Hey all,

I used MSI LiveUpdate3 to update my BIOS (from v1.9 to v1.B) for MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum. After the succesful update, the computer rebooted and logged in fine to Windows and everything.

However, I noticed the default BIOS settings were restored so I tried to get into BIOS to change them but when I hit DEL, instead of the BIOS screen a black screen with a blinking cursor is shown and the computer does not do anything further.

I was stupid enough to not create a "BIOS Recovery Disk" when prompted, since I had updated my BIOS many times. So I decided to log into MSI's web page and the latest version listed there is v1.A so I guess MSI LiveUpdate3 is wrong! I downloaded and created a boot disk and re-flashed my BIOS, but to no avail - I still cannot enter BIOS!

Any suggestions? Perhaps I should try reflashing with the BIOS I had before (v1.9)?
The computer works fine but is unstable because it has the default values in BIOS and you all know that mobo needs to be tweaked a bit to be extra-stable :tazz:

Thanks in advance.

And try different keys, like F1 or F2 to get in. That may have been changed in the procedure.
