Question about MSI KT4V (MS-6712) Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer Shuts down and won't start up

My PC is 4 years old and, until recently, has been very reliable. all of a sudden it has started shutting down and refuses to restart. I turn on the power and the disk light flickers, but the Green Power On light doesn't come on and, although the disks are working away, I get no display. I've tried cleaning out the inside and making sure connections are seated tight. There is a slight smell of burning, but I can't see anything obvious. Given that the hard disk is working is this the Motherboard that has given up on me?

    I've started on a process of elimination and am working my way through things.

    The fan on the PSU is seized so I'm replacing that first coz I don't like the smells from it.

    If that doesn't cure it I'll addrss the Motherboard enxt, providing I can find one.

Yes it could be, although the hdd wouldnt work either, unplug the 21 pin connector from the power supply unit that is connected to the motherboard power connector and see if the plastic plug has melted into the socket, if you cant pull it out theres a good chance it has.

Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart


Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

Need free repair manual


You need to give symptoms. For example, "I turn the starter motor, engine turns, but it won't start, and I smell gasoline odor." Diagnosis, you're giving too much throttle, the spark plugs become wet & saturated, so it won't start until the spark plugs are dry.
So do you mean it was running, and suddenly stopped in traffic, it was parked overnight and starter motor refuses to turn, or starter motor turns, but refuses to start ?? We need SPECIFIC symptoms if you want diagnostic feedback from this website.
You said "cars" in plural, so two or more cars all broke down at the same time? Maybe you have enemies or someone who wants retribution payback for an argument in recent past, so he sabotaged all your cars? Like in the last 3 or 4 days, or last night? When people are fuming, they exact retribution shortly. The more time goes by, they cool down and decide not to take revenge.

Why does my mac desktop computer screen start to flicker then shut off?


Remove the main battery and try again, the power supply adapter may be breaking down under load, there is no reliable way of testing other than subbing another power supply.
