Question about MSI 865PE Neo2-V Motherboard

Power for a split second

Hello. I just transferred my mobo/cpu combo into another case with the case and the power supply being the only new additions of hardware. Now my computer only powers on for a split second and then shuts off- no display or anything. the cpu fan starts up and then stops and the power LED for the case turns on for just a moment and shuts off again.

    the motherboard was being shorted by touching metal on the case. i took out the pci/agp components, put them back in and reseated the motherboard. All is well.

Dear migregorio

I think that your problem is either to do with the power supply, not putting out the same amount of power as your previous PSU, so therefore i reckon to start checking your power supply ratings and usage ratings on both PSUs and then evaluate whether the new one is the right one for your machine, it could be beneficial to try using your previous power supply in the case that you have transferred the components into. If this still has the same effect as what you are getting then i would guess that you have either a short circuit from the motherboard to the chassis, or your PSU is not grounded, and therefore an open or incomplete circuit is formed. This will explain why you only receive power for a split second.

I hope that this information helps you for now, and if not, please mail me back here and i will endeavour to respond to you ASAP.

Won't boot. mobo power lite is on. fans power up for split second. have check everything. cpu is new. checked ram. all devices. No lose connections. reseated cpu twice.


It sounds like a problem with the power supply. Do you have another one you can test with? You could also purchase a power supply tester.

Here is a link to the power supply testers on Amazon. There are all sorts of prices and features so it really is a personal preference which one you get.

I'am working on ASUS P5PE-VM mobo, I removed the memory, video card and isolate the mobo away from the casing so no short circuit may occur during test. I plugged in the power supply and the front switch...


HI,
Clear CMOS or remove CMOS battery, Press the on off switch for 30 seconds.
Now go to BIOS setup,and set bios fail save default,and press F10>enter.If the problem same change the RAM if you have a spare.

Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.

tyan i5400xt.. to test for ground.. pull the board from the chassis and test with a different known good power supply

if the boot works... then you have a power supply issue...

does the board have a post code lighted signal ???

if so.. a bad power supply should goto FF error code

verify you have enough power on the cpu rail with your power supply specifications also

be sure you have all cables 4 pin 8 pin and 20/24 pin connections done correctly.. lastestly check if the board is touching the chassis edge anywhere... could cause a ground

also take and loosen all the MB screws from the chassis.. just let it hang there this will test the grounds needs the screw connections

Wont post and buzzing noise


Don't mean to butt in here but I'll bet the 4 pin_ATX 12v connector is not connected to the board. That 4 pin_ATX 12v connector give's the CPU it's power. Without is the system will not boot. Some boards will give off that weird sound you are hearing.

Computer will power up for three seconds then shut down


Had the same problem on a few motherboards, check your capacitors very closely. If they are rounded or split on top they are bad. You can change the capacitors with new ones to fix your problem but it often ends up costing as much as buying a new board.

Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
