  1. Why would I not be able to use the K95 Platinum XT? I have searched around seeing if there is a solution to get it working and I can't seem to find anything, I've tried the F1 and Windows Lock Key, and the S and B combinations, to enter a "BIOS Mode" with no success. Though why the hell should I need to enter a BIOS mode to use a keyboard for it's most basic function in BIOS? Even when I get into the BIOS using another keyboard, it still never detects, even though the USB passthrough works perfectly fine for my mouse. I have the keyboard plugged directly into my Motherboard and have tried both 2.0 and 3.0 ports, even making sure only the Keyboard USB is the only part plugged in. All with no success in entering BIOS with the Keyboard. I have the latest firmware version 4.22.30 installed. I have an older K95 Platinum that works perfectly fine to enter BIOS and BIOS options but, would rather not have to use it as it is old and falling apart at this point. I do not see why a $200 dollar keyboard can't even do the most basic functions of being a keyboard? I happen to go into BIOS often to make changes to RAM Overclocking and booting into other OS'. It just doesn't make sense as to why it would not work or require a BIOS mode in order to use a basic standard that has been in use for at least 20 years and was available on their older Keyboards. I have also sent a corsair support request and am waiting for a reply on that. I figured I would try getting troubleshooting support in the Corsair forums as well to see if anyone else has found a fix for this. Very sorry for any rant, just frustrated.
  2. My system shipped with BIOS version 2.CO and the driver page (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Systems/CORSAIR-VENGEANCE-i7200-Series-Gaming-PC/p/CS-9050001-NA#tab-downloads) now shows that version 2.CP is available. However, I don't see release notes for the new version. Are those available elsewhere?
  3. Hi everyone, I recently got a K95 RGB Platinum brown and have one problem that I haven't been able to solve. I understand that I need to switch the keyboard into BIOS mode, if I want to enter the BIOS and - while in Windows 10 - I have been successful at switching in and out of BIOS mode using the F1+Lock key combination. I am using full system disk encryption with VeraCrypt, so at bootup I have to enter a password to boot into Windows. However at that password prompt that F1+Lock key combination doesn't work, so if the K95 isn't already in BIOS mode (e.g. because I've forgotten to turn that on before shutting down or rebooting), I need a 2nd keyboard to enter the password, which is a major nuisance. So is there a way to turn on BIOS mode on the K95 RGB Platinum at boot time, before Windows has fully booted up?
  4. Hello guys! I'm trying to get some help regarding a RAM kit I bought, and I'm hoping someone here could help me! I used to have 16GB (2x8GB) of RAM @ 2400MHz running in my PC (from some other generic brand) pretty much since I bought it, but just recently I got 2x16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200MHz, and I was hoping to ble able to overclock it to 3200MHz so I could better use its full potential. When I go into the BIOS and try to change the XMP profile (which was currently disabled) to the dropdown item "Profile1", it apparently changes the speed to 3200MHz, however when I go Save&Exit and the computer starts to boot up again, it never does. The monitor just sits on a black screen. Sometimes it is able to show something onscreen, but then it just freezes or simply stop responding. When I hold the power button to force it shut down and change back to the older RAM, it starts working fine again, not even having to remove the CMOS battery, as I've read in other forums as being a method for trying to restore the computer back to normal. I've also read that maybe the voltage should be altered, or even that some numbers had to be typed in manually, but since this is my first time trying to overclock my computer, I'm trying to go cautioulsy so I don't end up making any serious mistake. So, any thoughts on how I could do this? I was really hoping to be able to use this RAM at 3200MHz, and with my current knowledge, I'm unable to do it alone hahahaha So if anyone could help me, I would really appreciate it! :): I'm going to list some other specs here that maybe could be useful: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700x 3.7GHz MB: Gigabyte AX370 Gaming RAM (New): 2x16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200MHZ - CMW32GX4M2C3200C16 Power supply: EVGA Supernova NEX750B NVidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB BIOS F23d 64bit Operating System Thanks in advance guys! :greengrin And Happy Holidays! :headbang:
  5. Hi, I've been having issues trying to get my RAM to the 3200 Mhz speed or at least close to it. I have the XMP profile enabled in bios and shows it's at 3200Mhz but when I get into the actual computer it shows it running at 2133mhz. I've tried manually changing the timings and that didn't work and I had to clear my cmos in order to boot again. I do have the RAM in the correct DIMM slots as recommended by the mobo manufacturer. Any ideas? mobo: Aorus Pro B550M GPU: XFX Rx 580 Ram: (2x) 8gb Vengeance Pro RBG CMW16GX4M2C3200C16W
