i just made a new computer build
and its processor was i5 3470(ivy bridge)
and the motherboard was an MSI H61MU-E35(b3)
so my problem was i can't even access BIOS on my monitor
because my motherboard probably doesn't support the processor...

can someone tell me how to update/flash bios of MSI motherboard without
monitor turned on???
also is it safe to flash bios without taking off the processor???

Just kidding, I lied.

okay, you can do it one of two ways:

Put it on a flash drive that you format to fat32

or

Use the bios flash utility that comes on the motehrboard CD

@austing
i think your message was cut or something at the first part...
and on those 2 ways the only way i can use was the first which was using flash drive...
and how will i do it...
i mean i can't even see anything on the monitor cause
of processor was not supported....
and which one of these will i use to flash
7680vC0.zip - this one which was labeled for my processor(i5 3470)
link is here - http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H61MU-E35--B3-.html#?div=...
or
7680vC2.zip - this one which was the latest version
link is here -http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H61MU-E35--B3-.html#/?div...



SO OK...
nevermind everything above....
i now know the answer to my question(got from msi's forum)
anyways thanks for the reply.. but it don't seem to be a nice answer...
anyways for those who are curious...
this MSI motherboard cannot update bios without on screen help(i mean you need to at least access the monitor) unlike the asus and some other brands in which you will just gonna put the USB and long press some button then its OK...

Install a video card, either a PCI-E type or even a PCI type.

To enter boot block mode hold down the control key along with either the home, page_up, page_down, or end key while turning on the computer.

I do not like updating MSI BIOSes.

BIOS updates are not cumulative. They do a complete replacement of everything in your BIOS with the new version. So you can jump straight from anything to F9 in one go. But as I have tried my self, best way to update a Gigabyte motherboard Bios is to use Q-Flash if your motherboard has it. I was warned by Gigabyte Tech Support and IT support Los Angeles against it.
