system will not boot!!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I decided restart my computer just because, then i walked away for it to load... i come back and it's at the MSI screen for my mobo. i thought it wasn't a big deal sadly. it will no boot up.

i tried to enter bios but as it says "entering set up...." it just stays.

I thought my hard drive failed but i switched it with another and same thing. i even tried it with no hard drive. same thing.

I also tried putting in my windows 7 cd but it won't boot seeing that i cannot enter bios to set the dvd drive as a priority..

Pretty stuck right now.

Oh, jeez... this happened to my MSI 790FX-GD70 twice when I first built it, and it was hell to get back on its feet...

First thing I did was pull the CMOS battery, unplug every single cord out of the back, and then waited. That fixed it the first time, so it's probably worth trying... keep reading first, though.

Second time, I got smart and pressed and held the "Clear CMOS" button for a few second, which basically did the same thing. Yours may have a jumper instead of a button for this...

I'm not sure if either one of those will help you, but it's worth trying... I'll keep thinking and see if I can come up with anything else.

UPDATE:
Here's a little something that may help in the future...
While you're at it, if you DO manage to get into the BIOS, turn off the MSI Splash Screen on POST. This doesn't have to be forever, just for now, until you get everything stable again. I always do this when my setup starts acting funny, and it generally ends up saving me when it DOES hang - I can see where it got stopped, and typically get it fixed faster. Just a tip...

I don't know whether or not there's an actual button on your board or not - it was a special feature on the GD70 I have. Pulling your battery will achieve the same thing, though...

And yes, it's really fairly simple. Take it out, wait about five minutes for everything to drain, then put it in the same way you took it out.
Be Warned:
You'll have to reset EVERYTHING in your BIOS once you do this. It completely wipes it and sets everything back to the automatic setup settings. That includes your clock. You may want to try this last if you did major, intricate overclocking or something like that. If not, just remember to set any options back that were reset incorrectly.

It's really not as bad as it sounds. Just giving a heads up.

you can just pull the battery and it resets the cmos.

however there should be a place near the battery that says cmos and will either be a small jumper on pins, or a button that says reset.

Hah, no problem. I was in the same situation as you about half a year ago. Just glad to have saved someone the hours of trouble I went through to figure this out... Glad it worked.

No clue what causes this... at least it's not quite so bad knowing how to fix it.

I've seen this problem before, on many computers....

My advice to you is SELL IT FAST....

Get a new one, move on, I'm sure you will be happy you did!

I for one can say that I didn't sell mine and am certainly happy that I didn't... Not much point in selling the whole thing, even if something WAS wrong, because it would only be the motherboard anyway, which is certainly a lot cheaper than replacing an entire computer.
To each his own opinion, I guess.

Either way, good luck, Rawk.
