Just bought a new MSI K9N Neo MB...while booting up I get the message "Unknown Processor Revision" and have to press F1 to continue booting. I've read online to fix this you update the bios...but I'm having a hell of a time figure out what version BIOS I have and where to download the new one, then how to 'flash' the bios! Thanks for any help!

If you have never flash bios, then get a pro do that for you. Normally, you check MSI website on your motherboard model, and search in support/download/ drivers. If any latest driver or bios version there (check date), then that is one you need.

I notice the BIOS link is grayed out, perhaps there isn't a new bios for this MB yet?

If you bought them as combo cpu + motherboard, you might consider to return them all and get exchange.

Yes, send it back. New system should give you enjoyable, but sounds like it did not.
