USB Power Issue with ASRock K8 Combo m/b

I have recently inherited an ASRock K8 Combo m/b. With Athlon 64 3000+ (Socket 754). I have installed XP Pro Sp2. Everything goes OK untill I try to install a USB device that requires system power. On installing the device, the system just powers off, until the USB lead is removed. If I install a USB device that has it's own power, I don't get this issue. I'm running a 550w EZcool PSU. Any ideas?

AsRock Support > AlivenF6G-DVI Motherboard > Main Support page,

http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=ALiveNF6G-DVI

In the list on the left hand side, click on CPU Support List

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=CPU&Model=ALiveNF6G-DVI

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+ CPU, (Processor), is part number ADA5800IAA5DO.
Operates Up To a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 3.0GigaHertz, has two L2 cache's of 512MegaByte, and uses the Socket AM2 CPU socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#.22Brisbane.22_.28energy-efficient_65W.2C_G1_.26_G2.2C_65_nm.29

In the CPU Support :List it is not shown.
This is ONLY because the Athlon 64 X2 5800+, came out way after the CPU Support List was compiled. NOT because it isn't supported.

No, I have to amend that,

http://forums.amd.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=14&threadid=108319

It's because AMD's lack of information, apparently, that AsRock didn't list it.

I don't see the voltage range listed anywhere. (To include AMD)

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%20X2%205800+%20-%20ADA5800IAA5DO.html

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103274

At any rate let's go with deductive reasoning, and see if this CPU is supported.

1) You can compare the Athlon 64 X2 5800+, to the other CPU's in the CPU Support List; that are comparable to it, and above it.

Don't even have to go too far.
Look at the ADA6000IAA6CZ, and the ADX6000IAA6CZ CPU's.

The two Athlon 64 X2 6000+ versions.
(Doesn't state that, just the above part numbers)

However I DO notice that the ADX requires BIOS version P2.00, and the ADA only requires BIOS version P1.60
(Since BIOS)

2) The motherboard chipset is an Nvidia GeForce 6100 and Nvidia nForce 430, Or Nvidia GeForce 6150SE and Nvidia nForce 430

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_chipsets#For_AMD_processors

Compatible? Yes.
May need the P2.00 BIOS update, if not already installed.

Wanted to know what year it wasand if anygood?


Made in mid-year of 2005.

Any good?

Depends on what you wish a computer to do.

ONE:
The AMD Sempron line of Processors, are a Budget line of Processors.
Equate to comparing an Intel Celeron to an Intel Pentium.
(Celeron's are Budget/Starter processors)

[ The 'Sempy', and the 'Celey' have half of the Cache, that a comparable Athlon, or Pentium has.

(Cache for a Processor, is the first memory area that the Processor accesses.
The Cache operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

Cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor)

Crude explanation of a Processor's cache;

You are writing a paper for college. You need more information for it.
Where is the information?

In a book, down in the basement, under the stairs, last book on the bottom in a box, and there is no basement light.

Down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand. Dig the book out, back up the stairs, open the book to the page you need.

You find you need more information, but it isn't in that book.
Yep, back down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand.

OR,
You could click a couple of keys on the keyboard in front of you, and have the information in seconds on your computer.

Basement scenario = Small processor cache
Computer scenario = Large processor cache ]

AMD Sempron:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Sempron

List of AMD Sempron microprocessors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Sempron_microprocessors

2) HP Support > Compaq Presario SR1403WM desktop computer > Main Menu,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00257657&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=501310&lang=en

Note the supported Processors.
Note the processor socket type used; Socket 754.

Note the maximum Total amount of ram memory.

(2GB's of PC3200 ram memory will get you by just fine.
PC3200 is DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz.
{400MHz)

Me?
Again, depends on what you wish to do with the computer.

The AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, (That uses a Socket 754 processor socket), can operate at a maximum frequency rate, ('Speed') of 1.8GigaHertz.
(1800MegaHertz)

I would try to find an Athlon 64 that uses a Socket 754 processor socket.
Here is one example I just found from searching, (Not advertising for this person, or website. Just an example of what to look for)

http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-64-3200-Socket-754-CPU-BRAND-NEW-/320559466147?pt=CPUs

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (Socket 754)
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 2.2GHz
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 512KiloByte's.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%203200+%20-%20ADA3200AIO4BX%20%28ADA3200BXBOX%29.html

(In comparison, the AMD Sempron 3000+ can operate up to a frequency rate of 1.8GHz.
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 128KB.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Sempron%203000%2B%20-%20SDA3000AIP2AX.html

Bump the Processor up, max out the Ram Memory, (2GB), install a decent PCI graphics card, and you'll be okay for basic internet, and watching a few movies. Even game playing if the game isn't too intense.
(War of Worlds at low settings, mmm okay
CS:S? Mmmmm, no)

Around my area, the computer tower by itself would sell for around $100 USD. With monitor, (Depending on type), keyboard, and optical mouse, (Throw the roller mouse in the trash), the price goes up.

Refurbished?

1) Generally means the inside of the computer, and the inside of the Power Supply, has been cleaned out. (May be a new cheap quality generic Power Supply installed instead)

2) Thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has been replaced. (Better be)

3) New Harddrive, with a fresh GENUINE copy of Windows installed.
This bumps the price up. Especially if Windows 7 has now been installed.

[Microsoft makes one master disk of an Operating System. Then GENUINE copies are made from it, and sold]

Look up the price of an IDE (PATA) harddrive, with the appropriate size. (150GB, 250GB, and so on)

Then find out which version of Windows 7 has been installed, and look up that price. Or whatever Windows operating system has been installed.

Add these two prices to a base price of $100 to $150, and see how the price compares to what is being offered to you.

CPU Upgrade-Which Sockel?


Here is some information may be useful to you. Intel processors Socket 1 169 pins 486 SX/DX Socket 2 238 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2 Socket 3 237 pins 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4 Socket 6 235 pins 486 DX4 Socket 4 273 pins Pentium 60 en 66MHz Socket 5 320 pins Pentium 75 t/m 200MHz Socket 7 321 pins Pentium, AMD K6/K6-2/K6-3, Cyrix M1/M2 Socket 8 387 pins Pentium Pro 150 - 200MHz Slot 1 242 pins PII, PIII en Celeron Slot 2 330 pins PII Xeon en P III Xeon Socket 370 370 pins PIII, Celeron, Cyrix III Socket 423/478 423/478 pins Pentium4 Socket 603 603 pins Pentium4 Xeon PAC418 418 pins Intel Itanium PAC611 611 pins Intel Itanium 2 AMD processors Slot A 242 pins Athlon Socket A 453 pins Athlon, Athlon XP, Athlon MP and Duron Socket 754 754 pins AMD Athlon 64 Socket 940 940 pins AMD Opteron Conclusion: You can not upgrade beacuse Armada M700 has a pentium III processor with 370 pins. So the Socket 478 pinned pentium is not suitable. Advise: Try to exchange it with a new laptop or buy a used laptop for suitabl configuration
