Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I want to add more memory to a P5ST-A motherboard which has 60Mb RAM at the moment. The board has a Cyrix 6x86MX Proc. running at 149Mhz. Would the PC100 128M SDRam Dimm module supplied by Maplin be suitable?. Many thanks. David Pettitt

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

    I agree it is a very old unit.(A bit like me :-)) I replaced it a few years ago with a Pentium4 but have brought it out of retirement to run a telescope drive system and it is a bit short on memory.

    I was hoping to upgrade it but it looks as though that might be difficult.(and/or expensive)

Nope I beleave this are ran on 66mhz bus memory thus that solution will not even fit. Very old unit you got there it would be costly to upgrade due to part availability.

Can a Toshiba p15-s409 be upgraded to another motherboard and processor?


Motherboard is usually a big no when it comes to laptops as that motherboard was specific to that laptop. That is the way they are made. It will support a max 2GB of RAM, according to the specs.

The CPU? Well it depends on if, and that is a big if, the motherboard will support a faster P4 proc. I believe the fastest P4 that was made was 3.8Ghz, but have never found one. Then will the motherboard support a proc that fast? You have to look at the heat/cooling issue also.

If you don't want to get a new lappy, and don't have 2GB of RAM in it, then get more RAM. A 2.8Ghz with 2GB of RAM will run Win 7 fairly well.

Asus memory


Yes you can buy a new MB. Here's a link to a motherboard that will support 4GB or RAM. You didn't specify what proc you have to double check to make sure the MB is compatable.

check your previous memory if its dd1, ddr2 or dd3 and check also your motherboard's manual for this. be sure that you add the same specs of memory otherwise remove your previous memory.

Ram Support


You can add that to the motherboard. 80% chance your motherboard will support that memory. It will run at a lower speed if your motherboard can only run at a lower speed than 400Mhz

Mother board


Oh thats easy.!. Well here we go: First you need a screwdriver, and a calm hand and patience; then we can start...

  1. Power off your computer
  2. Disconnect all cabling at the back of the computer. Maybe you want to note which cable goes where so that later it is easier for you to put back the cables.
  3. Open your computer case (the one that is opposite of the motherboard.
  4. Now you can either use a "digital camera" ro assist you; so you make pictures of the board configurations, or you can make drawings to guide you (You probably want to put a new motheroard into the PC so you also want to know where the cables will go right ???
  5. Disconnect your cables from your motherboard that come from your power supply. Also disconnect the wires going to your drives ( CD-ROM, DVD) that come from the Power supply.
  6. Now disconnect your Data cables ( IDE or SATA cables) that run from your CD-ROM / DVD and hard drives. Just remember their configeration.
  7. Now, disconnect the other cables, mainly audio, cpu fan cable, chassis fan cable and audio drive through cables and any other cables attached to your MB.
  8. Next up we have the removal of devices that are direclty attached to your MB. Remove the RAM (Do not touch the RAM on the chips, rather hold it at the sides), remove all add in PCI cards like network card,graphics card etc and put them in seperate anti-static containers
  9. Now its time to get the proc: Remove the heatsink+fan by unscrewing it from the MB; there must be four screws around the MB. If you have removed the Heatsinkwithfan, you will see the proc. There must be either a little switch, a screw or lever to "release the proc" from its "socket" otherwise you will damage your proc and or your motherboard. If you have released the lever, you can remove the proc. lay it somewhere, so that its pins or chips lie down.
  10. Check if there are addional devices that need to be removed.
  11. Next, unscrew the MB from the casing, There should be about 6-12 screws on the MB.
  12. All done: All you need to do now is remove the motherboard slowly from its rest, take it out and put it somewhere safe
  13. All done
Next up would be: How do I install a motherboard.

Kind Regards,
Dominik

Diagram of motherboard wanted


Hi,

Based on your post/description, you would want to do 2 things: 1) upgrade a Cyrix and 2) install LAN capability.

#2 is easier, all you need is a PCI LAN card with the right drivers for your operating system and you should be set to go;

#1 is trickier...
If you are referring to a Cyrix MediaGXm motherboard, at most that you can go up to is a 300 MHz CPU and hopefully a max of 256Mb of memory depending on the motherboard version.

If you are referring to a Cyrix MII-433 processor which ran at 300 MHz (100x3), hopefully you can try replacing the processor with an AMD K6-2 500 or higher, that is of course assuming that the motherboard is compatible (FSB, VCore voltage, multiplier). You should take into consideration that other than the MII-433. most Cyrix CPUs run at 83 MHz bus in a (Super) Socket 7 motherboard and technically is extremely overclocked (PCI bus running at 41.5 MHz). You should meticulously check the various jumper settings to accommodate your upgrade CPU. For stability, perhaps you should choose an Intel 266 with MMX, for speed AMD K6-2 500. This is of course if you can still locate such processors and appropriate memories.

Good luck and kind regards.

Asus K8N-dl - second processor present but not running...


Hi, Mistyman here. All Asus mother boards that have dual channel RAM slot must have equal ram in each slot. In most cases the paired slots are matched by color for easy ID, some are identified by a printed ID on the mother board. With your board you will have to have run all of your RAM for the one CPU. If you have only one stick this must be in slot one. If you are using two sticks then utilise the dual chanel system that ASUS have and use A1 & A3. To activate the second CPU you will need to install matching sticks of RAM in the B slots. both cpu's will need to have the value of RAM to work together properly. CPU one = slot A for RAM CPU two = Slot B for RAM. Goodluck, the ASUS boards are a value product.
