    Your local dealer is correct. This motherboard will not accept Vista. There are no drivers for Vista. This is due to the particular type of CPU that this motherboard will accept. It is considered to be orphaned, meaning its abandoned. This CPU was superseded by AM2 CPUs.

    You can get an affordable replacement motherboard and CPU that will be better suited for this version of Vista you purchased. But, overall it will likely cost you a great deal more than the cost of the copy of Vista you purchased.

    My judgment is based on your selecting your motherboard at the K8V-MX. If this is not your motherboard please let me know.

    Regards,

I am using vista on amilo d7830 without any problem. the local dealer needs a slap under the ear for misleading you.
vista intsalls most of the drivers itself. only sound and modem drivers need to be installed and drivers provided for windows xp by fujitsu are compatible with vista. as regards the memory you can buy it from crucial in 50£ for 2gb and it does not need any drivers etc.
this note book has poor graphics card so aero score is "1". apart from that vista works like a charm.

Vista is a horrible operating system. It has many bugs and does not support older systems, cameras, scanners, printers, etc. You are much better off staying with XP. Believe me, I have many users with tons of Vista problems.

I want to increase the memory ram for my HP Pavillion a 335 w , on my research so far I found that the largest memory it takes is the 512, it already has 1 gyga, in it, so I assume it has 2 512, I would...


the maximum amount of RAM for that pc is 1GB so upgrading isn't possible if you wanted to upgrade the speed of the RAM the maximum speed is 333 MHz which is not very fast so i would assume that's what the current RAMs speed is.

Wish to increase cpu spped and memory


Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K7VM2&s=462
The Athlon XP 2600+ CPU is the highest CPU this board can support. (It will be hard to find one).
Main web site for the K7VM2: http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VM2

Honestly, ASRock does not have drivers for Vista. Some of the drivers listed for XP may work with Vista. Your best chance is to download & run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0
(Before installing Vista in to your system).
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=42b5ac83-c24f-4863-a389-3ffc194924f8&DisplayLang=en
Vista, any version needs at least 1GB of memory. Two GB is recommended. After running Upgrade Advisor you will know if your ASRock motherboard can handle Vista. You should be able to upgrade to Vista (Over-writing XP) but only if your system passes the Upgrade Advisor.
Your best bet would be to buy a new system with Vista on it. Your ASRock board is just too old for Vista. You'll save money upgrading to a more supportive PC.

Good luck thefuncouple!
Vista is not for everyone, many users end up going back to XP.
Thank you for using fixya.

OS Upgrade Issue


Stick with XP. I bought a laptop that had Vista in it, and it runs and performs more faster with Win Xp Pro. It was slower and too confusing with Vista.
