    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!

Hello
Sounds like you need a new cooling fan.You may be able to save yours with some electrical contact cleaner spray.
Remove fan and spray.
The cpu will heat up quick and shut down everything to protect itself.Im sure once you get a new fan you will be up and running again.
You may consider reapplying new conductive paste to the processor while you have the case open.

I want msi n1996 on board VGA driver


A lot of people have been looking for N1996 board drivers, thinking that N1996 is the model number for their MSI products, such as MSI motherboards, optical drives, VGA cards and etc.
Well, that IS NOT the model number because it is not possible that alot of products sharing the same model number, right?

My cooling fan on my mother board start making noise now as soon as you power up the pc it shuts down could it over heat that quickly or did it ruin mother board?


It is possible to burn out a processor in a matter of seconds without cooling. Please do not attempt to restart the unit, until you replace the colling fan on the processor. If it's not the processor fan/heatsink, you may have lucked out, but don't restart it till you replace the fans.The fan that sits on your cpu is the main concern, if it's one of the others the board should shut down automatically in order to stop this scenario from occuring.

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.
