Hey there! Im building my first 'rig' and am using a sabertooth 990fx motherboard with fx 8120 cpu but for them to work the bios needs to be updated! Flash booting isnt possible and I dont really want to send it back to ASUS to update it as by the time ive done it I ccould ust get another CPU to update it. Heres what I was wondering;
Can I Update the BIOS via a CD in the disk drive?
Can anybody tell me the cheapest CPU I can use to update the bios?
Ok so being new ill try my best :L
- Cm scout case
-700w Coolmaster silent pro
-1600 ddr3 Ripjaw
-Sabertooth 990 fx
-FX 8120 AMD CPU With stock fan
-Basic/Standard CD/DVD RW Drive
- windows OeM 7 64 - bit
-Kingston SSD 128GB With a 1tb arriving soon (HDD)
oh and my old saphire RAdeon 1GB 5670
And no I cant get onto the bios as nothing comes up on the screen, ive read that although one of the sdelling points of the motherboard is that it works with the CPU it needs a bios update first. and it needs the CPU to get onto the bios
Hmm I was thinking I may have to, after looking at the compatible list and getting some Amazon voucher for christmas I think ill get the Sempron for £30 then either sell it on ebay or have as a spare etc. Thanks btw
