If you still have your manual, see page 19. Set CPU External bus frequency (100MHz) as shown & CPU to bus use 5.5x = 550MHz.

You can download the manual here:
http://www.fic.com.tw/support/download.aspx?dl=motherboard%2fmanual%2fsocket7%2fva-503%2b%2fva-503%2ba4sh.zip&title=va-503%2ba4sh.zip&info=manual
There seem to be more setting after going over the manual.
Any of these power supplies will work with the FIC board. All come with the 20-pin ATX main power. Some come with 24-pin power connector that you just do not use.
As far as finding a power switch for an ATX power supply try looking to a Good Will store. Most places have old PC parts for sale cheep. or try here: http://www.trianglecables.com/atxcaspusbut.html

Good luck skivvynine!
Hope you find all this helpful.

I Need the jumper settings for the fic k8mc51g motherboard from a emachines desktop computer. Putting the motherboard in a custom case.


There is a 4-Pin Speaker connector that is not used by Gateway on the motherboard (right beside) the CMOS jumper settings (Pins).
The clear CMOS settings jumper block is right beside the speaker pins. You can use this jumper block to clear the CMOS RAM, which is powered by the onboard real-time clock button cell battery.
Pin 3 is indicated by the markings on the board.
Settings: Pins 1 and 2 covered = Normal Operation Pins 2 and 3 covered = Clear CMOS enabled.crazyeyes746.jpg

Do I plug in BOTH the 20+4 ATX power connector AND the 8 pin 12V connector on a gigbyte MB (MA790GPT-UD3h)?


Hi

You only need to plug the 20+4 ATX power connector and how about the 8 pin 12V connector? Well that is use only for legacy type of motherboard that use to require it.

Hope it helps..

Try this, reset the CMOS, but make sure that the power if fully turned off and the power cable connected to the power supply is disconnected. Change the jumper settings of the clr_cmos from 1-2 to 2-3 for approx. 10 secs. then return the jumper to 1-2. the locations is encircled on the image below.a55d1a2.jpg

Ax4per with 1.8GHz does not recognize new 2.8GHz processor. Socket 478. BIOS is current. Is it not plug and play?


Hi,

Does it POST and can you get into the BIOS? You need to set the FSB to 133MHz and the Ratio to 21x.

(I am assuming you did install the CPU correctly and installed the fan.)

If you can't get into the BIOS, you may need to reset it using JP14 on the motherboard.

Turn OFF power. Remove the AC power cord. Hold the power button in for 5 to 10 seconds. (This is done to discharge any capacitors.) JP14 normally is on Pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper on Pins 2 and 3 for approx. 10 seconds. Then place it back on pins 1 and 2. Connect the power cord and turn it on. This will set all the BIOS settiings to default and you should be able to set the FSB and Ratio.

Do you have a manual for the MB? you can get it from:

ftp://ftp.aopen.com/pub/manual/mb/ax4per/ax4per-ol-e.pdf

Thanks for using Fixya.

Old compaq presario new processor


The AMD K6 II / 350 has a 100 MHz bus speed and a 3.5 multiplier. I was online with a tech at HP and even they don't know, but if they send the motherboard manual as promised and it has the info I'll post a comment. They did say it can't be done in the BIOS. I can tell you often the major manufacturers used boards where the jumper locations were soldered and didn't even have pins to change the settings, making it pretty hard to upgrade the processor.

Do you see any jumpers on the board at all? Sometimes the multiplier & clock speed info is printed right on the board in tiny white letters.

Good luck.

I have a FIC VA 503+ motherboard in one of my computers. It has a 300 MHRZ AMD K6-2 processor in it right now. I would like to know the jumper settings for a 550 MHRZ processor. I would like to give this...


Posting pics on here is difficult. Fixya reduces them down so you can hardly see to read, so let me try to tell you.

CLK to 100 Mhz
CLK1-Pins 1 and 2
CLK2-Pins 1 and 2
CLK3-Pins 2 and 3

Multiplier to 5.5
FREQ1-Pins 1 and 2
FREQ2-Pins 1 and 2
FREQ3-Pins 2 and 3

Don't forget the CPU voltage jumper. If you comment back with the voltage I can tell you that also.

If you would prefer, I can email you scans of the pages you need. (I already scanned them. It's just that posting them reduces them too much to see clearly.)

BTW that was a good MB in its time. I had 2 of them. Still have one using a 500MHZ AMD running Windows XP Pro. It's a little slow though. :-)

Hard drive recognized as slave drive


You probably need the change the jumper on the hard drive itself. The jumper looks like a thin little cap that covers a set of pins on the back of the hard drive. You should see it next to when you power supply connects and most drives will usually have a diagram on how to change the jumper from a slave to a master.
