Try disabling the power saving features at the startup BIOS screen.

Memory settings for ddr

Since the Processor Front Side Bus (FSB) support is 200 or 266MegaHertz (MHz), the ram memory will be DDR Sdram at either 100Megahertz or 266MHz.

That is PC1600 and PC2100, respectively.

2GB's maximum TOTAL amount for motherboard.
1GB per ram memory slot - Maximum

If you have a Socket A (Socket 462) AMD processor with a 200MHz FSB, I suggest DDR Sdram at 100MHz. (PC1600)

AMD processor with 266MHz Front Side Bus = either PC1600, or PC2100. I would go with PC2100.

Voltage in BIOS Setup is 2.5 Volts. That is is the JEDEC standard voltage, for DDR Sdram.
Ram timings will be dependent upon what the ram memory supports.

IF you have just ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1.
(DIMM 1)
This is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

"When it comes to innovative motherboards ECS is not a company that first comes to mind. Not since the days of the K7AMA that offered DDR266 and PC133 memory options for AMD's K7 line of processors has ECS released a motherboard that has filled a gapping hole in the PC hardware market space. Lets just hope that the failure rate of the 945GCD-M is nothing like the failure prone K7AMA."

Upgrade the 1.6GHz CPU on L7VMM2 Motherboard

ECS Support > L7VMM2 motherboard > Main Support page,

Click on the CPU tab.

(Features / Specification / Download / Support / FAQ / CPU / etc)

Will support Up To an AMD Athlon XP 2600+,

Maximum Front Side Bus support is 266Megahertz.
(Max FSB = 266MHz)

(Motherboard manual states 133MHz.
Note that AMD processors are 'Double-pumped'.
This = 266MHz )

Supports AMD Athlon, AMD Athlon XP, and AMD Duron, processors.

Note in the CPU Support chart where it states -
Socket 462 > AMD Athlon XP > 2600+ (.13u)
The .13u stands for 130nm core architecture technology.

(nm = NanoMeter.
1 Billionth of a Meter )

For the Socket 462 (Socket A) processors, the AMD Athlon XP models are the top of the line.

'Sempy', or Sempron processors are at the bottom.
Low L2 processor memory cache compared to Athlon XP or Duron models.

    I want to add more ram in my pc km400/km266

    Oddly enough this board has the following specs: The board supports both Althon and Duron processors up to Athlon XP 2800+ (3000+ with a BIOS update). It can handle 3 GB of DDR333 RAM (or 2 GB of DDR400, but not all types are supported). 
    That's the older 184pin DDR ram in PC2700 or PC3200 guises. I can see no reason why it would only accept 2gb of the faster Ram.
    Why not go over to  and run the online scan to get the true story on your board?

    Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

    Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
    Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
    Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
    Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
    Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
    Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
    Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
    Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

    I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)

    K7VT2 with a AMD Duron 1.30 GHz CPU.

    Depends on which AMD processor you would use. If Duron you could go to 1.8Ghz. If you use Athlon XP you could go to 3200+. Athlon MP 2.1Ghz and regular Athlon 1.4Ghz.
