MSI B250M Gaming PRO Freeze

So recently I have changed my motherboard and my CPU and I was trying to change some settings in the BIOS, but when I get Into the Advanced settings page my bios freezes and I can´t do anything.


Thing I´ve tried:
-Update BIOS
-Downgrade the BIOS

When I flash my bios windows doesen´t boot and I have to enter in secure mode and a hard disk verification via CMD, my question is is there any way to fix my BIOS ? Sorry for my bad English

PC Specs:
CPU: I5 7600k
GPU: Sapphire RX 470 4GB
RAM: Kingston DDR4 2133mhz
MB:MSI B250M Gaming Pro

    I will try what smorizio has said tomorrow, but I have another question, can this issue affect games performance? I mean because before the I5 7600k I had an I3 7100 and the performance is not that noticeable.

    I've updated and downgraded to all of its versions nothing happened
  15. so weird, but I believe it could be the mb again... Do any of your friends use the same chipset?

    Yes one friend does he has an I5 6400 what can I do
  17. 1. borrow his motherboard
    2. lend him your motherboard and see if issues persist on his side as well.

    I don't think he's gonna let me hes like afraid of taking things out of the pc box, is there any other option I'm pretty sure he's not gonna let me do it
  19. do you have pc shops nearby? How do you get the new mb, BTW?

    If this helps a friend of mine told me that it could be the ram, but I searched the compatibility page and it's there as compatible so I dont know, and another thing might help it's that when I had the APU A10 7850K when inserting the dedicated graphics card the bios doesn't boot so maybe it could be that
  21. vapour said:

    I do have shops nearby but the mb I get it via internet in a Spanish shop "I'm from Spain" it's trustable so don't worry about that
  22. OK, then run memtest86.com full loop for 2 hours to see if ram is defective.

    So I need to RMA it again?
  27. Bios setting is not relevant to storage or gpu, ram seems to check out. Do a intel processor test before RMA your mb.

    I´m gonna try a las thing, I´ll try to enter the BIOS with the integrated graphics via VGA if nothing changes I´ll send it and tell them to send me another type of mobo
  36. Did you solved your problem? because i think i have the same situation. My pc freezes and need to force turn off and the it enters in boot loop. I've tested with another RAM for a couple of hours and it worked fine.

    PC Specs:
    CPU: I5-7400
    GPU: ASUS GTX 1050TI
    RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 2400mhz
    MB:MSI B250M PRO-VDH
  37. I was thinking of buying this exact mobo. Now after reading this thread I'm not so sure.
