Solved: Failed to flash BIOS [MSI P45 Neo-F LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard]

Q: Solved: Failed to flash BIOS [MSI P45 Neo-F LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard]


I'm sorry for posting such a horrible mistake. I'll just break it down really easely and hope for someone to be kind enough to resque my stupid ***.

I just upgraded my OS from W7 to W10 doing a clean install and figured out I had to install a bunch of essential drivers all over again, so I though it would be a good idea to start out with my motherboard. My motherboard is a "P45 NEO-F", so I went over to it's support page (link) to download all of the latest drivers and utilities for that model. Then I saw the "BIOS" section, and thougt I should flash the BIOS first of all, for no reason. So I downloaded the "AMI BIOS 4.4", which was the latest one, extracted the files on to a USB-stick, booted the whole thing up, went to M-FLASH in BIOS, chose the "A7519IMS.440"-file on the stick, flashed the BIOS, rebooted and now I get a "bad checksum".

I didn't even take a backup of the old file from BIOS, because I couldn't even think of this not working. Bonus points for that!

So what do I do now, being the sorry sod that I am?

I have a T61 15.4" widescreen Machine Type 6457 with the infamous NVIDIA GPU issue.  I thought it had "died" a few years back and had been sitting in my basement until recently when I decided to work on it.  As expected there is the usual green/ yellow vertical lines on the LCD display.  That said, when I plugged in an external monitor using the VGA output, the output is correct.  So my question is: do I really have a bad GPU or is it the LCD display that died?

A:T61 failed Nvidia GPU motherboard to Intel GPU motherboard swap in 2018

There is no way to know without testing.  There are separate connections from the video controller for the LCD and for the external monitor.  With a GPU failure, either or both could be bad.  The only way to be certain is to try a different motherboard or panel.  If the entire width has lines, it is more likely to be the GPU.  One thing to try is to press lightly on the LCD bezel at the point where the lines start.  If the lines change, the panel is more likely to be the problem.  As I said, the only sure way is to swap something.

I have a 2008 T61 that died in September 2013, after what I believe is the infamous Nvidia GPU failure. I replaced it shortly after with a T440p, which is my current primary PC, but I am considering procuring a used Intel GPU board and spending a few hours swapping out the failed motherboard to bring it back to life to have a second computer handy. I would like to use the existing heatsink/fan. Is there anything I need to consider? I did read the design is slightly different, but it should still work and supposedly should cool better than the Intel heatsink/fan. I've watched a few YouTube videos online and went through the hardware maintenance manual. I'm familiar with disassembly up to the RAM, hard drive, palm rest and keyboard, but haven't gone further than that before. Unfortunately it looks like the official Lenovo Service Training videos for the T61 have been removed. Those would have been helpful. So any tips/suggestions would be appreciated.

I've been trying, unsuccessfully, to update BIOS so that I can upgrade my processor from a 1.5 MHz to a 2.4 MHz pentium 4 (currently I have a Pentium 4, 1.5 MHZ, 400 MHz bus, 512 MB ram, windows XP).

To update BIOS (the Motherboard is an Intel D845HV with 845 chipset), I downloaded Intel's "express bios update utility" (http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scr...XP+Home+Edition&lang=eng&strOSs=45&submit=Go!) but when my computer boots it always say the upgrade was unsuccessful and it refers me to the readme file. I have not been able to figure out what I'm doing wrong - but I've never tried this before!

One thing it says is to shutdown all windows programs. I have both Norton internet security and Roxio Go Back installed. Could these programs be part of the problem? Can I simply disable these programs, or do I need to completely uninstall them (a real pain!)? Is there another possible cause? Is there another way to do this? Thanks!

A:Unable to update BIOS for Intel D845HV motherboard

I have tried Windows XP, Vista and 7; also Linux Ubuntu 8.1, Fedora 10, Mandriva one and OpenSuse. All fail at various stages and I suspect it has something to do with the BIOS settings. Windows XP installation freezes at installation start "Setup is inspecting ......", while Vista, 7 and the Linuxes when configuring the partitions. The BIOS has been set at defaults.

