ICON57 Posted July 1, 2005 Posted July 1, 2005 I work with my cousin, in his art studio, here in Daytona. Last june I built him a rig. Msi mobo K8N Neo2, AMD FX-53, 4 Gigs Ram, raided hd's yada yada yada. This computer is mainly used to power Onyx Rip software for a colorspan wide format printer(60") We do art reproduction for artists and photographers. My cousin is also a photochop expert, so i built him a powerful rig for his needs. Yesterday, I deceide to use this "live update" software from msi, its a windows based flash utility. I can tell you how many times i ignored the program when it told me it found updates for bios, chipset, video..etc. So, i click on update....big mistake The flash seemed to go well, but upon reboot...black screen of death. I went on msi forums, in the bios section, and it was horror story after horror story, on failed bios from this live update. I did call the tech support people, but it is impossible to get a human on the phone. I did get a response to my email. and now i have a rma number, but what a hassle. Pull the mobo, send, wait, hopefully get back working mobo. I just flashed my dfi 875P-T 3 days ago, and had no problems. I have always heard the horrors of a failed flash... moral....if it aint broke, dont fix it...lol thanks for leting me rant people...
