MSI P45 DOA
so I picked up a new MSI P45 platinum from newegg today, it was a still birth
it has some lights on it to tell you what is going on with the board at post, but the only light that comes on is a red one right next to the IDE line, I'm hoping somebody has this board or one close to it from MSI that maybe can give me some insight, is it dead,
I did all the stuff as normal, hooked it up outside of case, with just CPU mem and video card, pretty red light is all I get,
everything else is good, I am using mem CPU PSU Video card in here, so it all works,
that red light is LED3 on the board manual says its the (system is power on)
I just want to make sure I'm not missing something before I start the MIA with newegg, yes I meant MIAi'm folding for techimo!! what are you doing?

are you sure newegg didn't just send you back the same board? its happened before to people, Motherboards, Video cards, etc...
could be a bad batch of boards too.i7 940//Corsair H60//EVGA X58 SLI LE//6GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz//2x EVGA GTX 560 Ti FPB SLI//NZXT Hale82 850W//CM 690 II Advanced//Win7 64//WD 74GB V-raptor, 750GB Black, 1.5TB Green

however if it is the same one they got it running so I would like to know how they did it,
it started right up I loaded win7 restarted for install a few times, but when I shut it down, it would not start again,
just the red light again,
I took the bat out i will leave it for awhile see what happens,
maybe this time I will go strait to MSI about it, looked on there forum sight alot of people have had this problem but it was from the Cmos butten in that back plate being pushed in by the I/O plate, but thats not what is doing this to me,i'm folding for techimo!! what are you doing?
