MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Dead? Help!

Hey all,
Well, the other day I was on my computer playing a game when my mobo fan started making an odd noise (as if switching rpm), so I took off the side of my case and took a look inside. Everything seemed to be functioning properly, then I switched my cpu fan speed via the pci slot speed control. As I switched from High-Medium-Low, I noticed that the fan actually slowed to the point where I could see the blades spinning, at least for a second or so. I found that rather odd, seeing as how I've never seen a fan (especially a cpu fan) slow to the point that I could see the blades spin. Anyway, a couple of hours later, I shut down and went to sleep.
The next day I had my comp on for about maybe 30mins to an hour or so when suddenly I heard an alarm from the computer speaker, so I was like, ":censored:?" since I had never heard it before. It was evidently the temperature warning, which I had set to 70C. So I shut down within 15 seconds and opened up the side of my case.
I noticed that the cpu fan wasn't moving at all (usually I'd open the case in time to see the spin-down). So I turned the computer back on and the fan didn't budge, so I immediately powered down, assuming that the CPU Fan had died. Later on, I hooked the fan itself up to a free power cord in my sister's computer and booted up, along with the speed controller, flipping from medium to high to low without any problems.
I then did screwed the fan back to the heatsink in my comp and booted up. I went into the bios an noticed that the rpm was 8k, which is way too high for my fan (normally 5k). So i began switching from high, medium, to low once again, then I saw that the rpm reader in the bios went to 0. So I looked back in the side of my case and saw that the cpu fan was once again dead. At this point I concluded that it was the fan and was about to order the Volcano 12.
A day later I placed the fan inside my sister's computer on a free cord, yet again, and yet again, it worked fine.
I once again put it in my computer to test and this time it worked fine, even while switching between speeds. Unfortunately, I then noticed that the mobo fan was not moving, then began to move.
Well, I'm guessing now that it's simply the motherboard that has a short, since both the motherboard fan as well as the cpu fan have randomly been dying the past few days. The motherboard fan; however, has switched rpm many times in the past from 5k to 3k.
It could also be a PSU problem, but I have Antec 400watt psu and it's been working fine for the past 2 years, so I doubt it. I've had the motherboard for a little over a year. I upgraded my cpu from 2200+ to 3000+ in July. That's also when I bought the cpu fan. The motherboard fan began fluctuating in rpm noticeably back in April or May of this year.
Yesterday, I used the computer again and had it on for about 2 hours or so and I had speedfan monitoring the temps and the rpm. The temps stayed relatively stable: 48 cpu, 44 mobo.
But alas, the RPMs were totally [blame me for the swear filter] up. At one point, both the mobo and cpu fan speeds were reading 0, even though both continued to spin within the case and the temps remained the same. Then after 30mins or so, they cpu fan began reading again at 40,000-42,000rpm, which is obviously incorrect, seeing as the fan is rated for around 5k. I got/get the same readings in the bios, both fans reading at 0rpm as they continue to physically spin.
Also, during a number of times that I've started up the comp within the past few days, the motherboard northbridge fan wasn't spinning at all and didn't begin to until a few minutes into my windows session.
Also, I took out the NB fan and noticed a slight crack in the back of it.
I was considering simply just buying the Volcano 12 and the MSI K7N2 Delta2 Platinum rather than RMAing the mobo. Then perhaps an Antec 550W psu, if necessary.
Any ideas what I should replace and in which order? And has anybody else encountered any similar problems with this mobo (at least with the mobo rpm, which has been a prob for about 6months on and off)?
I bought the mobo along with a 2200+ in July of 2003. I upgraded the ram from 256 to 512 in April 2004 (which is around the time I started hearing rpm probs with the mobo fan) and I upgraded the cpu in July of 2004
Many Thanks!

Could be a fluctuating PSU that's breaking down power to the MB. You have a whole lot of components dragging that PSU down. With what you have in your rig I would run either an Antec or Enermax 550W. Best way to be sure is to borrow a PSU or buy one from a store with a good return policy so that you can return it if indeed it turns out to be the MB. If I don't have your board here on my bench to test the only thing I can suggest to you is to swap out components unfortunately.

