Can the motherboard asus p5vd2-mx admit a q6600?


The Q6600 will physically fit (LGA775) that Motherboard but it will probably not work. Attached is a list of supported processors and it looks like this motherboard does not support Kentfield based processors.

Can windows 7 be installed on asus k8v-mx mb with amd sempron 2.4 1gb ddr1ram


this is the minimum spec for Windows 7:

  • Processor: 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
  • Memory: 1 GB of system memory
  • Hard drive: 16 GB of available disk space
  • Video card: Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
  • Drive: DVD-R/W drive
  • Internet connection (to download the Beta and get updates)
Its not the motherboard, its the processor speed, RAM size, and hard drive space, and video card capability that counts.Your processor speed well meets this criteria and also your RAM size is within spec for Windows 7, and im sure you will have in excess of 16GiG hard drive space. So its all down to your video card. You may need to install DirectX 9.Hope this helps :)

Earlier i had ASUS P5G-MX motherboard & 2.0 GHz Core 2 duo Processor.I upgrade my Motherboard to Asus P5KL-AM/PS & then i have a black screen with my 2.0 ghz processor, But i tried 2.8 ghz Core 2...


HI,

The only Thing To Do, is view both Motherboards, user Manuals.
To see The boards CPU Support List.
It could be to do with, certain Motherboards Supporting, certain CPUs.
I.e a 533mhz cpu, would not run on a Motherboard that supports 400mhz. The Systems Bios, May cause Other Problems.
If your getting a Black Screen, is it a possible Graphics/Ram Problem, Rather Than The CPU ??

    Upgrading CPU


    Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
    Then I found this site -
    http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
    It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf
