Question about MSI K8N Neo4-F Motherboard

K8N Neo4 and Vista

Hey there.

After I had installed Vista Home Premium my computer´s complete shut down process had worsen. With XP pro it was about 30 secounds but now it is around 10 minutes.
When I press "Shut Down" Vista turn it self off in less than 30 secounds but the cpu fan stays turned on for the rest of the time. What is also new is that I bought a new processor, I had Amd 64 3500+ 2.2 GHz, but now I have Amd 64 Dual Core 4200+ 2.2 GHz and I also have 4 GB ram.

Does any one have idea what can be wrong or have a suggestion what I might be able to do to fix that.

Sincerely
Mr. Saemundsson

It usually means that there is a piece of hardware or a program that it is having trouble closing. Try defragging the drive some times that can help things quite a bit. Also make sure you have the latest drivers fro all your hardware.

Controller MSI K8N Neo4 does not work


SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND CLEAR CMOS BY RESETTING JUMPER ON MOTHERBOARD AND THEN RETURN JUMPER TO NORMAL POSITION OR USE RESET BUTTON. UNPLUG ALL HDD SATA CONNECTORS FROM HDD. BOOT COMPUTER TO BIOS. MAKE SURE ENABLE ALL SATA IS ENABLED, PRESS F10 AND EXIT.YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN. NOW REATTACH SATA HDD AND CONNECTORS AND BOOT TO BIOS AGAIN. NOW HIT F10 AND LET COMPUTER RESTART AND LOAD INTO THE OS. LOGON AND CHECK DEVICE MANAGER..SHOULD BE THERE. IF NOT CHECK MOTHER BOARD WEB SITE FOR BIOS UPDATE. IF BIOS UPDATE DOESN'T DO THE TRICK, SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT THE IDE DRIVE, UNLESS IT CONTAINS YOUR OS. TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.

Vista Home Premium locks up on a load


How long do you wait before you determine it is locked up? Vista uses minimum graphics to facilitate a faster install. It may seem like nothing is going on when Vista is loading in the background. If it is locking up try a reinstall. Are you upgrading or going a new install?

Cannot find drivers, especially integrated LAN support


Hello there.


Please click here to see the webpage with the drivers. Your ethernet uses NVIDIA nForce4 System Drivers so thats the one to click, make sure to choose 'Vista' instead of 'XP'

Notice there are other drivers on the website too. For example sound.

Hope this helps.