    ....d-bracket from MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR is 1,3,4 red and 2 green. Which is according the the manual "Memory Detection Test"-if the memory module is damaged or not installed properly.
    Why woudl a memory suddenly not work?
    I know I was adjusting bios for this and that....  
    I think just before this happened.. I adjusted something on agp setting... but what ahs that got to do with memory?
    COuld it be the mobo or memory or the video card???
    pls help....

    clear cmos jumper jbat1.
    also try safe mode jumper j10 ans j11.
    also try to reseat memory and dont trust the dbracket to 100%.
    it can show wrong sometimes.
    COuld it be the mobo or memory or the video card???
    when you got it running then run to check memory,
    also what psu do you have ?
    post max amps on 3.3v 5v and 12v rails.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Help Please.

    Hi all
    I have a MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR motherboard that im putting together and I have a question.
    In the middle of the socket where the CPU sits is a small CPU thermal protection sensor, my question is that the sensor is higher than the socket and will be touching the CPU when it is inserted is this normal or should sensor be bent downward so not to be in direct contact with the CPU?
    I would not be asking this question if not for someone telling me not to put any external case sensor on the CPU direct only on the heat sink but in this case its built into the motherboard itself. Best to be safe than sorry I thought.
    Many thanks

    Hi Andy
    I too have just bought an MSI K7N2-ILSR. On mine the sensor is bent down so as not to contact the cpu. Was like this when I bought it so I would suggest that it is not supposed to touch processor

  • MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Nforce2 (Socket A) Motherboard (MB-003-MS) Features NF2 chip

    I tried to install 3 of the Crucial Ballistix Tracer (1 Gig Each) in this motherboard (MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR Nforce2 (Socket A) Motherboard (MB-003-MS) Features NF2 chipset) and it will not run stabilly no matter what I tried. Is this a bios conflict with the memory? If so, are there any new bios updates? I have tried cas settings and voltage settings but nothing works. It will how ever run perfectly with only 2 sticks in single channel mode. It will not run same 2 sticks in dual channel mode. Anyone have any ideas? Anyone know of any new motherboards with maybe NFORCE 4 Chipset that support all 3 sticks of this memory and an AGP graphics card? Im thinking of a new motherboard but I still need to have AGP and SATA.
    Barton 3200 core proc.
    System has ran fine for a solid year until I tried new memory. Please help!

    Ok I tried to use relaxed FSB by -10 and relaxed mem timings but still unstable due to the motherboard trying to use dual channel memory. If you can modify the bios to where it will not have the capability of dual channel memory I truly believe it will work. Will u try this for me? I would greatly appreciate it as I am really not ready to spend all the money on new equipemtn when this suits my needs for now.
    sure but as i said before this is gona be experimental and risky. Here we go:
    MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR Experimental MOD E1(Disable Dual CH ability)
    Procedure is automated in best possible safest way to BIOS update.
    Prepare a blank diskette in a good condition(newest one etc.)
    ]execute file under XP will make bootdisk with automated BIOS update procedure. when diskette is ready, reboot PC and boot from FDD(floppy), wait a bit, then you will be asked for final confirmation about BIOS update process, press a key to proceed, after BIOS update is complete, ensure that you got successfully output message from flash program. then power down your PC, remove power cord from the PSU, hit power button several time to drain caps electrify, touch with hands some metal for ES discharge, and Clear CMOS.
    pull back power cord, power up your PC, when you see CMOS checksum error,(expected msg) hit F1 to continue to re-build DMI pool data, then reboot and enter in BIOS, LOAD BIOS DEFAULT, and SAFE AND EXIT.
    NOTE: Ensure your PC is stable before proceed with BIOS update.
    NOTE: Use it at own risk, chance of failure is big, cannot guarantee results and safest as provisional mode which can guarantee it will work stable with features. also cannot test it personally before give you. (don't have mobo anymore)
    Using it may end with dead mainboard (BIOS chip re-flash will be required, if somethink goes wrong)

