    Sorry for my broken english, I'm still learning :)

    Ok. Few weeks ago i was trying to flash a new BIOS on this MoBo. MSI Live Updata says, that everything is fine, but after rebooting my computer won't start(CPU cooler is working, MoBo is trying to initialize HDD and Optical Drive, but no POST and no speaker signals) :banghead:

    The trick with automatic BIOS recovery from FDD doesn't work(motherboard cannot initialize the floppy drive)...

    Is there any other methods of BIOS recovery? Or is it still possible to fix it by myself?

    Try flashing the CMOS jumper, or removing the battery for 10 minutes usually resets the mobo!
