Yes, the SVX400 motherboard works great with Linux. Especially Ubuntu.

It should, the best thing to try would be booting with a linux live CD such as offered by ubuntu, if it works properly you'd be ready to go.

Hi everybody, I have a problem installing a dimm SDRAM Module on a MoBo Syntax SVX 400. User Manual says that till 4GB modules are supported. I bought a Transcend 1GB PC266 SDRAM module to increase the...

One long beep signals a memory failure - the stick you just bought is faulty. BTW there is no PC266 in SDRAM the maximum is PC133. PC266 is the first standard that appeared for DDRAM. so you most likely have bought something not right from the start.

I just installed LinuxOS Live CD, and I cant get the rewritable disk I have to come up, like it did in Microsoft XP. I used to see the Removable Drive so I could click it and it would show up. I dont know...

The answer to previous post is... because winbloze sucks.

I have ran many linux distros but If your brand new to linux I would strongly recommend installing PCLinuxOS. I used it to replace XP on my cheap laptop and it rocks! For the very few non-alternative winbloze apps that I still have to run, I run them in an XP virtual machine using virtualbox inside linux. Unless you have some stupidly oddball writer, PCLOS will detect it & set it all up for you. Just download the live cd iso from here, burn it to disk on another machine, boot and install. Life in Linux is sweet!

New motherboards cost like 35 pounds, so repair is out of the question, when replacement will give you up to date technology, and much more features.

I can see your motherboard supports only 'AGP' video cards, which are both older, of lower performance, and quite often more expensive. If you choose to upgrade your motherboard, choose one with 'PCI-Express' video card capability.

In addittion, your board supports only Intel Socket 478 CPU's, these are beginning to show their age in performance terms now, so I'd suggest you consider a CPU & Motherboard bundle, which saves you money, and you can even get one that can use your old DDR memory from the other motherboard.

As a video card choice, there is only ATI, and Nvidia chips out there, so if ATI, you need at least an X1900 series or better, if Nvidia, you need at least an 8700 GT series or better.

Good luck.

Hey Mate, the fault is caused by the base unit not sending a signal to the monitor. most likely cause Graphics Card or Memory. if you remove one at a time and replace them back in the motherboard usually fixes the problem. All the best John
