MSI K8n Neo4 Platinum Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor
GeForce 6600 GTOC 128mb gddr3 PCI Express
Thermaltake 560 PSU
Thermaltake Venus Series CPU Fan
Corsair 2 GByte TwinX Matched Memory Pair
The thing is that I'm building 5 of these machines. I have already built 3 of them and they work just fine. But the 4th one doesn't seem to want to boot. the screen won't even get to the part where it does the memory check and beeps. Sometimes it does (1 in every 20) boot, but when I go to the bios and change some stuff and reboot, it doesn't reboot. it just kinda sit on a blank black screen. but even when it does, sometimes the text in the bios part is glitchy or is even discolored. I thought it could have been a heat problem, so I put some Arctic Silver 5 on the chip and on the heat sink and put it back on but it still doesn't work. I switched memory (different slots and different memory). Still nothing.
I switched graphics cards also just in case. Nothing.
Could the problem be with the PCI express slot on the motherboard ?
