[Help!] Power Cycle Required MSI NF980-G65

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I posted this in the Mobo section which seems to be rather dead today.

I have had this board for a little while and have successfully Oced my CPU to 3.6Ghz on the board. The thing that drives me crazy is that after every single shut down I have to power cycle the system by turning the power switch on the rear to off, then pressing the power button for about a second which causes all the lights to come on briefly, then turn the switch back to on and power up.

If I do not power cycle most of the time it wont post. If it does post and make it into windows, half of the sensors and controllers aren't enabled or recognized, my CD drive does not show up in explorer, and my temperature sensor gadget looks all the text and graphs literally fell to the bottom of the gadget.

What could be the issue?
Has anyone else encountered this ridiculous behavior?

does it still happen when you run the system at stock speeds? if it doesnt then replace the psu. if it does, then you have to start from the oc settings and go through the other parts of the pc.

I have the same board and haven't had any problems like that. What bios version are you running and have you tried clearing the cmos and trying all default settings?

I had a problem with this. I just sent my NF980-g65 in for rma. That fixed mine. Couldn't figure it out.

I thought the power supply might be the issue, so I borrowed a friends XFX 750W last week while he was out of town and it did the same thing.

I am running 1.4 which I think is the most current bios. I have done the Clear CMos and removed the battery multiple times during OC'ing So I think that would have done it. I ran the system at all stock speeds, 3.0 GHZ CPU and 1333 on the ram which is below stock, and all the votages set at auto for about a month and had the same problem.

Maybe I am on this road. I will contact MSI to see what they have to say.


I have an older SSD and When I first built the system I Just used the HDD for the OS for about a week and did not encounter any such problems. But then I decided to take the SSD from the media center and stick it in the sig rig and after that is when the problem occurred. I guess I could have included that in the OP, but it has been several months.
