Dual BIOS Control LED
« on: 23-January-11, 15:40:14 »

If the LED blinks every 1 second, it is everything okay? I read the motherboard manual that is led from the BIOS, I saw that in some cases where the LED light does not blink, she was always constant blue light



still blinks every second

From your manual:

Off: Normal.
Blink (1 cycle/second): The primary BIOS is failed.
Fast Blink (10 cycles/second): The second BIOS is failed.
Solid: Both of primary and second BIOS are failed.

Did this condition exist right out of the box & on initial startup?

that is, the council can not fix it so as not to blink? in my case, what does it mean that blinks every 1 second?

Many thanks, everything is in place.

I have a question, I currently have bios 1.8b6 + ME and overclocking the processor did this operation LED Dual BIOS, if these settings are inscribed on the second BIOS?

as I updated the bios to another version, or I would have to perform this operation with Dual BIOS LED? and now as a second bios was updated to 1.8b6, the first and second with the new update will be the same version?

sorry for my english

A blinking LED in this case means the primary BIOS has failed. Turning off the LED control is a bad idea.

I know, but I did also link the PDF. So I helped and also commented, thats all. The LED on my board is on all the time but I don't think its related to the intel boards. Just commenting about my situation with the blue led. I actually like it, I didn't have to buy any LED fans or anything, Free led! Looks nice through the side panel window.

well i select the dual bios boot option as mentioned in the pdf file -- and i save and rebooted - but i did not see any flashing of the bios ..

i mean if the led blinks than it means primary bios fail -- then shouldnt it be re flashed when i follow the pdf -- coz the mobo did not give any message as mentioned in the picture of flashing etc

and how do i know if i am on the dual bios or some thing ---

It is possible the procedure in the pdf has changed for this new generation of B3 multi BIOS boards. It would be best to open a ticket with MSI Tech Support & ask them if a revised pdf is available for your board. It may have changed for the P67A-GD65(B3) like I have as well. The last time I had a primary BIOS failure, it didn't show a screen of it flashing from the backup to the primary either, but did with the B2 board.

well if the primary led lights blinks every 1 sec it means primary bios fail -- hence secondary bios is loaded -- but my question is when i select the bios auto update function to enabled - i dont see any sort of flashing screen as shown above ..could be it does it with out notification or it does not flash it .

anyway when the dual bios button is pressed system boot - but which bios does it load -- from the documentation it shows teriatory bios  --- but i still dont see any flashing screen .

how should i know if the primary bios is recovered -- even though the option for bios update has been selcted

If you no longer get the flashing LED.

well if the secondary bios updates the primary bios -- then i think some message should show up saying bios flashing or some thing or it does not show it and does it it self .

even if the auto update bios option is turned on ...there is no message which appears .

also i think it only flashes when both primari and secondary bios are not working -

We cannot change your BIOS or the logic of it here. But do open a ticket with MSI to discuss your idea. >>How to contact MSI.<<

Interesting thread. Would have come in handy for me a few hours ago.

My bios LED was blinking, and instead of researching the correct way to fix it, I flashed bios 2 thinking it would fix bios 1 heh.. now they both have latest bios. I was able to fix bios 1 by just removing cmos battery and using jbat1 clear jumper. Bios 1 got screwed up on me when I was testing boot bios off flash drive function.

For the MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) this is all it says in the Manual, so if primary and secondary have failed is it RMA time, not that it's happend to me, I'm just curious.

In case your manual doesn't have this information in it, download the more comprehensive pdf manual available from the Global Website for your specific mainboard.



Solid BIOS LED indicates complete failure of both chips. Recovery attempts, & battery removed clearing of CMOS can be tried prior to RMA.

Heh.. revive a old thread just to say that it saved my bacon. Info on refreshing the primary BIOS on my trusty P67A-GD65 B3 was very useful.  :agrees:
