20 Most Recent MSI K9N6PGM2-V Motherboard Questions & Answers

I may be in the wrong arae but, are you referiing to MSN, and not MSI? MSN has been doing some wierd stuff with the mail lately, they blocked my account and I had to contact them through an e-mail, of course and, had to have a separate account as well to do so. Of course, I found out on a Friday and probobly waited for at least 5 days but, they made it possible for me to change my passwor and accsess the account. If this is the problem you are having, you will have to get another e-mail account such as Yahoo, e-mail them and wait it out. Good luck.
You really should have a second account anyway in case something like this happens, you can forward your mail to the main account.

MSI states that 7 beeps means "Virtual mode exception error "

Explanation: Virtual mode is one of the different modes that the processor can run in. The system is reporting an error when testing this mode.
Diagnosis: There is a problem related to the processor or motherboard. Note that this doesn't mean that the processor is necessarily dead, since the system won't boot at all with a dead processor.

Not knowing the price of either your processor or the board it is hard to say what to do for the best

Good luck

MSI Support > K9N6PGM2-V motherboard > Main Support page,


Hover your mouse cursor on the Download tab.

In the drop down list click on - Manual

Now click on the blue -> M7309V1.2.zip
Click on the country name nearest yours.

A small window will come up on the right -

Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last small window go to the file name next to the red Adobe PDF icon, and DOUBLE-click on it.

There is your motherboard manual in PDF file form.

( Plus + icon increases the view size when you click on it.
Minus - icon decreases the view size.

When I refer to a page number it will be for the PDF reader, and not the actual manual's page )

Go to Page 8.
Motherboard Layout

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
JFP2 is an additional header. To be discussed after JFP1.

JFP1 is on the Right/Bottom corner. It is placed Vertically.
(Parallel to the right bottom edge of the motherboard)

Above it's left corner is JUSB2. (Front Panel USB header 2)
Above JUSB2 is the SATA2 connector. To the left of the SATA2 connector is the SATA1 connector.
To the left of the SATA1 connector is the CMOS battery.

The contact pins are arranged in two columns.
4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.

Go to Page 14. JFP1 pinout, and JFP2 pinout, is at the Bottom of the page.

Starting on the Bottom going towards the Top, Right side;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Starting at the Bottom going towards the Top, Left side'
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. (Probably 5 Volts positive, and used by the factory only)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Below JFP1 is a header that is placed Horizontally. It is parallel to the Bottom edge of the motherboard. This header with 13 pins in it, is the JLPC1 header.
(Starting on left side at the Top row; 4 pins, no pin, 2 pins.
Starting on the left side at the Bottom row; 7 pins)

To the left of the JLPC1 header is the JFP2 header.
4 pins across the Top row, 3 pins across the Bottom row.

The top 4 pins across the top are for an internal speaker. Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes.
Starting on the Left side coming towards the Right, top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
No indication of polarity.
Believe pin 2 is for the Positive wire, and pin 8 is for the Negative wire.

Starting on the Left side coming towards the Right, Bottom row:
Pins 1, 3, and 5.

These pins are ONLY used for a Power On LED light, that has 3 wires.
Used for a dual color Power On LED.
(One example; Green Turbo, Yellow normal)

The rest of the pinouts are listed in the manual.

Have additional questions? Post in a Comment.
I also downloaded the manual.

Dont do it , it wont run cause voltage is different and you might damage both card and motherboard if you try.

I would suggest a SATA drive, but yes. It does.

This is more likely to do with the monitor than the computer.
Going into that specific graphics mode allows the monitor to power up properly and allow the now failing capacitors to settle enough to run it up into the other modes.
Try another monitor on your system, and if it reacts normally without having to hit the delete key, then we have to look at repairing the monitor.

Here's some tips on repairing the monitor if you have to. (if it's not the monitor, it's the video card, and you may need to look at replacing that...if you are using the onboard video, consider getting a video card, or look for bad caps on the motherboard - same as replacing bad caps in the monitor)

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for different brand, but same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Since you mentioned that you tried to remove everything, it's possible that your monitor is defective.
Try testing another monitor to your pc to prove what is wrong.

Hope it helps.
