Possible MSI MoBo Issue ( No Post )

To my knowledge, I've gathered compatible hardware to upgrade my old eMachines et1810-03. I took all the necessary precautions while putting it all together. I read the MoBo manual several times. I did my research for this. Being my first build I spent hours looking up info. It was going to go great or so I thought.

After putting all of the parts together, I ran into the no post problem. I've tried many things to get it to post and nothing has worked. I get no beeps from my motherboard and after having it replaced by Amazon I'm starting to lose all hope.

I've turned to this site for any peace of advise or suggestion that could possibly resolve this.

Parts in right now:
Intel Pentium G3450 Haswell 3.4GHz LGA 1150 53W
MSI B85M-G43 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
EVGA 500W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

    The supported memory list for a motherboard is not always 100% accurate, you can often run memory that's not on the list. It is interesting however that the supported memory list for that board does not list any modules from Crucial at all.

    Have you tried booting with 1x stick of RAM? What exactly does the machine do when you press the power button.

    I've tried one stick and no stick. All it does is turn on the fans and LED lights. After the first initial power up it will shut off and turn back on again. It only does that once and then it remains on indefinitely.

    I completely understand. Yes I've gone through the steps several times.
  5. The only times generally I've got no post it's usually the CPU, I recently had a pesky AMD FX that refused to insert correctly and did the same thing.

    I'm not sure. I've looked at the CPU and socket a few times. No bent teeth and no visible damage.

    Would it be possible for it to be internally damaged?

    It's possible, but unlikely. I can't say I've ever had a faulty CPU. Well at least one I could diagnose as faulty anyway.

    Do you have any other RAM you could test in that board?
  8. Installed Corsair Vengeance 8gb stick and posted just fine. Now after installing windows and all the drivers the MOBO won't boot from SSD.
