Question about MSI K8N Neo2-F Motherboard

PC Won't Start After Initial Post

Just bought some new RAM and installed it into the PC. At first the machine booted fine, but locked up upon starting an application, so we put the old RAM back in and had no problems. We tested the RAM in another machine and it worked fine, so we put it back in the first one. Now, the PC posts but gets stuck on the Infinity screen indefinitely. We've tried every combination of old RAM, new RAM, and moving the sticks into different slots, but the machine won't boot, even with the original RAM configuration. The other machine we tested has an identical motherboard, processor and video card and has had no problems with the RAM upgrade.

Re: PC Won't Start After Initial Post

Make sure the ram is the same name of kind. if you can get the old computer on, hit the esc key and go in the bois and hit save, and restart. this should bring the computer back up. check the piggs (jumpers) on the motherboard to see if all are the same, more them around and try each one, I hope this will help you.

System not booting after ram upgrade

Sometimes it passes a poorly designed ram test, probably faulty ram, speeds always default to the slower of a pair. Some computers need all slots full. Did you buy it new? We have Re-PC for used components in the Seattle area, a great resource.

I am using Intel D865GBF board having Dual Channel DDR400/333/255 SDRAM memory support. It is of 3GHZ, 256 MB RAM. The other day I bought 1GB RAM of Transcend and tried fitting the same. But the PC never...

Yes it can support 1GB ram. Max capacity up to 4GB of ram, meaning 1GB each on each slot. Make sure that the memory that you will be installing are either DDR400, DDR333 or DDR266. It could be the RAM is faulty if the one you bought is the DDR's that I mentioned

Problem with ram

To determine if the new RAM module is faulty, remove both RAM modues and then insert only the new RAM module in the motherboard and see if it boots up.
If it boots up then there the RAM modules are incompatible with each other. Are you sure they are identical?
Take it back to the supplier and get a different one.

WinXp wont boot after the initial installation

See if it will boot off the XP CD.If it does I would think you have a corrupt boot sector. Installing windows again should fix it if it is.

ASUS A8N5X Unresponsive after RAM Upgrade

Just to verify, are you certain the new DIMMS are unbuffered? That MB does not support buffered DIMMS.

If so, try to install the old ones in A1 and B1 and the new ones in A2 and B2. See if it will boot. If so, check your system to see if the total RAM is being "seen". Comment back.

Intel D845EPI/D845GVSR MB problem

if you can get past the POST properly and see the drive size, nothing is wrong with the drive hardware. I think XP is seeing a previous boot sector install so try first to fdisk, format and system boot the drive. This should remove any boot sector "shadows".

No boot, no video

there is a jumper near the board cmos battery try to clear cmos by changing the jumper to the other position for some seconds (while power is off) so smos is clear.
if the problem still exist hook up the board spkr pins to the pannel at the board edge if a beep is heard upon starting the board then RAM is either not working or not positioned properly.
one more possibility :
CPU could be not working. sometimes currupted power supply could be causing this.
