Question MSI b450I no boot screen

Mar 12, 2023
Hi everyone

So I posted last week re my rig and if it was ok to power games via meta 2.( As elite dangerous was glitching )
So I updated the bios to latest one as per here
That seemed to go ok however the bios interface had changed to a less nicer version ( not sure why, from the red one on the manuals to a blue / grey less sexy one ).
I then changed the ram settingsto the correct ram speed, and I also tried one of the presets in the xmp . Loaded ok then after a new reset, there's no display. I've tried with the GPU hdmi the pc hdmi nothing . Opened up the rig and the sdram led light is solid .
Tried reset CMOS still same issue .

When it turns on, it's sounds normal like wall the fans kick in, then some of the fans stop ( I think it's the gpu fans ) power lights on but nothing happening .

I've even in a last ditch attempt , to do a usb windows install but can't get anything to appear on monitor .

Anyone any ideas ?

Spec is here but this was done before the latest bios update I did

The motherboard you have linked above is not the same motherboard you have listed in your system specs. The link you have provided is for the B450 Gaming Plus and the one you have listed in your specs is the B450I Gaming plus AC. They have different BIOS.

I thought I had installed the right bios as even on the MSI website for my registered b450I the link for drivers doesn't work so did a search as could only see "AC"and "Max" versions? Do u have the link for the correct bios?

In the mean time should I try and reset CMOS again ?

Hey there

Its Def b450i as it's the mini itx board but don't have box anymore .

So annoyed . MSI have not made it easy to find the correct bios. Even when I log into my MSI account and have registered my board on their when you click software and drivers the link is broken ?
