FM2-A85XA-G43 Desktop Motherboard mobo is constantly blinking the red light for the network status on the monitor and many times it say there is no network connected but then connect a second or so later. Modem isn't having any problem and not seeing this problem with any of the other computers and Ipad that uses this modem.
One way of fixing it is by getting a netword card if u you are pretty sure dat the problem is with you mobo LAN port... The NIC/LAN card is very cheap .....

Hi switchblade, Some of this will seem basic or even a rehash of what you?ve already done but please keep an open mind. The one thing I?ve learned over the years is never assume anything especially when things aren?t working like they?re supposed to. -The first thing I would do is to check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. It?s possible that whatever caused them to replace the motherboard could have been caused by a defective power supply or vice versa. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. -Try a more basic known good video card, a PCI if you have one. -Again whatever problem caused MSI to warranty replace your motherboard could have damaged your processor or memory. I would have expected a beep code but if you?ve gotten this far without resolving your problem we?re running out of possibilities. -If nothing changes can you tell us some more about the status of the computer or what led up to this? Did you just build it; just install a new part, power problems, anything? Let us know what you turn up and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

SOURCE: MSI 7041 Motherboard problem?
RAM would be my next guess. If the board is bad, so could the RAM be as well. Try swapping some known good RAM and see what happens. Or, at the least (if you have more than one stick), remove all but one and try again. Repeat until all sticks have been tried by themselves - you could just have one RAM stick causing the problem.
However, usually even if you have one bad stick, your system will still post, just show less memory. On the off-chance that all sticks are bad, then you might have similar symptoms.
Sounds like a bad mobo to me :(

On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How are you testing these boards? Have you completely installed them into the chassis, hooked up all the wires, attached all the components, put in all the cards, processor, HDD, etc.? If not, then I don't know what you think it's going to do otherwise. These boards need to be handled as minimally as possible to make sure they do NOT receive any static charge build up to damage any sensitive components. When a mobo powers up it performs a POST (Power On Self Test) and this includes a complete check to make sure that all the components are attached. If not, it shouldn't do anything. If it can't past POST, then it won't go to the BIOS, and in modern boards, cooling fans are controlled either by the BIOS or even the OS to adjust for cooling power and fan size/sound. More than likely, if your fan is turning on initially, it's just current coarsing through the board. When you attach the 4 pin connector it's trying to power up the board completely and the fan's wont run until they're controllers tell them to.
