Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard

1 Answer

4 red led's

K8N Neo was working fine. Had some glitches with the USB ports no biggie. No the system will not post at all..hard drive runs fine on another machine. 4 Red Led's at the back of the board? I assume this is not a good sign. Any thoughts?

This sounds like a corrupt BIOS, or another issue with the northbridge. It's possible the motherboard was cooked by your power supply, I've had it happen. You will probably be able to use all of your parts in your computer, but you'll more then likely have to replace your motherboard, and maybe processor. The harddrive, video card, and other parts should be fine.

Does the MSI K8n NEO4 Platinum SLI motherboard support the Geforce GTX 550 Video Card?


The MSI K8N NEO 4 Platinum Edition mobo, has an AGP graphics expansion slot. (Accelerated Graphics Port)

It uses AGP graphics cards that are either 4X, or 8X. (Supports 1.5 Volt AGP graphics cards, hence 8X)

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo-Platinum.html#/?div=Detail

Click on the Specification tab. Look under the bold - Slots - subheading.

(Overview, { Which is the tab it automatically opens to}, Specification, Download, Support, News and Awards, Where to Buy )

This is Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130625

Click on the Details tab. (Overview, Details, Feedback)

Under the bold - Interface - heading, and to the right of the subheading - Interface, we see the interface is - PCI-Express 2.0 x16.

Tells you a lot right off the bat, if you know what you are looking at.

1) The graphics expansion slot you need on your motherboard, is a PCI-Express x16 slot.

You have an AGP graphics expansion slot. (That uses either 4X, or 8X AGP graphics cards)

2) The PCI-Express technology used is PCI-Express 2.0

Therefore the answer is No, Stephen.

[ More info on AGP graphics technology, and PCI-Express technology,

1) AGP:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

2) PCI-Express:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

Now if someone asks you, why the GeForce GTX 550 graphics card will not work on your motherboard, you can explain why in detail, instead of just saying some dude/dudette on FixYa, said it will not work.

Are you sure some 'Mom and Pop' computer store will not trade out, a decent AGP graphics card, for the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 you have?
Always worth a shot. Just MHO.

System not booting, k8n


Have you tried resetting the bios? turn off the computer and remove the power cable connected to the power ATX power supply, look for the "clr_cmos" jumper and change the settings from 1-2 to 2-3 for approx. 10 secs, then return the jumpers to original settings and reconnnect the power cable and turn on the computer. This was the solution when i had the same problem before. Hope this helps you too.

MSI K8N NEO2 Platinum NOT Posting + No beep + No display


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)
