GT60 Notebook Bios Update Download Issue
« on: 09-January-13, 21:19:34 »

Hi. I'm getting the blue screen of death on my 2012 GT60 0NC notebook (windows 7, no RAID). MSI recommends I update the bios. I download this zip here…

msi.com/service/download/bios-18654.html

But the guide…

msi.com/files/pdf/How_to_make_a_bootable_flash_disk_and_to_flash_BIOS_f.pdf

Says "2) Un‐zip the file and verify if there are 2 files located inside namely, “flash.bat” and “BIOS.ROM”."

The zip file has 4 files in it. BIOS.ROM is missing and the flash.bat says it is incompatible with a 64 bit Windows install. Where/How do I find the correct download to update to the latest BIOS?

I don't have the blue screen of death but My turbo button doesn't light up and turns off automatically, so I'm trying to update my bios to see if that'll fix it. My bios ver is 1.00.
I too downloaded the bios from msi site and when i run it says " unsupported 16 bit application". running in compatibility mode xp sp3 doesnt work...Live update doesn't show an update for my BIOS so how do i update it?

barabones don't have turbo as OC function, but only retail models

Seems my thread got a bit hijacked...  :bonk:

what's your current bios version?

Under dxdiag it says my bios is: MSI GT60 0NC E16F3IMS VER: 20.0C MSI-NOTEBOOK

or do I need to boot into the BIOS to find the current version?
