Question about MSI K9N6PGM2-V Motherboard

2 Answers

I have a K9N6PGM2 MSI motherboard and the only way I can get it to boot and display the full size logo screen is to hit the delete button on my keyboard while it powers up. If I do not hit delete when I start the computer, everything powers up but the light on the monitor will flash orange and nothing is displayed. I've considered it may be some settings in my bios or may have something to do with my power supply.

If you do not see the windows logo screen you might have some bad settings in you BIOS for your video card. Trying adjusting the settings one at a time and rebooting till resolved.
If this does not fix the issue and the video card is built in to the mother board it could be other BIOS settings not directly related to video like memory settings.

This is more likely to do with the monitor than the computer.
Going into that specific graphics mode allows the monitor to power up properly and allow the now failing capacitors to settle enough to run it up into the other modes.
Try another monitor on your system, and if it reacts normally without having to hit the delete key, then we have to look at repairing the monitor.

Here's some tips on repairing the monitor if you have to. (if it's not the monitor, it's the video card, and you may need to look at replacing that...if you are using the onboard video, consider getting a video card, or look for bad caps on the motherboard - same as replacing bad caps in the monitor)

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Good day i have problem with my motherboard msi k9n6pgm2 it turn on but no display i disconnect all peripheral dvd rom, hdd,pci e video card.... no beep at all plss....


Since you mentioned that you tried to remove everything, it's possible that your monitor is defective.
Try testing another monitor to your pc to prove what is wrong.

Hope it helps.

No display

first thing, make sure there is a speaker so you can hear the beep codes, those are critical, and then configure your computer with the least amount of prepherals possible, one ram module, the cpu,and the integrated video card, if no integrated, then only one video card, try pulling out all ram modules and listen for a beep code, they can be very quiet, lastly stalk the motherboard for burnmarks, you could have a fried board, especially if you disconnected something while it was on, or within 15 seconds of disconnecting power...
