Need PC help
Netherlands OfficialSEANY 
I just finished my pc. it runs but my screen says 'dvi no signal' for that, I might need to update my BIOS because I'm using a 5000 series chip. When I perform a BIOS update with Flash BIOS Button will I need to take my cpu out? I rather not because I don't have the materials to clean it and it is another chance to dmg my cpu... I only want to do it if it is really needed because it can dmg the cpu it self, stuff like that. Any tips? Help is appreciated.

dvi? That's an suspiciously old standard, with lot of variations. Anyway, where have you plugged in your monitor to? What gpu is it to have a dvi?

I see. Bios flash button requires no cpu, only power plugged in. Let me pull my notes: Steps: 1.Rename bios filename to MSI.ROM 2.Put into FAT32 USB drive 3.Plug in power to motherboard 4.check bios button usb port in mobo manual 5.plug in the usb bios flash button and wait for 5 secs > ligth will start flashing to indicate that it starts updating >8.~5 mins waiting for bios finish updating > light will stop flashing to indicate updating process is finished 10.profit *There's a lot of people on /r/MSI_Gaming reporting that they've done this without any issues. The trick seems to be using a USB 2.0 stick that is 16GB or less, formated as FAT32. Also, the stick must be completely void of any files, except the ROM file.

Thank you, I see that the CPU is not required but is it bad if I would leave it in it? since it is already in with everything connected.

Doesn't make sense to me that they'd design a convenience feature like this, yet make it break if anything else than psu is plugged in.

I get that, I can only find things like 'bios update without cpu required' but nothing about if it has consequences if it is already in it.

So it is doing it right now, everything is also spinning which I did not expect I thought only the motherboard would do something and the rest be idle. Lets hope this works!

ive had the same issue with an MSI MPG B550 Gaming Plus and an Ryzen 5800X, i left the CPU in since im using a quite big Cooler that i didn´t want to uninstall and it all worked just fine. in my case i didnt have to rename the file to msi.rom but into something else i can´t remember tn. i can look it up if you want but my point is that you have to find out what file your motherboard is searching for and if you maybe renamed the update file wrong. different mainboards need diffently named update files. maybe that helps, because otherwise i couldnt explain your problem aswell edit: if you still have problems then you can dm me, than i can have a further look into it

so did the system update? there should be a little light under the flash bios usb plus that indicates when the motherboard is updating/using the usb drive. did that flash? my update took around 5 minutes

yes it did, it flashed for about 7-8 min and then the light went off and then the pc kept running but nothing was happening so I restarted after like another 10 min but still nothing. same thing, no DVI or HDMI signal. I tried both cables. lights on ram work, lights on video card work, so all should work right in theory.

okay seems like you did everything right so far so then its maybe a problem with the graphics card. try to plug the display cables into the motherboard to at least maybe get to the bios. if you dont get signal on those ports aswell, try to plug the power cable out of the graphics cards and maybe completely disconnect it from the motherboard, so the pc has to use the motherbaord ports. hopefully you then get at least to the bios, from where we can then move on

NICE! what was the problem? :D edit: is the graphics card connected? or do you have picture via motherboard?

Graphic card is connected, maybe it had to do something with ram but maybe also some luck because it worked on the second time I did the Flash Bios Button thing because someone else here said it worked on my second time and not the first time.

yeah rbg can either be configured via the bios or via an app in windows, just google what is the case for your motherboard :) im happy for you its working now

If you're trying to update your BIOS to accommodate a newer type of CPU, then you will need to get hold of an older CPU (a CPU that your current BIOS supports) to even be able to get into the BIOS/to perform a BIOS update. Only after then, can you use your new CPU. There's nothing wrong with dual-link DVI. If you have a 120+hz monitor, you need dual-link DVI. The older style of DVI will not work for you. What is the make and model of your motherboard? And what is the make and model of the CPU you are trying to use?

Motherboard: MPG x570 gaming edge Wifi CPU: AMD 5600X Bios with flash bios button make is so I don't need an older cpu. I got a 144hz monitor that worked with that cable on my old pc though.

Looks like the technology has really come along with this, you are right that you do not need to have a working CPU at all to be able to flash the bios by using the flash bios button, you just need to prep a USB drive and download the BIOS file from the MSI website. The website says you can do it with no CPU installed, but doesn't say that having a CPU already installed would cause any issues. I don't see how flashing or attemping to flash a BIOS would be able to cause an issues for you.

no you don't need to take out the CPU or get an old CPU. Just follow the BIOS flashback procedure from the manual. (I've done this on an ASRock X570 Taichi + 5800X, although I had to flash it a second time before it took)

How come it did not work the first time? before you did it, did you also have 0 connection with the screen that the screen was saying no DVI, HDMI signal (whatever you are using as input)?
