EliteGroup K7S5A (does not say pro on the board)

What max CPU can I fit in this board.(No manual for it)And what video card ??
I am trying to use this PC that was given me and trying to upgrade for max use.

According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)

You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).

Would A 1GB PC3200 run in the K7s5a alone.

According to the specs the max amount of ram is 1 GB and max speed is pc2100 so a pc3200 would not run on it unless the board was able to clock the speed down of that single stick of ram.

I was not able to find the max amount of ram per slot on a quick search but most likely it would be 512 mb per slot for a max of 1 GB between the two DDR slots.

at Newegg you can find DDR 266 1 GB kits (2 x 512mb) which would get you the 1 GB of ram.

Elite Group K7S5A Boot Problem

Try this... Remove all cards, hard drive(s) and cables, such as cdrom and floppy, except the video connection so that you can see what is going on. Go to the bios setup. Set all of the bios settings to default as you exit to reboot. Then try again. By setting the bios, that should take care of it. Then replace the other items, cards one by one and watch the reactions.
Hope it works.

I am working on my friends k7s5a Pro Mobo...

If you wish, tell us the socket number and we can then look up your board specifications. My guess is that the board runs pc2700 chips as the max speed possible.pc 3200 is faster(400MHZ)    than pc2700(333MHZ).
