Problem is, no one really makes 478 motherboards anymore.. so it will be difficult finding one with close enough specs to use same OS, when trying this there is no This will work or will not work" basically you are going to have to try your luck with one and if it works, it works.. if not.. tough luck.. you want to stick with same chipset, same socket and same ram type.. usually if i get those the same i have been able to start windows on the new board OK.. but like i said you will have to try it and see theres no guarentees with this kind if thing microsoft dont recommend it

I need the manual for the Abit TH7 raid motherboard to match the 1.4G intel Pentium 4 processor


The old Abit TH7 RAID mobo, ay?

http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/motherboards/925_2.html


The Socket 478 motherboard uses an Intel 82850 Northbridge chip, and Intel 82801BA Southbridge chip, for the motherboard chipset.
(ICH2 is 82801BA)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

(Intel's term for their Northbridge chip is MCH. Memory Controller Hub,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics.

{The Abit TH7 RAID mobo has an Accelerated Graphics Port expansion slot, for a graphics card. AGP)

A graphics (Video) card inserted into a PCI expansion slot, or Integrated Graphics,
is Not high-speed graphics.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

As you can see in the chart on Wikipedia the FSB support for the Intel 850 chipset (Intel 82850) is 400MHz.

In conclusion, you know now that you can use an Intel Pentium 4 processor,
A) That fits in a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Has a maximum Front Side Bus frequency rate ('Speed') of 400MegaHertz. (FSB 400MHz)

Hi i have ms 6714 mother board how to know its 040 or 020


1) The Micro Star International MS-6714-020 motherboard uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.

Underneath the Heatsink on the Northbridge chip is the part number Intel 82845GV.
On the Southbridge chip the part number is Intel 82801DB. (ICH4)


2) The MSI MS-6714-040 motherboard use an Intel 845GE motherboard chipset.

Underneath the aluminum ribbed Heatsink on the Northbridge chipset is the part number Intel 82845GE.
On the Southbridge chip the part number is Intel 82801DB. (ICH4)

List of Intel Chipsets, and specifically the one's for the Pentium 4's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

How to know the difference without knowing what part number is on the Northbridge chip?
Easy.

The Intel 845GE supports Integrated Graphics, and AGP (AGP 4X)

There is an AGP expansion slot on the motherboard for using an AGP graphics card.

The Intel 845GV supports Integrated Graphics only.

There is No AGP expansion slot.
Just the three white PCI expansion slots.

Building desktop: no beeps, no video The mobo LED are on, fan is running but getting no signal to monitor. I've tested the video card in another pc and confirmed working. The only time the mobo beeps...


If the cpu was bad- nothing would turn on--be sure the cable is good-- also be sure the VGA is enabled in the bios- since you cant see the video you have to reset the cmos setting--unplug the unit and remove the cmos battery-reinstall after one minute and check for video

open device manager and i m sure that it will be given under system devices because all the devices that does not come under
unidentified devices are in the system devices list check it there or instead use some software like driver detective to find all the devices connected to the computer and get their device drivers

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard


Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
