    MSI Neo 2 Platinum (voltage settings)

    hi
    ive been having trouble with my pc rebooting shortly after starting a game. i have an Antec NeoPower 480W Psu and

    everything is running at stock settings. i installed PCAlert from MSI and it seems that it has found something

    wrong with the voltage, please take a look at suggest what i need to change in the bios to fix it.

    Well that must be wrong. Your computer wouldn't run if the 12V was at... 2V. How many devices you got in there?

    List your specs for us please.

    Turn it off - disconnect the power to the CD drive and take out 1 stick of RAM, putting it somewhere safe. See what the readings are then.

    Also, go into the BIOS and see what the voltages read in there (usually a "PC Health" menu or something along those lines.) If they don't match the software then perhaps the software is dodgy.

    TIP: if you experience problems with Antec Neopower and Truepower PSUs and also with PowerStream PSUs, try Bios 1.37 and turn the PSU off after you shut down, seems to help as well

    ignore the 2v reading its the data being sent and displayed that is wrong!!!!!

    12v will be 12v not 2v

    I see the same on mine you'll fine the 3.3v line readings incorrect as well
    it will be in the low 3's but is higher always say 3.17v on mine and I've turned it
    up to 3.6 on the PSU and it still says 3.17v.

    So take the voltage reading with a hugh pinch of salt.

    Get a copy of winflash then load the w7025nms.141 bios file then tell it to flash the bios.

    ok i upgraded the bios to 1.41, switched my memory to slots 1 & 2 as opposed to 1 & 3 as stated in the manual; finally i moved the sata hd from slot 1 to 3 as in the the thread linked by 'da ding' and the result is
    Everquest 2 & Raven Shield run without crashing.
    Thanx again
