What message you got after save and exit?
OC failed ? Something else?

Read >>Posting Guide<< as well.

Dear

I have the same problem with bios 1.6 and 1.73. After save & exit the screen remains lock and the only way to restart the computer is execute an reset. After this there isn't noting change...

Someone have any idea to solve this problem? Or is an problem of bios too much young?

Yes with 1.4 the process of save works but I would know if this problem is of a batch of mainboards fallacious or if only bios problem that with next official release will be solved :)

Looks to be a BIOS version related issue. Has 1.5 been tried? Notified MSI Tech Support yet?

Have you done >>Clear CMOS Guide<< with power cord removed after the flash?

Have you tried to flash the BIOS with >>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<< ?

Hold on a minute. You mean your board was shipped & delivered with BIOS 1.74? Why in the world would you want to downgrade to 1.5 or 1.6? :think:

Nop, It was shipped with 1.4.

And I canot save the BIOS with 1.5, 1.6 and 1.74. i'm on 1.74 for testing.

I've already clear the CMOS, and I flash the bios only from the UEFI.

I can downgrade on 1.4, but I think it's important to reference this bug because many of us have the same problem.

Then 'all' of you need to contact or open a ticket with MSI Tech Support & inform them so they can get busy on it. Being this is a user to user forum, it so rare an official MSI tech shows up here, this thread may never be read by someone who can do anything about it at the engineering level.

and I flash the bios only from the UEFI.

There is a chance that the problems described here are not primarely caused by the BIOS/UEFI Versions themselves, but rather by the flashing method used to update to the respective versions.  These kind of things have happened before as a result of MSI Live Update flashes, M-Flash flashes and AMI Recovery Flashes.  I do not know what caused such CMOS related problems in particular, however, such issues are not likely to appear when the >> MSI HQ Forum USB Tool<< is used to prepare an USB Flash Drive for a safe DOS based flash which utilizes the proper AMI/Aptio Flashing Utility for DOS and the recommended flash commands/switches.

Before everybody starts blaming the BIOS Releases themselves for the "don't save" problem, please try an update with the help of the MSIHQ Utility. I know a user in the German Forum who has used it without problems, now using the latest 1.7b4 release.  He has not reported any CMOS Setting problems whatsoever. And yes, he used the latest version of the MSIHQ Utility to update his BIOS.  So, perhaps the "solution" is just as simple as that.

The board has a secondary BACKUP BIOS Chip, so the risk of performing more test flashes is quite manageable.  :biggthumbsup:

Hi Svet, yes - I used the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher.. along with all of the instructions given in the guides, including clearing the CMOS afterwards.

When I go back to 1.4, everything works again. I get the save issue in both 1.6 and 1.7b4 - the mouse freezes and the computer just sits there until hard reset.

I want 1.7b4 for the pll overvolt fix.. at the moment I can't get past 4.2 ghz with i7-2600k and a high perf noctua cooler, fairly sure it is not the cpu/temp/volts holding me back.

I also have a very strange issue in the bios is reporting my CPU as running at 20 GHz (which it clearly isn't) - although windows cpuz reports the correct speed. A very similar issue for my DRAM speeds, they are also reported as being something extremely high in the bios but are correct in cpuz.

There is also an issue with turning off spread spectrum in 1.6/1.7 - when I do this, the bios hangs (same way as it hangs when trying to save in 1.6/1.7, mouse freezes and have to hard reset).

In short quite a number of issues here.

I have the very same problem. Bios 1.4 works just fine, but anything newer and I get a freeze on save. Back to 1.4 and it saves without freeze. I tried M-Flash and MSIHQUT 1.19e. Both ways flash without any problem, but I can't save - the system freezes and just sits on the Bios screen until I do a reset. Everything is on stock speeds, the temperatures are well within range and memtest shows no problems.
And to tackle that question before it comes up - I followed all the procedures including clearing the CMOS.

System:

Board: P67A-GD65
CPU: i5-2500K
RAM: 2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800 (running on 1333 at the moment)
Storage: Intel X25-M G2
PSU: Seasonic X-460

I've already contacted support. Let's see what they come up with.

I wonder too if it might be a specific version of the mobo. At this stage I am unfortunately looking at returning it and going with asus instead (don't really want to rip my system open again but will if I have to).

I heard there is a 1.8 beta bios out there somewhere (saw it on a german website)... I wonder if we can get access to it here, I would like to try it to see if it helps.

Just tried 1.8b5, but unfortunately no improvement. It flashes without problems, I clear the CMOS, go into the BIOS, hit "save and exit" and that's it. Freeze.
Back to 1.4 and the problem is gone. It makes no sense.
To rule out as much as possible - I tried flashing with just the keyboard and one memory module, no other peripherals, no SATA-devices attached - but of course: no difference as well. Freeze on save.

Yeah, I have read that you have already done that.  My statement was meant as a piece general advice to all users experiencing this problem and have not reported it to technical support yet.  The more users file an individual report the better in terms of immediate attention to the issue.   :biggthumbsup:

Because of the fact that a lot of users do not have this problem with any of the BIOS Versions mentioned here, it may be somewhat difficult to reproduce.  That is why it is important that precise system specifications are given to determine if this is some kind of compatibility problem with a type of component which the problematic cases gathered here have a common.

The idea that this could have been caused by a compatibility issue with certain SSDs was more or less proved wrong by DerBert's test. 

Perhaps another component that deserves attention are the video cards used here. 

@DerBert:  What video card is in your system (brand/model name)?

well - not necessarily, it's good to get multiple results. If it turns out that Derbert and I have the same revision of mobo or something like that it is good to see as many results as possible across multiple bios versions.

Can you update it to the latest version v1.7?
http://download2.msi.com/files/downloads/bos_exe/7681v17.zip

After update, please disconnect the AC cord from your power supply for 10 seconds, reconnect it and power it on.
Press DEL to enter UEFI, and load defaults, then press F10 to save & exit.

Sincerely,

Did you flash UEFI using M-Flash? If not, can you try flashing using M-Flash?

Thanks.

Used the 1.7 version flashed using your description (M-flash). then disconnected the power cord.
Got into the bios and did load setup defaults......... and again freezes.

Also did some CLear CMOS afterwards but still freezes.....

Same here. I've tried flashing with M-Flash and the MSI HQ flash utility. Still no difference. 1.4 works fine, everything after (I've tried 1.5, 1.6, 1.7b4, 1.7, 1.8b5) results in a freeze on save. The problem seems to be the saving, as both "Save Changes" and "Save Changes and Reset" freeze the system.

Hi I have a similar problem to this. The BIOS says the CPU clock speed is 20.84GHz as others have mentioned - but for me once I see that the system locks up within 5 seconds. This is very annoying as I can't change any settings in the OC screen. What's more annoying is that I'm running BIOS version 1.4 which others have got working fine. Full details below.

Is everybody placing just one RAM stick in the primary dimm slot with these boards as instructed in the manual for the initial startup? With these boards, it is the first 'BLUE' slot next to the CPU, not the 2nd black like P/H55 & X58.

I put 2 sticks of RAM in... does this make a difference because my computer is running fine other than this one issue. The manual says "always insert the memory modules into the DIMM1 first" but it doesn't say anything about using just 1 stick of RAM (it's dual channel how could I use jsut one stick of RAM)  :rolleyes:
