Question about MSI : K8N Neo4 Platinum Athlon64/S939/nForce4 Ultra/DDR400/PCI-Express/ATX Motherboard (MOT81)
So I moved recently and setup the system (kn8 neo4 platinum) in its new home. Opened it up to make sure everything was still seated. Plugged everything up and nothing but a slight "electronic" noise that lasted a split second. I checked both on and reset switch functions, and jumped the power supply (volts are good) and all was ok. So im assuming its something on the board. Is it a complete loss? Can I just keep the PS jumped to power the system, or would I be asking for more trouble if its a deaper problem than just turning on?

One Long and Two Short Beeps = Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue.
If you are using a PCI Express graphics card remove it and use the on-board VGA/DVI port
If it is the on-board graphics you are using clear the cmos
<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted.
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

It is more than likely that when your old power supply died a death, it damaged some components on the motherboard. Replace the Motherboard and chip, and you should be back in business. You can pick up some good value bundles to save money on buying the parts seperately. The power supply working again after turning off and on, is because there is a little trip in the power supply that triggers when it detects a fault. Powering down resets that trip allowing it to try and work again.

SOURCE: MSI K8N --Compatible video card
Get another GForce video card a later model with at least 256Mb of memory. If you play games you might want a higher spec GForce video card.

Make sure the processor is seated firmly. Also make sure that the MB connectors are securely plugged in. Looks like there is a main connector AND a 4 pin connector on this board with the 4 pin being just to the right of the ports that are on the back edge of the board.
