According to MSI's specification page, (http://www.msicomputer.com/product/detail_spec/product_detail.asp?model=K8T_Neo-FIS2R), this motherboard only supports 2GB of RAM. The system will likely not boot if 3GB is installed.

I am not sure which geforce video card you have, nor what motherboard nor cpu you have installed. but 400 watts should be adequate for a basic system.
I would need more info to try to help you solve this problem.

ive had a similar problem before. in the BIOS there somewhere, there is an option to make your computer use the ON BOARD VGA, or to use the PCXI. which ever one is selected is the one that the computer will use. if you can change this option in the BIOS, you might be able to use your video card.

I would check that your power supply is able to handle this card. This card requires a minimum 450 watt power supply. If you take the card out, I would imagine the computer will start fine. Also, verify that you plugged in the power connector into the video card. However, use a volt meter to test your power supply.

You need an AGP 8X graphics card for one.

AMD ATI Radeon series:


1) Better: XFX Radeon HD4650

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4914257&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (OR 1024MB) of DDR2 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 600MHz Core Clock
E) 800MHz Memory Clock
F) 55nm process technology



3) Best: HIS HD4670

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6076197&CatId=2234

A) 1GB (Or 1024MB) of DDR3 graphics ram memory
B) 128-bit bandwidth memory interface
C) 320 Stream Processors
D) 750MHz Core Clock
E) 1600MHz Memory Clock

Likes POWER! Better install a 500 Watt power supply, to keep up with the power needed for this baby!
The GX260 supposedly has a 250 Watt PSU. (Power Supply Unit)
Back in the day this PSU was made, the PSU manufacturer 'fudged' the maximum rated wattage.
Actual is more like 60 percent of what is stated.
175 watts!

The above is just IMHO about graphics card choice.

(I have motherboard's with a PCI Express x16 slot, using the PCI-E 2.0 technology.
I use Nvidia graphics cards)

No signal on monitor


You might try switching the VGA cable if you haven't. If that doesn't work then I'd agree with you in saying the motherboard is likely fried.

Computer wont turn on or boot


what size power supply are you using, if its under 400 watts it may just be under powered. Large video cards 512mb and over take a lot of power. Try removing the video card and see if you can get the pc to power up, hopefully you have on board video.

How did you blow the cpu_fan connector, did you short it out? I would first supect the power supply is under rated, second a blown power supply, or mother board.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

Looking to buy a new graphics card


You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.

New build computer wont turn on (ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939)


The ATX power supply needs to have pin16(PS_On#) to be connected to COM for it to work. When you press the power switch on the front panel of the computer, you are essentially making this connection. Check that the cable from the power supply to the motherboard is making good connection. You can verify operation of the power supply by shorting Pin16 to pin17 on the powersupply output, with a paper clip. Pin16 is usually a green wire and 17 is black. Hope this helps. -Vish
