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.

Best supported processor for gaming?


For CPU upgrade it is hard to say without more information. These machines can have several different mother boards. Take a look at the mother board and find a Model number. With what you gave it looks like it runs a Pentium 4 641.

However, when systems get slow they may need a clean out. I use CCleaner to clean excess files and the registry out. But make sure to have a backup.

Other then this speed for gaming depends on what type of CPU, memory (RAM), motherboard, etc. that you have. There are so many products on the market, so exact details are needed to see what is slowing you down. Also, if frame rate, FPS, is an issue then, Do you have a video card that is not integrated on the motherboard?

Hi Please check the Processes From Task Manager window - Check how much is the Memory Usage - There will be Lot of Programs running - Check the one which is taking the Max and Right click on that Program and End Process - Remove the Program which is causing the Problem
- Better Run the Registry Cleaner tool and clean the Registry - Also check Run the PC Virus Check and remove the Viruses - Increase the Total Paging File Size by increasing the Virtual Memory .

Hi,

You may be able to just swap out the motherboard for a K7VM4 motherboard but some of the specs are different like the chipset and graphics etc.

K7VM4 specs as follows >>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM400 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • Hybrid Booster - a safe overclocking feature
  • FSB 333/266/200, DDR 333/266/200
  • Integrated UniChrome 3D Graphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 8X/4X 1.5V
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100 LAN and 5.1-Ch Audio.
K7VM2 specs as follows >>>>>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM266 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • DDR 266/200
  • Integrated ProSavarage8 3DGraphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 4X/2X universal.
  • Supports both DDR and SDRAM memory modules to provide you best flexibility and save your cost.
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100LAN and Audio.

As you can see the graphics and chipsets are different although the processor sockets are the same.

This could cause problems if you are going to plug the hard drive to another board but saying that is is possibe and has been done before.

This is a chance you take when you swap out a board for a different motherboard although i suspect that the transition should go smoothly.

A fairly old motherboard like K7VM4 or K7VM2 will not cost that much these days. You will find both motherboards for sale on eBay.



Regards.

If your motherboard supports ECC, and you can afford the much-higher cost of ECC RAM, then buying/using ECC is "best".

Note that "buffered" memory is much slower than "unbuffered" memory.
