Question about Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard
I have a k7vm2 mother board i wish to know the best prosessor for it and also is it just a matter of changeing them or would i need to reinstall all windows #programme.
and also how do i make it faster for me to put vista on it .???
Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's:
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).
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.
