer, and I think many with this combination are bound to happen.
So, the question, I read that this flash tool is kinda miraculous, it may be what I need, but also says that it is NOT for 3XX mobos, like the one I have. So do you have any ideas, should I try to downgrade anyway?
Thanks in advance
