MSI 970A-G46 boot issue after entering Bios

Hello i hv MSI 970A-G46 Mobo pared with AMD fx 8320 in all stock. value no OC with 4Gbx2 Gskill DDr3 1600 ram

everything is fine... But when ever i enter Bios i see cpu temp rise to 60 C and going up. but whn im on windows cpu temp is fine. stays like 20-25c

and also whn i exit the bios the system turns itself off. and wont boot at all. no matter how many time i press power button on my chesis.

untill i disconnect the poer cable from chesis and plug it in after 5 sec and press power button. system truns on. but if i press DEL to eneter bios. and exit. same thing happens system stays Off.,.

my mobo came with Bios Version v2.5 so i tried to update it to 2.6 everything was success but no luck the problem is still there.

and im on Windows 7.

If anyone knows how to solve this issue i would be more then happy,,

TIA

  1. there is a problem with you mobo bios....get in touch with msi customer support
  2. i hv option to replace it. So do u think i should replace it ?
  3. it would be a good idea to replace it

    good luck :)
  4. im planning to replace this board with ASRock 970 Extreme 4 will this board be good ? it has same cpu power phase 4+1 but tdp it 140W
  5. 970 extreme 4 would be perfectly fine....its a great board

    good luck :)
  6. but i dnt see FX 8320 CPu in their CPu compatible list for 970 extreme 4
  7. a bios update will do the trick...your 8320 is supported right from bios version 2.30, current bios is 2.60

  8. it says only Improve AM3+ FX-8350 and FX-8150 CPU compatibility.

    I do not see anywhere for FX-8320 though i think if it can support FX-8350 it can also support FX-8320. but kind of scared.

    im in tight budget or else i would hv been gone for 990fx extreme 4. but for now i wanted to know if the new 970 extreme 4 mobo are shipping with new bios. as i only have one CPu which uses AM2+ socket so i cannot update bios if its a older bios

    as for the bios 2.30, it was released way back in January this year...so expect your bios to be at least 2.40-2.50 if not 2.60
  10. Decided to go with Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 :) hope this will be a good choice
  11. excellent choice....good chipset and a much better power phase design.

    go with the rev. 3.0 though
  12. I was hoping for Rev 4.0 but i dnt know wht they hv in shop. as they do not know how to check without opening the box...

    do u think new Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 would come in new revision ?

  13. Best answer
    i am not sure more revisions will come....this board was first released way back in mid 2011 if i am not mistaken.

    i don't think gigabyte will keep this board going much longer unless amd stops releasing newer chipsets