  6. I am in dire need of a BIOS downgrade for my 2017 Corsair One™ Pro (CS-9000011-NA). I'm looking for an early version of the BIOS, one that will allow me to manually set the PEG0 - Max Link Speed back to Gen1. I think I was running either version 4.QF or 4.QQ, and that was the last time my system was running consistently well. I understand there have been major security updates in the meantime, but what's the point of security if my $2300 USD computer is not working in the first place? Here's what happened: A week ago, I (finally) decided to do a BIOS update. I have been running the original factory BIOS version since originally receiving it back in 2017. First BIOS update I tried was version E7A66IZ1.4C1 (aka "the Spectre/Meltdown BIOS Update"), and then a few frustrating days later I installed and flashed the current version, 4C3. For the record, I followed all instructions as provided on your forum sticky, and reset the CMOS after each successful update. (Understand that I've been building and fixing PCs since the '486 days, so this isn't my first rodeo. :biggrin: ) Ever since applying the last two BIOS versions, where you invisibly locked the graphic card at Gen2, I've been unable to successfully boot my Pro into Windows without it locking up 4 times out of 5. (At this rate, I fear that I will have to replace the power button.) I'm at my wit's end by this point, since there seems to be no combination of BIOS setting or Windows re-install that will bring me back to stability. If anything, I'd like to just take my system back to its original configuration and pretend none of this ever happened. Note: My Pro is running a clean install off a Windows 10 202H ISO straight from microsoft.com. I've been through a myriad of BIOS settings, starting with the default optimized settings, and I'm still unable to attain the stability I had before the BIOS update. Cold starting the computer will usually result in a lock-up before the OS is even booted, sometimes a spontaneous restart happens where the Pro powers off and then back on, and even if the Windows login screen does appear, it will usually lock up before I can finish punching in my 4 digit PIN number. I recognize this behavior from a few years ago, before I found the Max Link Speed setting in my BIOS and switched it to Gen1. System ran fine afterwards, booted into Windows every time I switched it on. I know I'm late to the game on getting the PCI-e ribbon replaced (>1 year past warranty), and I'm sure there's a cost to video performance by throttling down to Gen1, but I NEED a working computer now, not an aluminum $2300 desktop conversation piece and angry clients wondering why I'm not meeting their deadline. Thanks.
  7. Hola, soy nuevo en la comunidad y no he visto sección de placas base en el foro, así que pido disculpas por adelantado si no estoy haciendo la pregunta en lugar adecuado. LA priemra vez que encendi el ordenador, si entre en la configuracion de la placa (No vi donde dar preferencia a USB Boot para inst W10), pero finalice. Ahora estoy en bucle, porque me dice que de a F2 o Del para entra en config BIOS, pero no me responde y continua hasta identificar los componentes de hardware y salirme siempre un error diciendo que tengo la caja abierta " Open Case" y que le de a CRT + Shif + SUP para continuar. Lo hago y vuelta empezar. Estoy en bucle y sin poder hacer nada ahora ¿Me podrian ayudar al respecto? Gracias.
  8. Hi, I don't know if this has been posted before or if there is already an answer. So I have a i7 6700K, with the Corsair H80i v2 liquid cooler. I upgraded my motherboard to a MSI z270 gaming M7 (from a MSI z170 gaming m3) very recently and since then my Corsair Link always reads that the H80i v2 fan's sit at 0 rpm. I have read a lot of different websites and many posts suggesting fixing this in the BIOS. Since I know next to nothing about any BIOS, this is quite difficult. As well as my BIOS does have a clear "Disable fan" option. I am using MSI click BIOS 5. Can anyone help me, give me a run down on what I should be doing to fix this? Thank you.
  9. Hey folks, over the last week I assembled my new Gaming-PC and resolved most of the errors that came with it. However, there's one issue I just can't resolve despite trying to troubleshoot it: My Issue I can't access the UEFI-BIOS of my ASUS ROG Strix 570-E Gaming with the Corsair Strafe RGB (First Edition). Pressing DELETE or F2 does nothing when my PC starts. The Keyboard seems to be going into the BIOS-Mode automatically: The Scroll Lock LED blinks when my PC starts and stops as soon as I see my Windows-Desktop. What I've tried already I've switched the USB Configuration of my Motherboard to Legacy but that didn't help. Switching from BIOS into normal mode on the Keyboard while booting doesn't help either and lastly, connecting the Keyboard via USB2.0 using a connector in my PC-Case wasn't working as well. Only the Keyboard is currently plugged into the back of my Motherboard to make sure that the USB-Passthrough isn't interfering in any way. Using an old Logitech-Keyboard with no additional features works fine on both the USB Ports of my case and the ones at the back of my Motherboard. Installed Software/Firmware-Versions My Strafe has Firmware version 3.08 installed, along with iCUE version 3.27.68. My Motherboard also has the latest version of its UEFI-BIOS installed from the ASUS Website: Version 1407 Additional Information Another issue that may be connected to this is that I'm not able to save a profile to the memory of my Strafe RGB after soft-resetting it while trying to fix the issue above. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! UPDATE 1 - I've seen that other people around here have the same problem of not being able to save profiles to their Keyboard. I resolved this issue by rolling back to iCUE version 3.25.60. Now I can save profiles on my Keyboard again, but I still can't get into my BIOS. The Keyboard persists to go into the BIOS-Mode during POST. UPDATE 2 - Borrowed a Corsair K70 (First Edition) from a friend and that one worked immediately. I've tested every position of the BIOS-Switch and with every one of them I got into my BIOS without any hassle. Afterwards I thought that perhaps my Strafe RGB is faulty, so I borrowed another Strafe RGB (also First Edition or MK1) and it showed the same behaviour as mine does: PC starts, goes into POST → BIOS-Mode gets enabled by the Keyboard → Pressing DEL or F2 to get into BIOS doesn't work.
