MSI Board getting hung and not passing POST stage

I have purchased this MSI board three years b4. i dont know the model no. when i start the computer it gets hung at teh 1st sag only where it provides an option to press TAB "for Post" or DEL "to enter BIOS setup". teh key board becomes inactive. i have tried many methods to get it started but it is not working. Also another thing i noticed was that when i removed the power cable from Harddisk it is passing the CMOS. Please suggest.

Either the hard drive cable isn't plugged in correctly or the power supply connector is faulty and try another power connector. With the hard drive, make sure the cable to the hard drive is connected withe the red line on cable faced to the same side as the power connector. Also check that the connector on the hard drive is either on Master or Slave mode if on the same cable as the CD Rom. The motherboard sounds like it's working correctly. Even try to see if connectors are correct on the CD Rom and floppy drive. Good Luck!

My msi p55-gd55 doesn't post and I don't get any video

Your board didn't come with on board video so, you must have a video/garphics card? Need make, manufacturer, and model of card for graphics. It comes with three PCIe slots.

Your issue may very well be a RAM problem. I use MSI boards for most of my built computers and I have run into this 1 time. Try another stick of ram or if you have more than one in the system use just one at a time and see what happens. Also check to see if you have any Capacitors that are failing. You can tell this by making sure that all the little tops are flat not bulged. If you see any of them bulged you can replace it if you know how to solder but normally this is a temporary fix the board at that time is failing and needs to be replaced. After researching more about this particular board it would appear that the board is picky about its RAM. The driver download page for this board series is located here:

This is a page with links to specific boards in that series since I didnt know your EXACT model. Click the link to your exact model and then click the Drivers link on your boards page and you will find the drivers you asked for.

Also you may consider flashing the BIOS. Be careful though. If it fails your board will be dead. Follow the instructions for your board to the letter and you shouldnt have any problems.

There is also a driver utility that you can download from MSI that helps you automatically get your drivers and Bios updates.

Hope this helps...
