Some ATX boards have an extra screw about mid-board, under the RAM slots.

I know the mod on GSKill forums who builds PCs professionally and he said he won't even use a MSI board unless the customer insists on it due to their lack of support and crappy products. Your AMD MSI board is a stroke of luck I think.
I have built all my desktops myself and build for other people
MSI is not really that bad all manufacturers has bad models.. i had batch of gigabyte motherboards that failed a lot.. had asus motherboardas that failed too..
Really it depends on model revision and lots of other things luck too. lots of people say asrock motherboards are bad but i have not seen them fail more than any other manufacturers mb.
it is not luck to have good MB because thats like 90% chance or so.. its unlucky to get failing one

OK so I'm trying to load my W7 into my optical drives but they light but don't open to inset the disk? Checked my connections both sata and power and they are good.

Use the paper clip trick. Insert it into the little hole in the drive and push to open the tray.

I'm not sure how that can happen. Most connectors are keyed in some fashion to insure proper installation. Please explain.

Tell me about it only a close look revealed the issue. The latch that secures the cable was reversed and the cable just slipped on and off with ease, reversing it made the connection snap and voila.

I would mark that with a felt tip pen by drawing a line on the connectors when they are plugged in correctly so it can't happen again.
