Question about ASUS K8V-X Motherboard

Memory upgrade problem

I have asus k8v-x motherboard and I have 2 x 512 DDR that was originally installed when I bought my computer, recently I added 1 Gb DDR (pc3200) into the last vacant slot to double up my memory. My computer doesn't have any problem with reading the memories but it is now behaving erratically like most of the time it is shutting down by itself. Please advice me what to do. Thanks.

Hi, I'm having K8V-MX Asus mother board with AMD 3000+ processor wih 1GB DDR ram, with 80 GB PATA Segate HDD connected. After adding 500GB SATA HDD to this mother board, my system performance is very low....


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!

One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive
hope this helps

I had a Asus k8v-mx motherboard which is not producing any output from last week. As per an engineer motherboard should be replaced. But the problem is the same model is not available nowadays in my place....


This is an opportunity to upgrade to a later and faster motherboard.
Desktop computer cases have standard mountings for motherboards, and any motherboard you choose can be mounted in your case.
I suggest you do a little research on the Internet for motherboards, one of my favourite motherboards is from Gigabyte,
If your components are in good order and you don't need to upgrade any components then upgrade otherwise go for a whole new computer.
Be careful you may need a higher wattage power supply for the new motherboard.

Is it possible to install more than 2gigs of sdram with a 64 bit os like win 7 can I upgrade if I can find 2x2gig modules of ddr sdram or possibly need to upgrade the cpu also.


According to this spec. sheet from a company that sales your stated mother board (Asus K8V-MX) the maximum supported RAM is only 2 gb. If this is not the model of your board you should clarify that. For installing windows 7 AMD64 you need a 64 bit processor, the ones compatible with your board are the Athlon 64 line. You should consult the documentation that was included with your product since it is the best source of information about it.

I have an asus k8v-mx motherboard running only 512 mb of ram what type of ram would suit this mother board and could i fit a 1 x 2mb ram instead of 2 x 1mb?


Dear Sir,

*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.

good luck

PC Motherboard Memory upgrade


From Asus tech: Memory 3 184-pin DIMM slots for PC1600/PC2100 DDR SDRAM
Supports up to 2GB memory
No ECC supportThis is only compatible RAM so make sure your new chip is PC1600 or PC2100. If you mis the 2 it the faster RAM will run at the slower chip speed. Hope this helps.

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.

Upgrading Ram


Hi,

Make sure you have the RAM seated in slot #1, and that you do not have DDR RAM installed as well, as DDR2 with DDR RAM will not work. Also, make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before.

QVL Found HERE
