Hi guys,

I recently built a custom gaming pc and it has been working great until a couple of weeks ago. I booted it up one day and a message appeared on my monitor saying, ĎBIOS is updating LED firmware - Do not shut down or reset the system to prevent system bootup failureí. Ever since that day, it keeps coming up with that message whenever I turn my pc on.

Any help is appreciated as I have to wait 1 hour each time I turn my pc on to use it.

Thank you

We need more detailed information (complete system specs) on your PC.

I don't think BIOS Updates are done Automatically, they have to be initiated by the user.. Any chance you downloaded and tried to upgrade the BIOS ?

Or there are chances that there is a USB stick with the bin file connected to the PC and it automatically picks it up.. Or a hot key combo due to a stuck key on the keyboard which triggers the Dual Bios fall back.

You might want to try to perform a CMOS reset to see if that helps you..

Sorry we can't help you at all without knowing anything about your system. Your post is like my asking you why the horn on my car only works after 3 tries? Impossible to answer so please pay attention to the answers given you before posting another thing.

Hi you said you built a gaming computer you should know what the motherboard, ram, cpu and power supply and graphic card you put in it.
