Question about MSI KT4V (MS-6712) Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer Shuts down and won't start up

My PC is 4 years old and, until recently, has been very reliable. all of a sudden it has started shutting down and refuses to restart. I turn on the power and the disk light flickers, but the Green Power On light doesn't come on and, although the disks are working away, I get no display. I've tried cleaning out the inside and making sure connections are seated tight. There is a slight smell of burning, but I can't see anything obvious. Given that the hard disk is working is this the Motherboard that has given up on me?

    I've started on a process of elimination and am working my way through things.

    The fan on the PSU is seized so I'm replacing that first coz I don't like the smells from it.

    If that doesn't cure it I'll addrss the Motherboard enxt, providing I can find one.

Yes it could be, although the hdd wouldnt work either, unplug the 21 pin connector from the power supply unit that is connected to the motherboard power connector and see if the plastic plug has melted into the socket, if you cant pull it out theres a good chance it has.

My Olympus Stylus 7030 won't focus and shuts off when I try to zoom.


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Why does my mac desktop computer screen start to flicker then shut off?


Remove the main battery and try again, the power supply adapter may be breaking down under load, there is no reliable way of testing other than subbing another power supply.

Hi, i have a Denon PMA 735 R amplifier which shuts down when volume increases suddenly.


Sounds like you have output transistor problems. Does it have a red protection light that comes on when it shuts down? If it does it will need serviced.
