I purchased a MSI Via MB a few months back and a boxed Athlon 64 3000+. When I set up the system, the machine would not cold boot (blank screen and MB beeps). 30 or so seconds after powering up hitting the reset would cause a good boot and the system ran fine after that. If you shut down and restarted it would boot ok. I changed memory, video, basically everything and the problem remained. Recently I put in a new MSI NVidia board, along with a larger PS, and the problem persists. Finally, to narrow down the culprit, I took the old Via board and put a new Sempron 3100 in it. The board booted fine every time. So, do I have a CPU with a quirk in it? I wrote AMD and was told to contact them about the problem, which I plan to do shortly. If anyone has any similar experience or knowledge of this type problem, I would be very interested in hearing it.

Thanks in advance.

Defnitely follow up on the contact with AMD.
What did the MSI d-bracket w/ the LEDs show when you had the bad boot?
