M670 ( MS-1632) FLASH BIOS AND LAPTOP DEAD
« on: 30-April-11, 15:49:05 »

I made the flash at the bios with the last version from the msi website, and i had an error at the checksum. After the boot, the screen remains black, and the laptop doesn't boot.
Until the flash, the laptop use to remain stock, and the screen would get lines on it.
Can you please give me a solution for the problem ?

Reset EC ->>>Forum FAQ<<

If that doesn't help, check out the BIOS recovery in the FAQ and hope it helps.
Any clue what BIOS you used before?

For recovery you need to know your previous BIOS else it may not work.

http://msi.com/service/download/bios-6828.html - this is my previous version, for vista, and i had problems with the laptop getting stuck very often and gridlines on the screen. When I installed windows 7 , the system worked very well and after the automatic updates of the windows, the problems started to appear again.

http://msi.com/service/download/bios-6827.html - this is the new version, which at the moment of the bios update had an error at checksum.

the bios recovery  doesn't work, neither with usb-floppy, nor with usb stick or cd . All of them maid to be bootable.
i can only hear the cdrom working, for about 30 sec.

Nothing has to be bootable.
You have to put the previous BIOS on the USB-stick in it's original name and press a special key-sequence.
Then it should start reading CD or USB (fat32 format) and search for the file.

This may help a bit more: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=131886.0

Hello.
I used USB-floppy, but it didn't work. The led from the usb-floppy doesn't switch on.
Only the cd-rw works, but for only 28 sec.
I tried with AMIBOOT.ROM , i tried with cd-bootable with autoexec.bat , in autoexec.bat i wrot the command present in Flash.bat
Nothing works.
Can you give me an idea ?

I tried with A1632NMS.ROM, placed over a blank formatted diskette, with USB-FLOPPY.
I tried, as well with CTRL-HOME, as without it, but it didn't work.
