Question about MSI K8T Neo-FSR Motherboard

Open Question

MSIK8Tneo MB Early Chipset initialization comes on on the D-link. I replaced the the Pwr supply as it was bad but still get same issue. Previously I formatted the dive and reloaded XP...My memory is fine as I tested both modules. This is a 754 socket with AMD 3700+ CPU...Machine will boot, post and windows will come up then the machine will reboot and windos won't come up because it's hung at Early chipset inilization. I wanted to reformate the drive but when I boot from the CD I get an error code and the machine crashed. Didn't write down the error code and I am running some diagnostic s/w now. Do you think the board is bad? I also loaded the MB drives after Win XP was loaded. this loaded the ethernet drivers so I could get to the internet

Your issue may very well be a RAM problem. I use MSI boards for most of my built computers and I have run into this 1 time. Try another stick of ram or if you have more than one in the system use just one at a time and see what happens. Also check to see if you have any Capacitors that are failing. You can tell this by making sure that all the little tops are flat not bulged. If you see any of them bulged you can replace it if you know how to solder but normally this is a temporary fix the board at that time is failing and needs to be replaced. After researching more about this particular board it would appear that the board is picky about its RAM. The driver download page for this board series is located here:

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=k8t+neo

This is a page with links to specific boards in that series since I didnt know your EXACT model. Click the link to your exact model and then click the Drivers link on your boards page and you will find the drivers you asked for.

Also you may consider flashing the BIOS. Be careful though. If it fails your board will be dead. Follow the instructions for your board to the letter and you shouldnt have any problems.

There is also a driver utility that you can download from MSI that helps you automatically get your drivers and Bios updates.

Hope this helps...

No power from gigabyte motherboard


Nope

Just basic diagnostic tools

First thing to check IS the Power Supply.
Then the diagnosis goes on.

So far all you have told me is an assumption. You ASSUME the Power Supply is OK.

Don't.

1) If ALL of the LED's were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can draw from 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is,

By having JUST the CPU on the motherboard, and the fan on the Power Supply doesn't work; you have just PROVED that.

Do you have a multimeter?
An economical one can be purchased for as little as $5 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores.

There are 3 main voltages to check. Check while PSU is plugged into mobo. (Power Supply Unit; MOtherBOard)

A) 3.3 Volts
B) 5 Volts
C) 12 Volts
All are DC Voltage. (Dotted line over a solid line for Multimeter)

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

The Orange wires are 3.3 Volts
The Red wires are 5 Volts
The Yellow wires are 12 Volts. All are DC Voltage. (DCV)

The 24-pin ATX main power cable is left plugged into the mobo.
The BACK of the power cable's connector; is where the wires go in.

Power Supply unplugged from power; a straightened out paperclip is inserted down into the socket hole with an Orange wire in it.
The paperclip slides down alongside the insulation of the Orange wire, and touches a metal female terminal.

Every wire going into the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, ends in a Molex female metal terminal,

http://www.molex.com/molex/products/datasheet.jsp?part=active/0002081202_CRIMP_TERMINALS.xml&channel=Products&Lang=en-US

The brass tip openings can be seen, in the Playtool link's middle photo. (Tip openings; Front. Paperclip touches Back)
MUST touch that metal terminal.

Another paperclip is slid down into ANY socket hole, with a Black wires in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Making sure the paperclip jumper wires, are of the correct length by cutting; there is no way they will accidentally touch each other.

Positive (Red) probe lead of multimeter to Orange wire paperclip;
Negative (Black) probe lead of multimeter to Black wire paperclip.
You should read 3.3 Volts (DC)

Do the same for the Red - 5 Volt wire. Red wire and Black wire.
12 Volt - Yellow wire and Black wire.

Post back in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

On another note;
Did you just recently mount the mobo to the computer case?
Did you use metal Standoff's, or plastic Spacers?
(Standoff - Hex shaped brass piece, usually 1/2 inch tall; and with a threaded hole on one end, and a threaded shaft on the other)

The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate; or is an integral part of the computer case.

IF, there is a Standoff on the Support Plate, that is NOT lined up to a motherboard mounting hole, it can touch exposed solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard.

This will short circuit the motherboard. MOST of the time when the 'offending' Standoff is removed; everything is OK.

When your motherboard is stuck on any of these signals, that's a clue that something is wrong with that particular device on the board. Replace it and try again.

Good Luck

Nothing happens when I press the power button. No


What about the power supply? I bet it's supply's issue. Otherwise make sure that PWR button wires are connected properly and to the correct terminals of the motherboard

If there are two wires running from the power button on your case to the motherboard, take them off and try jumpering those two terminals with a jumper or something that will make contact for just a second and them take back off. Your power button may have fried along with the power supply.

T3624 MB someone pulled off the 3 wire pairs to the front bezel. What's the pin out for the 2 leds & power on??


According to the internet, your computer has an Intel 845GV chipset motherboard. Intel tends to use a generic pattern for connecting the front panel connectors. A description can be found on intel's site.
If this doesn't solve your problem, comment back with the motherboard model number. Look on the board, it should be printed somewhere, and it should start with D845GV...something something...

My Intel D845EPI/D845GVSR MB processor does not boot up. No BIOS or POST is dispayed on the screen


Try to use working processor from your friend, If the problem still the same possible your motherboard has been damage. Ask for a warranty for the supplier.

Don't rate me Inappropriate if you don't like my solution or rate me SOLVED if this solution solved your problem. Thanks
