848P-A7 motherboard will not boot. Had for years

848P-A7 motherboard will not boot. Had for years and no issues and now it froze and I did a hard power down and then tried to reboot. I get nothing. The fans run and I even hear the HD. I tested the HD on another PC and it reads fine, reset the CPU (Intel P4), reset RAM, even swaped out Powerbox and still nothing. I cant even get it to boot from a CD. Ideas???

This motherboard came out about the time when the bad cap's started being put in boards in China. You might want to look a some of the caps.
on the motherboard to see if any of them look bad. A lot of the motherboards I replace have had them . This is one of the symptoms of a bad cap. You might want to check out Bad caps.net for more on this.
I don't know how familar you are with electronics but in case you need to know a cap is the thing on the board that looks like a tin can. If you see any brown stuff comming out of the top or bottom ,or if the top looks puffed up that cap is bad,and you have just found your problem. The motherboard can be repaired or replaced.

My hard disk is 80GB (IDE) when i try to connect another hard disk 320GB (SATA) the mainboard doesnot detect 320GB SATA hard disk and my pc restart every moment note: MSI 848P NEO-V


Hello samanozy ,
Some older motherboards will not support a too wide HDD whatever the interface.
Another point is to know if you have set the boot priorities in the BIOS . Your machine is maybe attempting to boot from the Sata drive .
Best regards ,

1. Along beep on a motherboard indicates something is connected backward such a a fan or a data cable to the hard drive.
If it is the hard drive cable then you must have pin 1 connector turn around and therefore the mother board is giving a warning.
2. You may have a power supply failure that is the power supply is not giving proper voltage to the mother board.
3. Your ram chip is not properly seated in the RAM slot or in backwards.
4. The CMOS battery to the mother board need to be replaced.

848p-a refuses to recognize external usb hard drive


Try installing a new USB hub using a PCI slot to get around the problem. This might be a bit of a pain, but could get you around the issue.

Swapped hard drive into new casw and now it wont boot up


This is due to a hardware conflict.
The system drivers on the hard drive are for the old mother board and devices,You will have to reinstall OS while it is install on the new mother board,The computer cannot boot to a drive that is loaded to another system unless all the devices and drive are identical.

Please rate this a fixya

Elitegroup 848P-A7 Motherboard - Will not boot


I had this exact problem with a newly bought motherboard and it turned on fan turned but the screen was black, also I noticed once it turned on it wouldn't turn off, (Am wondering if this is the case with you) the motherboard was fine as it is in the other room now working away, so dont get rid of yours just yet. Most new motherboards require additional power to the processor from the power supply, through a four pin power cable, which should be availble with the newer power supply units having (number of pins for you motherbpard power supply) + 4 (which is the 4 pin J-connector) printed on the packaging. If this is connected and you are still having problems which for me was the case, then you will have to try a different approach. Cutting to the chase, the problem I had that produced similar effects of screen being black when the motherboard was powered on, was to do with my case. It was one of those flimsy aluminium foil types. I came to this conclusion by taking my motherboard out of the case and hooking it up to the cases power supply on an insulated surface such as a cork mat. It then was working fine. So I bought a good qulaity case with a new power supply just to be sure, hooked everything up and hey presto it was fixed. It turned out that enough power couldn't get to the board as the cheap case was shorting its supply. Hope this is of some help.
