MSI KT3 Ultra
I just put this machine together.
MSI KT3 Ultra
AMD 1800 XP
PC2100 Crucial 512meg
Abit Surilo 32 meg agp
Liteon DVD Rom
When I shutdown from my desk top.
The machine shuts down and reboots all by itself.
Then on reboot I get three long beeps and it will not boot
blank screen. The D-Led lite #2#3#4 are red and #1 is green.
Manual says early chipset?? cant rmember exactly iam at work sorry.
I have disconnected the reset switch totaly.
All power schems are off.
The only way it will reboot is if i turn the power switch off at the power supply on the back of the computer.
I have checked and rechecked all the power connections from the case to the motherboard. And 4 hours of, I can't remember!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MS MCP, MCSE
Thanks for the reply Bipolar
I didn't want to do that !!!
I have on two other computers and was successfull, but i didnt want to push my luck.
I figured it was new. I did check the bios updates and didnt see anything pertaining to my problem.
I was hoping for something simple that i was overlooking.
If their are no other suggestions i will flash the bios.
Try clearing CMOS according to directions first then.
Thanks again BipolarBill,
I did it three times!!
By the book!
Did it help?
I did all that before I posted here.
I have also e-mail MSI and awaiting a reply from them.
I have that same board and I love it to death, especialy with those diagnostic LEDs on the back. Mine would lock up, restart and get me BSODs all the time untill I replaced the power supply to a good enermax 350 watt psu. Before I was using the generic L&C technologies one that came with my case. stay away from them, i'll tell ya what. Anyways, if your BIOS update doesn't get you anywhere, consider a new PSU. You didn't mention what kind you had.
The case is new. Some off brand 400watt. I was going to purchase a Fong Kai but this guys budget wasnt. If thats what the problem is, the next guy is going for the extra bucks.
This isn't worth it.
Its an off brand case with a 400watt supply.
I was going to buy a Fong Kai, but this guys budget wasn't.
If this is the problem, the next guy is going for the extra bucks.
You Were Right SpaceBz
I tried another video card N/G
I replaced the power supply with an Enlight 250W
The power supply in the 500SEL case was an Leadman 400W
Lesson: I will never buy a cheap case again!
If they can't afford an good case then I will not build it for them!@
Thanks everyone for your help!!