My intel 3.2 Prescott Just got overheated and died on me after using it for quite a few years.. so now I'm looking for a cheap solution to get my computer running using all the same parts. I'm considering buying a 3.4 GHZ Pentium 4 Processor and possibly a new motherboard but keeping all pci cards and graphics card as well as the ram.

I'm looking for a motherboard that supports:

Intel 3.4 Ghz Hyper Threading FSB 800
DDR PC 3200 (supporting 4GB of ram)
Dual-Channel DDR400 Memory
5 PCI slots
and an AGP slot (8x)

The only thing I've found that looks decent is the asus P4P800-E Deluxe Edition, which seems a bit pricey considering how old it is and how not that fast it is compared to the newer mobos. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

Short version :-
I used a non compatible cpu which has the effect of leaving the board switched on.

Long version :-
I bought the DG45ID off ebay and got a 775 CPU to go in it.
I switched on......the fan worked and HDD was active but no screen.The
USBs were active.When I switched off at the mains.When I switched on
it powered up without the start button.
I realised I had a non compatible cpu.I bought an E2140.
The first time I switched on at the mains it came on (without the start button)
but subsequently I had to press start to power the board (ie as normal).

CMOS jumper.
When I bought it the jumper connected pin 3 with the LED pin.
I assume that is like a removed jumper......ie BIOS flash mode.
Hence, when I connected a DVD drive it crashed.I assume it was looking
for a .bio file.
Nothing I could do would recover the board.The green standby light came on
but nothing else.It was dead.No USB power,no fans ,nothing.

I remembered the wrong CPU that had left the board "switched on".
I put it in and it behaved as before....power but no monitor.
I then replaced the E2140 and hey presto I was in.......but only
on cmos recovery......there was no bios.But the USBs were active.So
I removed the jumper,flashed the BIOS from a USB stick and it's up and

NB. the intel manual is wrong regarding the CMOS pins.
It shows pin 1 closest to the battery.That is actually pin 3.

Im not understanding what the X.XXGHz mean...is that based on the processor?

I understand that Intel Core Duo has 2 processors and thats why they are so great....does that mean that it is 2.0GHz per processor? so its really 4.0GHz?

Hay there, I recently obtained a new system for a very cheap price with a surprisingly good processer with it.

New computer: -

Intel DQ45EK mobo
Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.9GHz Socket 775
3GB ram (max 4gb)

Current Computer: -

Gigabyte P31-D3SL mobo
Intel Pentium D 925 3.00 GHz Socket 775
4GB ram

Alright so the issue is I want to swap the processors around but when I put the Pentium D into the Intel DQ45EK mobo it comes up with a blank screen with the fan blowing intensely, reboots and then just hangs with the intense fan speed. When I swap back the processors the orignal Core 2 Duo does this same thing but then it goes back to normal after a few reboots. The E7500 works fine in my old system though... I would think the pentium D would be widely supported x-x

Any ideas cause im lost at the moment.

If it's an OEM (brand name) PC, you should only use BIOS updates supplied by that manufacturer (via their website), as those direct from Intel may not be the right one for that board, so you could end up with a non-working PC and no easy way to fix it.

The machine read the flash drive, erased, programmed, and told me to reboot to get system back. Now nothing, just a blank screen, no POST. All fans and lights, the hard drive turns on.

Hey after I woke up the computer the display wouldn't show anything so I turned the computer off. Then I tried to boot it. The boot was follow by 2 beeps pause 2 beeps... Then nothing. On Intel website I found that its a video error( I hope for every Intel motherboard cuz I don't remember which one I have exactly. After that I tried unplugging the GPU and plug monitors to the motherboard (it should have some GPu on motherboard) the same thing happened. So I cleaned the whole computer tried the boot with 4 different RAMS in different slots every time. No luck. Tried unplugging everything from motherboard and let it like that for a while then repeat. No luck. the conclusion I came to is that something is wrong with motherboard since two sets of ram, 2 different GPus and 2 different monitors aren't working(yes forgot that I tried 2 different monitors) Just want to verify my conclusion before I buy new components.