    I ended up giving up on it for the time being, just using my SMC NIC. Would be quite interested in finding out what the problem is though.
    Anyone else in the same boat?
        Your problem is not the same, SiliconMan is trying to connect with a dial-up modem not LAN. Your problem sounds like it may be configuration, do a search on this post, I'm sure you will find people with onboard LAN troubles. It's hard to troubleshoot though since you didn't provide any info about your computer. Good Luck  

  • Data corruption on MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Hi all,
    Just got my new MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR up and running.
    Got some issues with the memory running at 200mhz while the Barton core of my Athlon Xp 2600+ was running 166mhz, this had to be 1:1 (thx forum  )
    While running the default bios settings with cpu/mem at 166/166 fsb everything is stable as hell. I have been running Prime95 for 2 days now and using the system for dvd ripping/encoding, UT2004 gaming etc.
    Then the overclocking began   I'm using the standard AMD cooler that came with my boxed Xp2600+ so I didn't expect an FSB of 200mhz.
    I stopped at an FSB of 190mhz...been crunching Prime95 for 18 hours now and again very stable.
    Now comes the problem : Sometimes I get crc errors when installing a game or decrypting a dvd!! But how can this be? Prime95 is stable at this 190fsb overclock.
    When using an FSB of 166mhz no data corruption or crc errors.
    What can this be? It's not the cables because they're all the same as in my old setup which was running (ahum...walking) stable. PCI/AGP speeds are locked when overclocking...
    Only thing I can think of is the power supply. I've read in a warning post from Bas that the Q-Tec 550w psu I have is crap. So my guess is PSU, but maybe it's something else I'm forgetting...Any suggestions??
    The stupid thing is when I'm not overclocking I don't have the data corruption problems, but I'm still using the same crappy Q-Tec 550w PSU.

    Hmmm, that's curious. On the MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR product page Kingston memory is recommended  
    Ok, did a Memtest86 v1.11 pass at cpu/dimm 166/166 - no problems whatsoever. I think using Prime95 would have revealed memory problems...but will do another pass with cpu/dimm at 190/190.
    Can overclocking affect the Promise Raid Controller?? It should be locked like the PCI/AGP but who knows...
    Well, I still have to replace my PSU but I'm not 100% sure that this is the problem. What PSU would you recommend? ...and I'm also thinking about replacing the standard CPU cooler, any advice is welcome  

  • FLASH BIOS MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR ????????

    I am trying to flash the BIOS of my K7N2 Delta-ILSR board. I follwed all the instructions from the MSI Web but I can't get it going. I booted from Win ME & Win98 but could not get into C: drive. So I used Command Prompt from Window to get  into the C: drive and follwed the Flash Bios Procedures. I keep getting the message: AwdFlash No Support WinNT/2000/XP OS
    I got problem with the temp after I updated the BIOS. I wanted to flash it back to the old Bios. Please help me out

    hi i have this configuration on my pc:

    athlon xp 3200+
    seagate 120 gb sata 7200.7 hd
    ati radeon 9800 pro excalibur ice q
    i have 2 problems : the first one is that sometimes windows display me a blue screen with certain problem related to ati2dg.dll i think that problem is beacause the video card so i decided to update the bios , in the live update page from msi says that the bios 7.6 fix a bug with ati vga cards but after flashing and updating to bios v7.6 that blue screen with the same error still appearing so i dont know what else to do to solve the problem and the second one is that when i start any game or make the processor to work a little mostly related with video stuff the case speaker start to beep and the pc lags until he restarts with no reason i really dont know why if u can help me thank you

    In the BIOS try setting the AGP to 4X and disable Sidebanding. Then set the AGP Apeture to 256. See if that helps.
    Make sure you are running the lastest   nVidia nForce Drivers and the latest ATI Catalyst Drivers
    Take Care,
    P.S. There is still a possibility that the Kingston RAM is the problem.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570) BSOD problems grrr

