Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Check you Audio Sound properties and make sure the microphone is checked as a Recording Device. Click Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. You might also be able to click the megaphone that is located at the bottom right near the time.

You can talk till you are blue in the face, but if the Microphone is not selected as a recording device it won't work.

Some operating systems will allow you to do a self test of the microphone by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder

Turn off your laptop first, then remove the battery. Plug the charger then turn on your laptop wait until it loads completely then put back the battery on your laptop while it's on.

I hope it will work for you.

Although I've got a different type of MSI but I have where the "official guys" say there should be: at the back of it, maybe you need to remove the battery and look there under "S/N: xxxxxxxx"

that 1996 is not correct (its series name only)
MSI N1996 Motherboard P6NG Neo-Digital MS-7505
the bottom sticker on the mobo tells what it really is.

MSI motherboard, just bought ? used"?
ever see it work before.
did you go to msi.com and the manual on setups"?
are you using the onboard VGA port to a VGA monitor.
The monitor shows no signal means exactly that.
This motherboard has 1 power jacks, the big one 24 pins
and the 4pin at top left of the fan.
you must use PSU v2.2 or newer to get that 4 pin power.
covered on page 24 in your manual, here.

and CPU and fan, (correct)
and memory
and a power switch to the power switch jack.
next time post all stickers on mobo so we can see what it really is.
they made vast numbers of motherboards. a fact.

Well, you could uninstall anything related to the sound device. If you can, I suggest using the sound driver provided by the manufacturer. Let me know how it went, thanks.

Beeping mostly means it's trying to give an error code along. Listen to the amount of beeps and the duration of them. This is the error code that it tries to give on. Look up in the manual what the beeps mean and how to solve it.
