So I just got a new motherboard delivered to me yesterday from Newegg and installed it right away. At first it was working fine I just had a few other problems going on, just put a newly bought Pentium Dual core inside it and was trying to increase the processor speed thru the bios bus clock. So what happened was my friend recommended me trying to get to 3.8 ghz (originally 3.00 ghz), when I was currently on 3.3 ghz or so from increasing the bus clock to 220 (default 200). That seemed to be working out fine so I decided I'd try to get to 3.8. The bus clock on that turned out to be 254, and at the time I didnt even think about lowering ratios or ram/gpu affections. I restarted after saving the settings and then my computer started to just stop loading all together. It was like it was trying to load everything normally but would stop at random points and stay on whatever screen was there last.
So now comes the problem, after a few reboots of freezing, I finally ended up just getting a Bios recovery requested screen before any type of other screen shows up. Its telling me to put in a usb with the bios file for the motherboard. I've had my friend helping me look up problems and we've tried soo many tests, all of them resulted in the same bios recovery screen.
-Using 1 stick of unnaffected RAM
-Clearing CMOS by taking out battery for at least 5 minutes
-CMOS Jumper clearing
I've also tried to create a bootable USB for bios flashing and put in the latest bios file and flash tool onto the USB. That results in a screen saying,
"Please copy latest BIOS file into USB flash drive to recover your BIOS
File not found"
then it loops that until I take out the USB or turn off the computer.
Also there is no FSB switch on my motherboard like there is supposed to be, there is an empty square with 6 solder holes on the board so I cant toggle the FSB back to default using those switches.
I was using this to make a usb bootable for bios flashing: http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-boot-usb-stick.htm
and I was using these files from MSI to transfer on USB after making bootable USB: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G31TM-P21.html#/?div=BIOS
So... if anyone can help me to make this work at all I would very much appreciate it. Once I get the bios working again (assuming I can) I'm keeping to default.
