Question about Biostar M7VIG-400 (M7VIG 400-COMBO4) Motherboard

CPU model not recognized correctly

I have a Biostar mobo Model M78VIG 400, and I am trying to upgrade the CPU to an AMD Athlon XP 2600. I updated the bios recommended by the vendor, changed the frequency jumper to 133Mhz (it has a thunderbird core), but the bios still only see the CPU as an Athlon XP 667Mhz. What am I missing?

    Sorry, messed up the model. It's a M7VIG 400.

    I would check the bios if I could, but it doesn't get that far. Either I get the BSOD or the OS keeps chugging and never fully boots. I didn't see any multiplier settings in the bios, which I thought was strange. But that's what I'm asking, is there some multiplier setting in the bios that perhaps isn't called a multiplier setting, but called somethings else, and that's why I keep missing it?

    I am having the same problem. I have a ECS K7VTA3 V8.0 motherboard. I was running a Duron 1800 with no problems. I bought an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ (266Mhz FSB) CPU and when I start the computer, the CPU is recognized as an Athlon XP 667Mhz. I can get to BIOS and up the clock rate but there are no options for multipliers. Same problem exists with the same CPU on my ECS K7S5a Pro. Maybe I have a bad CPU???

I updated the BIOS and just installed an Athlon XP 2200+ in one of these boards. At first, it recognized it as an Athlon 1600. In the frequency control section of the BIOS, it allowed me to set it as high as 132. After changing it to 132, the BIOS showed the CPU as an Athlon 2200. I've benchmarked it and ran stress tests off of the UBCD and it appears fine.

Biostar reports the board as accepting Semprons and other CPUs up to 200mhz FSB speed. Go figure. Your best bet is to upgrade the BIOS and then set the clock to 132.

Any multiplier settings in bios? try using something like CPUID in your OS to see if it clocks faster then what bios tells you?

Emachines220 celron 2.5 gig


I've had 2 emachines t2682s with celeron 2.6ghz procs, go bad. From my research it seems that the PSU goes out and takes the mobo with it. just this week i am updating the latest fatality. Thought i had the fix but new mobo only supports celeron D and P4. Just ordered new proc. Should have changed it all over to AMD like I did with the last one. Good luck finding the right mobo with 2 pata ide sockets. I'm currently trying to use a biostar P4M900-M4 but need to upgrade RAM and CPU. Could have gone with an AMD dual core set-up for same dough. Hope this helps some.

Fastest CPU available for the K7N2G?


Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.

Cpu install


If you go in to the bios you should be able to change the multyplier from x6 to x16.

Failing that try loading optimized default in the bios. :)

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)
