Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard

Extremely annoying problem

Hi I'm kind of a newb with hardware problems because I just built my own computer and I'm fourteen. My computer originally worked fine but a few days after I finished it it randomly shut off. It then immediately tried to start back up but it got stuck on the very first screen where it gives you the option to switch to POST mode or go into the BIOS settings. I couldn't figure this problem out for over a year and sent the processor back but that wasn't it. Then I just tried to turn it on and it worked. I didn't understand this but I didn't care. But then it happened again and I took out the processor and it worked. So I thought that had something to do with it but now it has happened again and nothing I do seems to work. I've called MSI my m/b manufacturer but they just told me to reset the BIOS and that didn't work. My computer is running an AMD Athlon 64 2.4 Ghz socket 939. You know my m/b model. I'm running a gig of RAM in two 512 megabyte sticks. I'm pretty sure they work. I've never had any problems with my hard drive so I'm pretty sure that's not it. I have a NVIDIA e-Geforce 7900 GT. That seems to be running because I am getting an output signal since I see the first screen. I have had the power supply tested and it's working fine. Can anyone help me with this? I'm at my wits end.
Thanx all

No tuner error on sony media center


The problem must be either because of Hardware or software. You are saying that you already tried installing new drivers and softwares for the tuner card and checked, but its bad luck. So it seems the hardware device may be failed. So first ensure the hardware working properly by plugging tuner card into any of your friends system. If it works properly, then it must be surely software problem. We can try installing any other version of device drivers and softwares and make it work.

Goood luck.

Bad Picture quality when AC powered


Based on your post/description, your power supply is faulty.
1. It your 24VAC adapter/power supply is the original one that came with the camera, then most likely a component failure inside. More often it is the filter capacitor.
2. If it is a replacement, then possibly the ratings are not compatible with the camera, specifically the current or power (Amps or Watts).
3. In some instances the built-in regulator might be shot since your source is 24 but your load rewuires only 12.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

DVD burning

From your cryptic description, and the extremely limited details given.
Does the DVD even show up on "My Computer"?
If it is not shown...
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on  'My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click
the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "DVD/CD-ROM drives"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'DVD drive' icon there is your problem!
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only.
Click on the faulty devise and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
