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.

I have an AsusP5P 800 mother board and the unit won't power on.


I had a very similar issue like this, how many RAM modules do you have installed? if you have 2 DIMM installed try removing the memory on at at time(try interchanging the RAMS), see if turns on. if not might be the motherboard itself thats possibly defective.

Recommended psu wattage inreplacement to 300watts psu for asusp4p800s-x


the needed wattage is directly linked to the componets you want to use other then the mobo itself. the main power surges are the CPU (takes 40 to 110 Watts) a graphics card (from 5 to over 150 Watts) the Drives (about 25-30 Watts eachs), the RAM and all the other addons and gadgets you build into your PC. Just add the different Wattages together and give it quiet some headroom. I usually drive this kinds of mobos with 400-550 Watts PSU to be on the save side, if i use a more or less "standard" graphics card, and even more with high sophistcated cards or lots of drives or such.

if you "see" low power (Volts) it might also be a problem with a partwise defective PSU.

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.

No monitor display


Hi, first verify motherboard BIOS jumpers if it's on right position, if the board has an integrated video card, remove the pci e video carnd and test with the inside one.
If you have more than one DDR memory, use them one by one.
Do this with all components desconected, like hard disk, dvd-cd rom...
If no video display, try with another power supply and all components desconected.
If you got no video the motherboard could be damaged.

I need a mother board.HELP


It would probably be cheaper & better in the long run to pick up a Intel Core 2 Duo cpu, motherboard, & RAM combo at a store like newegg.com or Tigerdirect.com than try to replace this old board. You can find a really good combo for around $400. Hope this helps.

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.....

No signal to monitor when booting.


(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.

(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.

(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor

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
