    Did you reinstall your windows? The windows software checks  the configuation of you hardware and if it changes much it wil no longer work. This is to stop people for putting a hard drive from one computer into another. That is what you did, only you built a different computer inside the same case..

Make sure you installed your new motherboards chip set drivers. Also, if you had Windows installed before you upgraded, you will probably have to reinstall.

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/O INTERFACE

Hope this was helpfull

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.


Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

Hyhcan i fit a bigger processor to the asus K8V-MX Motherboard and more ram


Your motherboard can take any AMD Athlon CPU (this does not include the newer multi core or Athlon 2 CPU's), as well as up to 2 gigabytes of DDR400/333/266, ECC, non-ECC, un-buffered memory. That memory has to be split between 2 dimms as the motherboard will not work with a single dimm of that size. Also, ensure that when you do put memory in that the 2 memory sticks are exactly the same.

Chip up grade options!


That
is a socket 754 motherboard. It will support AMD Athlon processors up to Athlon64 3400+. It is a bit long in the tooth by today's standards, and only uses DDR memory, not DDR2. You may get more of a bang for your buck by buying a "barebones" system, which can consist of a motherboard with processor and memory, depending on how much you want in the barebones package.

Typically you use the case, power supply you already have with the new motherboard and processor and ram (memory).

At any rate, if you only want to upgrade your processor, keep in mind that your board only supports up to the Athlon64 3400+. It will support up to DDR 400 ram. You would probably benefit more by buying 2 sticks of 400 DDR ram at 2 gigs each, if you don't have much ram now. If your processor is close to the 3400+, then another processor in that board isn't going to change things much.

Good luck, and write back if you'd like more help.

I have an Elitegroup KT600-A motherboard (System model KT600 8236) manufatcturer VIA Technologies, Inc. with total physical memormy 640K. Processor is x86 Family 6 Model 4 Stepping 2 Authentic AMD ~998...


Hello, according to your boards manual page 38 you will have to use unbuffered memory (non-ecc) and depending on which OS your are gonna use, it might address up to 3 GBs of (SDRAM) my personal preferrence is 3x1 GBs with XP Pro 32 bits. The CPU you mentioned should work just fine, and with the added memory your rig should provide you better performance, hope this little bit of info helps.

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside


If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.
http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=33018&mfr=Biostar&model=P4M80&root=&LinkBack=&Sys=33018-Biostar-P4M80-M4+Motherboard&distributor=0&submit1=Search
This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!

EliteGroup K7S5A (does not say pro on the board)


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).
