    My MD5000 motherboard has a similar problem.The Pe- on (green wire) conecting the motherboard to the power suplpy does not ground on switch on. The PS will only bring on 3.3 & 12v if i diconnect this wire and put PS end down to 0v. PC works great however only problem is PS stays running after shutdown so you have to turn off the mains supply.

    I have been told its static? but i wish someone would give me a more decent answer. Heres hoping

Hi,
Three are a couple things you can check/try. Remove the memory, (If you have more than one DIMM load only one). Boot the system. Try each dimm in turn one by one. If your board is old. I see three ISA slots on the board, so it's old. It is possible the thermal tap or thermal grease may have dried up. (This will cause your CPU to overheat & shut down). The grease is located between the heatsink assembly & the CPU. Remove the heatsink assembly. Take a clean rag with a little alcohol on it & wipe off all old thermal grease. (Care full, do not over soak the rag & do not scratch either surface, heatsink or CPU). Double check all connections while in the case. Try booting again. Most CPU fans last for 50,000Hrs or five years. If the steps above did not help, you may need a new heatsink assembly, this will come with a new fan. Lastly, if all of the above has not helped. Check the voltage of the cmos/bios battery. It should test 3volts DC. If it test under replace it. On the outside shot, if you have done all of the above try another known to be good power supply. (If your CPU was bad nothing would turn on, not even the fan).
Give it a once over!

Good luck lieutenant_1!

Where can i buy motherboard for msi ae2020m


Because your computer is an All-in-one you may have problems finding one on the secondhand or retail market. The best thing I can suggest is to remove the old one( or at least get a really good look at it and) check the size in mm. Then buy a compatible board and CPU. For the heat from a failed fan to have fried the board it would need to have been forced to stay on. There is a thermal cutout and a fan cutout built in to the board. Try just replacing the fan first and see if that helps.It could be the power supply unit that has failed and that is why it doesn't start up now.

PC WON'T POWER UP


With nothing attached to the mother board except 1 stick of RAM in the first slot the power supply and monitor attached, and then  it still turns off ; I would make sure the heat sink was clean Reseat the Cpu and try it again. Now if the same results. I would attempt to substitute a different known good power supply. If that would not work, you are down to substituting a different CPU .

Pin configuration for front panel on n1996 motherboard


n1996 is NOT the model number. ALL MSI boards are labeled n1996 - it's their C-Tick number. You need to find the actual model number which should be listed on a sticker near the main CPU socket. Search for that on msi's website.