  10. I want to modify boot order on Dell desktop, but K95 doesn't send F2 or F12 to access BIOS on boot. I've tried different USB ports, front and back, without effect. Do I need to dig out a stock keyboard to do this? I'm wanting to make sure CD is first in boot order should I need to use a Windows rescue disc at some point.
  11. Hey, i recently bought some SP120 RGB fans ( with the fan hub), they light up and i can control the lights via the ICue software, but none of them are spinning? Plugged the SATA cable from the fan hub into the sata on my PSU, made sure the fans are properly plugged in, read online i might need to go into the BIOS to change from PMW to DC, but i have no DC option from what i can see, all i have is auto, voltage, and PMW (unless i'm in the wrong place), i have a gigabyte motherboard, (according to PCPartPicker they are compatible I know i shouldn't rely on that but i had nothing else to go off :p ), could anyone help?
  12. I have recently built a computer and got the whole pc running without any problems. I was able to install windows on the mp500. The drive itself was working properly no issues that I could see. After getting all the programs I needed on it I went ahead and turned off the pc to install a mass storage hdd. The hdd didnt show up in windows so i decided to restart the pc once more. After that second restart windows would not start from the mp500. I disconnect any storage other than the mp500 and still could not get it to boot to windows. The drive is also not showing up in the bios. The windows repair tool says there is not readable drive. My ssd is not being read and I would like some assistance on the matter if possible. Thank you in advance for any assistance you may give me. Not my pc its a pc I built for a friend so I will leave the specs down here: MOBO: Gigabyte Z270P-D3 CPU: Intel Core i5 7500 GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GAMING (Single Fan) OS BOOT DRIVE: Corsair Force MP500 Storage: Seagate 2TB BarraCuda SATA RAM: 8GB Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400 MHz (2 are in the system) I lent her an extra RAM stick that is the same exact model I bought the same time she bought hers. PSU: Thermaltake Smart 600W 80+ White OS: Windows 10 Home Thanks again for any help ^_^

  15. We understand that customers are concerned about not receiving or having access to proper BIOS updates or features for their CORSAIR branded PCs, and that messaging around this may have been confusing. This post is to clarify our plans for BIOS updates for CORSAIR branded PCs. We are currently planning on providing security or stability related BIOS updates on an as-needed basis. If there’s sufficient demand for it, we’ll explore adding QuickSync support to Z370-based CORSAIR ONE systems. For the first generation, Z270-based CORSAIR ONE systems, we are not planning on releasing any further BIOS updates unless there are critical security or stability issues that need to be addressed.
  16. Hi everyone, I upgraded my K95 RGB Platinums firmware to 3.21.7168 lately and now it's taking 5 seconds for switching into/from BIOS mode (Win-Lock + F1). Before it was 1 second - and since I have to switch the mode (on and off) every time at reboot/power on (FDE password) this isn't really comfortable... => Is there a way to downgrade the firmware and where do I find them? Thank you, surject.
  17. Voilà je possède un clavier k70 rapidfire que j’utilise pour jouer sur ps4, et pour cela je dois activer le mode bios, mais une fois activer l’eclairage devient automatiquement rouge. J’aimerais savoir si c’est possible de configurer un autre retroelcairage que rouge en mode bios ou pas ? Sachant que sur le logiciel iCue le clavier n’est pas reconnue en mode Bios. Merci d’avance pour vos réponse ! Ruben.
