I have a K9A2 Platinum board. I tried the method one for AMI bios. I got two green from the program but after I flash my bios and restarted my machine the board became dead. The monitor is shows nothing but I can hear my processor fan going. The lights on my ram flashes. I don't hear any beeps. I notice I have JSPI1 port where I can flash the bois that way. Is there any equipment I can get to flash it through JSPI1 that way i don't have to RMA. Or is it better to call MSI and RMA the mobo. Mobo: MSI K9A2 Platinum V1.0 CPU: Athlon 5000+ Blackbox edition RAM: Crucial 2x1GB of PC2 8500 in dual channel x2 = 4GB total Video card: Radeon HD3870 x2 in crossfire UPS: Silencer 750 BIOS: F71882FG chip using AMI... I have tried clearing the CMOS it doesn't work. I have try with a PCI video card that didn't work. I have try with just 2GB by itself that didn't work. So my conclusion is that the mobo cmos is dead.
