Agreed, bad or incompatible ram will do this on the MBX-49 Mobo.
You can only use PC100 on this board.

You may have a compatible issue with the ram, your board bois may not support that manufavtures brand or coding of the chip set you are running. have some else try some other ram from another manufacture.

DOES K7SOM MOTHERBOARD UPGRADABLE?


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/Downloads_Driver_Detail.aspx?MenuID=61&LanID=0&detailid=79#Download-2

And the + versions:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/ECSSearch.aspx?menuid=0&lanid=0&keyword=K7SOM+

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
SiS 740 Host/Memory controller with high quality 3D graphic accelerator
SiS 961/961B/962 MuTIOL Media I/O
Integrated USB 2.0 host controller in SiS 962
LPC I/O -ITE8705F
LAN: MAC integrated in SiS 961/961B/962 and PHY on board
AC97 Audio Codec: Compliant with AC97 2.2 specification
SYSTEM BIOS

AMI 2MB Flash EEPROM
Supports Plug and Play 1.0A, AMP 1.2, Multi Boot, DMI
Support for ACPI revision 1.0 specification
MEMORY

2 DDR DIMM Sockets and 2 DIMM sockets support (can not be used simultaneously)
Two 184-pin 2.5V DDR SDRAM (DDR266/200) or
Two 168-pin 3.3V SDRAM (PC133/PC100)
Maximum: 2GB (DDR SDRAM or SDRAM)

Hope this was helpfull

Upgrade on Memory Card


When you said memory cards i assume you mean the RAM. You can just take out the ram and put in new ones. Nothing else.

1. Has anyone installed 2Gb RAM memory in a Sony PCG-TR3A? please give details of memory specification. 2. Has anyone installed a HDD bigger than 40GB? please give me details of HDD specification.


Hi,
You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.


Regards.

Just need to know how to change the ram in my Sony Vaio PCG-v505ap


visit vaio manual in
ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/pub/Manuals/Notebooks/
You can do this in two ways: opening your notebook and taking a look on the memory modules already installed (we will explain more about this later) or running a program like Everest (available on our download section). We ran Everest (going to Motherboard, Chipset, Memory Slots) on our notebook and found that it was using two 256 MB DDR-SDRAM PC2700 (“DDR333”) modules, for a total of 512 MB.
imageview.php?image=1680
click to enlarge
Figure 1: Checking your current memory configuration with Everest.
If your notebook has an empty memory slot, just go to the computer store and buy a new SO-DIMM module with the same technology (SDRAM or DDR-SDRAM) and speed of any capacity you want – of course you need to know the capacity limit of your notebook. You cannot install a 1 GB module in a notebook that only accepts modules up to 512 MB, for example. Our notebook – a Sony Vaio PCG-V505ECP – accepts modules up to 1 GB, for a total of 2 GB RAM, since it has two memory slots.
For example, if your notebook has one 256 MB module and an empty memory slot, if you buy and install another 256 MB module, it will have 512 MB RAM. If you buy and install a 512 MB module, your notebook will have 768 MB.
If your notebook already has two memory modules, you will need to remove one of the installed modules in order to install the new one. If the two modules have the same capacity, it doesn’t matter which one you will take away, but if they have different capacities, remove the one with smaller capacity. The new RAM capacity of your notebook will be of the capacity of the remaining module plus the capacity of the new module.
In our case, our notebook has two 256 MB modules. So we will remove one of these modules and install a new one on its place. We bought a 1 GB-module, so after installing it our notebook will have 1,280 MB RAM installed (memory math is tricky, since 1 GB equals to 1,024 MB not 1,000; so 1,024 MB + 256 MB = 1,280 MB).

Hi,
Memory Upgrade for Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop, the Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 512 MB = 256 MB (removable) + 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Laptop to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 512 MB = 256 MB (removable) + 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed. For best Laptop performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your Laptop.

I went and bought new ram for my computer. it's an IBM desktop. type 6792. a pc133 512MB sdram. my computer will not pick it up. how do i get the computer to pick up the ram? it is the right kind of ram?


I checked at http://www.buffalotech.com/products/memory/select/select-dimm/ and according the the memory configurator there your IBM Netvista 6792 takes this type of memory which can be ordered from them PC-133mhz SDRAM DIMM 168 pin, it indicated that your pc has 3 slots for memory and the maximum size you can put in each slot is 512 MB which would give you the maximum memory of 1536 MB. I have had problems in the past when replacing memory in IBM PC's some modules won't work because IBM uses different memory than other Manufacturers. But give Buffalo a try, their memory is guaranteed.

Memory upgrade


First step : Make sure the memory you purchased meets the following specifications

"168pin PC133 SDRAM DIMM" which should be easily accessible from wherever you bought it.

If not, then you can find memory here. that the company guarentee's will work with your system. Also - You want to make sure the memory that was in your system to begin with is identical to the memory you are sticking in it to get it to 512MB Systems that are this old with "PC133 SDRAM" are very picky about what kind of ram you stick in them. Make sure wherever you purchase your memory from, has a guarentee that it will work in the make/model of your computer.

New Motherboard for Sony VAIO-RX550


I just bought the same box, mostly for the case, power supply, etc, to use as a small server.
Three ARE 2 ram slots, but this motherborad IS limited to 512mb total. And it uses SDRAMM PC133 or 100, not SO DIMM - incompatible. PC133 SDRAM 512 is $9 (btw, installing in pairs not required on DDR SDRAM) and even if your existing is 256 & an empty slot, buying another 256 may not work, sometimes brands are incompatible. Just get the 512.

However, replacing the motherboard is your ONE chance to change lots of things at once which may be the best choice at this point. Physical size ("form factor"), CPU socket, memory type & price, graphics connections (AGP, PCIe, or built in) are key factors.

1\ the case fits a "Mini ATX" mother board (mATX). The majority of accessories use PCI lots - sound, LAN, etc. and every mother board will have 3 or more PCI slots. Probably don't need modem anymore.
2\ what CPU does it support. The original P4 1.5GHz cpu is normally a primary expense, but today your P4 Socket 478 is worth $8 (pricewatch.com) brand new. This means buying a motherboard-cpu combo may make sense. While you're at it, get more & faster memory and you'll think it's a new PC for less the $100 unless you go all out.
3\ what type & how much memory it handles & how much you have. Existing PC133 SDRAM is old & slow, about 8x faster SDRAM ddr2-800 pc2-6400 2GB is only $24 and 2GB is about the minimum today. (btw, DDR2 - notice the 2 - IS installed as a pair.) DDR is far from current, but plenty fast and very cheap, just need to balance the memory-motherboard-cpu combo.
4\ if not playing games, the video card is old but ok. It connects via the largely discarded AGP slot. So in looking at a motherboard combo, either with an AGP slot or on-board video is desirable.
