KT6V series MB help

  1. I recently build a new computer using a KT6V MS-7021 ATX Mainboard. When I attempt to boot it up, it errors out. The board has an optional Diagnostic LED on the back. The LED lights up with 4 red lights which it says:

    System Power ON
    The D-LED will hang if the processor isdamaged or not installed properly.

    I'm using a brand new Processor, in fact I even tried a second new processor that still caused the same problem. I'm thinking its something else causing the computer to hang. And other ideas are suggestings to what might be the cause would be apreicated.

    Thanks

    AH, I feel your pain too. It's MSI boards.

    I ONLY buy MSI motherboards because they are the only mobos that don't require a floppy drive/disk to flash the BIOS (at least that I'm aware of now). They usually get pretty good ratings too. Anyway, I have RMA'd/returned 3 MSI mobos in the past 6 months for the same type of failure. No POST, no beep, bad processor LED code. I tried everything and even replaced the CPU - the mobos are BAD, bad, bad. Just go to MSI's website and fill out the RMA form. If enough boards get RMA'd, MSI will get the picture and tighten up their QC.
