Re: what type of windows to insatll in k7vm4-motherboard

That board used a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) Socket that has a small lever attached to it that will rotate the CPU out of its locked-in position.

Disconnect the main power cable from the back of the computer - the one that is plugged into the wall. Make certain that the power is off to the display.

After being certain to ground yourself and remove any static electricity, detach the power connector for the fan and then carefully open the ZIF Lever.

With the lever in a fully upright position carefully grip the fan chasis and ease the chip straight up. Be aware that the chip has a number of delicate pins on its base which is how it plugs into the motherboard and if any of these are bent or moved out of alignment it can both damage the chip and make it difficult to re-install it.

If you are upgrading the CPU be aware of the following:

You will need to reconfigure the motherboard settings for the new CPU

You will want to use thermal paste when attaching the new heatsink and fan.

This is was with me too. I know how to fix it. Remove all cables from your cabinet, i mean like keyboard, mouse, moniter etc. Remove your ram too. Then press your power button from 30 seconds. wait for 10 mins plugin all cables and turn it on. Hope it works for you.

Best of luck.

Is the asrock k7vm2 motherboard easily replace by the k7vm4 asrock. my k7vm2 is dead and replacements are not easy to come by. I'm just looking for a new mother board to hook up to my hard drive and not...


You may be able to just swap out the motherboard for a K7VM4 motherboard but some of the specs are different like the chipset and graphics etc.

K7VM4 specs as follows >>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM400 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • Hybrid Booster - a safe overclocking feature
  • FSB 333/266/200, DDR 333/266/200
  • Integrated UniChrome 3D Graphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 8X/4X 1.5V
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100 LAN and 5.1-Ch Audio.
K7VM2 specs as follows >>>>>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM266 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • DDR 266/200
  • Integrated ProSavarage8 3DGraphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 4X/2X universal.
  • Supports both DDR and SDRAM memory modules to provide you best flexibility and save your cost.
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100LAN and Audio.

As you can see the graphics and chipsets are different although the processor sockets are the same.

This could cause problems if you are going to plug the hard drive to another board but saying that is is possibe and has been done before.

This is a chance you take when you swap out a board for a different motherboard although i suspect that the transition should go smoothly.

A fairly old motherboard like K7VM4 or K7VM2 will not cost that much these days. You will find both motherboards for sale on eBay.

My pc processor not hit when on the mother board my mother board is aopen mother board plaese give me salution

If you mean that your processor pins does not fit in your motherboard, then they are not compatible. The processor pins must be exactly fit the motherboard.
Besides, the processor type must be supported by the motherboard (If the motherboard is supporting P4, Core Dou, Quad, Celeron, Athlon, etc). You have to install the right processor for a particular motherboard. You have to know what particular
processor is supported by your motherboard.. In your
case, I believe it supports Pentium 4, but I cannot
give you the exact speed in Ghz, as well as the clock speed. You can ask the dealer about it.

D845GVAD2 mother board

Well if you want to keep your processor than you'll want to search for a motherboard with the same Socket type. You'll need to know exactly what kind of processor you have. If you have the box you can find out that way. Assuming you put it together your yourself. Or if you really have no clue. You can remove the heatsink off the CPU. And the socket label will be written right under that. (examples could be.. socket A.. socket 378.. Socket 754).

Once you find that. You can find a motherboard with that type and just ensure that it supports your processor and you'll be good to go.

Gigabyte mother board ga-6bx7+

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.
