Ok, so i just bought a new computer, put it together, however, now i can't get the darn thing to work properly.
When i turn it on i get 4 red Leds on the mainboard. But when i press the onboard, Reset button, it fires up as it should, what do i do?

Sorry but I have to agree with apache_lives.
MSI makes some terrible products.
As you just purchased the system, try and return the MSI motherboard.
Replace it with a comparable ASUS or Gigabyte P45 board.

Where do i adjust voltage, cant find it!

I havent set voltage yet, as i do not know where to do this. However, changing the relations helped out alot. So far, the system has fired up as its supposed to. I wont celebrate yet, not until i've tested it some more and assured myself that its stable. But i seem to be on the right track, finally.

Thx Apache Lives! ;-D

I will, of course, tell you how it all pans out!

Bummer! :-(

I'm almost there, i can feel it. But, the computer crashes from time to time.
I havent changed voltage on the ram yet, still dont know where to do that.
Does any of you have an idea as to what is wrong?

Bought an ASUS MB instead, runs smoothly now!
Last time i ever purchase MSI!

Thx, for you trying to help me guys! =)

You all that say MSI ismaking terrible products dont know what you talking about , my friend baught same one installed everything , and everything works 100%. I prefer MSI mobo's , because they perform better in strategy games while the asus is better with First person shooter. I have always baught MSI parts and have NEVER had a single problem
