    Hi all.

    I just got a K8N Neo4 Platinum, and have a problem with switching it
    on and off.

    When I switch on the mains to the PC PS(before turning the PC on), the
    fans start turning, and I hear disks spinning up. The PC power LED is
    off, but the HD LED is on. There is no picture on the monitor.

    If I then switch the PC on, it boots normal, power LED is on, and the
    HD LED is normal. The PC is working absolutely normal.

    But when I power it down again, the fans remain on, power LED off, HD
    LED on. And I can't switch the PC on again, till I have toggled the
    mains supply.

    I have tried measuring what comes on the power connector. It looks
    like there is still 12V when the PC is supposed to be switched off.
    Don't know if that is right.
    There is also 5VSB and PWR OK, but I think they are supposed to be

    I hope I have been able to explain the problem in understandable

    Yes I do, but is wasn't connected.

    When I install a new mainboard, I always start up with only CPU,
    memory, videocard, floppy drive, CD-drive and harddisk.

    I didn't know that site. Thanks for the link.

    I tried a search there, but didn't find anything that looked like my
    problem. But then again, my german is far from perfect, so I could
    have missed something.

    You er right Manfred, Jens could be german. But in my case it's
    I will try to ask the question in the MSI forum, and see if anybody
    has a solution. Mut by now I think it's the motherboard.

    Good Luck.
    Back to MSI with it. When I read the first reviews of the Neo4's I
    decided to delay my "must have". I'll wait for the next revision. But my
    next board will be MSI. Asus never again!

    It was the motherboard. I have verified it with a new board today.
