Okay, here's my situation. I was setting up my new computer, and was using the MSI update tool to update some stuff.. now I'm not really that computer smart, and it recommended updated the BIOS, so I did so, they were Flashed in windows, not in DOS. After the flash it rebooted, but didn't boot to windows, it just hung there. So I turned the system off, twice, and the 3rd time it booted into windows. Now I get random restarts mostly while playing Oblivion. Not sure if it's related, but none the less I am worried about my BIOS, as to I do not know what version my BIOS was before it was fashed to version 1.5
So.. what should I do to ensure it was flashed correctly? my system boots and runs...so it can't be too broken perhaps.. Maybe I should flash them again to be sure?
Maybe someone can tell me which version they might have been before hand?
Help me make a bootable CD, because I don't have a floppy drive =(

Someone please help, I am very worried I ruined something in there.. and just spent all my money on this rig, and can't afford a new board for quite some time!

Please, and thank you all in advance.
