|I'm on my second MSI K8N Neo v.2 motherboard. MS-7030. Last year I had one just up and die on me I guess? It shut itself down and power light started blinking slowly. I stripped it down to the bare minimum and nada. New power supply, New bios battery, reset bios, reseated ram, reseated CPU, nothing helped. |
Found another motherboard like it swapped it out and voila booted up like nothing ever happened with all original hardware. Now it has been running for not quite a year and it died. Started the same way, shut down like it's hibernating or something and power light just blinked. Could never get it back on. This board as soon as you plug it in the power light just comes on and stays on. Nothing else happens.
Between that down time I had a completely different computer running in the same location. It was a dual core amd with all new parts, case, drives, etc. It also died! Only thing it shared was the same keyboard, monitor, and UPS backup. It too would not boot but it would spin up the fans.
Could something be killing my motherboards? Only logical thing I could think of would be the UPS ??? I'm running out of resources $ to keep rebuilding.
