So I just received the MSI KBV Neo Plat mobo with my Athlon 64 processor(3200+) from newegg this morning and have spent the afternoon installing.
I have a 400 watt power supply and a Radeon 9800 Pro card all ready to go, but when I make all the connections and get ready to power on and enter BIOS, the system will get going for about 5 seconds…BAM power off. Nothing ever appears on the monitor, the thing just can’t seem to stay stable for some reason longer than a couple seconds. The fans are all going, nothing inside is ever on long enough to get warm(I even checked the processor and vid card to make sure heating wasn’t an issue)
I’ve triple checked all the connections in accordance to the manual, can’t at all figure what the problem is about. I ended up reinstalling my old mobo again just to get back online and find help. :(
I did read a few buyer reviews on Newegg about this mobo many implied that you must download the new Nforce drivers to install right away as there is a bug on the shipping disc ones which adds a good 30 Celsius to the core temperature that isn’t so. Though all of those people were at least able to get into the Bios!
Any thoughts? I’m out of ideas and am really feeling the $400 blow…
