Question: The "Record & Stream" menu does not appear in the AMD Radeon software. How can I fix it?(6/30/2023) Answer: Please follow the steps below to disable the iGPU.
This problem happens when using an AM4 motherboard and APU (CPU with integrated graphics), if you also have an AMD discrete graphics card and the Compatibility Support Module (CSM) is disabled in BIOS.
1. Go to BIOS\Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options\GFX Configuration and set iGPU Configuration to "Disabled”.
2. Press hotkey "F10” to save settings and exit the BIOS setup.
3. Boot into the OS and check if the "Record & Stream" menu appears in the AMD Radeon software.
Question: Why can I not find a CSM option under the Boot tab in BIOS?(10/13/2022) Answer: When you set Fast Boot to Ultra Fast under the boot tab in BIOS, CSM (Compatibility Support Module) will be disabled and hidden automatically. This is because Ultra Fast Boot is supported only when booting in full UEFI mode, so without enabling CSM.
Question: Why can my game not start with my Intel 600 series motherboard?(11/2/2021) Answer: Some games use DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection. Please check for available updates for your game, where the DRM solution supports Alder Lake CPUs.
If the game development is discontinued and there is no update available for the DRM, please follow below steps to enable the "Legacy Game Compatibility Mode”.
Press [Del] or [F2] during the POST stage to boot into BIOS.
Press [F6] to enter "Advanced” mode and go to Advanced\CPU Configuration
Enable the "Legacy Game Compatibility Mode” in BIOS.
(The option is at the bottom of the CPU Configuration page)
Press [F10] to save the setting and restart the system.
The [Scroll Lock] key on your keyboard is now a hotkey. It can be used to enable/disable the Intel E-core parking feature. Before starting a game outdated DRM protection, please press [Scroll Lock] within the OS to enable Intel E-core parking.
The C.A.M. (Clever Access Memory) option is supported when integrated graphics are disabled.
By default integrated graphics will be disabled when a PCIe graphics card is detected.
Please make sure the monitor is connected to the graphic card.
Please go to BIOS\Advanced\Chipset Configuration and enable "C.A.M. (Clever Access Memory)”.
Press F10 to save the setting and restart.
Question: I want to turn off the LED while the system is off. Where can I find the setting?(7/1/2021) Answer: Please follow the steps below and set the "Turn on Onboard LED in S5” setting to disabled under the BIOS.
While the system is starting, press hotkey "F2” or "Del” repeatedly to enter BIOS setup.
Disable the "Turn On Onboard LED in S5” under the BIOS.
AMD platform: Advanced\Onboard Devices Configuration\Turn On Onboard LED in S5\Disabled
Intel platform: Advanced\Chipset Configuraiton\Turn on Onboard LED in S5\Disabled
Question: How do the BIOS recovery and secure Backup UEFI functions work on the Intel H170 motherboards with two BIOS ROM chips?(6/1/2018) Answer: For Intel H170 motherboards with two BIOS ROM chips, if main BIOS (BIOS_A1) is corrupted please follow the steps below to have main BIOS recovered.
Step 1. Please unplug the power cable and move the jumper cap to short pin2 and pin3 on the "BIOS_SEL1” header.
Step 2. Please plug the power cable and boot into BIOS(BIOS_B1).
Step 3. Click Secure Backup UEFI (B->A). This will copy the backup BIOS file to the main BIOS file.
Step 4. After updating BIOS, kindly remove the power cable and move the jumper cap to short pin1 and pin2 (header BIOS_SEL1)
Step 5. Plug the power cable and the system should be boot up with main BIOS file
Question: How do I turn off USB port power under S5 mode? (7/1/2017) Answer: USB port power can be turned off by enabling "Deep Sleep” option.
Please press "F2” or "Del” during POST to enter BIOS setup, select the "Advanced” menu and enter the "Chipset Configuration” page, and adjust the "Deep Sleep” option to "Enabled in S5”.
After adjusting the setting, press "F10” to save the configuration. Then USB port power will be turned off under S5 mode.
Question: I'd like to use the PS2 mouse on PS2 port. What should I do?(7/1/2017) Answer: If your motherboard has two PS2 ports, just connect the PS2 mouse to the green PS2 port, and then the PS2 mouse can be used.
If your motherboard only has one PS2 port, please set "PS2 Y-cable” to "Enabled”. Please press "F2” or "Del” during POST to enter BIOS, select the "Advanced” menu, "Super IO Configuration”, and set the "PS2 Y-cable” option to "Enabled”. Press "F10” to save the configuration.

Question: I want to use USB Power On function on AM4 series boards, how do I set up?(6/1/2017) Answer: The USB power on function supports under Sleep (S3) and Hibernate (S4) modes under Windows OS.
Please click the Start menu button and then choose Sleep (S3 mode) and Hibernate (S4 mode) under Windows.
Question: How can I update BIOS by ASRock Instant Flash on AM4 platform?(3/1/2017) Answer: Since AMD AM4 is a new structure and we just found BIOS cannot be completely updated by our Instant Flash. Thus, for the old BIOS version released before 2017/03/07, there is no "Instant Flash” option under BIOS. To make sure BIOS update can be executed completely, please use DOS or Windows BIOS update methods to do update temporarily.
After updating to the following version, Instant Flash functions and options are supported under BIOS and it can be used for updating the newer BIOS file in the future.
Question: How do the BIOS recovery and Secure Backup UEFI functions work with the Intel Z270 motherboards with two BIOS ROM chips?(2/1/2017) Answer: For the Intel Z270 motherboards with two BIOS ROM chips, there is no need to switch BIOS ROM when doing recovery.
When booting properly, the system works on the active BIOS_A1 as picture below.
However, if the active BIOS_A1 is corrupted or damaged, after several failed boot attempts, it will automatically do BIOS recovery from the backup BIOS_B1 and then the system will still work on the active BIOS_A1. And the monitor will show Secure Backup UEFI (B-->A) function as picture below.
After finishing this function, the system will reboot and work on the active BIOS_A1.