    I recently purchased this board and although it is an awesome product, I'm having a problem with BSOD's when I play a game for a certain period of time
    MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR  (7.6 BIOS)
    AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton
    512MB (2x256MB) Samsung PC-2700 DDR memory (2.5-3-3-6 1T)
    MSI 128MB GeForce4 Ti 4200 (4X AGP)
    NVIDIA nForce on-board sound
    Western Digital 80GB drive w/ 8MB cache
    MSI X48 CD/CD-RW/DVD combo drive
    Windows XP Professional SP1
    Turbolink 420watt (came with case)
    +3.3V is 28A
    +5V is 40A
    +12V is 18A
    So what happens is I get a STOP error during the game that shows the kmixer.sys driver as the culprit. Sometimes it's accompanied by PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA too. I read somewhere that kmixer.sys has to do with windows audio and that it's a 3rd party driver issue or a memory issue. I'm using the latest NVIDIA 3.13 nForce platform drivers. I ran Memtest lastnight for 12 hours straight and 0 errors. I'm thinking the memory may not be compatible with the board nor dual channel, is this possible? I have also tried several different drivers for both video and chipset including MSI's own and I still get the kmixer.sys BSOD when playing games. My previous motherboard was an MSI KT3 Ultra2-R (MS-6380E) which I had no issues with. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
    I just tried to play a game with audio disabled and it crashed this time with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL with nv4_mini.sys as the problem. My IRQ table shows some sharing, but device manager shows no conflicts.

    Ok I tried running the DTM-CB3 module which is nForce2 approved at 3-4-4-11 2T timings and experienced the same result even at 2.6 and 2.7v. I tried both in dual-channel and same thing happened. However, I downloaded a program called Prime95 and ran the CPU torture test and the system returned a fatal error within the first few minutes. CPU Temp was at 57 C and the warning beep (set to 60C though) sounded intermittentley which is strange. I let it cool down then ran the torture test again and about 5min. later the system either seized completely or the program crashed. IE has also crashed randomly on me. I did this several times, before trying a different FSB/DRAM ratio. So I left the system at 200 FSB and used a 6:5 ratio so my memory was running at DDR333 and processor was a 3200+. I ran Prime95 again and the system locked up just as it did the other times.  So after I did this a few times with consistent results. I went back and set the FSB to 166 and tried a 5:6 ratio so the memory was DDR400 and processor was the normal 2800+. I ran it again and to my suprise it passed all the tests and after an hour of this, I tried a game and that was perfectly fine as well. I checked the temps and CPU was only 45 C this time. So I'm thinking the processor can't handle anything above 50C or it's just plain overheating. I ordered a Thermaltake Silent Boost HSF today which is tested up to 3400+ so this should fix my problem. If not, then I'm going to replace the memory with a 512MB Geil PC3200 golden dragon dual-channel kit.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR - Noisy Grinding Motherboard Fan

    The Motherboard Fan on my MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR has started to make a terrible grinding noise and I was hoping someone could offer some help on how to replace it.
    Some of the questions I have are -
     + Is the Motherboard Fan screwed on or glued on?
     + Could I replace it with a suitable heatsink (no fan)?*
     + If it is glued on, what is the best way to remove it?
     + If it is glued on, could I just unplug it and stick a new fan on top of the existing one?
     + Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do to fix it?
    * I was looking at a Zalman Motherboard Heatsink from
    Thanks in advance, Jason.

  • MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR and Serial ATA Drive

    I've got a very strange problem....
    Yesterday i have installed my new motherboard (MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR) but i have a problem with the SATA feature.
    I've got two drives : one 40GB ATA (Western Digital) and one 160GB SATA also from Western Digital.
    My SATA drive is recognized by the FastTrak BIOS (v2) but i'm unable to reinstall Windows XP Professional (with SP2 Slipstreamed) because Windows Setup didn't recognize the SATA disk. I have loaded the Promise Serial ATA Drivers at the begin of the installation (F6)...
    I have also tried 2 different versions of the Promise SATA Drivers; the one that cames with my motherboard CD, and the most recent from the MSI website. But with both drivers the same result. How can i get my Serial ATA Harddisk get work with this motherboard?
    Any help will be appreciated. 
    PS : My specifications are the following:
    MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR (Rev. 7.4)
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+
    2x 256MB Kingston PC3200 Dual Channel
    ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb (R360)
    Western Digital 40GB ATA
    Western Digital 160GB SATA

    Thanks for your reply Richard,
    My motherboard didn't came with a floppy (I have bought an bulk version..) I have created a SATA floppy by myself. (I have got the drivers from the motherboard cd..) These drivers are also good, right?
    Which type of RAID Array should i create? Because i have only one SATA drive.....
    I think the "auto" feature is the easiest way?