A:I need help with an intel motherboard

you can buy motherboards from other manufacturers than intel that support the intel CPU. Intel has two sockets in mainstream right now.. the socket 478 and socket 775 so that is a determining factor since they are not interchangeable. Also the size of the board, ATX or mATX and the support of DDR or DDR2 RAM will influence your decision. As for supporting 2.6 Ghz or higher, most new boards nowadays can handle that. Just go to www.newegg.com or www.tigerdirect.com and click on the motherboard categories and input your selections into the drop down boxes.

I have new printer but would like to use up my 600 ink... 2) Within a month my Norton Antivirus started saying my 'trial' version was about to end. - no real help from Norton - still trying to get help from them - was renewed in May. 3) also had problems with wireless keyboard & mouse but I finally got that fixed.

Is the motherboard still covered by warranty?
It sounds like you may need to use it. If the power supply tests ok then probably the only way to fix it would be to track down the faulty power trace on the motherboard-this is not something you could undertake most likely- I'm assuming there's a short somewhere as the 4/8 pin is usually responsible for supplying power to the PCI lanes.

A:intel motherboard help

If your motherboard doesn't have the matching connector then you don't need use the plug. With any power supply you only need to use the connections that your specific system requires.

I bought a computer on eBay with 1 Gig of ram and an Intel Pentium D 805 2.66Ghz processor. It had an AsRock board and when I first attempted to use it which was about 6 weeks after I bout it, it seemed to overheat because it would just shut down and stop on me. At that point I decided to upgrade the board to an Intel D945PVS, once the new board arrived I was excited but cautious, I made sure to use an anti static wristband and I installed the Board/RAM/CPU/heat sink & fan/ e-GeForce 6200 Video card and the hard drives. But almost as soon as I plugged it in I heard a siren sound coming from the board and then the computer shut off. I have attempted a few times to restart it but it continues to follow the same pattern of sounding a siren and shutting down.

I’m not sure what to do at this point, I’ve contacted Intel customer support through their website but that was no help. I know that the Desktop Boards product guide state that the Siren sound is for CPU Overheat (on reboot) but I don’t know what I can do to correct the issue. I have purchased some new thermal CPU Heat Sink compound and thoroughly cleaned the old compound away and the fan is properly positioned and operating as it appears it should.

I did notice some slight discoloration on the CPU over some of the pins (sort of like a slight darkening). Can anyone share their ideas regarding what could be the reason for this?

This type of driver from a stability and reliability standpoint is best obtained from the manufacturer of your motherboard or the manufacturer of your computer system (Dell, HP, etc) if it is OEM.

My Yoga 900 13isk 80MK came with an Intel 8260 wifi card, Lenovo Part# SW10A11647.  When I look up the part on the official Lenovo Part Lookup page, it lists Intel 01AX704 (Lenovo Part# SW10K97453) as a "Substitute" and "Equivalent" part. However, when I look up 01AX704 in Parts Lookup, my Yoga is not listed as compatible. So.....anyone have any idea whether this 8265 would work in my 900?  Here are the listed compatible models; Wireless,CMB,IN,8265 NV M2 (01AX704) is compatible with the following machines:510S-08IKL520S-14IKB710S-PLUS-13IKB710S-PLUS-TOUCH-13IKB720-18IKL720S-14IKBFLEX-5-1470-LAPTOP-LENOVOFLEX-5-1570LEGION-Y520-15IKBALEGION-Y520-15IKBMLEGION-Y520-15IKBNLEGION-Y720-15IKBM810ZMIIX-510-12IKBMIIX-720-12IKBTHINKCENTRE-M710QTHINKCENTRE-M710STHINKCENTRE-M710TTHINKCENTRE-M910QTHINKCENTRE-M910STHINKCENTRE-M910TTHINKCENTRE-M910XTHINKCENTRE-M910ZTHINKPAD-13-TYPE-20J1-20J2THINKPAD-E470THINKPAD-E570THINKPAD-L470THINKPAD-L470-TYPE-20JU-20JVTHINKPAD-L570-TYPE-20J8-20J9THINKPAD-P51S-TYPE-20HB-20HCTHINKPAD-P51-TYPE-20HH-20HJTHINKPAD-P71THINKPAD-T470THINKPAD-T470PTHINKPAD-T470STHINKPAD-T570THINKPAD-X270THINKSTATION-P320V310ZV510-14IKBV510-15IKBYOGA-520-14IKB80X8

