I got this bad checksum error with a new MSI 770-C45 on Sept 30th, bios suggested me to flash bios using M-Flash, did that and the bios died. Sent in back for RMA OCT 1st, got it back last Monday, installed the board tonight and bios version was 1.3 since I am using a Phenom II X2 545 and MSI website said it need bios 1.4 so I flashed it and after the message system will reboot in 5 seonds...and it did shut down and that's it....I tried to turn it back on, it doesn't beep, no boot up, just fan turning on.

What luck...what to do now...rma again or get another board...I am looking at Asus M4A77TD Pro since it is in stock and I can get it 1st thing in the morning or wait another month for the RMA?

BTW, MSI didn't send me back a new board but my old board with a new bios chip, I can tell from the soldering work.

No Dual BIOS or BIOS reloaded Feature on that MB?
Clear CMOS and try again.

I know one of the most Important things to do when flashing a BIOS (at least for Giga) is once the flash is done, get into BIOS and Load Failsafe Defaults.
Let it boot.
Then restart and custom set your BIOS config however you prefer it.

Did clear cmos...I actually unplugged the power supply and set jumper to clear cmos for half an hour and still no go....just fan...no screen.....tried a debug card and the error code is 00, manual didn't say what that means for Award bios...so I suspect the bios died again.

Well if a brand new Seasonic and Antec 300 fail or all the fans turned on including the cpu fan and it is the power button, I have nothing to say.

This is it, I am going to get a Gigabyte or Asus tomorrow and forget about this MSI, I had enough of it.
