   I have an MSI Gaming 7 Z97A gaming motherboard. It has worked fine and I have made no changes to it in the last few months and then suddenly it all quit working and both BIOS give me black screen and will not work. The board LEDs light up and the fans run but that is it. Is there any way to recover the BIOS? The screen is black and I have no way to enter the BIOS.

Shutdown your system and remove all RAM sticks.

 

Start it up and you system should produce error beeps.

 

If no beeps, most likely your motherboard is spoiled ...

Do you get the system beep when you first boot?

If "yes", have you checked the monitor/cable connection?

I have RMAd it. I think I will buy ASUS next time they seem have to have better BIOS recovery options. Maybe I will be buying ASUS if MSI doesnt fix it I will have to  wait and see.
