    well, there is nothing to do besides replace the board... not really sure what you think any of us could suggest to you. The BIOS is the main brain of a mainboard, and if that is non functional, then well you don't have a computer period.

Hi anp62, you can contact MSI & order a new bios chip. Most manufacture's charge about $5.00 US.
It is worth it before trashing the board. You can contact MSI at the link below. http://www.msicomputer.com/support/OnlineTS.asp

Check MSI's Basic Troubleshooting Guide, so I don;t have to type all these checks.

Abit av8 bios post codes 8.3 - 8.6 - 9.c What is failing on boot ? I get one long beep followed by 4 short beeps. I have swapped video cards and reflashed the bios with no help. If I reboot 2 or 3...


I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.


Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

After power on Fans are running but no Videosignal, no bios startup.


Could be 3 things Memory or CPU or Powersupply. are you getting any beeps if so how many, how long. try taking all the memory out and powering up see if it beeps if so try to put one stick of memory in at a time and see if it will boot. if you get no beeps with memory out check powersupply some PS's have a red switch on back for current input. switch back and fourth about 20 times uning a pen and set it to the right current for you location. put ram back in see if it will boot if not its trial and error of the PS and the CPU replacement and it still could be the RAM giving false readings. yea i know sounds like a ball of fun.

Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

L7VMM2 wont boot (no post) plz help


Sounds like the CMOS battery on the motherboard needs replacing...i would try clearing CMOS first, replace battery and test voltage at the CPU (through the BIOS) If that dosen't help you likely have faulty capacitors.
If you get it to boot, im sure drivers and BIOS will need updates if it's been stored 2 yrs.

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot


Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

Wont boot


Check all connections. If you connect your pc to the mains supply and the fans run straight awayeven before turning on the computer switch ( and no beeps, no video). Well this could indicate a dead CPU. I have experienced this on 2 systems. I replaced the CPU and the motherboard and ram were OK .The CPU was totally dead and ended up in the bin!

Wont boot.


normally this happens if your MB sensor circuitry is not detecting the correct speed of your fan or the correct temp of your system and proc. Try to Load the default settings of your bios and test again. if still having same problem what I suggest is check the 12volts output and 5 volts output of your PSU. To check it you need a Multimeter set to DC volts and put the negative probe to the black wire in a standard PSU plug and the red probe to the yellow cable (for 12v) and for the 5 volts just transfer the red probe to the red cable. If you have the correct voltage output, you have to hot wire your Proc Fan to get DC supply directly from your PSU. Your Proc Fan normally runs using 12volts DC.

Hope this helps.

Your not getting any video at boot up? I would be looking at your video card first. Remove & reinstall. Than try again to enter bios. Still no? Reset the bios on the motherboard. You'll have to remove the battery & check it for 3volt. Replace, got video enough to enter bios? Disconnect all non needed items. Like diconnect CD/DVD rom drives power cable & data cable. Got two Hard drives. Connect only one. Two banks of dimms. Use only one. 1PS2 mouse & keyboard. Try boot up again. Listen for post beep. (1 beep). Any other beeps, count how many and if long or short. Let me know. Lastly did you apply thermal grease between the cpu & heatsink?. The idea here is to get down to basic needs only. If it were your cpu it wouldn't even power up. Than again every board is a bit differant. Give this all a try & poat back. Good luck!

No boot on start up all fans start but no video


I had same problem!
I figured there was something wrong with my memory because that is what the manual says the constant beeps mean.
I bought a new PNY memory stick 1 gb DDR and got the same beeps when i put it in.
So being totally disappointed I tried putting the Stick in the #3 DIMM. I booted up and IT WORKED!
I have not called tech support or tried both 1 & 3 DIMM together but I will try after I set up the rest of my computer.
