You cannot upgrade it since it is a socket 478 board (Intel 845), the highest you can go is a 2.6Ghz Pentium 4 (I have one somewhere I think). You can upgrade the memory if you can find the stick for it (DDR1 266Mhz).

    You cannot add parts to bypass the limitations of the motherboard. Bus speed does not affect the boards 4GB RAM limit.

SOURCE: CPu fan turns for 1 second and then stops.

If all was working fine before, then, you have either not connected the cpu power cable, as is sometimes required other than being powered by the processor socket, or your power supply unit is not pentium 4 compatable and is unable to power the processor.

SOURCE: msi 654e max atx mother board

If your manual states a max of 2.2GHZ then, take it as that, when your board was made the bios and bus speeds would be set at the maximum to run a 2.2GHZ, not a 3GHZ, also the heat sink and fan may not be enough to cool the processor. The only way that a 3GHZ would run was if you updated the bios and personally i would not recommend it. You would be better advised updating the board and processor as a package ot fitting more memory if the pc is not used for gaming or high end video editing.

SOURCE: I am trying to remove a and replace the motherboard in my desktop pc. I have quad core processors. How do I fit and get the pc to recognise the new board and processors?

If the motherboard you bought did not come with a processor and heatsink, you will have to take the one from your current system and put them in the new one. You will also need thermal paste for this transfer, so please purchase some if you do not have it already.

Keep in mind that no versions of Windows XP can use more than 4 GB of RAM, and only the 64-bit version of Windows Vista can correctly use it. If you are still intent on replacing the board after knowing this, follow these directions.

You're going to want to be very careful with this kind of procedure. Ensure that everything is unplugged and that you are working in a static free environment. (Not on the carpet!)

First, you'll want to take out the power supply. Follow the cables down, and disconnect them from each of the components it powers. The connections for the motherboard will have retention clips, so be careful. Once you have the connections undone, take a screwdriver and remove the power supply from the case.

Next, look to see if the hard drives hover over the board in any way. If they are not in the way, try not to remove them. We want as little re-assembly as possible.

You're going to want to disconnect the cables for the hard drive(s) next. Remove them from the motherboard, keeping an eye on which cables went where. The same goes for the cables from your DVD/CD drive(s).

Next, take a look at what's connected to your board. Are there any expansion cards? If so, unscrew them from the back of the machine, and carefully lift them out. If there is a videocard in the machine, watch for a retention clip - make sure not to force the card out.

After everything is out, look around. Make sure that there are no fans connected from the case to the board, and if there are, unplug them. Lastly, take the wires running from the front of the case to the bottom area of the board, and disconnect them. Please notice if there are labels on them.. you will need to hook them up according to your new board's arrangement.

Once you're sure that nothing else is connected to the board, start unscrewing it from the side of the case. On most boards, there will be six screws for this. Please make sure you get them all. Once this is done, you can lift the old one out. Most people do this by pulling up on the heatsink fan over their processor. I also suggest lifting by the sides of the board itself. It may tug where the back panel with the keyboard/mouse/USB ports are.. Just lift the board on the upper right side and angle it out if it does.

Once you have the old board out, set it somewhere safe. Remove the heatsink. This will be a forceful procedure.. You'll need to lift the rentention clip and lift it off.. Wipe the old thermal paste from the bottom of the heatsink. Go back to the board, and lift the small lever that is next to the processor. You should be able to lift it out, be very careful with the bottom!

Clean the processor, and get the excess thermal paste off. Lift the retention bracket next to the socket of the new board, carefully lining the processor up and setting it down gently. Lower the bracket.

Apply a small bit of thermal paste to the processor. Spread it evenly, making sure there are no gaps or globs. Take the heatsink, align it with the socket, and gently lower it on top of the processor. Lock the heatsink back down, and let it set for a bit to get the air bubbles worked out from the paste. Make sure you connect the fan in the heatsink to the board!

If the metal shield around your keyboard/mouse/USB ports matches your new board, you can leave it in. Otherwise, replace it with the one that came with your new board. Look at how the screws line up with the newer board.. If it matches the gold posts (standoffs) in your case, then you can lower the board back in the same way you lifted the old one out, and gently set it down. It will take some work to get it properly aligned with that metal shield.

Once you have it set down, begin to screw the board down. Make sure ALL of the holes are filled - you don't want anything to short out. Begin with the wires from the front of the case. They are called "front panel" connections, and a guide to hooking them up should be in your motherboard's manual.

Connect the fans back up to the board, and reinstall the power supply, reversing the directions I gave earlier. Leave out the extra expansion cards for now, and if the board has a video port near the keyboard/mouse, leave out the videocard, too. If it doesn't have its own video port, go ahead and put your card back in. Install the RAM.

Connect the power connections from the power supply back up to the board, hard drives, and DVD/CD drives. Take the cables from those drives and reconnect them to your new board. From here, you should be able to turn the system on.

Your system WILL freak out. There is new hardware attached, and it won't have the drivers. Just cancel when it tries to look for them, and then run the CD that came with the motherboard to get everything installed and working. Once you're sure everything's going to be working alright, turn off the machine and reinstall the extra cards.

This is a very bland guide. If you have more specific questions, don't hesitate to ask.

I upgraded Memory to 4GB with Two 2GB SD Ram Modules but System shows Only One 2GB module and does not show/recognize second module. BIOS Setting Shows Second Slot/RAM Module Not Activated.


is the module in properly?,is anything broken?? switch them around and see if the module is good or not,also,just because the motherboard supports 2 modules,if intel only recognizes 2gb then that is all,whether you have 2 1gb modules or 2 2gb modules,upgrade your intel chip and upgrade your bios

The extra ram may not speed it up. You need to find out whats causing it to slow down, and fix that issue first.

The cpu speed does not affect the amount of usable RAM.
If the motherbaord is designed to take more than 4gb, it can be installed, but will not be used if the operating system is 32 bit.
To use more than about 3.5gb you have to have a 64 bit operating system. For example, my PC motherboard has slots for 8gb and I have 4gb installed, but the system only uses 3.25gb because my operating system is 32 bit XP.

Can i put 2x2gb ram in k9vgm-v motherboard


It should specs say:
• Supports Dual DDR II 533/667/800
- 2 DDRII DIMMs (240pin / 1.8V)
- Supports a maximum memory size up to 2GB.
Most systems will pick up the 4GB, but Windows 32Bit has a 3GB limitation.

Can Gigabyte GA-8I945PLGE-RH supports 4gb ram?


Sorry, but at the moment you can't do that. This is because the BIOS is programmed to manage only 2GB memory. I searched for BIOS upgrade to resolve the memory issue but with no luck. At the moment your motherboard supports only 2 GB RAM.
