Question about MSI 915P NEO2 PLATINUM 915P LGA775 800FSB 4DDR2 AUD+GBE PATA RAID SATA (7028030020050) Motherboard
1..Checked main atx plug 24pin and 4 pin power plug. AOK
2..Checked, removed, replaced , 2 sticks of ram AOK
3..Checked, wiring to HD led,PSW + led AOK
4..Disconected Power Plugs and Ribbions to 3 Hard-Drives plus SATA Drives
After checking all of the above, system still did not start or boot up, however intermittenly when you press the switch the cpu fan would spin then stop.
Finally I changed the PSU from another machine that was working, and Yes it booted up and I was able to do whatever. UNTILL 5 hrs later
same problem again.I'am at a loss , where do I go from here. ?
You seem to have a lot of hardware in there, so trying to remove some items to lighten the Power Load was a good idea - but maybe too late.
Check your Power Supply - I suspect that you will need around 550 Watts or more. If you can put in another Power Supply (after disconnecting as many drives etc as you can) see if the problem re-occurs.
If it does not, then your Power Supply is failing and will need to be replaced (with a 550 Watt or above PS Unit). I would personnally think that a 700 Watt unit would be ideal if it were my machine.
Yeah, I know you said you replaced the Power Supply but didn't say if everything was reconnected nor what size Power Supply Unit you put in.
