    Question MSI Mobo, problems

    Hi All,
    I have a problem, I have just built my first comp, everything was grand for a few months but now it won't boot up!
    My MSI 875P Neo has LEDs to indicate boot up problems, it gets stuck in the boot up at, "Testing VGA Bios" and stops there, no images on the screen.
    Help!

    i have tested the other components on a different comp, there all fine GPU included. What the hells wrong? I haven't touched the VGA Bios.
    This leaves me to believe that the problem is with the Mobo. but surely the mobo has nothing to do with VGA Bios?

    Help MUCH needed!

    In more simple terms, it means it's failing to start the display. This is likely to me either a faulty AGP port or corrupt BIOS, either way, as you've pointed out, it's a mobo fault.

    BIOS can actually be recovered by flashing if it's getting that far, unfortunately that board uses an AMI BIOS and I don't know if the flash utility has the functionality to get round it .

    a very long shot but have you tried:

    clearing the cmos

    using a different graphics card, even maybe a PCI one, then you know if its a bust AGP port ?
