Question about MSI PM8M-V Motherboard
I am using a KVM switch when both pc's are on they both work, when I shut one down the other one start beeping very fast, so when I restart it, that is when I hear one long beep and 6 short ones. I also hooked up the PC with out the KVM switch thinking I had a bad KVM and the pc still boots up with the same error. I am getting a check sum error so the option is to hit the F2 to load defaults, not sure if the Mother board is bad or what. It is a MSI
When a system reports a check sum error the bios is telling you the information stored from the last working boot does not match the current settings stored in the bios. Please power down your MSI system, unplug the power cord. Open the case & clear the bios. Location of JBAT1 on page 3 in manual.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1 page 10 in the manual. Remove the battery/cmos. Check it's voltage with a volt meter. It should test to 3volts DC. Anything less & the battery needs to be replaced.
While in the case re-check all data cables & power cables for good connection.
The MSI board uses the Award bios. Your current beep code of 1 long & six short is not a common beep code for the Award bios. See bios beep codes here: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
If the battery checks out ok, you may need to update the bios. Go to MSI: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=205
To update your MSI bios (Option only if bios clear fails to resolves the check sum issue).
Good luck canturob!
