Hi, Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either. I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: - - K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance. - Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance. - Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance. - Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%. - Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required. Hope it helps! Good Luck! CreativeTECH
Unfortunately you cannot upgrade the processor with a new one, the socket 754 is obsolete, retired 4 years ago. You might find some second hand Athlons that will fit it (fastest is 3700+) on auction sites.
That board uses AGP 8x video interface so the best one for it would be something like http://bit.ly/aX9Jrv
Go here to get the drivers: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us Choose motherboard as the component Choose Socket 754 as the next choice Then click on your model (K8V-MX) I'm thinking your CD may be damaged.
you could check if the pins of the processor aren't bent or broken...(even one single pin will make the processor malfunction and in your case it might not boot up) or you could have wronk ram modules so check the motherboard supportedmodules and check the modules you currently own.
check the website www.asus.com go to the global areaSupports AMD Socket 754 Athlon 64/ Sempron - VIA K8M800 + VT8237R - Front Side Bus 1600 MT/s - DDR400/333/266 - AMD Cool 'n' Quiet Technology - SATA (RAID0, RAID1 & JBOD) If this is your Board just type k8V to the search bar ...if still you cant download the driver i will send it to you by email... just give me your email add....
