post #9521 of 9641
On July 7 I moved to a new place. That morning, my computer was working. After the move, the computer is not working.

On the MoBo it's showing a status FF. I hired movers to move my stuff, and my computer was one of the things they moved (the move was just across Brooklyn, so it wasn't that far).

I've already done the obvious, I've unplugged / reseated everything. I've tried just one stick of ram and I've swapped them back and forth. I've removed the CPU to verify no bent pins.

I feel reasonably confident the issue is one of the three things:

CPU, MoBo, PSU. Given that this happened during the move, I feel the PSU is less likely the cause (unless it is just a coincidence). Besides, Corsaire has a very good reputation.

This computer has been running now for about 2.5 years with no issues.

I am going to try to find a place to bench test the PSU (hopefully bestbuy will do that), but otherwise I have no way to test the other components.

If I do have to replace the mobo, I'm going to replace both CPU and MoBo and just upgrade.

Also, I have no spare system / friends system to test the MoBo / CPU on. As I said above, I'm going to try to find a place to bench test my PSU if this is possible.

Does it seem reasonable / possible that something happened during the move killing my CPU / MoBo? Possibly dropped, or jostled about in the moving van?

It happens. This mobo is very finnicky, that is why I gave it away. Once I changed the videocard , from Ati to Nvidia and left it running in the evening, in the morning the PC was shutdown completely, no power outage in the house, all clocks were ok, and my other system was running fine. Sometimes it will even display codes that are not even in the manual. Try resetting the BIOS, should help, especially that this mobo has a button for that I think. so try it a few times, the bios reset, should work

Thank you for the reply. I already reset the BIOS (only once though) I'll try it a few more times. It turns out bestbuy will benchtest the power supply, so I'll skip that over.

The XFX Core 650W is a Seasonic-made PSU though. It performs closer to the higher-end HX line from Corsair, while the TX is in the lower-end.

It's been moved, possibly the bios battery is flat.. FF relates to a re-detecting state. Is it possible to get it on one stick of ram in bank closest to cpu socket and nothing but a vid card and ps2 keyboard connected? And Then, power up and watch the onboard post codes, if ff then turn off power via case switch, then switch off power supply toggle or unplug, then press case power button for 15 seconds to drain capacitors then turn on the power supply toggle/plug in power cable turn on the system with case power switch, and watch to see if you get past "ff"" code again. If you ever getpast thsi code i suggest you make a msi tool usb boot stick and download the newest bios using one of the suggested browsers and flash that puppy. Be dilligent in studying the bios flash guide for the "msi Bios Flash Tool, as this is nothing like upgrading drivers. One mistake and the motherboard is a large paperweight. Alternately you can R.M.A. the board after msi support confirms the large paperweight state it resides in now "i.e." the "ff" status.

Something in the area of the socket broke on mine during a move, largely caused by it having to support a coolermaster N620 HSF ( in my opinion). I could get it to run buy supporting the cooler with a zip tie from the top of the case( big tower), this worked for a few months before finally giving up.
I believe that you may be able to rma it to msi, as it is less than 3 yeas old.. better hurry and contact them, you are getting close to the deadline for warranty.
I rma'd mine and they had it back to me in 10 days , good as new, no charge.... MSI made me smile.gif.

Dose this motherboard support trim for SSD in raid, cause i just bought 2 Crucial 128 GB SDD 3Gb by mistake I wanted the 6Gb
these are the ssd I bought http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-2-5-inch-Laptop-Install-CT128V4SSD2CCA/dp/B00839HH6A/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1347947428&sr=8-15&keywords=crucial+ssd+128
So I will not use them on the new motherboard I will use them with the old MSI 790fx-GD70 and just want to know if it will work in raid with trim support or should I return it
