Hey guys, I'm getting FF on the board right now. Won't post.

I shut it down, brought it out to take some photos, turned it on once, without anything plugged into it, to take a few shots, and then brought it back and plugged everything in. Now it won't post, it's constantly stuck on FF.

Before anyone says clear the cmos, I've done that every way you can, more than a few times. I have even pulled the CPU and re-seated it in the socket, and re-seated the water block. I figured I'd grab the numbers off it while I had it out, I had forgotten to write 'em down before I installed it originally.

Sooooo... who has run into this and how did you get it back??

This happened once before, but a few cmos clears and a few restart attempts finally got it back. Not this time so far.

Marc

It was running just fine with a moderate o/c, nothing wild.

So you unplugged the system, Disconnected EVERYTINHG from it (On the Back panel, and all PCI(e) devices, Unplugged the 24pin Connector AND the 8pin CPU connector) pulled the Battery, Pushed the Power Button in and held it for 1.5-2 Minutes, let it go, crossed the CMOS jumper to delete the DATA left it for 2-5minutes.... Then Rejumped it to normal, replaced the Battery, plugged it all back in and then tried restarting and still nothing? Bacues that's what MSI will tell you to do. Maybe not even keepingt he Jumper crossed that long.

You have to completely disconnect the Motherboard from all power even coming from the PSU and take your Graphics cards out. It's basically like you were going to take it out of the Case but actually leaving it in... Nothing connected to it and then drain th e caps. Otherwise there could still be a trace of juice somewhere, even in the GPU Cards!

No, I haven't stripped it down yet like that. I guess that's my next try.

One stick of RAM in slot nearest CPU socket, no peripherals, keyboard and mouse, and one video card.

Also make sure the board is not shorting out in the case, maybe that is the problem.

Ok, I think I'm back in.

I have one gpu and one stick of ram in and it posted. I'm going to reset the bios, boot with the one card and one stick of ram into windows, then I'l go back and add the other stuff in.

Just glad to have gotten it back.

Marc

EDIT: So, I just booted into Windows with both sticks of RAM, and both GPU's in. I'm back in action! I'll get those photo's up soon, since this was what caused all this (certainly not me!)
