Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Processor up grade

I saw the page you referred me to but I didn't see my AA# in the section for the 550E thru 850mhz processors. You're sure my motherboard will support a 800mhz processor? Thanks for your help

    The only thing is that you may have to update the bios first

    You need to have the motherboard running with a cd or a floppy. you boot from cd/floppy with a media you recorded/burned using the bios update that you download from factory here.

    It is not a difficult operation, but if for any case it fails (eg.bad media ) then you risk to fry your MB.

    Bios update procedures may vary. follow the instructions.

Blackout in Motherboard, what is the problem

1) Not trying to sound like 'Mr.Negative' here, but even a new Power Supply can be bad. Happens.


I see Electrolytic Capacitors all over that motherboard.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be more specific)

Leads me to the following;

If you have tested the three main voltages coming out of the Power Supply, 3.3 Volts (DC), 5 Volts (DC), and 12 Volts (DC), and know the Power Supply is good, take a look at the capacitors on the motherboard.

Look at the one's immediately surrounding the Processor socket.
THESE are used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, for the Processor.

They are NOT the only ones, used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, and specifically referring to the one's for the Processor.

There are others not close to the Processor socket, that are also used. (For voltage regulation for the Processor)

What am I 'talking' about?
A Processor has to have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage.
It MUST also be kept in the voltage range for the Processor.
Cannot have too much, or too little voltage.

More on the motherboard voltage regulator circuit,

Upon reading the article it will detail how to find all of the capacitors, that deal with voltage regulation for the Processor. You have to follow the circuit traces on the motherboard.

Visual identification of bad Electrolytic Capacitors,

{NOTE* Sometimes the Electrolytic Paste inside the capacitor dries up, and the capacitor shows no outward visual signs of failure ]

Find some bad Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors?
Identifying manufacturer, and codes, for values,

One place I recommend to buy Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors,

[In the fields;

A) Manufacturer: Leave alone
B) Lead Style: Leave alone.
C) Capacitance: Click on the value you need.
D) Tolerance: Leave alone
E) Voltage Rating: Click on the value you need
F) Operating Temperature Range: Leave alone.
G) Termination Style: Radial

H) Dimensions: Leave alone. In the examples in the chart that will come up, you can find the Outer Diameter, and Length you need.

I) Product: Computer Grade Electrolytic Capacitors, but you may want to leave alone. All the capacitors that will be listed in the chart, ARE computer grade, at least.

Now click on -> Apply Filters <- stated under the fields to the Right.
Scroll the page down.

{ Remember these capacitors are rated in MicroFarads. -> uf, not PicoFarads, ->pf. Scroll it down }

Also, hope whoever had the motherboard before you, knew about Anti-Static Precautions. You have been following them, right?

Processor also has fresh, new thermal paste on it? Heatsink is seated tightly, and level on Processor?

The 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable is plugged in?

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Motherboard processor is heating up even with fan and shuts down computer after 5 minutes

dear alton,
its common problem with your processor heat and its sensor in your motherboard.
the problem is at the cooling system witch is your fan.
cooling system can work properly only if
1. your fan is working.(I'm sure its)
2. the aluminium aloy (heat sink) is capable to transferring heat from your processor (i recommend the original one)
3. thermal paste to joining the surface processor to aluminium aloy (heat sink) is a good grade.
4. the surface of your aluminium aloy (heatsink) is smooth.

if you want read more you can go to.

hope help.

There are many issues to consider when overclocking and the first is to be sure that you have extra cooling for your processor. On this motherboard I do not recommend overclocking but since ASUS says that it can be done I will try to give you some places to get information on your A7V880 system. If you do not have your user's manual, you can go to the link below and download one. . Leave the OVER_VOLT1 jumper on the motherboard on the default of pins 1 & 2. Refer then to section 2.4.5 on pages 2-21,22 of the User's Manual for Jumper Free configuration overclocking settings. In BIOS Setup I suggest a CPU Multiple of 10 or less. If you choose to use the AI Overclock Tuner instead, a setting of [Overclock 20%] or less would be best. The VCORE Voltage setting will depend on the specs for the CPU that you are using. If you don't know leave it at Auto. As I said before, overheating of the CPU is a problem in overclocking and you can monitor the temperature via the Hardware Monitor. Refer to section 2.5.6 on page 2-26 of the manual. Modern cpu overclocking normally does not exceed 20% safely unless you are willing to spend a lot of money on liquid cooling and frequent replacement of damaged processors. I would be interested in hearing whether you decide to overclock or continuing with your present settings.

The Ol' Asus A7V266-E?
1.The fastest Front Side Bus setting is 266MHz
2.Uses Socket 462 AMD processors
3.Uses Athlon, Athlon XP, and Duron AMD processors.

I would stick with an AMD Athlon XP. Fastest one? Hmmm, I believe that would be the AMD Athlon XP 2600+
The one that operates at 2133MHz with a FSB of 266MHz. Part number AXDA2600DKV3C

Here is the Motherboard Manual for your Asus A7V266-E, (It's a PDF file download. Let it download all the way before looking through it)

If the above direct link does not work for you, then go here, (Click on -> Download <- all the way to the right of -> File:a7v266e-100.pdfVersion:--Release Date:--)

Go to Page 19, Item 2. NO POWER connected to computer, make sure the SYSCLK (System Clock) DIP switches are set to 133MHz.
1, 2, 3, and 4 are set to the OFF position for 133MHz.
All you will see is the ON. The switches go to the opposite side as shown in Item 2.

I'm sure they are set there however, as your 1900+ you have in right now, uses a 266MHz FSB.
I should explain.
AMD processors are Double-Pumped. Therefore the 133MHz setting will become 266MHz for the processor. (Intel processors are Quad-Pumped.

They are both the same Core, (Thoroughbred A/B, Model 8, 130nm), so a BIOS update shouldn't be necessary.

Which frequency of processor for QDI motherboard BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG

hey there.

If you are planning to upgrade the processor with the latest one then it is not possible without upgrading your motherboard.

Because as per all the bus and system configuration requirement with ur CPU you must give the recommended bus speed, bus lines, Address lines, Ram supportive slot, and RAM Frequency.

Your motherboard must suuport all those requirement if you are upgrading ur Processor.

You are right that ur motherboard can only work with PIII CPU.

Upgrade ur motherboard with atleast of 845,945G Chipset to support up to core2 Duo Processor in Intel. OR with A8V-VM and above in Asus Motherboard.

(Gimme your acknowledge by rating me)
