Question about Intel Motherboard

New Motherboard Problem

Not sure if this is a new thing or not, But I recently upgraded to the MSI K9A2 CF-F Motherboard and new AMD Phenom X3 8650 CPU. Everything else is old and well tested to work fine. Now that I upgraded, I can not boot fully into windows. As in, It gets almost done loading windows and then reboots. All drivers are installed using Safe Mode and I am using Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2. Raid is seeing 1 of the 3 Hard Drives installed. Video card is fine and Ram is fine. Everything else is working fine just having a big problem with Windows rebooting on each and every boot. Not sure what to do about this. Please help!

    Okay, I figured out the problem. It was the AMD Dual Core Optimizer I had installed, No longer needed it and windows loaded it anyways. I could not unistall it BUT I could take it OUT of the directory that it was in and dropped it onto my Desktop. Now windows boots just fine. Thank you for the update though.

I believe you have a driver conflict
Check your BIOS is set for CPU etc.
And Uninstall all drivers And see if computer start with only the windows drivers present.
As if you have just installed windows and no M/board drivers.
And reinstall M/board drivers one at a time Should fix your problem

It is possible that the processor may be defective but that is very rare. Take the processor off of the motherboard and reseat it. Make sure that you are using thermal paste(preferably aluminum) properly. The motherboard has a function in it that if the processor overheats it will shut the computer down to prevent damage. Also check to make sure that you RAM is fully seated and also that it is compatible with your motherboard. I have seen several instances where the RAM was not compatible with the motherboard and the computer will not boot.

I bought a MSi 790gx-g65 mobo and an AMD Phenom II x4 940 which is am2+. Everything I've heard about this mobo is that it's am2+ and am3 capable, will the Phenom II am2+ I just bought work in this mobo?


Yes it will, but you'll need to update the bios to the latest one in order to be sure the processor is recognized. The 790 chipset will make that board an excellent performer with the Phenom 940. Give it as much dual channel ram as you can afford, up to the max of 4 gig for a 32 bit O/S or 64 gig for a 64 bit system.

New PC shutting down with MSI K9A2 mother board


this is a problem complexing situation because here are involved more than one device that causing this, if you have time and parts to experiment is a good think, you have to take out from your board cpu ram and vga-s and put in their place a second component(take from your friend or if you know that guy in service maybe halping you with parts so even him is taking experience of this situations). after testing your Mb with second components if it working fine no shut downs no crahes, then problem is in one of other components, try it taking out second parts one by one eny time, replacing with your components. begin with vga(or vga-s if you have more than one but is better to put it and prove them one by one to diagnose if their have problems) after doing this and you didnt finded problem in vga/s let your part in place and change second ram taht you puted with yours(if have more than a module prove it one by one each time reboting system after each one.) if even in your ram you dont have problems, so change cpu/s. one of this components without dubt is faulty.
if problem resolved and you dont have more problems and didnt find a faulty component and your pc is working fine so it was a miss making.
try all experiments with mother board outside case. some time shrt circuit of Mb with case is causing problem, after try it in case if you dont finded problems, in any way that i told you up.

Bios Beeps during reboot


According to the information at:

http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

AMI beep codes of 1 long and 3 short are, in fact, correctly identified as memory errors. One thing to note is if this memory is Dual Channel, you can only install the memory in groups of two. You must first fill DIMM slot 1 and 3 before filling DIMM slots 2 and 4.

The below website has much more information about your particular motherboard and there's a note about some JEDEC setting for memory that you might want to watch out for or disable to see if it improves stability.

http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K9A2_CF-F_V2&class=mb

As for Windows XP 32-bit not recognizing more than 3.5 (at most) memory, this is unavoidable. To see all 8 GB, you would need a 64-bit version of Windows. This is something that cannot be altered by BIOS or memory choices, unfortunately. Feel lucky in the fact that you have XP Pro as XP Home will only recognize up to 2.5GB. You'll never utilize all 8GB unless you upgrade your OS, so keep that in mind!
