I have the following self-built system which has worked great for the past 2 years:
MSI K9N Platinum MB
AMD 64 X2 4200+ CPU
ATI All-In-Wonder X1900 Video card
2 GB Crucial Memory
450 Watt Antec Power Supply
Machine locked up yesterday. When I tried to restart I get no POST, no beeps, but the fans and hard drives power up OK. I have tried the following:
-Reset the CMOS
-Switched out the memory
-Reseated Video card, memory, and CPU
-Removed MB from case with CPU/fan, Video card, plus 1 stick of Memory and still have same problem
The D-bracket which came with the MSI MB shows 4 red LEDs, which may indicate a CPU problem, but the MSI tech told me it could be other problems as well. I do not have another video card or CPU to try.
Any suggestions from here? Should I send the MB back? Is this more likely to be a MB problem or CPU, or could a bad Video card cause the system not to POST, or is it something else?
Thanks in advance for any help.
