My MSI P6NGM-based system stopped working. On

My MSI P6NGM-based system stopped working.--
Wife turned off the power switch, and now the old Hard Drive has a capacity of ZERO :-).

I attempted to install a new HDD--

On startup, I get AMI BIOS error code of 2 short beeps--Parity problem too?? HOWEVER, I am able to boot from my Linux/Ubuntu 9.04 DVD. I was able to format a new SATA HDD in Ubuntu. When running from the DVD, I can browse the new HDD, and copy files from it. However, it will not boot from the Hard drive.

Any ideas? Might my BIOS be corrupted?

Hi,

Parity is a memory ( Ram problem ) try removing 1 Stick. or changing it into another slot. if you suspect Bios. remove power cable. locate The CMOS Battery. remove for 10-15 seconds, And replace it. this will reset the bios to it,s default settings. you,ll know if your asked on boot-up to run setup to change time/date.

If i on it will off after 30minutes i put all the thermal paste in the processor and i fix also the heat sink but still it will off


I had experienced that also i put thermal paste on cpu and it still doesn't anything new it still suddenly turn off! What I did is, I replaced the motherboard and it solved the problem. Based on my experience that problem will be fixed if you going to replace your motherboard with a new one. Have a nice day!

My Motherboard fails todetect my WD 320oAAKS SAta Drive. I'm Forced to open the system case and hold the data cable until th computer boots up The Motherboard is a P6ngm from MSI.


If holding the cable allows it to detect the drive I would have to say you are getting a bad connection.
Try plugging into another sata connection on the motherboard, if that does not work try another cable, if that does not work it only leaves the hard drive. If it is still under warranty you can try to return it to the manufacturer for repair but be sure to back up all your data because there is an excellent chance they will just send you back a refurbished drive.

Hello the homepage is here:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/P6NGM-FD.html#/?div=Driver&os=XP%2032

if it does not help to upgrade the drivers
Disable it in the device manager
It also depends how new your current windows is
This failure comes often when you upgrade your bios
and running a old windows.

Good luck

MSI P6NGM won't BOOT


You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!

MSI P6NGM Issues


I would put the old ram back in, and then reset the bios by following the instructions in the motherboard manual. (usually with putting a jumper on some pins)
