MSI Mobo won't boot past POST/BIOS

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've been building a computer over time, and now that I finally got everything I needed, once I start it up it just shows the Mobo logo screen, then POST, and if I clear CMOS by removing the battery/switching jumper it will let me get to BIOS. But after loading defaults and saving the computer restarts and jus takes me back to the post screen as pictured below, where DEL didnt do anything but F11 made it say "Entering boot menu" but it jus seems to freeze and doesnt do anything.

Here's what I have built..
Rosewill Challenger Mid ATX Case
MSI NF750-G55 Motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 3.2ghz Black Edition
4GB OCZ DDR3 RAM - 10666
500GB Hitachi SATA HDD
Sony Optiarc 24x SATA DVDRW
435w PSU

I hear that MSI boards occasionally burst into flames as well...

Your post screen stats that you are running 1333 speed on your memory. If you are running those OCZ 1066 modules you need to set memoryspeed manually.

PC-10666 RAM is not the same as 1066Mhz Ram.

In fact, PC-10666 RAM, runs @1333Mhz by default.

(My SigRig's RAM is PC-12800 @1600Mhz)

Noezy, what kind of keyboard do you have, a PS/2 or a USB?

Perhaps you can try switching USB ports for your keyboard and see if you get any responses then.

Good luck.

Yeah tried different ports, and even different keyboards, but still have the same problem unfortunately. I'm wondering if it could be the battery or motherboard(which i hope its not) but i'll be calling MSI on monday to see if they know anything about it.

How old is your motherboard? If it is an older one it may need a bios update for that CPU.Take 1 stick of RAM out and try to get past POST-try with both sticks seperately.Adjust your mem voltage up a notch-lower speed.This does not sound like a mobo issue,unless you got a bad RAM slot or something.Try switching SATA ports-make sure your optical drive is selected first on boot to load windows.