  • Strange phantom restarts on MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Just wanted to see if I could get opinions on this. My MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR mobo runs real nice now, but still, on occasion, very rare and intermittently, it will just restart. Not likely a heat issue, as the temps are nice and low. Also, not just happenning when I'm playing a game or anything strenuous. Did it once while checking email, once during install of an MS Office program, and once during a game. Could it be my old Gforce 2 MX 200 video card, as the picture sometimes gets wavy (like fine waves on an ocean), and the old computer it was in did similar things, or is it common with this mobo.
    MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR
    Athlon XP 2500+ Barton
    1026 MB Kingston DDR RAM (2x512 Dual)
    Gforce 2 MX 200 AGP 4x
    WD 60 GB 7200 RPM

    I had errors on test 4 not 5 with Winbond 2-512 Dual Channel called Hardcore Cooling and they said that getting errors with memtest86 may not mean that the ram is defective, it may not be compatible with the memory comtrol and they had me RMA it back. I also was not able to run the ram stable at there advertized rate of 6 2 2 2 it was only stable at 8 3 3 2.5
    I replaced it with OCZ after talking to there Tech support people about compatiblety problems with the Nvidia chipset. Sense I installed the OCZ I only had one ram reboot and when I checked I was running the voltage at 2.5 and OCZ said that I should be running at 2.6. They also said that I could run it up to 2.8 with no worry.
    Look on manufactor web site to see what ram timing yours should be running at and what voltage, Auto setting in Bios is not always the best setting.
    If it still not stable at manufactor spec than I'd talk to who ever you bought it from about replacing it or refund and buy something thats on the Nvidia compatible list.
    Most ram manufactors have a list of motherboards that there ram will work on but sometimes the newer boards like K7N2 or not listed yet as still working that out.

  • MSI K8T Neo2 F vs. MSI K7N2 Delta ILSR

    Hi there !
    I have an amd Athlon XP 3200+ overheating problem, and contacted the technical support of the shop where the processor and CPU was coming from.
    Since they do not have any XP 3200+ to replace mine, they propose me to replace fro free :
    - the XP 3200+ by an AMD Athlon 64 3200+
    - my actual MSI K7N2 delta ILSR by an MSI K8T Neo2 F
    ... and this for free.
    Since I do not know this new motherboard that has been proposed, I'd like to have advice on if this is a good deal ?!?
    My actual system has :
    - an Aluminium case with 2x 12cm FAN's
    - 2 IDE hard drives
    - 1 SATA hard drive
    - TWINX Corsair XMS 2x256MB PC 3200L (Extreme low latency)
    - an AGP 8x video card
    - An Antec True Power 480W.
    will the new motherboard fit with this configuration?
    Many thanks for your input !

    Not really, unless you really want to oc your cpu. The K8T boards aren't that good in OC-ing. But still, some is possible and you'll be sure that the board is as steady as a rock.
    For a moment I thought you were talking about a Neo board ... but I just saw it's a Neo2. That means Socket 939 -> dual channel RAM.
    The only risk you have now, is that your RAM won't work in dual channel with the CPU. But that's not really a board-problem, more a CPU/RAM-controller related problem. But then, it's still a great offer and chances are good that it will work. If you run into any trouble, RAM-related, just flash bios to version 1.9 and you will probably be just fine.

  • Parallels or a PC for Games?

    I have an iMac from 2011 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 / 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3: I thought that instead of buying a new windows machine that it might be more prudent to get parallels with Win7 or something in order to play the game Wolfenstein from 2009, but I'
