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

Upgraded motherboard and windows 7 in restore during startup

If you put in a hard drive that already had an OS on it and such, it won't work since the new computer has different parts from the last. You will have to buy Windows 7, or obtain windows through some method of your choice and do a clean install. Sorry buddy.

I have no audio hardware, and i can heard the sound on my computer desktop, I hope with this short description you can give me a solution for this kinds of problem. thank you very much.

If you can hear sounds then you have an audio card in your computer. If you do not see a audio card in an expansion slot then the audio chip is built-in on the motherboard.

Hi I have had my computer about 1 year now, I built it my self but now I have a booting problem. When I turn my computer on it dose'nt evan show the splash screen. So i turned it on and left it for about...

Your motherboard is apparantly having trouble with some hardware in your system. Try to remove as much as possible connected devices, including sound cards, firewire cards, secondary graphics cards etc. Try booting now.
Start adding devices, one by one, until the PC doesn't boot anymore. Obviously, there is something worng with that device. Try connecting it to another system, see if it works. If so, try updating your motherboard BIOS and reconnecting the device. If that doesn't help either, you're kind of out of options. That device is not compatible with that system. Period.
If the device fails in the other PC as well, it's probably broken. I'd return it for warranty even if it will function with the updated BIOS anyway. It worked with the older version before, so something must be broken, even if it appears to function without trouble.

I hope this solves your problem,

PS: Becuase you said you built the system yourself, I trust you can perform all the tasks I described. If not, please contact me.

Not show green color

Is this a desktop PC or a laptop?

If it's a desktop with a seperate monitor then you should first try a different VGA cable if you'rs is removable (some are integrated into the monitor) to see if it sync's up with all 3 colors first, alternatively you can also try to jiggle the cable at the connector on the back of the PC and see if you get the full color of your display and also make sure the thumb-screws are "snug" - not overly tight at the connector to your computer.

If neither of these work then the simplest thing to do it to test the monitor on another PC to see if it works properly on another computer or not, if it does then you problem is going to most likely be with your video card, then there's 2 possibilities there.

1) If you have a seperate video display card you'll need to swap it with another one to see if your problem is resolved.

2) If you have integrated VGA built-in on your motherboard then you'll need to get a video card that's appropriate for your bus type, AGP, PCI-x etc and then disable your on-board video controller in the computer's BIOS.

It would be extremely helpful if you'd at least mention what kind of computer you have so as to eliminate a lot of guessing and to help you get to the specific cause of your problem, this is all just common troubleshooting for a desktop PC and monitor - not a laptop - unless you're using an external display connected to a laptop - again, I don't have a clue as to what kind of setup you have.

If I can be of any further help just let me know.

My pc HAVE no sound bcoz there is no sound card...can u help me to find it..


What you have to do is to see whether your sound card is built-in in your PC Motherboard or not. If not then you can buy a new sound card from Computer Shop.

If you have a Sound Card built-in in your Motherboard then what you have to do is to enable it from Bios. Once you have enabled it you will see that your system will detect a new hardware and will install it automatically.

Any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards,
