Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard

3 Answers

Starting computer When I press start button from shutdown mode, it wouldn't start right away. I disconnect power cable, toggle the switch between ON/OFF, while pressing start button. After several such attempts, it starts, but produces two loud and long beeps with constant sound in the background. My friend told me to shut it down right away.

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    No, it doesn't show anything unusual. Just loading. But after it's loaded, it shows in the bottom bar that the network cable (cat 5) is disconnected, while the cable was connected and I was able to go on-line. And the "background" sound (not very loud, but constant) is always on.

    Thanks,
    Andrey

    Hermit, 1st of all, thank you for your help.
    I tried other keyboard. Didn't work. Let me tell you how it works.
    First, the front button wouldn't start the computer. After several presses, it would start, but turn itself Off within 3-5 sec. After that the button freezes again, and you had to hit it several times before it starts the computer. Then sometimes it would turn Off again in about 5-10 sec, sometimes not. All this is accompanied with sound coming from monitor. Yesterday I found a small fan on the MB which seemed to be malfunctioning. It rotated unevenly and seemed to cause tripping of computer. I took it off and cleaned. Now it's working OK and the computer doesn't trip. But the buzzing sound's still there. It's steady, but becomes louder for 3-5 sec at every step of booting. First, when computer starts identifying its hardware, then it gives a even louder sound when it starts loading Windows, and the most loud sound when it opens Windows (displays Window welcome screen). Between these three steps it clicks (like in a bad phone communication) and blackens the screen for about 1 sec. After that it works OK (at one point when I started it, the screen was greenish). After the computer is shut down, the monitor gives one more louder sound and then goes to standby. Oh yes, and I found three files in quarantine, infected by Trojan Horse.
    I think I gave you the whole picture. Thanks again for the help.

    Hermit, I don't know if you received my comment, because I hit the "Fix it" button and everything disappeared. I thank you very much for your help. Your help really helped. I replaced the monitor and now it works fine. I also checked the old monitor on another computer and it did the same things. So the problem is the bad monitor.
    Thank you again.

Good for you, Adrey! Am glad you found the goblin finally. See you around, okay.

Your power and data system need inspection inside the MoBo. Hardware problems produce warning beeps, especially RAM and VIDEO. Check these first to make sure they are in slots.

Does it show anything on the screen while it's beeping??????

Please provide more information and come back

    Let's start with your keyboard. If windows is running and a constant sound persists, it could vey well be a stuck key on yoour keyborad. Try a different keyboad or unplug the keyboard after the computer boots.



    The network diconnect sign can be ignoored if you can get online, but if you can't, try replacing your network cable terminating clip--the one that goes into the network card. Also check the other end coming out of the switch or wall socket.



    Let us know, okay

    Hey, Adrey,



    Your computer sounds like a Harry Potter scene! (Kidding :) I want to say that that thing has more than one problem. It is one of those where I would disconnect things one by one and reconect backward to isolate the problems. Let's try this,ok



    1. Once it's booted and wailing, turn off the monitor that you say wails loudly. Does the sound stop?



    2. Remove the sound card and speakers, then restart the computer. Any sounds?.

    3. Disconnect the HDD and CD Drive and turn the PC on, let the fan run for a minute. Any sounds?

    4. If you have a different monitor, try it and see the diffrence.

    5. Remove the cooling fan from the processor and turn PC on for only 30 seconds. Any sounds? Don't keep it on without the fan too long thou.



    This process of unplaugging parts you are suspecting are faulty will give you a basic idea of where the sounds are coming from,



    Your MoBo may be having a problem, like getting ready to die, or has a short somewhere.



    Your power supply is also suspect, and could cause variable power relay and cause Harry Potter type events.



    Let's keep drilling down, okay.

    How to shut down dell inspiron 530 computer - the button only takes computer to sleep mode


    I assume you use Windows Vista.....
    In vista the default action of the power button is configured to sleep mode..
    So to shutdown the PC you can press "Start - right arrow - right arrow - right arrow - Enter", or you can navigate to the same using the mouse & selecting shutdown from the list besides the lock icon.
    You can also change the power button configuration this way goto " Start-Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Power options-change plan settings (under the current plan you are using) - change advanced power settings - Power buttons and lid - Start menu power button" click on settings and select shutdown, apply & save the settings and close this window.
    Now you can just click the power button to shutdown your computer.

    My computer will not recognize it.


    I would start with attempting to reset the iPod to get it to connect to the computer. If that does not work, attempt to force it into disc mode. And if all else fails try another USB port on your computer or a friends computer. If it does not work try a different cable with your iPod to ensure that it is not just a cable connection :) Below is a step by step on resetting an iPod as well as disc mode just in case you need the information :)
    Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
    When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.


    --------------------------------------------------

    Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
    Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
    If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
