That was the last one I got for my motherboard because of issues with the OVP and overclocking... If you find a more recent update do you think you can find a way to flash from a USB jump drive?? Because I don't have a floppy drive, and the MSI utility can't update the bios from Vista...
Alright, time to get creative. They say to make a floppy, I am assuming your build doesn't have one, and you have no intention of buying a USB one, so here is what I would try. See Boot for possibly getting a minimal Windows Boot CD, which might allow you to read/write and execute the BIOS update program off of your hard drive (they have one for reading/writing NTFS disks) and see if that works. See here for a bios update (try redoing your current one first, might be a glitch)

If you get no where with that or Googling for other bootable CDs, I will look into doing USB, I try to stay away from it (like my clinic duty) since it can be tricky (not like clinic duty) :-)
