Question about MSI K9MM-V Motherboard
When this happens, the MSI flash screen doesn't even come up and the booting sequence goes no further. I then have to power down then back up again.
Sounds like the power supply is failing. The power supplies have protection circuitry in them so that when there is excess current draw, the output voltage is 'clamped' (reduced to a lower level) so that the power supply won't burn up. If you are consistently experiencing this, that's a sign. If you added another drive, a new video card or upgraded the processor a little while ago, the power supply might not quite be up to the task. Even with nothing new added, a lot of power supplies don't like to be operated at much over 60@ of their 'rated' capacity, and their ratings are significantly lowered at any little temperature rise.
