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.

http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

The fault could be the power supply, the ram modules, or a faulty setting of a jumper, on the mainboard, or the graphic card.

Do you get the "blue screen of death" ???

Any picture on screen with fault code ???

One long beep, is the ram modules failing.

Try to remove the ram modules, and insert one, and try to boot.

Best of luck

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 the clear bios jumper in my mis k9n6pgm-FI motherboard


JBAT1 is right next to the SATA2 connector.

Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1
There is a CMOS RAM on board that has a power from external battery to keep the data of system
configuration. With the CMOS RAM, the system automatically boot OS every time it is turned on. If you
use the JBAT1 (Clear CMOS Jumper) to clear data. Follow the instructions below to clear the
data:

You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off. Then return to 1-2 pin position.
Avoid clearing the CMOS while the system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

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!

I NEED DRAWING FOR THE FRONT PANEL CONNECTION


Download the manual for you're MSI PM8M-V motherboard from MSI; http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=PM8M-V&table=download
You will need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
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.

Cannot post after overclock


On the motherboard look for a jumper labeled JBAT1. it should currently be jumpered across 1 and 2. Witht the power off move the jumper to cover 2 and 3. Wait 1 minute. Then move it back to cover 1 and 2. DO NOT TURN THE POWER ON UNTIL IT IS JUMPERED TO CROSS 1 AND 2.

THis will clear the BIOS and you should be back to original settings.

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: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the battery checks out ok, you may need to update the bios. Go to MSI: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=utility&maincat_no=1&prod_no=205
To update your MSI bios (Option only if bios clear fails to resolves the check sum issue).

Good luck canturob!
