You should have posted each problem seperately as they are unrelated. I will try to answer both.

First, here is the link to the Elite webpage to download drivers for the K7AMA motherboard:)

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=81&DetailName=New&DetailDesc=K7AMA%20%20(V1.5)&CategoryID=1&MenuID=82&LanID=0

From the motherboard manual...

Key Features
The key features of this mainboard include:
Socket-462 Processor Support
¨ Supports AMD Athlon/Duron processors
¨ Supports 200/266 MHz Front-Side Bus
Memory Support
¨ Two 168-pin DIMM slots for SDRAM memory modules
¨ Two 184-pin DIMM slots for DDR memory modules
¨ Support for 100/133MHz memory bus
¨ Maximum installed memory is 1GB
Note: You cannot use SDRAM and DDR simultaneously.
Expansion Slots
¨ One AMR slot for a special audio/modem riser card
¨ One AGP4X slot for AGP 2.0-compliant interface
¨ Four 32-bit PCI slots for PCI 2.2-compliant bus interface
Onboard IDE channels
¨ Primary and Secondary PCI IDE channels
¨ Support for PIO (programmable input/output) modes
¨ Support for Multiword DMA modes
¨ Support for Bus Mastering and Ultra DMA 33/66/100/133
modes
Power Supply and Power Management
¨ ATX power supply connector
¨ ACPI and previous PMU support, suspend switch,
keyboard power on/off
¨ Supports Wake on Modem, Wake on LAN and Wake on
Alarm

Note that there are differenet revisions of the board. Also, if you have one of the 'crossover' revisions with two types of memory slots, you cannot use the 168-pin SDRAM slots at the same time as the 184-pin DDR slots to increase your total memory.

Second,

No display can be caused by a number of factors, especially as you do not give the history of the board. Generally you should hear the onboard speaker beep if the computer completes the Power On Self Test (POST). If there is no onboard speaker there should be a connector on the motherboard to connect the case speaker, usually a four-pin connector with two wires used.

If you are not completing POST it could be anything from a bad motherboard, bad CPU, bad ram, bad video card, bad power supply (not supplying correct or sufficient voltage), bad BIOS chip or not just configured properly. If you had to connect the CPU, did you use one that is supported by the motherboard and did you mount it with thermal paste, heatsink and fan?

Most obvious sign of a bad motherboard would be if any of the cylindrical capacitors have swollen tops or are leaking fluids out of their top. Take a good look at the motherboard and all of the pieces on it. I've even seen the copper coils completely burnt. But not all motherboard problems are visible so it could still be a bad board if nothing looks amiss. You would really need a good motherboard analyzer (mine cost $1200) to know for sure.

Next, are the other components known good and tested one by one in another system? You did not give enough information to focus in on what the problem might be. I would suggest you try to connect a speaker first to see if there is a beep code at all, if not it is likely a bad motherboard/CPU. Then try puttting in a different video card, PCI if possible because you might have a bad AGP slot, too. Next try a Boot Analyzer that plugs into the serial port to see if you are getting any CPU activity. There are just so many tests, you might need to have hands on assistance if it is worth the cost. In general try to test each component piece by piece in another (working) system.

Please repost with your progress and comments.

Memory settings for ddr


http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/ECS/K7AMA/

Since the Processor Front Side Bus (FSB) support is 200 or 266MegaHertz (MHz), the ram memory will be DDR Sdram at either 100Megahertz or 266MHz.

That is PC1600 and PC2100, respectively.

2GB's maximum TOTAL amount for motherboard.
1GB per ram memory slot - Maximum

If you have a Socket A (Socket 462) AMD processor with a 200MHz FSB, I suggest DDR Sdram at 100MHz. (PC1600)

AMD processor with 266MHz Front Side Bus = either PC1600, or PC2100. I would go with PC2100.

Voltage in BIOS Setup is 2.5 Volts. That is is the JEDEC standard voltage, for DDR Sdram.
Ram timings will be dependent upon what the ram memory supports.

IF you have just ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1.
(DIMM 1)
This is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

"When it comes to innovative motherboards ECS is not a company that first comes to mind. Not since the days of the K7AMA that offered DDR266 and PC133 memory options for AMD's K7 line of processors has ECS released a motherboard that has filled a gapping hole in the PC hardware market space. Lets just hope that the failure rate of the 945GCD-M is nothing like the failure prone K7AMA."

ECS M925 1.0 MEMORY UPGRADES


ECS M-Series M925

it looks like your motherboard will only take 2 gb of ram 2x1 gb of ram
PC2100
266 Mhz 2GB (2X1GB) Kit
M-266-1024X2BD10
or

PC2700
333 Mhz 2GB (2X1GB) Kit
M-333-1024X2BD10


if you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system


you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible


hope this helps

Hey All, THIS IS URGENT. My PVCLE266M-L V3.0a will not boot into any OS. I have 2 identical boards. I can navigate BIOS on both of them with the DDR400 512MB RAM stick I have put in. (The specifications...


Your mainboard PVCLE266M-L does not support the DDR 400 Mhz RAM (PC3200) ie @ 400Mhz frequency. For the memory specfications it support "2 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support two2.5V DDR SDRAMs (DDR266)" maximium is 2GB or DDR PC2100 ie @ 266Mhz frequency.

PC133 is the SDRAM so it will not fit the DDR RAM slot.

You should not use the 400MhzDDR memory RAM on a Mainboard with a FSB(Front Side Bus) of 133 Mhz and the 400Mhz DDR Ram is not compatible with the mainboard.

Get the DDR 266 with double side chipset i.e.DDR1 RAM (DDR PC2100) RAM and it will be compatible with your mainboard. Sometimes single side chipset DDR1 RAM will not work on older mainboard.

Hope it helps.

Is ECS Memory compatible with the ASUS P5LP-LE?


ASUS website
Search for product manual. I'm not sure what ECS memory is. ECC memory was incompatible to must custom built PC - Unless you had a ECC memory compatible Mother Board.. Server Certified in most cases.

I can't recognize what specific RAM this motherboard accepts..


Dear sir,

In reply to your post- Generally now a days we use DDR400 RAM(DDR 1) for this type of motherboard.So DDR 400 RAM is More compatible then other RAM,you can use this RAM for your motherboard to obtain good performance.

good luck

When choosing a memory for your PC


In the manual of your motherboard you can see what memosticks suported and compatible on the motherboard
If you dont have the manual but know the name of the motherboard you can find same info on the producers site

If you want me to link you you need to tell me name on your motherboard

Good luck
