20 Most Recent Biostar iDEQ 330G (IDEQ330G) Barebone Questions & Answers

As I recall, this model has one IDE channel on, which typically powered an optical drive. The manufacturer claims that it supports one IDE drive, in theory, you could set the IDE HDD on the second connector of the IDE cable (secondary slave), however, it may be that the Bios will not recognize this.

My own thoughts would be, as this has 2 SATA ports, to leave the IDE connection alone and for the Optical drive and put another SATA HDD on the other SATA connector.

If you need to use the IDE drive, you can get an IDE to SATA adapter and that would enable you to use it connecetd to the SATA connector

As to capacity, I'd assume it would run any size of HDD

Not sure how u shorted it out installing ram. Theres only 1 way the put it in and there should have been NO power on the board at the time. AND I'd like to know how you think the board is shorted out. What is happening? It's a very rare occurrence and there are other easy fix issues that might make a person think the board is fried. Let me know your answers to these questions so I can help further.

No, Biostar advertises that you should use low voltage memory on this board. My experience that when 1.5 volt memory is installed in a 1.35 volt system, it is not reliable. (Intermittent Crashes.)
You would have to increase the memory voltage, this is only possible on full blown gaming motherboards designed for overclocking the memory.
A j1900NH2 supports S states, but it does not support memory overclocking.

Some idea of your question would be good

Without you describing the problem it's impossible to suggest solutions, except purchasing another board. 6 months is a lot of time. I would get rid of this motherboard an bought another brand ( Gigabye, Asus are excellent brand names).

I went to the download drivers page of the BioStar website for your mobo here:
and the VGA driver for Vista and Windows 7 is the same one (the "x86" indicates 32-bit, but the driver looks to be the same for both 32 & 64 bit).
Your question about the AMD Athlon can be answered quite easily. It is a CPU and does not need any specific driver. You should however download and install the chipset drivers for the mobo.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
