Hi,

Sounds like one of the components on your motherboard is faulty.

it could be simply the battery for the clock or the memory or sound etc.. check each and replace.

Also, when the PC starts just before the error there are certain number of beeps. Count how many beeps as they represent a fault type.

I hope this helps,

Thanks.

When i cut my computer on nothing happens no beeps no loading or video. the only thing that seems to work is the fans. i havent done anything to it at all just cut it off for awhile then went back to it...


Check to make sure your Power supply hasn't taken a partial death.
You can take it to your local best buy - Computer store. Test it first!
A partial failure from your power supply will only power some of your system. (fans)
If the power supply tests pass. Then you might be looking at a board ISSUE!
Check all the Capacitors on the board and see if any of them HAVE popped.
PICTURE of a Blown cap!

These would be the first items to check on - the most common.

Good luck and Hopefully it's just the power supply. New Egg.com

Nothing get displyaed once pc on


try and find the installation manual for the exact model of system board and verify if the front panel connectors on the system board have been connected correctly. i suspect you might have inversed the power btn and power led cables. if this is not the case, then you might want to reset your power management settings in the BIOS setup.

MSI K9A2 CF motherboard powers up, but nothing happens


try to get into the bios and see if the function of the power switch assigned differently. there are MB that use the a hotkey in the keyboard to power-up the system. It should be there in bios. Read the MB's manual too. On OFF state, try typing "O" and "N" then hit enter
