    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.

No boot - short beep, long beep (it is not a memory problem)


When your computer boots up, the Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) performs an all-systems Power On Self-Test (POST).
The POST tests your computer's most important components, including the motherboard itself, the system's memory and the video card.
If the computer deviates from its standard beep, it may indicate a very serious problem with your computer, or it may simply indicate that you need to replace a system fan or a memory stick. BIOS beep codes vary according to manufacturer.

Start your computer.
Pay attention to the number of beeps and the length of the beeps.
There are short and long beeps.
Write down your observations.
Write down the BIOS type if this information is on your screen.
Consult your computer documentation if you don't know what type of motherboard you have.
Visit your computer manufacturer's support website for your computer model if you purchased a pre-built machine.


Look up your BIOS manufacturer (AMI, Award and Phoenix, for example) at a BIOS beep code website such as 5StarSupport, PC Hell or PC Guide (see Below).
Match the your computer's beep code with the beep code listing for your BIOS manufacturer.

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.

Amibios post code on a gigabyte board, 8 beeps 2 beeps 1 beep on GA-6rx board, no video output, have changed cpu, memory, video card, keyboard, hd etc, still no boot----help!


Hope this helps ... from the Ami BIOS website ....

8.2 POST BIOS Beep Codes
Number of Beeps
Description
1 Memory refresh timer error.
3 Base memory read/write test error
6 Keyboard controller BAT command failed
7 General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
8 Display memory error (system video adapter)
8.2.1 Troubleshooting POST BIOS Beep Codes

Number of Beeps
Troubleshooting Action
1, 3 Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.

6, 7 Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer. Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
• If beep codes are generated when all other expansion cards are absent, consult your system manufacturer’s technical support.
• If beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning card.

8 If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.

Sytem wont boot


This time your system is very ok... theres a possible reason why its automatically on without pressing the button and cannot see a device even hard disk...
Here is a tip:
1. Check the CMOS Battery maybe its weak, or try to change it a new one, and
2. Change also your power supply it might the current flow of electricity are not normal... i know its ridiculous but i experience just like yours...

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.

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.
