  1. PC bricks after Bios Update


    I have an MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi board with a Ryzen 9 3900x Overclocked to 4.47ghz.
    Main display is on a Gigabyte 2080Ti and the other 2 are on a Radeon RX580.
    Windows 10 on an nvme m.2

    Using MSI Dragon Center to download and install updates will reach 100% and reboot but then the tower becomes a paperweight.

    It will turn on, all the led's and fans running but there's no display and I'll see VGA led on the motherboard light up.

    Removing the CMOS battery resets my BIOS and I can use my computer again.

    I've tried to update my BIOS 3 times this year....

    :)

    MSI 5870 BIOS Update

    Still can't reproduce. Could you please post the exact BIOSes that produce the issue?

  3. Desktop PC boots to black screen after ASUS BIOS update

    After searching around Google, I came upon a post where somebody experienced a similar issue and managed to fix it by simply doing the following:

    1. Force the PC to shut down
    2. Unplug the power cord from the PSU for 20-30 seconds; enough so that there's no dormant power left over
    3. For good measure, if your motherboard/CPU has embedded graphics, temporarily connect your monitor to that instead of your GPU
    4. Plug the power cord back in and then boot the system

    Some notes:

    • This is strictly for desktop PCs (not laptops). If you're on a laptop,
      you might need to disconnect both the power adapter and the battery
      to completely shut it down
    • If your system was not bricked because of the BIOS update, you should see a
      message on the screen stating that the BIOS update is resuming, and
      that you should not cut the power to the PC
    • If the BIOS update was successful, your PC will restart again to a
      vanilla POST screen (not the splash screen) and you will need to
      press F1 here and to set everything in the BIOS back to your own

      preferences again
    • From what I can tell, the BIOS update did succeed after the

      flash in the BIOS, but the installation simply glitched out and
      failed to complete the remaining steps after restarting

    Some things I should've done before I updated my BIOS:

    • Saved a copy of my BIOS configurations to a .CMO file in a USB drive
    • Reset my BIOS settings to default before the update
