Question about MSI K8MM-V Motherboard

1 Answer

MSI-Board K8MM-V starts immediatly after turning on power

I've bought a used MSI K8MM-V board and I've tried to get it running. The board has started immediatly after I've plugged in the mains plug (no need to press the power switch). The CPU fan has been running, but I ahvn't got any video signal on the sreen, nor a error signal from the board. I checked the power supply with my old board and it worked fine. What can I do to fix the problem? How can I find out, if the motherboard is ok? Could it be problem caused by transport (the board came to me with the mounted CPU + fan and the mounted memory - it was wrapped up in a kind of a foam foil) Thanx in and advance for any helping answers.

    I had no user manual and I didn't know that the ATX specification has changed. My power supply is too old and doesn't support the ATX 2.x specification.

    It seems that I have to buy a new power supply.

Unless the on-board video is bad. I found this website from MSI Corporation. It explains in detail (with pictures) troubleshooting techniques you can try. I hope this helps. Please write me back and let me now if this helps.

If your copy of Win XP does not recognize the SATA drive (i.e. Early copy of XP) you will need to use the F6 option and load the SATA driver that came with the MSI mother board.

MSI 7142 and via vt 6237r audio driver problem

You need to confirm the board model number before I can find drivers.

Is your board a K8MM-V ? This was the only board that came up when I did a search with 7142 on the MSI website.

Did you load the VIA Smart5.1CH Sound Drivers for K8MM3-V/K8MM-V/P4MAM2-V ?

Also please refrain from rating solutions after 1 reply. Sometime it take more than 1 attempt to solve your problem. The aim is to get dialogue between us to understand the issue, clarify the need and find a resolution.

I look forward to your reply so I may continue to assist you.
