Thread: Boot failure, BTFS and xfs, kde

    The system won't boot at all. The monitor light changed color briefly (red --> blue). Then turned back to red. It doesn't even show the bios screen.

    The original msi was showing blue scan lines on the bios flash screen. Soon after, it failed. I sent the motherboard back to about < 1 year ago. I got back a "refurbished" motherboard. Fixed motherboard. The replacement motherboard was at least about 3.5 years old. It was showing some of the same blue lines before it failed.

    I did check all the motherboard connections. I replaced the video card with one I know works. No successful boot. Yes, all these action with the power off and unplugged.

    I'm having it checked by a professional soon. We came to the same conclusion over the phone. The motherboard is "dead as door-nail", "a rotting corpse". It's unlikely that they will get the msi motherboard working.

    So, thanks for everyone's help.



    Just one last question. Are these motherboard opensuse 15 compatible?

    Those were the gparted reports (latest version) after failing the fix the hard drive. I am 99% sure that the cause was the failing motherboard.


    Being paranoid about computer security. That's a good thing.

    I'm getting off topic. Thanks to all for the help.
