Boot into your bios when you are first turning on the computer(Press Del while the Press DEL to enter SETUP message displays on screen after powering on the computer.) and look and see if you have "only use on-board graphics" set. Sometimes you have to click the arrow and choose"use graphics card" instead of the system only using your on-board graphics.

SOURCE: MS 6712 motherboard

check the cables, and if all connection pins are on the drives or on the motherboard. Not all the needed communication routs between the drives and the motherboard are working....
U can also try another IDE slot (if more than 1)
If all checks ok, try a BIOS reset... (but most probably is just the cables ...)

SOURCE: Computer will not turn on

The only way you can see if it the motherboard or the card is to try them in different machines I.Eputting the card in a buddys pc and try another AGP card on your board. I am glad that we were able to figure out the problem

SOURCE: MSI P6N Platinum not booting up

Have you plugged in the additional power supply connectors to this board at JPW1 (under the heatpipes towards the rear connector panel)? If not then you need an 8 pin 12V power supply from your PSU to this connector (This is what powers your CPU). If you don't have an 8 pin connector, you can get away with a standard 4 pin. It will only fit in one way, so you'll know.
It may sound like a daft solution, but you'd be amazed how many people forget to plug this connector in on this and similar boards.

SOURCE: "Memory Turbo Card must be installed with either DDR2 or DDR3"!

It is not DDR2 or DDR3, it is new memory technology developed by Intel which is a flash memory module which reduces the time it takes for a computer to power up, access programs, and write data to the hard drive.

The drivers can be found at MSIs website. Click on Download tab, then Driver and it will list all the SATA, realtek drivers available once you chose your OS.

You'd have to go to the following URL:

MSI P965 Pt Continually re-boots on start-up


You don't say exactly at what point in the boot sequence the system crashed and restarts. Many things could be at work here. You say you are using the HDD from the previous system. Did you swap this drive straight out and are still using the OS load from the previous system? Windows loads drivers at startup based upon the hardware installed. If you are using and old WIndows load with a new mainboard, this could be the entire cause of your crashes. YOu may be able to get to SAGE mode and remove the old drivers and try to restart the system, but from experience I will tell you that to get the best results when installing a new mainboard, you should reload the OS from the original OS disk, and then load the new mainboard drivers.

I have an OEM PC with mainboard MSI p965 Neo Today it is not working (no startup screen, no ugly beep messages etc).. I have only a blank screen..


First of all test the power source on its own. Good? Take out the board of the case and keep on it just the video card and try to boot into the BIOS. No good? Try to boot using another video card, then another memory sticks and finally another processor. If none of them had an effect then the motherboard is dead, replace it.

Network Connections are Gone!


I would check in device manager (control panel) and see if the network card is listed. It probably has a yellow exclamation point next to it.
If there is an exclamation point there, then right click the card and click uninstall.
Next, using your wifi to access the internet, download the latest network card driver from the PC vendor website / Motherboard vendor site / discrete network card site.
Install the network card driver and you should be back in business.

SATA configuration for MSI P965 Neo --- JMicron hell!


Hi,
Once you have loaded your main board drivers,configuration should be pretty much automatic.Personnally,I have my dvd drive on the standard IDE ribbon cable header,and 2 SATA HDD.One on each SATA header.After loading The mainboard Drivers,Windows did the rest.I haven't found any need to mess around with any BIOS settings at all.
I currently am using a Biostar P4M900 board,but I have dealt with MSI before,and they are pretty much the same deal.
