I recently disassembled my pc. I removed all but my MSI KT4 ULTRA MS-6590 motherboard and cpu. I did this in order to clean it with air duster and once finished with cleaning realized I had made a mistake by not memorizing the order of the jumpers to the power.

I found through trail and error what I believe to be the correct order of them now because in any other order it begins to boot up and quickly shuts down in about 5-10 seconds or nothing at all. In the order I have them in now it boots up (lights but no beeps) and does not shut down but nothing shows up on the monitor (I am getting signal to the monitor though) and the fan might be run faster than usual. I also believe that the hard drive is not spinning.

I've tried all I know in order to fix this including exchanging all parts other than the cpu and motherboard and they all seem to function fine in other computers. It clearly seems that I have a motherboard issue but have no clue what it is. Can anyone help me? Thank you.

I would suggest you download the manual and confirm you have the connections plugged in correctly.

Start with just the motherboard, cpu (with heatsink), RAM and video card. See if that works, if so add the rest bit by bit and if anything causes it to fail you know what is causing the problem.

Alright, this is bizarre.

I downloaded the manual.

Tried it's setup(it differs from mine) and got nothing.

But I also tried my setup with where they say to place the speaker wire and got a beep though it quickly shutdown.

I believe the manual you gave me is not for my motherboard.

It's for version 1.5, mine is 1.0

Will that make much of a difference?

It mentions wires that don't exist in mine.

Like a 2nd Power LED that I don't have.

Still stumped, and having difficulty finding the 1.0 version manual.

I think version 1.5 is the manual version rather than the mobo version - could be wrong though!

You could try this version of the manual.

Don't worry about the 2 power LEDs, it just gives 2 options for plugging power LEDs in, you don't have to use them all.

I would suggest removing all the cables for the front panel, and just have the power switch connected to start with - the others aren't really necessary. Once you've got the PC working this way, you can figure out the rest one by one.
