Hello here is the homepage:

I would say no because the cpu does not exist anymore.

The only thing you can upgrade is the harddrive and the ram module.

The mainboard uses SDram and DDR ram in there own seperate block.
Sdram is hard to find and expensive.
DDRram can still be bought.

The specifications:

PROCESSORS

462 pin Socket A supports the AMD K7 processors
Full series of Athlon XP/Athlon/Duron processors
CHIPSET

SiS 740 & SiS 961/962 Chipset

Planning to upgrade my RAM(motherboard K7SOM + V7.5C). Ram have high & low density. What is the difference? Which suit my motherboard? Thanks.


Look at the sticks of RAM -- "high" density means fewer chips on each side of the stick, i.e., newer technology and production methods have packed more bits into each chip, while "low" density usually means 8 chips/side, using older RAM chips.

Older motherboards do not expect to find "high" density RAM, and typically will only detect 1/4 or 1/2 of the RAM on the stick.

If you buy a new motherboard, it will support BOTH densities.

No Power to Motherboard...


Here are some steps.

Attach the monitor in your CPU and plug it, see if the monitor powers up. If it did, then no problem in your power supply,

Detach the RAM or Memory of your CPU and put it back in, in the different slot. and power up your computer.

Check the cpu power switch if it is correctly attached to the motherboard.
