MSI P6N SLI-FI - new build will power but no post - HELP!! Tags: MSI-Microstar SLI MSI Motherboards Last response: May 29, 2007 12:08 AM in Motherboards Share kathryn21 May 28, 2007 9:57:44 PM Here's what I have in right now: MSI P6N SLI-FI Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 2x1GB G.Skill DDR2 800 Antec Earthwatts 500W PSU -- NO VGA CARD -- It's in shipment. I'm just listening for post codes to make sure the machine boots up okay. It powers for a second, but there is no beep and the diagnostic LEDs do not light up. Then, it powers down. I would appreciate any help. Thanks in advance, Kathryn More about : msi p6n sli build power post kathryn21 May 28, 2007 10:25:33 PM Okay, forgot to mention that I have Maxtor 250GB. Also, I unplugged USB ports from the backplate, all SATA drives, system fan, front audio connectors to narrow down the problem. Finally, I put in a graphics card to see if a lack of one might be the problem. It's a MSI NX8500GT. Still, the same problem. Any ideas?