I have a Dell XPS 15 (9550) that I received last week from Dell with a random screen flickering issue. 
It is based on evalue order code: <ADMIN NOTE: Order number removed per privacy policy>
It is the 6th Gen Core i7, 16GB RAM, 15.6" FHD 1080p display (not 4k), 512GB SSD, 84WHr Battery, Intel 530 Graphics AND NVIDIA 960M

I saw a post about the XPS 13 with the intel display flickering being fixed with the new driver... I am running driver version for the Intel 530 and my screen is still constantly flickering  on my brand new XPS 9550. 
Another Issue: I also noticed that in the Intel graphics properties config panel -> 3D -> Application Optimal Mode... this also causes issues with the start menu looking distorted and fuzzy, even making some of the white text look gray.  I disabled this to resolve that issue, but the screen still constantly flickers.
One thing I have done recently to mitigate the flickering is go into the NVIDIA driver control panel and set the NVIDIA card as the preferred graphics card, which works for most applications. As soon as the Intel card kicks back in the screen flickers... I have tried various drivers versions for this model off the Dell website without success. I am running Windows 10 Pro...  not sure if a newer driver is available and just not posted. For example the newest Laptop BIOS on the driver website ends in .3 while my pc came with .5 installed. So wasn't sure if the website was b... Read more

A:Dell XPS 15 (9550) w/ Intel 530 / NVIDIA 960M - Intel Causing Screen Flickering

Another update... I was ready to give up as others have above when I found posts on the NotebookReviews forum mentioning this new Intel Driver:  downloadcenter.intel.com/.../Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-10-15-40-6th-Gen
It won't install through the executable, but if you follow the instructions here for a manual install: www.windowscentral.com/how-install-intel-beta-graphics-drivers-surface  they do work.  Incidentally that link is regarding the exact same flickering problem on the MS Surface Book Pro(very similar hardware).  I'm 3 days in to using these drivers and it appears to have resolved the problem.  This is the longest I've gone without flickering by a long shot.
Note on the Intel download site the first of the "Key Issues Fixed"...  "Display may flicker on 6th Generation Intel Core and related processors".
I also updated to the latest WiFi drivers from Dell's site at the same time, so I can't be 100% certain my issues were fixed by just the display drivers, or if it was the combination of the two.

Hi there, has anyone got access to the Intel Management Engine Menu (Intel AMT / MBEX) from the Lenovo T470s (Model 20HF004UGE)? The usual way by pressing crtl + p during the Lenovo logo doesn't work. If you press ctrl + P there?s a short message under the Lenovo logo saying that Intel Management Configuration is started, but nothing happens and then the normal boot process continues. We have already installed the latest version of the Intel Management Engine firmware via Lenovo System Update. (Version from 2017/11/09 for Windows 10 (64-bit), 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) We also can't detect any BIOS setting where MBEX / Intel AMT is disabled. Any help is very welcome. Thank you in advance. -------------OVGU-IT  ------------------------------------------------ Hallo Zusammen, hat jemand Zugang zum Intel Management Engine Menü (Intel AMT / MBEX) vom Lenovo T470s (Model 20HF004UGE) bekommen? Der übliche Weg während des Lenovo Logos strg + p zu drücken funktioniert leider nicht. Wenn man strg + P drückt steht kurz unter dem Lenovo Logo, dass die Intel Management Configuration gestartet wird, aber es passiert nichts und dann geht der normale Bootvorgang weiter. Wir haben bereits die neuste Version der Intel Management Engine Firmware über Lenovo System Update installiert.

