  1. Hi,

    I have a new MSI KT6V motherboard and a AMD Sempron 2600+ processor. I have installed the cpu onto the board but when it boots I can see the cpu fan start and then stop after a few seconds. I have tried a couple of different mb's and processors, cpu fans and get the same results. I have also tried different psu's and tried the board outside of the case.

    Has anyone expereinced this or have any ideas what could cause it?

    Thanks

    this is a common problem, caused by either bad parts or human erroe (it's more likely to be the latter). did you use any static shock protection during the installation? is your board and it's attached perhiperals mounted correctly in the case?
