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.

Unless the on-board video is bad.

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 ?
