Motherboard/CPU(s) Problem..

well.. in December i left my computer down the street at my local computer shop.. because at the time i didnt know how to mess with SATA..

the computer guy who offered to do it for me.. totally screwed my computer. unluckily i brought my AMD athlon64 3000+ and my free Sempron 2600+ down their.. i dont know what he did because i was 2 stores down in the plaza eating pizza.. and when i came back it was broke and he was trying to change the cpus.

so i got a new motherboard (MSI 7030 Ver:1 Socket 754 MotherBoard)

i put everything in.. (using the sempron) it worked... it got to the bios screen then i turned it off to start my spring break..

i tried again and it booted and had a beeping sound.. indicating bad memory/agp/cpu..

it was the cpu so i tried the other one.. but niether of them work now.. what do you think could be wrong? i could totally see it being the cpus because i dont know what the guy down the street did..

when it comes to computers i am very good.. i have built a few for friends but my own system is totally screwed (and has been for 3 months) what could be the problem..

More about motherboard problem
  1. Did you check the cpu and see if the "computer guy" had accidently knocked off one of the pins?
  2. yep.. i checked and didnt see anything..

    and i have used 3 motherboards since and none of them worked on either processor.. (other than the first boot off the MSI mobo)
  3. again another MSI problem - iv had one of my boards replaced many times before the company i bought it from gave me an ASUS board (old stock) to get rid of me, iv seen all there products (mobo's video cards and cd burners) fail and die - there all crap, now that you have learnt your lesson never buy them again.

    I need some more information to be able to help. What hardware do you have installed with this system:

    - Motherboard = K8N Neo Platinum (MSI Part No: MS-7030)
    - CPU-1 = AMD Sempron 2600 (Socket 754)
    - CPU-2 = AMD Athlon64 3000 (Socket 754)
    :arrow: - Memory =
    :arrow: - Hard Drive = (You did say SATA What Brand and Model)
    :arrow: - Video Card =
    :arrow: - Power Supply = :idea: (Does it have the 4-Pin connector goinf to the motherboard)?

    This is from MSI's WEB Site:
    Main Memory
    • Supports 3 slots for 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM modules.
    • Supports the memory size up to 2GB.
    • Supports unbuffered non-ECC DDR 400/333/266.
    :arrow: • Supports a maximum memory size of 2GB for DDR400
    :arrow: • Supports a maximum memory size of 3GB for DDR333

    :wink:

    Funny - Our failure rate on MSI boards are less than 1%. Our failure rate on ASUS boards is now over 40%. I dont think his problem is the board - maybe configuration issue.
