MSI KT4 ULTRA MOTHERBOARD NOT BOOTING?

My freind has a custom built computer that's about 6ys old and has been working fine until two days ago when he added a 500gig HD and a 1gig memory card. As soon as he added he turn the machine back on would turn right back off. He repeated this several times with the same result. He removed all upgrades and tried again and finally it stayed on but something fell and hit the bottom of the case, come to find out it's somekind of really small diod and it was so hot that it left a burnt mark on the bottom of the case and stuck to his finger when he tried to pick it up. He has gave this machine to me to fix since I built it for him but I can't figure out where this diod came from. Now, the machine comes on, hd light stays solid and I get no video at all. Will not boot at all. I think he possibly torched his mb somehow but would like second opinion. Also have tried another video card in a pci port and nothing, he has a 64meg agp video card now, any help would be appreciated, thanks

The first to do is remove all of the ide data cables and any pci cards from the motherboard,in case any of the cards are damaged or the hard drives or cdroms are damaged,install the original memory,or re-seat the modules,clear the cmos(remove battery for a few minutes with the power cord removed) then try to turn the system on, if the system still only lights the leds,but no video,try a pci card instead of agp if it still dosen't respond motherboard is shot,its's possible that the ide cable was installed backwards,shorting out the interface or the drive,The other possibility is if the memory modules were not seated properly,and shorted the module or mother board.

I have a MSI KT4 Ultra Motherboard 6590 and after


Hi! It's not uncommon for a new installation of Windows to render a PC mute. It's happened to me on several occassions, but do not dispair.
After one round or two of Windows Updates, your device will be detected as missing its drivers and they will be downloaded and installed for you.
This happens with generic motherboards which use less known built-in devices such as the sound card, the video card, etc. Should your motherboard be an Intel, Asus, or other popular name brand, you run less of a chance to get this problem.
Please run Windows Update a couple of times, or until you're satisfied your machine is up to date.
Good luck!

Hello rc53_61,
If you look at the back of your old power supply you should be able to find the information you need (if you are going to replace the current power supply with the same one). The best place to find an exact power supply is visiting the manufacturer of your computer system for example: dell, hp, compaq, etc. You can replace a power supply rather easily, the only things you need to make sure is that the plug connection is compatible with the one on your motherboard and the power supply rating is the same or even a bit higher for wattage. Check the following links to find some good quality power supplies at a reasonable rate. These sites will help you with compatibility also by putting in your motherboard information. Let me know if you need further assistance.
