Can not power-on

Good day,,, I have a problem in my MSI PM8M-V motherboard. Tha problem occur after Ireset the CMOS using jumper setting JBAT1. the default setting (normal) is at pin1-2, I pullout the jumper & placed it on [in 2-3 to clear the CMOS, and after a second I placed it back to pin1-2(normal). Then I push the power button and i was astonished to note that the power doesn't start. And so I checked the power supply, power switch and all... but it's all OK. Please help me... is my motherboard completely bad? or still some keystroke in the keyboard to reset or something? or is it possible to restore or repair my motherboard using LAN card? or shall we say remote assistance repair using other computer?. Thank you so much...

If you Motherboard was working initialy then there should be no problems once you replace the jumper to the correct (normal) cmos setting, ensure that this is done correctly because this could be you problem. if the jumper is in the correct position and all you other hard ware is functioning correctly and still your motherboard won't power up then check that you memory module(s) are installed correctly as well as that they and the processor chip are all functioning correctly. if you have checked all these and you still have a problem then you will have you replace your motherboard as it could be burnt or damaged.

To reset the motherboard: set the dipswitches at OC_SW1 to ON-OFF-ON, then clear the CMOS Ram by setting the jumper at JBAT1 to pins 2&3 while the power is OFF. Wait fifeteen seconds,Then return the jumper to pins 1&2 and turn the power on. This will re-set you to the factory defaults. You will need to enter the BIOS and re-configure your hard disk.

Display on motherboard reads FF

THat is the "power on and first initialize CPU" halt code. Most often, if this error occurs, you have a bad CPU. You should also check the JBAT1 jumper to be sure it is installed and on the correct pins. If the CMOS is being held reset or does not have its power source the system cannnot initialize the CPU.

Where is jumper reset

The reset jumper is labelled JBAT1 (circled in red below). Pins 1+2 are jumpered/shorted right now, just turn the machine off, move the jumper over to short pins 2+3, wait 5-10 seconds, move it back to pins 1+2 and fire it back up. Have fun!

Download the manual for you're MSI PM8M-V motherboard from MSI;
You will need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe;
Open manual to page 9. See Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2. There is no need to connect JFP2's Power LED jumper, this is completed at JFP1. Each wire jumper coming from the case will have one wire color in common with all connectors except the speaker jumper. That common colored wire will be use as negative.
The speaker wire commonly as red is positive and black is negative.

I am getting 1 long beep and then 6 short ones

Hi canturob,
When a system reports a check sum error the bios is telling you the information stored from the last working boot does not match the current settings stored in the bios. Please power down your MSI system, unplug the power cord. Open the case & clear the bios. Location of JBAT1 on page 3 in manual.
Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1 page 10 in the manual. Remove the battery/cmos. Check it's voltage with a volt meter. It should test to 3volts DC. Anything less & the battery needs to be replaced.
While in the case re-check all data cables & power cables for good connection.
The MSI board uses the Award bios. Your current beep code of 1 long & six short is not a common beep code for the Award bios. See bios beep codes here:

If the battery checks out ok, you may need to update the bios. Go to MSI:
To update your MSI bios (Option only if bios clear fails to resolves the check sum issue).

Good luck canturob!
