Open Question

New Install Vista 64 LG GH20 DVD-RW driver

I have a new install system with the following configuration -
MOBO - M2N68-AM
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core 6000+
HDD - SATA1 Vendor WD 320Gig
Memory - 2Gig
DVD/RW - LG 20x (GH20) SATPI

When I try to install Vista 64 it is very slow and after about 2 hours it says that the driver for the DVD needs to be updated. This is the 2nd drive that I've tried and the 1st drive had the same response. Things I've tried -
Updated the BIOS
Changed the SATA cables
reset the CMOS
changed DVD drives (the 1st one was a Sony DVD)
downloaded all of the MOBO drivers, but they are not accepted

Suggestions?
Dan

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

Take a look at my guides they are as follows:

How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!
As you will need to install the drivers for your graphics card to get a better resolution and video quality! You will need to know the make of graphic card you are using either Nvidia or ATI/AMD Radeon

As you can download and install the latest Processor drivers for your computer.

Everything should be fine there in installing Windows 2000 on that computer with a Athlon processor. Just make sure you have all the drivers for your computer including the MOBO, video card and others.

Does amd 6000+ support dvr card ??


You are referring to a processor model (AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+) - which has nothing to do with supporting your DVR or not - what you should look at is your MOTHERBOARD brand/model and what type of slots does it have and what chipset does it use - newer boards have PCIe slots and PCI slots - I'm assuming your DVR card is PCI, there should be no problem - What brand / model # is your DVR card, go on the website of the DVR card manufacturer and look at the system requirements - it will give you exactly w hat you need (minimum OS needed, RAM, configuration, etc.) if a particular product is incompatible with certain chipset it will tell you on their webpage. Otherwise, if there are no known limitation it is a regular PCI card like any and should work fine - If you are running WIndows XP or higher there should be no problem at all as long as your DVR card supports your operating system. For XP, use XP drivers, for VISTA' use VISTA drivers and so forth.

I hope this helps.
