MS-7721 MB - update BIOS?
« on: 19-February-13, 06:52:36 »

This is my first MSI MB.  I would expect this to be much easier.

I don't see anywhere on the website to download the latest BIOS update.  I went to the support page and entered the model number and got nothing on BIOS.  I ran LiveUpdate5 on my computer, it said it downloaded a BIOS update.  I don't find it anywhere.  And nothing I click on in that interface installs what I downloaded.

How do I install the latest BIOS update for this MB?

that code is useless what is the model out of these?

FM2-A85XMA-E35
FM2-A85XMA-P33
FM2-A75MA-P33
FM2-A55M-P33
FM2-A75MA-E35
FM2-A55M-E33
FM2-A55M-E35

all have the same motherboard PCB model code (MS-7721) that you posted! all have BIOS files for each just make sure you get the correct model number and >>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<< as the included M-Flash utility and Live Update programs are known for being hit and miss with bricking boards that MSI supply and its much safer to use the Forum Flasher to update the BIOS!

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/FM2-A75MA-E35.html#/?div=BIOS

there are 3 versions available there!

1.1
1.5
1.7

the missing ones on there would be because those ones had some serious bugs! and seriously don't ever let live update perform a BIOS update as it works in windows and is well known for bricking boards! <--- i would even suggest you UN-install it immediately as if it ever does do a blind BIOS flash its got a 50/50 chance that the board will die!

Hey!  I have an FM2-A55M-E33 main board.  I tend to over think things, so i wanted to ask you a question.  You said you recommend "UN-installing it".  Here's my situation.  I am not having any significant problems that I'm aware if, currently. But, it seems that sometimes it is said to make sure you have your bios updated, and sometimes it's said that if your BIOS is ok, do not update.  In any case, maybe a month ago, I went to this site and found the "user friendly" live update 5 option.  I believe prior to installing it, I had access to OC genie 2 ( I know for sure that at some point, I couldnt install it, and I have used it before).  I did the live update from windows.  My computer eventually just crashed.  I went online with my phone and found out how to clear the cmos(?) settings by removing the battery.  I began having trouble updating features like OC genie 2, using this live update 5.  I just went ahead and uninstalled the live update 5 and the other applications, like click bios2, some sort of network genie etc, using the control panel, and then just searching my computer for any remains in my C drive.  Then I went back and installed the same Bios V (10.5) that was already installed, only this time, I did it using a bootable usb drive in BIOS.  I was hoping to somehow completely uninstall the Live install that I did. I was hoping the update would go back to 10.3 somehow. But with the BIOS version being the same, 10.5, is there something else I should do?  Recently, I have tried reinstalling live update just to get some of the applications, and for whatever reason, I cannot install OC genie 2.  I'm not exactly tech savvy, but I had already updated the BIOS the wrong way before I knew it was the wrong way.  Do you have any other recommendations for my motherboard?  In that other post you commented on, the motherboard was slightly different.  I have two available BIOS updates.  But before I do anything, I'm trying to figure out what the best thing to do would be.  Any help would be appreciated!  I'm fairly new to most of this.
