I am having a few problems with with my system and have narrowed it down to what I beleive to be the latest BIOS I downloaded for my KT3 Ultra 2 series MoBo. I have heard rumours about dodgy BIOS updates and I have to agree its little strange how they work. Their auto update software constantly informs me that there is still another bios update waiting for me to dowload? Does anyone else have this problem? I really want to find an older version of the BIOS and install that. Not had much luck with their site. Does anone know of a good resouce site for MoBo bios's?
Ooops forgot to mention "Their auto update software constantly informs me that there is still another bios update waiting for me to dowload?" Even when it shows the the update as the same bios thats installed....yes seen this one I just turned off the MSI Live Update.
I cant find anything in relation to those. I did however find something on the usa site but wondered if that would cause a problem or (because its US). I am trying to find an old version as the most up to date version seems to be killing my system with stuttering problems!
You say you have an MSI KT3 MoBo it will also have a number eg ms-6172 if you dont know it try Belarc click here. Have you tried checking the settings in the bios since updating the bios..... eg is the processor still at the correct speed (Have a look in control Panel/System) in the bios check dma is enabled and thet the AGP settings have not been set back to default.
I have checked most of the settings but m not sure of what the AGP settings should be (I never had to play with them before) I ma using a PNY GEFORCE 4 (mx440) 64MB graphics card. Not sure how fast or whatever AGP settings are optimal?
