Re: Computer still not booting after BIOS flash

Hi: A brand new battery straight out of the blister pack, and the board is a genuine MSI board as far as I know. At least, it was in an MSI box when I bought it, and the box was sealed. I don't know if this helps, but I have two identical machines. I.e. same motherboard, same configuration, etc, and...

Re: Computer still not booting after BIOS flash

Hi. Thanks for your time: I have replaced the memory, and I have tried running with only one RAM slot in use (and I have tried this with both RAM slots). I have run with all the hard drives disconnected. I have run with the CD/DVD drive disconnected. I have not checked the power supply, but I have r...

Computer still not booting after BIOS flash

My previous post "Computer not starting after BIOS flashed" (May 31st) may be regarded as closed. I can't see anywhere to mark it as such.

Re: Computer not starting after BIOS flashed

Hi: Thanks for the ideas. This is a slightly longer post. I removed the battery and installed another one. The machine booted up, and came up with the MSI splash screen, and then showed the boot info, and informed me that the BIOS settings were wrong, and that the date and time were not set. It gave...

Computer not starting after BIOS flashed

I have an Intel socket 775 machine with an MSI motherboard. I flashed the BIOS as prescribed, from a bootable USB flash disk, aand the flash process completed normally. The machine started up quite nicely with the checksum error message, so I took F1 and went into the BIOS. The BIOS could see the dr...
