Question about MSI K8N NEO2-Platinum (MS7025) Motherboard
I'm hoping you can assist me with a problem.
MSI K8N Neo 2 Platinum Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Socket 939
Antec 550W PSU
1024 MB DDR 400 Ram (2 x 512 chips)
Geforce 6800 GT graphics card
LG DVD Writer
Recently I disconnected my PC from the mains for 3 weeks as I went away for the festive season. At this time the PC was working perfectly. I returned last saturday and reconnected the pc. Initially the motherboard logo screen appeared on the screen (as normal) but the pc froze at this state. I reset it and thereafter it refuses to POST. The pc doesn't send a signal to the monitor, which in turn, causes nothing to be displayed.
When the pc is switched on, it powers up as per usual, with fans spinning, HDD starting etc... except that it does not POST.
I have a D-bracket connected on the motherboard which allows for quick debugging. Its current state is 4 red LED's which means the CPU is incorrectly installed or damaged. I find this hard to believe as the PC has worked for many years on the same CPU. The case speaker is connected to the motherboard but does not beep... at all.
After extensive research on the web I found many people have had the same problem with the exact same specs. Various solutions existed from removing RAM to resetting CMOS. I have tried many of these options including resetting the JBAT jumper and removing the battery, to testing the RAM on a separate PC but still no result. The RAM works correctly on another pc. I have removed the graphics card but still no post. Disconnected the HDD and DVD-Writer but still no post. It was suggested that my PSU is more likely damaged than my CPU or motherboard. Unfortunately I do not have the tools to test all components in order to solve the problem.
I would appreciate any assistance you can offer.
Try to test the CPU on another machine ...
or at least remove it and reinsert it.
But if u say that u reseted the BIOS an it still not doing the post, it just could be that the motherboard is out !
It can also be the PSU as u say, but i doubd it ! Try to remove all hard drives, cdroms, etc... to limit the power usage... and see if it passes the post.
U can also try to remove the motherboard from the computer case and put it on an insolating surface and than try to boot (sometimes shorts appeare betwen the motherbord- case - psu)
