Question about MSI P4M890M-L Motherboard

2 Answers

I have an MSI p4m890m computer that was used as a server then given to me when it was no longer needed. My problem is when I plug it in, the power button lights up, but nothing else happens, and I cannot get it to turn on, nor can I get the light to do anything but stay steady. The computer is fully assembled with no loose connections inside or out.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Which is the best DDR2 RAM to use on this board(MSI P4M890)? Running Win XP Home?

hello ifuwrnot

your motherboard spec says only DDR II 400 or 533Mhz RAM. running at 1.8V.

some boards works even with higher ram but run only at the speed they can reed. so it is basically pointless buying higher frequency RAM for this board.

good luck
