Hello download the manual here:

Look here also:

Check the power supply, and all your power connections again.
Try to reset the cmos by removing the battery, and inset it again.

Look also for bad caps on the mainboard:

If they look like this,scrap the mainboard.
It does not pay, to let them be changed.

Good luck

SOURCE: MSI k8ngm2-h mobo doesn't recognize PCI-E slot anymore!

Just a suggestion for you to try.
This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not.
The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express.
Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit.
Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.

Looks like your motherboard is a MSI KM4AM-L detailed here:

http://www.msicomputer.co.uk/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=572&maincat_no=1

If so, then it has an AGP slot which will run at 4x and 8x.

Remember to check the BIOS settings after you install it to make sure it is set to 8x, if that is what your card will take.

i would get another agp card and be done with it. these cards can be very cheap now. keep the pci graphics card in the hp. i'm sure that is better than the onboard graphics. good luck.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds.

If the computer boots or it seems like it booted up all the way except the screen is black try the steps below:

If it is a laptop:

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

If it is a Desktop:
Try using another monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original monitor and not display then your Video Card in the computer is bad.

If the computer is not powering on or did not boot up all the way try the steps below:

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two?

Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Motherboard cpu fan runs, no post beeps then power down


You either have a Video Card issue, Memory issue or you need to apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heatsink on the motherboard. Also reseat the CPU by taking it out and putting it back in.
Make sure the video card is in the slot as far as it will go. Push it down all the way in the slot.

ET1161-07 onboard Video gone bad. I tried a Gforce 8800GS 384mb card, that works, and I have no video, 1 long beep that never stops. Ican't get into the bios with the onboard video or the new video and...


Hi.

One continuous beep means that you probably have not put the graphics card in the PCI express slot or there is a short somewhere in the system.

Follow these steps to try and resolve the problem:

Remove the power cord and the video lead from the back of the machine and then remove the side panel to reveal the motherboard.
Remove the graphics card and take a look at the PCI Express slot for dust. If you see any dust get a clean, dry paintbrush and clean the dust from the slot and then blow on the slot to remove the rest of it.
Next look at the brass contacts on the graphics card and clean then. Re-seat the card making sure that it is fully pushed down in the slot.
Check that any other cards you have installed in the machine are seated properly.
Without putting the side panel back on, connect both the video lead and the power cord and turn it on. DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE COMPUTER!!!

If the computer boots up turn it back off and put the side panel back on. If not then please post back telling me what the computer is doing.


Good luck.

Gateway Laptop MC8741 will not turn on. Replaced battery....replaced power cord. Noticed that fan was not working a day prior.


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

The problem is the system memory, get yourself a clean, dry soft paintbrush, remove the power cord from the back of the unit, remove the memory and clean the brass contacts on the memory modules, next clean the memory slots of any dust that may have built up and reseat the memory.
Put the side panel back on and plug in the power cord then power up.

Do you have a video card installed or are you using the built-in video? If yes, check the video card if it is installed in the motherboard firmly, first unplug the power cord in the power supply then try removing the card then install it again in the agp slot carefully pushing it firmly, then put the power cord back to the power supply and try to power it on. Does it have a display now?

If the video is still blank try reinstalling the memory module in the motherboard, first turn the pc off then unplug the power cord, next remove the memory modules from the motherboard by simultaneously pushing locks on each side of the memory, then use a clean paint brush to remove any dust on the memory modules copper contacts and also clean the memory slots in the motherboard, then install the memory back to the slot making sure to match the notch near the middle of the memory to the memory slot in the motherboard, and also make sure that the locks on each side is firm. Then connect the power cord to the power supply then turn it on. Does it have a display now?

In the condition where your using the built in video and a known working memory and still there is no display, the motherboard could be defective already.

Try getting a slower cpu, I have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 512mb of ram and it works great, I emailed them about upgrading ram and they said: "Upgrading the memory would not affect the Video card, unless the memory is not compatible with the motherboard, then the computer might not turn on at all."
