Question about FIC KA 31 Motherboard

1 Answer

Computer keeps rebooting

Hello, I recently installed a FIC KA-31 Pentium III 1 ghz motherboard with 512 RAM that I purchased from a working computer. I installed it in a case with a 400 watt power supply, PNY video card, 3.5 floppy and CD ROM. I have IDE 80 cable. I also installed a new 300 gig unformatted hard drive. When I start the computer, it will do a memory check, show the equipment list, and then reboot. I can not get it to read the 3.5 floppy or CD ROM. I am able to go into BIOS and set the boot sequence. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, George

Re: Computer keeps rebooting

-Try setting your BIOS to the manufacturers ?safe? mode or reset to factory defaults. -I would test the processor and memory in another working PC if possible. I?ve had both cause this in the past. -If no luck still then remove the hard drive, CD, floppy, the extra memory (it might be a MB socket problem). Make this as basic a machine as possible to remove other variables. -Try testing the video card in another working PC. Let us know how it goes, I?ll ponder one this some more tonight.

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...

The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

Memory upgrade issue

Most ram has to go in pairs. Buy another stick of the 1GB, and it will run fine.

Installing XP on P III 866 MHz pc

Hi Mri,
Download this software by clicking on this link.

Everything you need is on the site. Bottom line, this software will erase your drive & allow you to install Windows XP what every version. You can try installing you're current drive into another working system & you might be able to pull you're personal data off the drive. It's worth a shot. One way or another you're MBR & FAT system are out to lunch. It just happends.(Suprised you haven't received any blue screens)!

If I can be of more service, just post.
Let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!

U have to find the motherbord's manual !!!! U will find there all u need. But most probably u won;t be able to put those processors (the speed diferences are too big, even if they are of the same slot type)