  18. - Keyboard LEDs light up at power on - keys don't work though in POST (BIOS, System Password etc.) - USB Legacy is activated - Different USB Ports (2.0 and 3.0) tested - Usual Dell USB keyboard works without problems (!!) - BIOS Switch not existing on this keyboard anymore - Polling Rate lowered to 8ms didn't help - Keyboard Firmware and BIOS up to date. Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Deluxe. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
  19. Hi, three days ago i bought a H150i Pro, it is correct connected to the mainboard and the power adapter. I think the pump is working, but the fans stand still. They do nothing. I can´t find them in the Bios. I can´t find them in iCUE. The cpu cooler shines through white. I have the Asus WS x299 SAGE motherboard, without a usb header. So i just try to connect it with conventional micro usb to the frontusb of my case. But Windows can´t do anything with this... Is there a possibility to fix that problem? Should i complain? Thank you for your quick reply, Ludwig Stengel
  20. This is only for Bulldog systems that are equipped with Z270 motherboards. Version E7A66IZ1.1QA includes micro-code updates 0x84 and 0xC2 to address the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities. Installation instructions: Download E7A66IZ1.1QA here. Unzip downloaded file and copy-paste the file to the root of a USB drive. Reboot to BIOS with USB drive plugged into Bulldog system. Select M-Flash. Select BIOS update file from USB drive and follow the prompts to completion.
  21. Hi There, There have been numerous updates to the Z270i BIOS by MSI, including critical security patches. When can we expect to see an updated BIOS for the Bulldog? Thanks
  22. Hello. Want to start by saying thanks in advance for some answers! My Corsair One experience has been very good so far. Anyway, Original Corsair One Pro CS-9000007-NA owner here. 1. Is there a way to update the BIOS? Scanning via the stock Corsair One Utility/Live Update 6 app yields a "You have the current BIOS/Motherboard version. No need to update" or something similar, response. Motherboard: Z270I (MS-7A66) Current BIOS: 4.QF (dated 2/3/2017) Any way to get the current BIOS for the MSI Z270I board? If so, is it safe to go through the broad MSI Live Update app - or should one download and flash it? 2. Is it alright to update/continue updating Intel drivers like WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. to the newest versions?
  23. Muy buenas. Tengo un teclado Corsair RGB MX Silent. Con el sistema arrancado funciona bien (algún que otro bug con la iluminación, pero sucede poco y no viene al caso). El problema llega cuando quiero arrancar la BIOS del sistema. Al encender el ordenador, el teclado arranca con las teclas en color rojo y blanco. Cuando pulso DEL para entrar en la BIOS, o F12 para arrancar la configuración de arranque, o cualquier cosa previa al arranque del sistema operativo, el teclado no funciona. Si conecto cualquier otro teclado antiguo, ya sea por USB o por PS2, no hay problema, pero con el Corsair es imposible. He enchufado el teclado tanto a puertos USB 2.0 como USB 3.0; incluso he conectado uno de los dos enchufes a un 2.0 y el otro a un 3.0; pero nada. También he probado con un solo enchufe USB (pues uno de los dos parece que solamente sirve como apoyo, o para dar corriente al USB integrado en el teclado). Ahora viene lo más curioso. Cuando compré el teclado hace un mes me sucedió esto que comento. Después de hacer mil pruebas (puse el teclado en modo BIOS, se me quedó colgado, casi lo jodo para siempre... en fin, ¡un tema!) al final, en una de esas, ¡FUNCIONÓ! Logré entrar en la BIOS. Apagué y volví a encender el PC unas cuantas veces y ya pude entrar siempre en la BIOS sin problema... no sé exactamente qué pasaría, pero se solucionó. Pues bien, hoy, un mes después, he vuelto a intentar entrar en la BIOS y de nuevo se ha jodido el asunto. No hay manera de entrar. Tengo que coger de nuevo un teclado antiguo para poder configurar la BIOS. Comento que en la BIOS he probado a activar y desactivar el USB Legacy Support, y que mi placa base tiene la BIOS actualizada a la última versión. Se trata de una Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87, con la BIOS F4 (la más reciente que hay en la web). La utilidad de Corsair también indica que el firmware del teclado es el más actual: 2.05. ¿Alguna solución? Muchas gracias
  24. Hello, I've had the K70 Rapidfire since some days now, and when I plugged it in for the first time, I noticed the media keys and windows lock key weren't working, but I didn't pay attention to it, I thought it was because I hadn't installed the drivers. I Then installed the CUE as the booklet told me so and when I opened it, I could only select demos of K90 keyboards and mice, I didn't have the option to do anything to my keyboard. On top of this, multimedia key and windows lock key issues persisted, and when I read something about my keyboard probably being in BIOS mode, I checked it and it was, I then changed the mode to the complete opposite side and my keyboard shut down, it doesn't work when in any other space than BIOS and I can't find anything online, please help and thanks for your time in advance!
