MSI K9N6GM MotherBoard Install

Just got a new mobo (MSI K9N6GM), AMD athlonn 64x2 dial core 4600, 1g ram, 300w power supply. When I load the system with my new v card ( nvidia geforce 6500 it shows up with a white screen with horizontal lines through it that slowly disappear. The computer never posts (beeps). I unplugged the video card and used the standard one that was built into the mobo and my monitor just flashes NO SIGNAL FOUND. The harddrive works fine (we tested in another comp), just not sure what to do at this point. Any ideas?

Amd athlone 64x2 4200


Have you check to see if the 4200 is compatible with your motherboard? What are you installing the CPU in? The Make, Model of Computer? The Motherboard? Will you need more power? Another fan?

Is not the monitor, its the graphics driver for the windows. you can boot it in safe mode and try to remove the drivers but that seldom works.. The solution is to reformat it again this time DO NOT INSTALL THE GRAPHICS DRIVERS let the system use the windows default.

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

First time I heard that But Maybe your board needs a bios update which I personally wouldn't do unless you really know what your doing. I would buy better ram and more of it and just use the two slots that work.

Acer Aspire E360, Need new Motherboard, cpu and powersupply


If you're going to replace the Mobo, Processor, and PSU, you may as well as replace the computer case, also.

Another $50 USD will buy you a decent computer case.

(Seen this? http://www.directron.com/cs888uvbl.html )

You can reuse your optical drive/s.

Mobo? Are you going to stick with AMD processors like what is used in your computer now, or are you going to go Intel?

AMD hardware is cheaper price wise, but not quality wise. Myself I prefer Intel.
Just a personal preference.

Dual core processor with DDR Sdram ram memory?
You're not going to like this answer, but this = No, for Intel processors.
DDR2 Sdram for dual core processors.

There are some older AMD processor based motherboards that do utilize DDR Sdram, and dual core processors.

It is IMHO this is going backwards.
Why?
Because using DDR Sdram will cause a 'bottleneck' of information. The dual core processor will be bottlenecked, by the slower DDR Sdram ram memory.

Also, I would imagine you would like to be able to buy a dual core processor now, and be able to use a Quad Core processor in the future, on that same motherboard.

Again, I'm more towards Intel than AMD, so forgive me if I'm talking to an AMD man.

I go for the 'Best Bang for the Buck' theory.
More performance for lesser money spent.

It is for the above reasons that I would recommend an XFX nForce 750i SLI Extreme mobo.
Why?

1) Supports Intel Pentium 4 processors, (With an 800MHz FSB, and fit into an LGA 775 processor socket), all the way up to an Intel Core2 Quad.

(Supports Intel - Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, and Core2 Extreme processors)

Supports Intel processors utilizing the 45nm architecture, and up to a 1333MHz FSB. (800MHz, 1066MHz, or 1333MHz)

2) Supports DDR2 Sdram at either 800MHz, or 1066MHz. (PC2-6400 and PC2-8500 respectively)

4GB's with a 32bit operating system, 8GB's with a 64bit O/S.

(A 32bit operating system has it's limitations. Only 3.2 to 3.5GB's, will be recognized of that 4GB's of ram memory)

3) Has Two PCI-Express x16 graphics slots, that use the PCI Express 2.0 technology. You can install two graphics cards, that utilize the SLI technology. (Scalable Link Interface)

With this motherboard, when you use two graphics cards, BOTH will operate at 16X.
Not 16X for one, and 8X for the other, like some motherboards.
(Things they don't tell you)

(Information about the Nvidia nForce 750i chipset, from Nvidia.com,

http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_nforce_750i_sli_us.html

Click on the Specifications tab)

Has 4 SATA headers on the motherboard, that utilize the SATA 3.0Gigabit per Second technology. (3.0Gb/s)

4) The MOSFET has a heatsink on it, as well as the Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip. Plus there is a heatpipe in-between these heatsinks.
Helps keep everything nice, and cool!

5) Price is $70

2GB's of decent DDR2 Sdram at 800MHz, (PC2-6400), will set you back about $50.

You can buy a Motherboard/CPU combo with the Intel Core2 Duo E7500, for $190 USD.

(Intel Core2 Duo E7500:

Two processor cores operating at 2.93GHz Each.
3MB's of L2 cache.
1066MHz FSB
Based on the Wolfdale Core.

For the power supply, I would recommend an OCZ StealthXStream 600 Watt.
Why?

Because if you keep the temperature of this PSU at 118 degrees Fahrenheit, (47.9 degrees Celsius), it can reliably put out 728.8 Watts.

(Remember, 80 percent of the rated maximum wattage, is the figure you should go by.
80 percent of the rated maximum wattage, when the PSU is operating at a 100 percent load)

Has Four 12 Volts power rails. EACH 12 Volt rail is capable of handling 18 Amps.
Total is 72 AMP's!

Has all the power cables you will need.
Has a 120mm fan.
A larger fan means it will turn slower, and still produce more air flow.
Also will make less noise. (Unless you are running an intense game at high settings. You won't hear it anyway, because of the game!)

Just my thoughts. If this is not what you had in mind, please state so in a comment.

(Additional comment. I think utilizing two graphics cards in an SLI configuration, is redundant. Basing this statement on price versus performance.

Again with the 'Best Bang for the Buck, theory, but I would recommend an EVGA Geforce GTX 260 Core 216 graphics card.

Graphics performance is VERY close to an Nvidia Geforce GTX 280, but at way less cost)

Gateway 5228 wont boot no lights on keyboard


does it load the bios screen? Does it get to the windows load screens if it does go to the bios screen? Does the computer power on at all?

Sometimes what happens is the bios chip can be faulty or die and this will have to be replaced to fix the issue. If the computer is not powering on then it is more than likely a power supply issue.

(just in case, you might want to make sure that all of the adapters that come from the power supply are connected to the motherboard as well)

Hi,
Yes of course you can put an AMD Athlon 64 dual core in that motherboard as the socket type is AM2.

Excellent video card, good for gamers.

Concluding: It is a great power computer with a too small hard drive. Still a bargain for this price, ask if they can upgrade hard disk.

MSI K9N6GM MotherBoard Install


you could have a faulty power supply, or something in the motherboard settings could be set to switch the pc off after so many minutes/hours. or you may have a faulty connection which short-circuits in the motherboard or somewhere in the pc, casuing the pc to switch off as a safety feature. this is NOT what it actually is, this is a SUGGESTION.
