Question about MSI KT4 Ultra (MS-6590-010) Motherboard
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.
