If this is a desktop make sure you plug the speakers into the correct port and that the speakers are turned on and the volume is up. Also check the Audio and Sound Properties (Volume Control) to make sure the volume is turned up and not on mute.

Try downloading and installing the VLC Player, it comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve many issues with sound.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

Also if this is a desktop, you can always purchase a pci sound card that goes into one of the available pci slots for less than $15.

HI. This issue with the NB fan will be a direct result of fan failure. The actual fan motor assembly may be shorted or disabled. This fan should be replaced asap(make sure to check the fan connector for proper connection before replacing the NB fan). Now, concerning your halted boot screen; This will be a direct result of a failed or corrupted OS(Operating System). I would recommend to initiate a system restore by inserting the restoration CD/DVDROM that came with the CPU system, when purchased or delivered. This will totally reinstall the OS and correct all corrupted files that have been affected by this unfortunate virus/worm attack.

Due to the fact that your system will not boot up, you will need to insert the restoration CD/DVDROM into its respective ROM device and shutdown the unit for five minutes. Once the shutdown has occurred, simply, restart your unit and follow the restoration instructions on screen during the hard boot. It may be necessary to self initiate the restoration by booting from the actual ROM device, via f11 or f9 command upon boot screen.

This is the Motherboard Manual for the MSI K8N Neo4 series of motherboards. It is in PDF file form,


If the direct link above doesn't work, copy the above URL, then paste it in your address bar. Press the Enter key.

It may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page, and additional time may be required to fully download. This is a temporary download. There is a way to save it to your computer.
(This way you can burn a copy to CD disk for safekeeping, and remove it from the computer to save harddrive space)

If you do not know how, and wish to, please post in a Comment.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the blue down arrow.
Go to Page 39.
There you will see that there is a Clear CMOS button.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
