I recently put together a new build and I can't get it to post bios. The MB and all of the fans are receiving power. I tested the RAM by trying both of them in the DIMM1 slot one at a time. Tomorrow I'm going to put it all together again, just to double check everything. Can any one offer any advice? I'm clueless here.
The diagnostic lights will probably tell you what the problem is--look in the manual (or download it off of MSI's website, if you don't have it) for what it means, or call MSI's tech support.
I've deduced and solved the problem. It was CPU- motherboard pins.
My new problem is that I'm not detecting a boot device.
Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but if you want to install an operating system (i.e. Windows 7), you need to put the disk in your DVD drive, and then set that drive as the first device to try booting from, in your bios.
