This is Gigabytes link to downloads. Did you uninstall software from MSI? Try to shut down, unplug system, and restart. You might want to consider a "system restore" back to when it did work. Did it work at all with new board?

I got an MS 7390 and lately I updated to the latest BIOS version which is 1.20. I normally use a USB keyboard but when I start up the computer it asks me to press DEL to enter setup. The problem is that...


Hello download a manual here at MSI:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K9N-SLI-V2.html#/?div=Manual

You need to unzip the file when downloaded.

I guess the bios upgrade set the usb function off
You have to enter the bios and set it on again.

Look in the manual how you do that.
You need a PDF reader to read content.

Good luck

MY msi 7082 cant read HDD 40GB and above whY>?


Your board specifications are here - http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=661FM3-L&class=mb

This sounds like a memory timing issue based on the caution from the MSI page. There is no reason the board itself should have a problem with that size hard drive. Have you reset the bios to factory default and tried the various compatibility settings available in the bios?

My windows alwyas restart & recovery bios


orangmedn

pc r restart for several reason like power supply problem, over heated, os problem. if ur pc restart when u try to access any drive or insart cd or dvd in drive means ur power supply is faulty. and if it restart after a fixed time (approximately) means over heated. (u reinstall xp so operating system is not infected.) if one of above symptom r their then no need to update bios.

2nd if some problem heppen during ur bios update and it not wirte properly and u restart ur pc in this situation the ur pc can not start and result is no display condition. if it happen then contact with any mother board repear centre or mother board service centre. (because if bios program r corrupt it need to repalce or rewite).

(**2nd time if u update any BIOS be Cautious. at first take backup then update. if any problem happen then restor with backup copy, then restart ur pc. until u sure update successfully do not restart ur pc).

Windows booting problem


hi sunnyh, when you start up the PC start pressing the F8 key every 2 seconds. A dos like window will load. At the bottom of the list choose, last known good configuration. (win might load the last good configuration) it's worth the try.
If your PC still does not load windows than repeat the above, this time choose, Disable automatic restart on system failure.
This also might allow windows to load (hopefully).
A system that starts going into this restart loop happens for many different reasons. Most common reason was a program that was last installed just before PC was restarted. Second most common reason for restart loop. Added new hardware, bios changes & windows boot files corrupted. If you did install a program, uninstall it. If you were in your bios & made changes, reset the bios. If you flashed the bios, go back to the old bios version. If you added new hardware replace with older hardware.
To fix Windows you may have to reinstall it. Do not run format or you will loose all your data. Even system restore CD's allow for a win reinstall without a format, however if the cd does not allow you to reinstall win unless you do a format. Than windows startup files are too screwed up & you'll have no choice but to format.

All you can do is try the above & cross your fingers.

Good luck!
