    Default [Solved] Fix ME Firmware corrupt on GA-H67MA-USB3-B3

    I have the Fix ME Firmware prompt on GA-H67MA-USB3-B3, how can I fix it?

    I can't even get into the OS. The board turns itself on and off randomly and only get passed POST if I'm lucky but then I will see the Fix ME.

    Flashing the F8 BIOS didn't help at all. What can I do?

    Last time I have this problem I have to bring it back to the dealer, they soldered a new BIOS for me, it was fine for a few months and now it is back again, however, my warranty has been gone for just 5 days and the dealer refuse to fix it.

    Will it help if I manually update the ME region of the F8 BIOS?

    You could try reinstalling the ME driver and/or the ME firmware.
    But I admit I've never personally seen this problem so I'm guessing.

    Re flash BIOS worked, with this step which does the trick

ME is powered with standby power line and doesn't restarts on normal reset, so you must use that command or remove power completely and wait for 30 secs to reset ME state. If they have same versions - normal reset is enough.
