Hi, I'm having a ton of problems with this board and was wondering if you guys can help me. I tried overclocking this board with the onboard switches but it would not allow me to overclock AND run my DDR2 ram at 1066mhz ganged mode even with the correct dram voltage.
I looked up the problem which brought me here and found the new bios update but i had a huge problem successfully updating it. I downloaded the zip filehttp://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=1&prod_no=1883
Inside the zip file was the bios image called A7549AMS.800
I booted up into the bios settings and loaded the M-Flash utility but could not find the file on my USB stick. I realized it was looking for a .G00 file extension. I renamed the extension .800 to .G00 and M-Flash found it. I pressed Enter but it said RomID was wrong so i went back to make sure i downloaded the correct file. Anyways it was the correct file so i proceeded with the flash and it booted into the bios flashing screen and it finished flashing then the screen went all black. I left it like that for a couple of minutes and then restarted the computer but now it wouldnt boot at all just a black screen.
I called newegg and they RMA it for me and a new board should be coming tomorrow. Anyways was this the correct file and procedure or did i screw something up?
