I bought a MSI 785Gm-E53 AMD board for the new Phenom black 550 processor, I installed everything right as per the manual.
I turned on, it did not boot and also did not power up my cd rom drives, I had a case from 2007, I thought the power supply should be sufficient.
I tried checking my connections again, everything is fine and tucked in right
based ont he MSI manual, it has APS lights, i see blue lights
my second led is not lighting up (ie * #***)
THe first one is NB and the next 4 is APS lights the very first LED on the APS is not lighting up, can some one help me, to find out if the mother board is bad or the power supply is not sufficient.
Power supply specs? Most 300w ps will boot any bare bones test unless your video card requires the 6 pin ps connector. I would first reseat the ram; completely remove and reinstall. Then try resetting the bios or check the cmos jumper carefully. Be sure it's in the run position. Remove the motherboard battery for one minute with the power supply unplugged. Unplug the hardrive and optical drives for the post test.
