    You can click on the Gigabyte link below. I see model numbers before & after but not one matching GA-8IMLNF. The only reason this can be is the board was made by Gigabyte but for another manufacture. Example: Dell, HP, Emachine ECT. The model number you typed is for a Packard Bell That is why the model does not show on Gigabyte's site. Some specs for the Packard Bell MB: Processor Socket 478 for Intel® Micro FC-PGA2 Pentium® 4 processor 400 MHz FSB Chipset SIS 650 system controller north bridge SiS961 MuTIOL® south bridge AC97 codec REALTEK RTL8100L LAN chip Memory 2 x DDR Slots Supports up to 2GB DDR266 memory Expansion Slots 1 x AGP 4X slot 3 x PCI slots support 33MHz and PCI 2.2 compliant 1 x CNR slot Mike

I set up this same mobo after my old one died and this was all I had. The manuals are fine except they have more pins than my mobo. Mine only has 9 pins, 4 at the top and 5 on the bottom. I got it to power on with the POWER SW on the top right hand 2 pins, positive to LHS I think. It doesn't matter if they're around the opposite way as it won't damage the board. The bottom left hand 2 pins are your HDD LED and the next 2 pins are your RESET SW. These pins are positive to RHS. The bottom 5th pin on the far right is not used. I tried all combinations on the 2 top left hand pins for the PWR LED but got no result so just left them off. I tried a P4 3GHz but it would only turn on for about 5 seconds then shut off. Maybe the BIOS is set only to accept a Celeron CPU. A BIOS upgrade may be in order.

You don't need the manual for a few reasons. First, it should be already working fine on the default settings. Secondly, if you want to set the jumpers, go here:
Finally, if it's BIOS settings you're concerned about, just look through the reviews and test sites, as I did to find this one. They often show screen shots and talk about any unusual features of the BIOS. Most of the options can be determined/understood from an explanation for almost any other BIOS since they all have pretty much the same options. You can also Google/Wikipedia specific features by name, such as 'BIOS s1' or 'BIOS POST'.
Since you're a noob, I'd suggest that you try this type of search for the main features you're concerned about. Don't forget to ask further questions about your system on FixYa if you can't seem to find an answer by following this advice ;) .

Ga 8simlnf ram upgrade

There is no motherboard with this model number. Can you recheck this by looking on the board itself. Its right in the middle of the board.

In general though, you can usually put 4GBs of Ram in the G8 series but only Vista and later Linux versions will actually report above 3GBs.

Please reply using the comment box below. Thanks.
