new system with MSI K9vGM-V won't post

Hi,

I built a cheap system using an MSI K9VGM-V MoBo and it will not boot or even POST.

The board is running a Athlon 64 X2 4800+ dual core, a single SATA hdd and an IDE DVD drive. I am currently using (ha, well planning on using) the on board VGA.

All the components are brand new.

I have connected the full 24 pin power and tried getting it to POST with no HDD or DVD connected (power and data), removed a stick of RAM (I have 2 1 gig sticks in it) based on someone elses problems i found in a forum. No joy though, The fans spin up, but it gives no signal to the monitor.

The only thing I can think of is the PSU, its a 400w one but a weedy example that came with the case, the only other I have is also a 400w (admitedly a better model) but it does not have 24 pins, just the older 20.

Anyone any ideas,

cheers P

hmmm

just tried the older 400w PSU with just 20 pins (apparently the MoBo can run this way),

The CPU fan kicks but then stops, so I am now guessing it needs more juice to even POST.

I normally get Gigabyte boards, but they were out of the ones I wanted, so thought I would save a second trip and go for the MSI one, my my

MoBo

Well, I tried a 1200w PSU (overkill but its all I had in the stores), still would not POST. Took it back to the tech guys at the shop, was a bad MoBo, put a new one in and it now works with the old 400w PSU.

What I find odd now though is, I used to build PC's for a living, would do 10 or so a day for corporations and the like, (this was in Pentium 2 days), I would be able to build all machines, plug them in with a ghosted HDD and they boot tol the OS, no worries, occasionally need to replace RAM cause some was not working etc.

Nowadays though, I have built about 5 machines over the last couple of years, friends and familly etc, and I kid you not, none have gone smoothly. I have always needed to take at least one component back for replacement.

I build quite a few systems. I usuall stick with what I know works. Once I find the combo that works best and is reliable, I stick with it. I have been using MSI boards for a while. They make very good basic desktop machines. I probably have only ever had one go ad. ECS on the other hand is a big no no for me. Lost6 boards over the last 2 years.

Glad you got is sorted out. To give it a good testing, folding at home is a good way to go.