Has anyone seen the services:

Intel Alert Handler
Intel File Transfer

And anyone know why they are set to automatic, yet don't start? I believe they come from a Symantec Anti Virus instalation, but I still don't know why they don't and can't start (even if you try manually).

Any ideas folks?


A:Intel Alert Handler and Intel File Transfer services not starting

Some services only start when needed and no amount of coaxing will make them start at any other time

Just wondering if anyone has been having the same issue.

Windows 7 x64 series 8 motherboard. ASUS z87-expert.

My USB3 and USB2 are not working right after I install the Intel USB3 xhci Driver for Intel? 8/9 Series

I have used the setup.exe to install the driver and the mouse/keyboard stopped working after the drivers are updated and I am not able to click the "Finish" button on the GUI to complete the installation.

Luckily that I was able to remote login to the PC to click the "Finish" button. After restart, the USB ports starts to work again.

A:USB port not working Intel USB3 xhci Driver for Intel® 8/9 Series

Welcome to SevenForums,

It is a little normal that during the process of updating the drivers, it does disconnect the devices plugged onto ports, to swap drivers and write the files in order the new drivers to work. It does remap the devices.

It is always better to uninstall previous USB 3.0 drivers and use a usb 2.0 port to control temporarily another mouse to finish the process and the reboot required. Could be Intel xHci or AsMedia XHci ones...same same.

Edit: I fixed it! (I was causing the problem myself but uninstalling the chip in the first place when i should have been disabling it instead)

Ok... I looked for about an hour and decided i would have to make a new thread for my specific problem... so sorry if im making my first post in an odd place

I recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce 5500 FX PCI 256MB DDR video card
followed directions as best i could, and disabled the Intel integrated graphics... but my PC insists on REinstalling the intel integrated graphics controller upon restart... It left me alone for awhile and i could run Counter Strike : Condition Zero moderately well (low frames after playing for over an hour) but after allowing my computer to update itself (while using IE to dowload firefox for a reinstall, IE randomly decided my home page was going to be the microsoft site for the day) and since then no matter what i do the computer insists on trying to reinstall the intel integrated graphics thing...

so my question is, how do I make this stop? how do i keep the computer from giving me the dreaded "found new hardware" bubble when im using a FAR superior (REAL) video card already?

is there something i do in the BIOS (i hope not, i dont like messing around in there) or on the motherboard itself?

i have some basic info about my comp in my signature but im going to use "PolSystemInfo" to find all my PC specs and just copy paste them below, I just hope its enough info to help so... Read more

A:NVIDIA GeForce 5500 FX-vs-Intel Integrated Graphics... please make intel go away!

Hmm that didn't happen to me when I put mines in. Did you install the NVIDIA drivers? Try disabling the onboard in the device manager. That?s what I did. There doesn?t seem to be an option to turn it off in the bios (my bios) maybe there is for you however. It isn?t too complicated. Just simply look for onboard graphics or integrated graphics controller or w/e and select disable, but first try disabling it in the device manager. It should be listed under display adapters -> properties -> disable this device.

You should upgrade to DX9.0c...

Quick background-I restored my drive from image and i cannot recall what i did to make it a bit faster. i think it had to do with Chipset or IRST.

I tried to install the latest version and i get a incorrect platform error and it doesn't install

I'm using version 12.8

My specs are Win 7 pro x64, 7 Series/216 H77 chipset, I5 3rd gen, SSD SanDisk Ultra II 240g, Seagate 2tb HDD
Is this version for a different chipset or version of windows?
