Question about MSI K9VGM-V Motherboard
This particular symptom may reflect a problem with any number of components. A bad CPU or video card, for instance, may prevent the computer from booting properly. Often the number of beeps will clue you in to the offending hardware. Check your system or your motherboard manuals' troubleshooting sections for a list of beep codes.
If the beep codes indicate a memory problem, make sure all memory is properly seated and secure. If you've recently added new memory, make sure it's compatible with your system. You may also want to try cleaning the pins on each module and each socket on the motherboard.
If you have multiple memory modules, try to isolate any bad modules by removing all but one module and booting the system. If the system boots, turn it off, replace the module with another and boot the system again. When the computer refuses to boot, you've found your problem module.
Again, you may want to reorder your memory modules. Faster modules in the DIMM0 slot can cause a problem on some systems.
