    It would be best to know the brand of computer and model #, or if its a custom built the brand of the motherboard, and model #



    You can use most any DDR including DDR 333 (2700) or even DDR 400 Mhz, as they just scale down to the lower speed.



    the motherboard determines the amt of memory, how many slots, and max size in a slot the motherboard will support , so to max out, or give you best advice please list more info.

I should think that will be ok but why restrict it to 512 when you can have 1024 mb

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)

I have the hp pavilion 524w desktop computer and I was wanting to know if it is possible to insert a newer version of the processor. 1.73 ghz is not fast enough. Is there anything faster that will go with...


The compatibility isn't with the memory, it's with the motherboard and its chipset. In your case the motherboard is a FIC AM-37 which has an VIA KM266A chipset - an extremely old chipset . The only processors accepted are AMD Athlon XP of the first generation of which you already have the fastest version
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Athlon(tm)_XP_3200%2B#Athlon_XP_.22Palomino.22_.28Model_6.2C_180_nm.29
So no, it's not possible to upgrade it. You will have to buy another motherboard-processor combo.

How do you know when a memory stick is single-bank? I want to upgrade my A7V8X-X with 3 Gs, but I keep getting confuse how to determent what is single-bank! Is there a specific code in the product...


This is the memory spec for your motherboard...

3 x DDR DIMM Sockets
Max. 3 GB unbuffered PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC SDRAM Memory (PC3200 Max. to 2 banks only / PC2700 Max to 4 banks only)

Part of the memory spec will tell you if it is single sided (memory chips only on one side of board)
Double sided is memory chips on both sides of the board....Some systems will not work with double sided memory...

I want to know which memory to buy for my pc. I checked it on crucial.com and it said I could upgrade to 1gb. When I looked inside the cover I saw a 256mb memory chip but could not see how many slots it...


hello, here's a part of the spec from the hp website. It looks like you've got 256mb on board memory and one expansion memory slot in which you can fit a 1024mb card, giving you a max memory of 1280mb (1024+256).
Hope this helps!

    Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

    According to their website, the board can take:

    AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
    AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
    AMD Duron (including Morgan)


    You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm.

    It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).
