Hi,

I've bought a Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac to use with a i5 9400F CPU.

The board does not boot, and after a while gives 5 beeps. After some searches I have found that the BIOS version is 1.10 and the support for the i5 9440F is only with version 3.30.

Is there a way to update the BIOS without a CPU or bypassing the boot problem?

Dear Keyser,

Thank you for posting your query to ASRock forum.

Kindly check with the store where the motherboard was purchased from to update the BIOS for you.

Also, kindly be noted that 9400F CPU does not have an integrated graphics card, a discrete graphics card is required.

With thanks,
ASRock TSD

Hi,

Thank you for your answer.

Since the motherboard has an integrated graphics card, is there really a need for another GCard for the CPU to function?

Can you kindly explain.

Regards

Dear Keyser,

Thanks for the reply.

The motherboard has integrated ports that will provide signals to the monitors.

The integrated ports such as HDMI gains the signals from the processor graphics.

If the processor does not have integrated graphics, onboard ports will not have functions.
Thus, a discrete graphics card is required.

If the extra graphics card is not preferred, kindly use the CPU such as i5-9400 that has integrated graphics on the system.

With thanks,
