Question about MSI : K8N Neo4 Platinum Athlon64/S939/nForce4 Ultra/DDR400/PCI-Express/ATX Motherboard (MOT81)

Open Question

Will not power on, completely dead

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?

Hi there
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

SOURCE: System will not start up. Cpu fan spins once, then nothing.

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.

I have recently installed windows 7 but there is no audio sound i think drivers have not been installed that is why my computer is lack of audio sound to hear a music please make a hand to me i mean h


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8N-Neo4-Platinum--PCB-1-0-.html#/?div=Driver&os=All

Here is no sound drivers for windows 7.

If i am wrong by the mainboard model, enter the ms xxxx number here:

http://www.msi.com/service/download/

The ms number is located on the mainboard.

The solution is to buy a sound card, to add on the mainboard.
You just have to make sure, the driver is available for your windows system.
A sound card, can be bought online, or in a computershop.

As i know, MSI is not planning to make drivers, for this mainboard for windows 7.

Good luck

Of course it can be repaired, but not by us and maybe not economically. Take it to a tech.

Try disconnecting the speakers and a new fuse. Maybe it's just a speaker shorted. Low probability.

I want complete motherboard driver


First verify that the board model is MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI. The following drivers may not work for any other board model.


adnanbhatti_2.jpg

There are two ways to download the drivers. First try the MSI live update utility. It will search for and automatically download the required drivers.

You can get the Live Utility from this page.

If somehow the utility does not work, go here and download the drivers manually one by one.

Please note that MSI does not provide all drivers for every OS and the board may not be compatible with newer systems.

Fan does not come on mobo & Fan on video card making a noise


There are many sensitive parts inside your CPU that can be destroyed by simply opening your box/chassis.
*If you are not confident that you can safely open the casing, then you should seek assistance from a qualified technician.

Remove the power cables before proceeding!

The first step in checking to see if your CPU fan is working is to remove the case cover, normally secured with screws at the back.
Most common chassis covers will slide out after the screws are removed.
*Make sure that you maintain contact with the metal part of the chassis to avoid causing ESD damage to your CPU/internals.

Next step, re-attach the power cable and avoid touching the metal chassis this time (there is a risk of shock) before you power on. You should see the fan moving at this point, if it is still working.

Fan not moving? You can take that small paint brush and very carefully run the brush along the fan blades to clear them of dust bunnies. This could also get your fan to run again. It is an immediate solution, but not long term.

It is more adviseable to replace the fan if it siezes or stops working.

Hope this helps.

K8N NEO4


cpu casing? What is that? To test the power supply, just use a paper clip in the ATX connector on the green wire, and the black wire next to it. Make sure everything that is hooked up to the power plugs, is unplugged. That should tell you if its the power supply.
