Question about MSI MS-1036 Barebone

Cause of MS-1036 loss of power?

Hi my MS-1036 suddenly lost power and will not power on again. It didnt shutdown it seem to just dissappear. I have checked the AC Adaptor on a identical model and that works fine. Does anyone know what would be the next steps to take to find the problem. It seems to be as if something has immediately failed inside the system and the laptop switched straight off without any errors or warnings. Does anyone know where i can acquire a disassembly guide for the MS-1036. Any help is very much appreciated

Re: Cause of MS-1036 loss of power?

Try taking the battery out and see if it will fire up just with the adapter. Please don't take your unit apart unless you have some experience in this procedure.

Computer shutdown halfway operating

More than likely your laptop is overheating and it is shutting down to protect itself.

Check and make sure your air vent is clean and unobstructed. Get a can of compressed air and blow through it to clear out any debris.

Worse case scenario is it could be your Nvidia chip that is malfunctioning and causing the laptop to shutdown also. There is a known issue with the older Nvidia chips that they would get overheated and causing the solder joints to crack and separate from the motherboard. This would cause the system to shut down and can't start up. Only way to fix that particular issue is by replacing the motherboard unfortunately.

Hey... I assembled my pc two weeks back... It worked fine dat time... But suddenly yday the display wont show up.... Just pitch black on the monitor.... The system has power, cpu fan is running......

There is a chance the motherboard is defective. If you're using an onboard graphics controller and not getting any video, that is probably the issue.

I have had RAM cause a similar problem to this. Remove and reseat the RAM and try again. If this problem continues, I would RMA the motherboard.

Hope this helps!

Motherboard loops when starting. Will not boot up . Gets to Windows screen and then starts all over again

Test your PSU or replace it

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

hope this helps

I have a HP DV4 model and i took it to germany, it worked fine for the last two months but then a 2 weeks later i wa downloading something and i lfet on, an or so later i see the laptop is suddenly off, i...

You've overloaded and busted the PSU. The voltages are different in different countries and you should use a voltage stabilizer which you haven't. You need to get the warranty out as it can be expensive to replace and fit in a shop.

Computer restarts on shutdown

If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.

  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
Thanks & Regards

Unlock Code for access to Computer

Resetting the CMOS can be achieved via removing the 'button cell' battery for 10+ minutes OR enabling a jumper (pin connector) on the motherboard, this will clear the PCs setup configuration and require you to reset the parameters.

Re-installing windows will only effect the OS (software) environment, if your question is HOW to bypass a users/administrators password... I shall respectfully decline that information.

Unable to print document 1" top,bottom,andleft and right. Font very small. Margin needs to be aligned with computer

and Hi again,

For some unknown reason(s) our Live Session was cut. Any development(s)?

Pls, in MS Word, have you tried clicking on File and then Print Preview? Would you so kind as to check if the way the document is shown is the same way the document was printed?

If yes, was the right margin as you would want it to be? otherwise, have you checked on the settings of the MS Word document specifically the right indent as shown below in red circle?
Would appreciate if you can post back any developments or even the lack of it.

MS-1036 doesnt sense power cord attached

You hit exactly on the head with don't move the unit when plugged in - there are many people with the MS-1036 having this problem if you search the web. MSI does cover the bare-bone itself, however this falls into that damaged not defective area. Many shops would replace the entire board, making it costly as looks you had done once already. Good idea is to look to Asus 17" bare-bone and move your items over, much better made. Citrus Micro - see you worked with them, so have I, always had good luck with them, they make great contact and sometimes too honest, prices are great to - like any etail store with returns, manufacturer warranty tells most etail stores how they are to handle things. Could be why you see them getting rid of selling MSI products? Looks like you found the best idea, take to walk in repair shop - hard to beat that or again, buy new bare-bone.
