Well I did it! I knew something would go bad and it did:( I started with the MSI Motherboard Updater, went through the steps... Pushed Home and CTL, but got no beeps... I now have no Video signal, and it only seems to be trying to read the two CD drives not the Floppy.
I tried resetting the CMOS but it did no good.

I was looking at sending the chip to a company for reflashing, but it is not removable:(

Is there any way around this? Help me look goo to the wife and kids for a change:)

Thanks
Phil

Return to the reseller for another one. I hope there's still warranty on it.

Tell them it died all of a sudden during regular use and you don't know what caused it.
