MSI REWARDS - PARTICIPATE ON MSI FORUMS, GET REWARDS
What BIOS do have now? What you have in your sig is not BIOS revision. See picture below to see what I mean. See where 1.D is the BIOS revision number in the 2nd line. How are you trying to flash BIOS? Do not use 'Live Update' Edit: Do you have the 89W or the 125W version of that CPU? If you have the 125W you run the risk of burning out the CPU VRM MOSFETs. 125W CPUs are not supported on the K9VGM-V . 2nd time today for me to give this warning. ADV6000IAA5DO (89W) ADX6000IAA6CZ (125W)
Leave BIOS alone, read here: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=103441.0A new BIOS can't help with your issue.Also never attempt BIOS update when you have stability troubles.becuase games are choppy. Like WoW, tibia and such. And my computer shall make those games.Do a new fresh OS installation, lower in game settings.Switch to XP instead Vista.
Like said, if a problem isn't explicitely fixed by a BIOS update, don't.Choppy video sounds like a problem with the graphics card driver.But I did this week's guessing just in the other post, so please say:What the BSOD say.What game is choppy - say em all, please.PSU is also very good to know.
Whether you suck at computers or not has nothing to do with it. We are here to help each other out with solving problems and advice/warnings where needed. What makes you think a BIOS update will fix your problem? What you decribed does not look like a BIOS problem. Read this >> Forum USB BIOS flashtool << and >> motherboard & BIOS ID << Download & run this >> Central Brain ID << it will give you the OPN number of your CPU.
Damn i just saw that im using the ADX6000IAA6CZ (125W)!!!
Look at this and u see it is not updated: http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/29/asasdadfy4.jpg
Allready said DO NOT USE LIVE UPDATE!!! What part of no/not don't you understand? We are trying to help you but you are ignoring our advice. Your primary concern is that you are using a CPU that is not supported by your MB. Continued use of that combination will kill the MB. As far as your games go you can't compare playing one with another as each one will react different and stress the graphics in different ways.
Well if you don't have the money to change MB or CPU then use it till it dies. There's nothing we can do about that except let you know what we have allready said. As for your games that could be Vista and driver problems as well as weak PSU being a contributing factor. Do you have WinXP that you can try and see if things improve with that OS?
