Okay a long one.

Well I was taking a shower came out and the cat was all over my keyboard.

I had my speakers on and music also,about 20 applications were on.

So keyboard was froze and it was whining and humming like nothing I have heard before.

Well I thought a reboot would fix it NOT.

So it came back and said "check Video Cable" okay the video card fried,well went and bought one installed same thing.

So returned the card Okay well now I figure that either the MOBO is fried or CPU so a new board is here MSI this time.

Old one is Asus M2A-VM AMD Motherboard - AMD 690G, Socket AM2, Audio, Video, DVI, PCI Express, Gigabit LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID

New board is a MSI K9N6PGM2-V Motherboard - NVIDIA GeForce 6100, Socket AM2, MicroATX, Audio, Video, PCI Express, 10/100 Ethernet LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID

Okay so I have ordered a new CPU also to have in case.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Processor ADX6000CZBOX - 3.0GHz, 2MB Cache, 1000MHz (2000 MT/s), Windsor, Dual-Core, Retail, Socket AM2, Processor with Fan which is the same except the cache is higher.

Okay so If I try the New CPU first will if the board is fried burn the New CPU?

PS is a Thermatake 500 about 9 months old as is the system.
22Inch LCD video XFX 3 gigs Corsair ram no ECC
On board sound 2 500 gig Seagate HD Sata
Ethernet card D-Link
Keyboard 512 logitech wireless

I have built about 12 systems over the years from Pentium 2's to AMD this one first time I lost a MOBO Processors yes two AMD Athlon's
Runs thru a Upc Belkin

Thanks for any help

No. But I would inspect everything with a flashlight and look for loose cables inside the case before doing anything else. I've never had a cpu fail unless the heatsink broke off or the fan stopped turning for a long time; in that case, you'll get some warning in the form of lock ups, bluescreens, or corrupted windows files. I usually troubleshoot in this order: power supply, memory, then motherboard.

You could hard reset the bios. I had an occurence when my system would not even reach boot sequence, and then it turned off again.

Refer to you manual on how to hard reset the bios.

Generally its: 1. Unplug power
2. take out mobo battery
3. move jumper to clear, leave for about 10 seconds, and put it back,
4. return battery and plug in power
5. start up computer.

Solved my problem.

Refer to your manual for specific instructions for your mobo. (if you have a manual for your motherboard), otherwise the jumper is usually close to the mobo battery,


Good luck.

Have not tried it yet.

I can not see what Bios would have to do with it though.

Thanks will give it a go and post if fixed.

But don't think so.
