I am building a heavely multimedia computer and i am having issues with it. I installed all components and fired it up. It has an MSI motherboard and the mobo comes with the D Bracket. When i fired it up for the first time, nothing on the monitor appeared. I am assuming no post. The D bracket had the two left lights red and the two right lights green. the MSI website said the indicators indicated:
" Testing Base and Extended Memory - Testing base memory from 240K to 640K and extended memory above 1MB using various patterns"
^----- I dont know what the heck that means and for what reason the indicators stop on it.
Here is the webpage I found the information on: http://www.msicomputer.com/support/sup_tshoot.asp
I pulled the motherboard out and all the extra cards. So just the mobo, processor (with fan), video, Ram and switches.
Now the computer turns on for about .5 seconds and shuts down The indicator light on the D bracket has the same indication for that period of time.
Here are the links to the equiptment:
