MSI 7041 Motherboard problem?

Hi,

I am working on a generic computer which appears to have a damaged motherboard? When you switch the computer on the cpu and psu fans work, but it does not perform the POST or boot into Windows. There are no POST bleeps or signals to the monitor. I have tried inserting a VGA card, instead of using the onboard graphics card and have connected the monitor to it, but nothing appears on the screen in both these scenarios.

Any ideas what else I can try? Many thanks.

RAM would be my next guess. If the board is bad, so could the RAM be as well. Try swapping some known good RAM and see what happens. Or, at the least (if you have more than one stick), remove all but one and try again. Repeat until all sticks have been tried by themselves - you could just have one RAM stick causing the problem.

However, usually even if you have one bad stick, your system will still post, just show less memory. On the off-chance that all sticks are bad, then you might have similar symptoms.

Sounds like a bad mobo to me :(

I have had a motherboard failure the MS-7357 (V1.X) Mainboard... needing upgrade thinking of the MSI G41TM-E43 LGA 775 Intel G41 will i have to mess arround with the power switches with the case as this...


Boards don't come with switches. The problem with company made computers is that they get a manufacturer to make a board especially for the case they make. They do this to specifically stop you doing what you are trying to do, upgrade a machine with a proprietary board in THEIR case. You will find trouble at the rear of the machine getting to sockets and plugs.

It is far better to buy a good case, and then you can swap out components with ease. The case that held my Asus boarded P4 with the first SATA drives now has an Asus Quad Core in it with SATA 2.
