It may be your motherboard that is failing. Your LEDs and fans turn on but do you see any lights on your motherboard, or do any of the fans on the CPU start running?

I need info about what the cpu phase leds on aN msi 990fxagd65 mean

They indicate the number of different power phases that the CPU is currently using. In order to save power the motherboard is able to reduce the voltage to (and performance of) the CPU. In 2 phase mode (2 LEDs) it basically switches between high performance, and low performance. 4 LEDs means that there are two additional intervals in between the high and low power settings. 6 LEDs indicate six total phases, etc.
I believe that there is a greater possibility of system instability as you increase the number of phases that the motherboard switches through.

I have an Intel E210882 mother board. Within a week, it was starting to become hard to boot, then I had to boot in F8 mode, and now when I turn on the power switch, the LEDs light turn on and the cpu fan...

If you have another computer that will hook up to the internet, download a copy of any live Linux CD (UBUNTU) and see if the computer will boot with that (you download a image file that burns to a boot able cd). If it will boot with a live CD, then you have a Hard drive / operating system problem. If it will not boot from that, you have a mother board problem. Start removing things from the motherboard, unplug and remove everything then plug hook up things one at a time.

Ga-h55m-s2h board not booting, nothing on screen . cpu fan spins and everything is indicating activity. Post give 1 long beep and 2 quick. phase leds 1 and 2 green, 3 orange, 4 red

Just had the same problem, same board. This mb does not play well with all types of RAM. I had a single 2gb Patriot dimm and it did the exact same thing, removed the RAM and it would boot but no screen. Replaced the single dimm with 2 - 1gb dimms and it booted right up with no problem. Hope this helps.

Motherboard won't boot: no noise, no nothing...

Shorting the two leads will work but don't keep the two wires together. They are not ment to stay connected. Consider replacing your cases ATX power switch. Take a look at the link provided for a new switch;

The green LED on the motherboard means the board is in "Stand by mode". This green LED uses 5V DC to light the LED. After replacing your PS back into your system it may function just fine.

Good luck.

Abit Fatal1y FP-IN9 Boot Problem!?

check your jumper settings. You can probably view jumper diagram online. Make sure all drivers are downloaded and up to date. Try placing windows installation disc in before booting pc. Also check boot setting to make sure hardrive boots second and cd boots first. Also make sure your hard drive jumper is set to master.

Motherboard message LED message is --

Your motherboard has died .
No beep code explains it all .
LED lights and even fans spins only tells me that your getting power to the motherboard , but No beep code is crucial .
Every motherboard will beep once when your first turn on and beep once again before the Opertional System boots up .
Sorry again for your loss ...
