HI,

It may not be the video card. It could be a number of other issues that is causing the board not to boot all the way.

I don't know how computer technical you are, but it sounds like you know a thing or two about them. So here's the best way to find the problem:
Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is open up the case and take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd, hard drive or otherwise) the CPU, a graphics card (only if required) and one bank of memory. (which is not required, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. If your going to load a IDE drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it, meaning the drive (IDE or EIDE) your putting on the board is set to Master, or Cable Select if your using the cable placement method.
Now, turn it on, and you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan going. If they start, then make the next step to have the single drive be your hard drive, and see if it boots. If it boots, then great, open Bios and make sure Bios is reading the board and all things are fine with it. If so, what ever you put on next make sure it one at a time so you can identify what it doesn't like.
In the case where the CPU or power supply don't power up, it's then either one of the six elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card (if required) or the motherboard.
The next step is to replace each one of the first five, starting with the Ram Chip, put another like chip in and see the results. Then do the same thing to each of the remaining 4 components, the graphics card (if required), then the drive(cd, hard drive or otherwise), on to the CPU, and last the power supply. Hopefully something will show it's ugly way to make a change. Also, on the drive (IDE, EIDE or SATA) , try a different cable to make sure it's not that,
Now If no changes happen after all that, then I take it one step further and usually get a like (doesn't have to be exactly the same, but a board that the components can be tested on) motherboard that I can test the first four, and make sure that they really work. If after that and you have tested all of the components and they all work, then it's save to say you have a bad Board my friend. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
 
Good Luck

Mark

Is the MSI-K9N SLI-Platinum (MS-7250) capable of running an HD capable video card?


I would recommend upgrading your RAM to 2GB or even 4GB before investing into HD video card. It might be jerky. Your processor should be ok for it as it is.

This issue sounds like a possible defective power supply. Possible PSupply fan failure or PSupply is under powered for all you're devices. Re-check all internal connections.

No response after restart


This problem of yours I had with different mothboards..I must say ..there some problems to check.
first..and the most important is the video card problem..it ussualy gives theese signs of problem..scond as importance...and the most painful is teh mainboard itself,having a short circuit or some conectionion interupted.,which leads to the video cared..
and after that...the ramm dimms can be damaged and also the hdd sometimes give some kind of problems...
 However,from my experience..I say that..the mainboard is 70% of cases faulty..and 30% the video card...
try to make  a bios update...but I dont think will solve the problem...
I have a similar model...K9A Platinum with ati chipset...had lots of problems too...
