Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)

Memory settings for ddr

Since the Processor Front Side Bus (FSB) support is 200 or 266MegaHertz (MHz), the ram memory will be DDR Sdram at either 100Megahertz or 266MHz.

That is PC1600 and PC2100, respectively.

2GB's maximum TOTAL amount for motherboard.
1GB per ram memory slot - Maximum

If you have a Socket A (Socket 462) AMD processor with a 200MHz FSB, I suggest DDR Sdram at 100MHz. (PC1600)

AMD processor with 266MHz Front Side Bus = either PC1600, or PC2100. I would go with PC2100.

Voltage in BIOS Setup is 2.5 Volts. That is is the JEDEC standard voltage, for DDR Sdram.
Ram timings will be dependent upon what the ram memory supports.

IF you have just ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1.
(DIMM 1)
This is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

"When it comes to innovative motherboards ECS is not a company that first comes to mind. Not since the days of the K7AMA that offered DDR266 and PC133 memory options for AMD's K7 line of processors has ECS released a motherboard that has filled a gapping hole in the PC hardware market space. Lets just hope that the failure rate of the 945GCD-M is nothing like the failure prone K7AMA."

I can not finde free drivers for elitegroup Motherboard K7AMA

Hi Atom2008,

please visit, make the free registration and you will find the last bios version there. It's from April 2004, I've looked for it and found. you'll have much more there.

For VGA problems, only connecting anothe VGA card, instead of that one onboard, is the easiest way. The VGA drivers doesn't come separated from Bios Drivers to that motherboard.

I don't know what Operating System are you using, but if it is XP, I'll let you know that the motherboard is not ready for it anymore, concerning with VGA toghether... unfortunatly :-(

How far does the Boot get? Is your keyboard active (is it polled?), do you see the BIOS boot screen? Can you access BIOS?

Can not boot from CD or HD, with BIOS screen showing, is one thing.

Can not get BIOS screen showing, is another.

Both are, can not boot from CD or HD.
