Question about MSI PT880 Neo FSR Motherboard
Hi there, ok... I turn my computer on and it starts to boot up then all of a sudden it turns itself off. I push the power button on again and it doesn't come on at all.Then I unplug the power cord from the back then plug it back in and push power button again thn my computer comes on and does the sam and shuts down.And yes the fans are coming on.
Hey! i had the same problem after i took the computer apart for a clean!!! What happened is that when i took the heatsink off the cpu, the thermal paste had fallen apart a little and i put it back on.... to find computer booting up for about 3 seconds then turning off. i think that when you fire the comp up it turns on the cpu causing it to overheat and shut itself off, just cleaned off old paste and put on some new paste and it fired up! hope this helps you! sorry bout the slight delay!

Sounds like a hardware failure. Possilbly the motherboard, more than likely, the power supply.
But then - maybe neither.
Shut it off completely, once you restart, start hitting the F8 key ( once a second ) until you see the " Safe Mode" choices screen. Drop down and select the " Last known Good Configuration" option and hit enter.
If this doesnt work, try the same proceedures ( restart - F8 ) but this time select safe mode - at the top of the list.
If you sucessfully boot in safe mode, you have a system file problem that could be virus related, file table corruptions or registry problems or all combined.
