A beep is needed to be able to tell the graphics isn't working?
Wasn't really aiming that comment at you; my point was that a series
of beeps could help troubleshoot a no video problem.
And I like your other suggestions. I'll pass on v2.1 since my system might have been shipped with that and I installed the speaker during the build. I might try pulling memory next time I power off. I did notify MSI Support about this thread and they seem to be very good.
Aside from this the only other glitch I have is I can't find how to toggle Bios Protection in v2.4. Support says
advanced bios feature should contain the bios protection setting
, but I sure can't find it! I know I had to change it to do my first flash.
Will update this thread when support replies.
