Is it possible to use intel duel core E5400 processor with MSI B75MA-P45 Motherboard? or any other motherboard support DDR3?

Hello here is the cpu list, for the asus board:

Here is the msi site:

Your current cpu will not fit on the msi board, because it is a different socket.

The asus board has socket LGA 775, and the msi board has socket 1155.

You have to buy a new cpu for the msi board, to make it work.

Here is the cpu list:

If you want to keep the socket 775, you probably have to find a used mainboard, because this socket type is phased out.

Some online stores still have this mainboard type available, but a new mainboard will have the DDR3 ram socket.

Good luck

If you have already bought the other components that you would like to add then this should be fairly easy. To replace the processor first you need to remove the original one. Start by taking off the heat sink, a large piece of metal near the RAM. This should be done by either screws or push pins. Once this is off pull the metal lever near the processor to the side. Bring that lever up and remove the old processor. Put the new processor in. There should be markings as to which corner goes where. Next you need to apply some thermal grease on top of the old processor. If you don't have any you can buy some here ( Apply about a pea worth of thermal grease on top of the processor. Make sure the heat sink is clean before putting that back on. Normally it is a good idea to clean it off with a paper towel then some rubbing alcohol. Then reattach the heat sink and be sure to plug in the fan if there is one. Replacing the RAM is much simpler than the processor. Push down on tabs containing the old RAM and it should come out. take the new RAM and place it into the slot the old RAM was in and push down until the tabs come in and lock the RAM into place.

Advent T9400 dead motherboard

First replace the PSU, (it might be badly damaged - not only the fuse) and if you were unlucky enough to blow the chipset too it won't start even after the PSU replacement.

Need graphics card supporting the msi k9mm-v motherboard

here are the cards that you might be interested in.
Series 1
Series 2

Any one of these cards are the best AGP card you're gonna get. Only thing is, make sure your PSU is up to par. You will need at least a 450 watt psu.

It will be effective if you have 2gb RAM and Dual core processor.

PC dead. Replaced power supply. No lights. No nothing.

When that happens it is usually the motherboard.

To test parts you need a benchmark.

PSU can be tested using a multimeter.

Motherboard is tested using a tester like this one: PCI Test Card, PC Analyzer, Motherboard Test Card
Ram and CPU (CPU sometimes get damaged) are usually not damaged by this kind of problems, they can be tested mounting them on a working motherboard. For the RAM we also use a RAM tester that costs about $200.

Ensure also that the switch contacts to new motherboard are installed properly. A technician can test cabinet power switch using a multimeter, or carefully bridging with a screwdriver the switch on contacts on motherboard (do not do this unless you are sure about what you are doing)

Test the new PSU on a different socket, when a PSU blows , it may damage the main socket.

Also remember that new power supply units have two connectors. The big rectangular main one (24 pin) and a smaller 4 pins squared one.

As an home user you may not have access to testing equipment, therefore my suggestion is.

Ensure you are using the right PSU.

Ensure that the motherboard is connected to power switch.

Test the new PSU with a multimeter.

Examine the motherboard for blown or leaking components and burnt areas.

If you do not find anything, but the mainboard is still not working, then buy a motherboard-cpu bundle compatible with the PSU that you bought and assemble a new system inside the old cabinet.

I have a problem with my ram

That motherboard does not have a video circuit built-in, so the video sharing the system RAM does not make sense.

Have you checked the valid system memory configurations in your MSI manual pg 2-7 ?
Any chance that the bios is set for dual channel and you don't have equal chip sizes in the dual slots? Example : In dual-channel mode, equal size chips would go in slots 1 & 3 and in 2 & 4

Defective RAM is a possibility also.

Note1: Per MSI, all ram may not register correctly in windows unless 4 of the 2GB chips are used

Serious problems with an Asus M2N E SLI motherboard.

I understand how this must be driving you nuts. What I am going to suggest might sound stupid but I have to ask. After your assembly was finished (1st time around) did you check the 4-pin ATX + 12volt connector was correctly & fully inserted into the board? Pg. 2-28 section 6. in your manual? Did you add thermal grease to the CPU. A bad pin on the CPU will give you this symptom. I completly understand if you do not agree with this next part but it is extreamly important you go with it. Take the static bag your board was wrapped in & lay it on a table. Place a piece of foam on the static wrap & place your motherboard on the foam. You can use books instead. Connect your PSU, CPU heatsink & fan, Hd & video card & 1dimm to motherboard. Connect mouse, keyboard & monitor.
Check that PSU is set for 115v (small red slide switch near the off/on toggle switch). Plug in the PSU to outlet.
If the green led on board lights up you have power to board. This is known as a standby led. If it's not on, flip the toggle switch on the PSU to on.
Use a pen to short the power switch. This will turn on the board, no different than you pressing the power button on your case. Goto pg. 2-30 in your manual. Find PWRSW two pins. If the system starts up than somewhere durring install the board was shorted to the case.
