Changing motherboard language

Hi. I have this cpu (kind of old one). It's an IBM P3, 866MHz, 128MB SDRAM with 20GB hard disk. I'm trying to format it. My problem is, the IBM cpu came from Japan so, the language in the motherboard also in Japan ;-0 I've been trying to change the language to English but i don't know how.
Do anybody know how to do it (changing the Japanese language in bios to English)
I know, some of you might say that i should get a new cpu but to me i just wanna use the IBM as my backup.
Any kind of help will be appreciated. Thanks guys...

You can go to the manufacturers website and look for a BIOS update flash .. but unfortunately since you nor I know Japanese we cannot get into the BIOS to see if it can just be changed there. Most BIOS have language settings but you gotta know the current one in order to switch to another.

What kind of memory can I use in my 6282-75u


IBM 300GL 6282-75u

IBM = Manufacturer

PC300 = Series

PC300 GL = Subseries

6282 = Machine Type

75u = Model

Intel Pentium processor or Intel Pentium with MMX technology, and max frequency rate ('Speed') is 200Megahertz. (200MHz)
Woo-hoo!

Two ram memory slots.
EACH slot can hold a maximum amount of ram memory -> 64MB

TOTAL ram memory amount for motherboard is 128MB (Woo-hoo!)

Ram memory is SDR Sdram. Commonly, but mistakenly, just referred to as Sdram.

Has 168 gold plated contact pins. 84 on each side.
Two Locating Notches on the bottom of the ram memory module.
(Two Side Notches. One on each side)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SDR_SDRAM-1.jpg

Non-ECC and 100MHz as shown above. (PC100) [ DIMM ]

I don't know if you can just use a 128MB ram memory module ('Stick'), in ram memory Slot 1, or not.
Me?
I would try it. May have to reboot up to 4 times for BIOS to recognize the ram memory. May NOT have to.

(PS.
You have a D.I.P. switch on the motherboard. SW1
Has 4 dip switches, numbered 1 through 4.
The positioning, (ON or OFF), determines the 'speed' support for the Processor.

I use i845ITE8712 mainboard. My PC is very slow.It takes 5 minutes to boot completely.I use Win XP Prof, Intel P4 processor. In spite of proper maintenance using Adv Sys Care and CCleaner, Auslogic reg...


Hello,
Friends
You have Intel i845-ITE8712 chipset with 1.7GHz cpu. I will just upgrad the SDRAM from 256 MB to 1GB (two 512MB 133MHz DIMM SDRAM).
You can install 2.4/2.6 400 MHz You will gate more performance.
Or can install 2.8 400 celeron


Follow the installation guide

Will ibm rev1.6 motherboard will support DDR2 RAM ??????


Check the RAM slots -- in the "channel", there are small vertical "blocks", so that only *ONE* type of RAM (SDRAM, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3) will match-up the "slots" amidst the gold pins on the RAM.

Given that it's a ThinkCentre/NetVista motherboard at 400 Mhz:
http://www.shopping.com/xPO-IBM-SYSTEM-BOARD-W-O-POV-02R4087

with a Pentium 4 CPU, it's very-likely that it _only_ supports DDR1 RAM -- it's simply too old to support DDR2.

Longer Boot time after upgrading the Hard drive


Hi,

first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.

Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !

If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.

If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).

Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.

I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too!
As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.

regards.

SDRAM REPLACEMENT


No not compatible! Your system is obsolete, almost impossible to upgrade anything. Socket 478, P4 cpu stuff, is the oldest system with any chance of upgrading or maintenance.Get a 'barebones' new system for $250/300 from the Inet [ ebay or simillar ]/ You will then get some value from the cost of the windows Xp if it is the full version or alternatively you have both original OS disc and windows Xp ugrade disc. If what you buy has an IDE hard drive. you can also install your current hard drive too, keeping what you have on it, as a slave drive after you have put your OS on your new machine plus any cd or dvd on your old machine.All this is simple and within widows framework and tools, no tech skill needed, just a screwdriver and a manual with your new barebones motherboard. Plug the old ide drive into the right socket from the conncecting braid, set the jumpers as per hard drive diagram on the back plate on both drives. One master, one slave.Remember NOT to format your old drive/ LOL/
