MSI 890FXA-GD70 starting problem
« on: 02-June-11, 05:57:54 »

Hello

I just got a new MSI 890FXA-GD70 and after all is plugged in and when i start the computer all the fans start but the bios doest show up. The strange thing is that most of the leds turn on (CPU Phase leds all light up and stay on, the DDR phase lights up and stay on) BUT, and this is the strangest part, the diagnostics display on the board doest even turn on. There is also no sound noises of any kind and I'm 99% sure i plug the speaker right.

I even started the board having no RAM and no HD to see if "anything" happened but always the same. Leds light up and stay on but nothing else. I'm using a CORSAIR AX1200 1200W for power. The CPU is an AMD Sempron 140.

This is also a good time to tell this is the first time i try to build a computer so any rookie mistakes i could have made, like something i forgot to plug, or any jumpers you can point and laugh  :bonk:

Any ideas??

Thank you

I'm sure it can be relevant telling the OS and HD and such but in this case i cant get past the starting point. I don't even see the BIOS. I don't even have RAM or HD plugged just to test it. But there you go my friend:

# AMD Sempron 140
# MSI 890FXA-GD70
# Kingston 1x1GB
# XFX HD 6990
# No Hardrive
# None...just fans
# No OS
# CORSAIR AX1200 1200W, 80 PLUS Certified (+5V~30A, +3,3V~30A, +12V~100.4A)

I'm not close the computer right now but i' hope this is enough.

I'm using it for Animation and Rendering server so i just need the machine to start up. The secret is all on the dual GFX 6990 and after i plug it to the farm the CPU is irrelevant.

I have not! But it's going to be the first thing i will do as soon i get home. Like i said on top, i just find it odd the fact the leds light up and the diagnostics display doest turn on. If it's a shorting issue any chance i could have fried the board? Or that's is just some safety "thing"?

Removing the board and putting it on some cardboard plugging just the essential solved my problem  ;D

After that was just a match of putting all inside the box and testing it several times to see if all was ok. In the end i have the computer working fine so far.

Thanks for the help :biggthumbsup:
