Question about Abit : KV7 Socket A KT600 Motherboard

3 Answers

Msi kv6 hi there i recently rebuilt my system with a kv6 board unfortunately the board powers up as soon as i input the mains lead into the power supply it does this even without the reset and power sw leads connected to the board , sadly the board does not load the bios either it just keeps clicking and reseting itself without any bios or video output. i placed some insulation under the board between the case and board to stop any shorts there may have been, but however it does the same , i also noticed that the light on the fan flickers brighter and dimmer whilst it is in powered. but to no avail with the system booting it just resets constantly, is my board broke or is there a simple explaination for this problem , i would like advice before i buy another board just in case it could be the power supply. it does fire up the processor runs fan runs but no bois setup loads and no video output either . my board powers up with nothing but initial power supply connected to it please help.

First, Make sure you by the right motherboard screws to lift the board from the case or youll ground out and blow the power suply or the mainboard or both.

You can buy power supply testers at most computer stores for around 13 to 20 bucks and test the power supply.

The one i use for work tests the power supply and the board and shows the voltage output, it was $16.

If both test good, then try connecting everything first and then connect the power supply. Make sure the Pins for the reset and power swithc are connected correctly.

Do you know the processor to be good?

Also try reseating the RAM in the slots on the mainboard, check that the metal pins for the processor arent bent underneath.

Some boards have the wide connector and the small four pin connector and some only have just the wide one depending on the its power requirments. make sure both are connected if it requires both.

Make sure the BIOS battery isnt dead. its on the Mainboard and looks like a watch battery. Pop it off and stick your tongue on it and see if you taste a charge ( you know, like with the old 9v rectangle batteries when we where kids)

You may just have a bad board or not a power full enough power suply for that board. It could als be that.

I would reccomend you get a power supply tester. I have one that was $16 and has both the 20/24 pin and the 4 pin Mobo tester for the power supply and it will test the power supply and the it will test through the mother board to show if its getting a solid 12 volts of power. It also has a floppy and a sata and the 4 pin tester for the drives and Mobo and is worth the money. Heres the one i got at a local ma and pop store in San Antonio Texas. You should be able to buy similar at any tech store. good luck.

Why did you connect the power supply first?? I don't consider that to be a good build advisory unless you were attempting to test cpu fan only!!!!!!!!!!!.
Connect the motherboard with all necessary interface connections before attempting to connect Power Supply. However just for information, did the cpu fan run smoothly or did it herk and **** during these reboots that you mention?
If the system was running fine before the motherboard replacement and the new motherboard is designed to run with your present Power Supply, then best guess without more information is possibly a bad motherboard, it does happen but usually not without external reasons.. More information could be extremely valuable

Unfortunately modern televisions and monitors are full of electronic semiconductors of which many are likely have got destroyed along with your original power supply during the storm. A nearby lightning strike will send high voltage spikes down aerial cables as well as through socket outlets.
If you have contents insurance you should be able to claim for a new monitor.

Spilled coffie on toshiba satellite l505-es5018 powered it off let dry opened it to look at damage not much on the mainboard but it wont power on when you plug it in to ac the fan runs as soon as u plug...

Anytime where liquid is introduced to a keyboard, witch is a direct input to the main board its without question that the main board would be effected. A main board has a BIOS Basic input and output system. When a motherboard shows sign of life with errors you would here some beeping. Whilst you hear nothing but fans so yes I would put my opinion on the main board.

Coffee most likely with sugar and cream, not all like it black. If this is the case or not the case its still liquid and a laptop is powered by a battery turned on or not. Anytime liquid touches a PCB board in layman's terms Motherboard your going to have damage.

Repair would be costly as you would need a new main board,keyboard shoot you might just want to purchase a new laptop at this point given there dirty cheap now days.

Thanks for the question, I hope my answer was Helpful, please do not forget to rate and leave feedback!

Thanks and best regards,

Same problem. red light flashes 3 times, but will not turn on.


The blinking light means the controller QA01 in the AV_TERM system board is booting and driving the TIMER/REC RED LED light accordingly. This failure mode is true for many conditions, not exclusively for the main PS board PE0071. It could be caused by many things, LOW B, SEINE, AV_TERM, LCD, PROTECT, etc.

Specifically for PE0071+12VDC circuit failure, which is the most common , listen for the LINE relays SR80, SR81 coming online. If several (3) or more clicks are present when applying power to the TV set then suspect the +12, 20, +32 VDC inverter is faulty.

As a quick check, you can disconnect P807B. If the relays cycle every 1-2 seconds then is most definitely the +12VDC inverter. Check for voltage level at optocoupler Q881 pin 4 and this should not be cycling. This point is the VCC for the oscillator. Repair or replace board 75002913 as necessary.

TROUBLESHOOTING: (this is my own, not the OEM !, try at your own risk!)

  1. Check for LINE1 input voltage level at inverter on sheet [4].
  2. Check for LINE2 input voltage level at inverter on sheet [3].
  3. Check for STBY +5VDC & +25 VDC ( observe correct GND REF) page [4]of PE0071 POWER
  4. Check for +22 VDC out of regulator on page [3] out of Q822 Emitter
  5. Check P809B connector for :
  • P809B (12) POWER = 3.00 VDC (+/-0.2)
  • P809B (11) POWER_SIG = 0.00 VDC (HIGH to Power on TV)
  • P809B (10) PROTECT = 0.00 VDC
  • P809B (9) ACDETECT = 3.00 VDC (+/-0.2)
  1. Check for PFC_OUT = 368-371 VDC
  2. Check for +12, +20 & +32 VDC inverter page [5] of schematic manual.

For +12 VDC Inverter, suspect components:

Q880 STR-W6765 PSR (works really hot!!)
D884A and related switching circuit components.

Good luck,

Some wiring can be confusing such as with the board we were using. As you can see the wires mainly connect from left to right but the hard drive LED and the Key Lock wires connect from top to bottom but still show where the (-) connection is. This is where you need to pay close attention to where things actually connect to the motherboard as many boards have similar configurations.
