Won't boot.

I bought the MSI 970A-G46 board and I am with the following problem: It turns off in 3 seconds when you're with the FX line of processors. Have you tested it with the FX 8120 and the FX 6100. In both cases, the same thing happens.
The proplema is that when I put my old processor (Athlon II X4 635), it works perfectly without any problem.
Where can be the problem?
I've done the BIOS update to version 1.11 and the problem continues.
The plate is with Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB DDR3 SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B, source
3R System Iceage IA450HP80 450 W Power Supply Review and 1GB DDR3 video card.
I ask for help because they do not know what else to do to make it work.

Onde pode estar o problema?
Já fiz atualização da BIOS para a versão 1.11 e o problema continua.

Peço ajuda, pois não sei mais o que fazer para fazê-la funcionar.

  1. Should be supported according to the specs. Did you reset all settings to defaults in the bios?

    Yes. I've done that. I loaded the default option and nothing happens.
  3. Acording to the msi spec page the processors are supported.
    But your ram is not on the memory support list here..
    http://www.msi.com/file/test_report/TR10_2501.pdf
    So I wonder if this could be the problem...
    Also, 450watts is not a lot of power these days and I've never heard of that brand name before...
    Another thing you could do is clear cmos either by the jumper or remove battery for a few minutes.
    That will definitly reset all settings.
    Hope this helps...JQ
  4. I understood what you said, but how to explain the fact that it works with the other processor (Athlon II X4)?
    With it the motherboard works perfectly and recognizes 16GB of memory I have. Anyway thank you for the return.
  5. I've booted similar with a 350watt, he should be fine for that.

    I like johnnyq's idea of using the CMOS reset, do you know how to do this? Consult your mobo's manual and there should be a second on doing this. I can see mabey a power draw from the 8320, but the 6100 should have no problem, it is 125w, but should be fine.

    However, another question is the hardrives and videocard(s), there may be more power draw then we know about here :)
  6. I'm guessing the CPU is only supported on a different bios version.Check which version it is an flash the bios with it.
  7. update bios
  8. did you just take out an old cpu and put into current build with out reloading the os? i would drop in the new cpu, insert the windows disc in the cd/dvd you can use a paper clip to open it with the tower off and boot from the disc press f8 for boot options and do a repair install

    I had also done so. Regarding HD'se video card, I turned off the disks and put another video card, leaving only the processor, memory and video card. The result was the same.

    With the old processor Windows works perfectly. With the FX6100 card on and off then. Not 2 seconds.
