I want to upgrade the mother board in my Vaio PCV-RZ44G Desktop so that I can run Windows 8. What board forms are compatible and is an Intel I3 or I5 CPU better?


You would be better off applying the money to a new computer. You are opening "Pandora's Box" . You will end up with a old case with ALL new components. That may or may not work, A.K.A., "pain and heartache".

Earlier i had ASUS P5G-MX motherboard & 2.0 GHz Core 2 duo Processor.I upgrade my Motherboard to Asus P5KL-AM/PS & then i have a black screen with my 2.0 ghz processor, But i tried 2.8 ghz Core 2...


HI,

The only Thing To Do, is view both Motherboards, user Manuals.
To see The boards CPU Support List.
It could be to do with, certain Motherboards Supporting, certain CPUs.
I.e a 533mhz cpu, would not run on a Motherboard that supports 400mhz. The Systems Bios, May cause Other Problems.
If your getting a Black Screen, is it a possible Graphics/Ram Problem, Rather Than The CPU ??

Hardware upgrade required for autocad 2009


Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Grafix card upgrade


Sure go over to www.tigerdirect.com and check out the new boards, I like the nforce boards, and I tend to favor Asus boards, but the Gigabite and Abit are all top of the line boards. Look at the combo's on that site, they run specials, like last week I saw a really good nforce board with the quad core Intel processor and 2 gigs of ram for around $2-3.00, if you just need a board be careful that you get the same type of ram that you want, they have some high end asus boards for as high as $700.00 but that is just nuts for two hundred you can get a pretty sick board, also see if your stuff is compatable before you buy it. Like your card and stuff. Good luck and have fun, Peace, Gym

Motherboard shuts down before booting !


You should clarify this a bit more, but please make sure all of your fans are plugged in and the no jumpers are set to over-clock the processor.Also, double check that everything is fundamentally compatible.

Asus p5b-mx motherboard no display no beep


when ever you are getting the beep messages after you remove the ram card and connecting the tower to the power cord it shows that mother board is functiong normally so no problem with the mother board .try this steps so that it may resolve the issue.


1. No Boot:
. Check the cables
. Check with the socket on the wall as well as surge protector
. Swap the power cable with the monitor
. Power drain ( after removing all the cables press and hold the power button on the tower for 10-15 sec and the re-insert the power cable and connect the monitor and check)
Monitor does not power on
Check with the power cable
Check with the cable from the monitor
Swap the cable
Power drain
If the cust gets the power on the monitor and even the tower but still if he cannot view anything on the screen

MSI has two boards P4M900M3-F, P4M900M3-L.

Both of this will support your CPU

Hi im David,

1. To start to buying a computer, you need a Standard ATX case, they sell only ATX cases so you can choose one at the shop that suits you. Then you might want to get a power supply because the pne that comes with the case will not supply enought power. You would want at least 550W. I recomment the Coolermaster 660W.

2. You will then need to think what Brand CPU your going to use. These days AMD is not making the best CPU's So i recommend Intel. Based on what you want to do and what the shop has, i would get the Dual Core E7200 (2.53 GHz 3MB Cache) or the E8400 (3.0GHz 6MB Cache). There is no point for buying a Quad core as it is expensive and not many games can use the full extent of the CPU.

3. Once chosen teh brand on the CPU you have to buy a Motherboard that supports the CPU, they only sell One type of Intel CPU and that the LGA 775 so any Intel Motherboard will work with your CPU. I would get Gigabyte GA-EP43-DS3 at $125. Dont bother buying anything higher than $155 unless you got the money and really need it. I psersonally use GA-EP43-DS3 because it has all the features i need like Dual Graphics (not SLI), 3 firewire connections, 12 USB ports, 7.1 Surround Sound, 6 SATA Ports and 4 ram slots.

4. Once gotten your motehrboard you will need RAM. They sell Kingstom and Corsair DDR2 Ram at speed of 800MHz. Corsair is a much better brand but you wont notice much difference between the two of them. 2GB is more than enought if your going to run XP but you will need 4GB for Vista. get 4X1GB and you will get faster speeds than 2X2GB.

5. Getting a Hard Drive. Depending what you are going to store on your Hard drive, you can get different sizes. The bigger the size the cheaper it is per gigabyte. I would get a 500GB. Western Digital and Samsung is quieter than Segate but isnt as fast in speed but you wont notice the difference. Make sure you get 3.5" or if u want you can get a 2.5" but it wont fit anywhere in your case so you will have to rest it soemwhere. It still can be plugged it to your motherboard. I use a 2.5: with my Desktop PC because it reduces noise.

6. Getting an optical Drive. Make sure you get a DVD Burner, they are only $40. YOu may consider getting a Blu-Ray Drive so you can watch Blu-ray movies on your cmputer or use your Computer as a Blu-ray player and plug it in your LCD TV. Blu ray will cost $175 for LG or $215 for Pioneer. Pioneer is better.

7. Next you will need a PCI-Express graphics card. For your games the minimum i would buy would be Gigabyte Nvidia 8400GS. I recommend Gigabyte Nvidia 9600GT 512MB.

8. You may want to buy a monitor, you can choose since its just a monitor.


You can choose any preheripals such as mouse and keuboard. Wireless mouse is recommend but theres no point for wireless keyboard unless you plan to sit a few meters away from the computer.

Once bought you can get the shop to buid it for you or you can buid it yourself.
When building yourself, make sure you wear a Electrostatic Discharge Wrist band to prevent damage. Or simply touch the metal of the case to get rid of the static. Do not touch any electrical compunet pins such as CPU pins and CPU socket Pins.

Once made you will need to install an operating system. You can buy one or Download a pirated version.
