I've been having this weird problem and its been getting more frequent lately, you see I purchased the Msi 970A-G43 and I sometimes get the 1 long beep followed by 2 short wich I found was a no video signal, with my old mobo I had never this problem, so it usually fixes itself oddly enough I shut my computer down every night and the next day I turn it on and it beeps so I restart it a few times then it turns on and works perfectly so any ideas, gfx card: gtx 670, processor Fx 8350.

Sounds like might have a weak, underpowered or dying PSU, may take a few seconds to get warm or not enough initial voltage to crank things up

Well if that's the case that really sucks considering I just bought a evga nexb 750w psu to replace my issue with games crashing... And even with the old psu it did this new problem.

Then might be something else - could you post your system voltages, mobo may not be regulating correctly

Sorry I'm kind of new but where can I find voltages? Would these be them,

CPU voltage : 1.4035v, CPU NB: 1.2095, SB voltage, 1.0992, NB voltage 1.0992, DRAM voltage 1.4995

What DRAM do you have, the model #, if it's 1.5 spec DRAM take the DRAM voltage to 1.55 and take the CPU/NB voltage up to 1.25, see if that helps

Sorry where can I find this dram number?

Should be aon a sticker on the stick(s)

Oh boy are you sure I can't check in dxdiag? I don't want to go in my pc ATM because it is running aha!

I took the case panel off and I see ddr3 1333 does that help?

DXDIAG might show it, or check in CPU-Z it should show the part # in the SPD tab, sorry bout that was thinking, duh........;(
June 28, 2013 9:22:14 PM

Part number?, in that case TD4G16C9-Z8

Can't find a for sure voltage, try with the above mentioned and set DRAM voltage at 1.55
June 28, 2013 9:36:03 PM

It says in CPU-z under timings table voltages 1.50V so should I still try raising it?
June 28, 2013 9:38:13 PM

And do you mean 1.5 or 1.5005?
a c 1649 V Motherboard
June 28, 2013 9:43:44 PM

Yes and CPU/NB voltage to 1.25
June 28, 2013 9:47:26 PM

Yes?! What, aha 1.5 or 1.5005

1.55 for DRAM, 1.25 for CPU/NB

Ok done now umm I guess il get back to you on this when I turn it on tomorrow :)

Will be in and out, I'll be looking and checking as I get time

well im afraid it did not work but i thought about whar you said about warming up. i guess thats the problem bacause today it did the no signal beep once but instead of restarting it right away, i waited a minute, then pressed the power button, waited for it to turn off, turned it back on and it came on right away? any ideas? i just realized that i dont have the ati system drivers yet, ive downloaded everything but those, are they important?

Yes, some components may not be initializing properly

ok heres the new problem, its not getting more frequent, its just doing the same thing every day : I turn on my computer, it does a no signal beep i wait about a minute turn it off, then back on and it works, this is very odd and i know it is not the power supply because i just replaced my old one that had this very same problem plus a bunch of other issues. anyone??

Mobo may not be taking and regulating the juice, that first time you hit the power button is almost like "it's about time to get to work" then the second, things had a jolt so they fire on on up

thank you, i think i can live with that for now. :)

I'm having the exact same problem. I've tracked down that apparently the 970a-G43 might have a bad voltage regulator module? No heatsink? When I saw voltage issues mentioned in this thread, I thought maybe that could have something to do with it. Am I onto something here?

But this is bothering me quite a bit. I can just press the restart button in a few seconds and it boots up properly, but it doesn't seem healthy to have this error occur every time at boot... I dunno.

Specs: 970a-g43 motherboard, AMD FX-6300 cpu, Samsung 840 SSD, Samsung 1tb HDD, Nvidia GTX 560 ti, 2x 4gb Corsair Vengeance ddr3 ram, OCZ f4tality 550w PSU, Rosewill line glow atx mid tower

Could well be and wouldn't surprise me, this is one of the reasons I don't touch MSI mobos, their poor QC (Quality Control) and quality in general

I see, heheh. I've actually not had the best experience with this MSI GTX 560 Ti card either, but for some reason (fairly good user ratings, I guess) I thought maybe that wouldn't translate to their motherboards. Maybe I should order a new mobo and send this one back... though I haven't exactly nailed down that it's the motherboard that's the issue, here.

What brands of mobo would be recommended?

I only deal with the Big 3, Asus, the Rock and GB mobos -- have found building rigs for clients with the other brands isn't worth the headaches
