DDR Well, the specific issue is to switch over to DDR memmories. Definitvely, some jumpers should be set and maybe something more too (bios, BUS speed, frequency?). Radek

I would download the manual for your motherboard and check to see what needs to be done,however i think the bios will sort out what ram you have installed in the slots,i am assuming you have both sdram slot & ddr ram slot.
you do not say in your post what board you have so cant direct you to where the manual may be .

good luck
Terry

If you check your quick install sheet it shows that u have to alternate slots to enable DDR(1,3)(2,4) or all populated. My mob was already set for DDR

Motherboard p3v4x : during bootup i get a system


Hi,
This error is usually caused by an incorrect setting of either bus speed or multiplier (or sometimes processor chip operating voltage). These could be set either by software ie in BIOS or by changing tiny switches mounted on the motherboard.
Have you consulted your motherboard manual?
Try here: http://www.motherboards.org/files/manuals/1/p3v4x-102.pdf
or try the ASUS website and look under support or the discussion forums.
This will help: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx

These freq and voltage settings are set under BIOS which is usually accessed by hitting the DELETE key on your keyboard after turning on your computer.
Sometimes a quick fix is to enter BIOS as per the above instruction and selecting LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS or something similar to that and then save and exit BIOS and allow the computer to reboot.. That may get you to the point of booting up without the improper freq comb error.
If you have no luck playing with the above info, shut down your computer and remove the left hand side cover on your computer box or tower, so you can access the inner workings of your computer.
Remove the cooling fan from your processor chip. It will be a large square or circular (black or silver colour).
Take a look at your processor chip. Note the part number printed on the chip, which is only visible after you remove the cooling fan. For example it may say for example SL52P or something else. It may also be an AMD chip.
Search the internet for its specifications ie search for SL52P.
For example, if it was a Pentium 3 chip running at 800 Mhz go to google and search for specs of P3 800 Mhz processor with the part number SL52P.
Google returns the following info (based on the example above) of:
http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL52P
ie its a chip that runs at 800Mhz speed with the memory running at 133 Mhz (800 mhz processor speed obtained by having the multiplier set to 6 but actually means the memory is running at 133 MHZ but the processor running at 6 times the speed of the memory bus ie 133x6=800 MHZ (one of the settings you need to get right in your BIOS settings)
So if you had this chip, in BIOS you would select 133 bus speed, with the multiplier of 6 usually locked down on the processor physical internal wiring.
If your BIOS doesnt allow you to play with the processor and memory bus settings (commonly done to make the processor overclock to a faster speed) the other option is that you have the DIP switches on your motherboard set to the wrong settings. Again, refer to to your motherboard manual. The DIP switches are tiny plastic switch blocks on the motherboard with a row of (usually) white sliding switches.

What is the purpose of the diagram of jumper setting?


The jumper settings (if this is the one you are speaking about) are for clearing the BIOS (times, dates, hardware etc...). The diagram is probably showing the settings on which pins to jump when clearing.

Hope this helps.

Memory upgarade


Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

Upgrading CPU on Asus PSBW-LA motherboard


Dealing with OEM PC's can be rather difficult. Most of the specifications on those chips are the same, except the FSB (Front System Bus). The E6300 is 1066MHz and the E6550 is 1333MHz. I don't believe that this is set by jumpers (i'm 95% sure). I would look into BIOS to see if it is an available option to change (though most of the time this setting is set on AUTO). There is a chance that you will need to provide a BIOS update. If you chose to do this be very careful as this is dangerous. Should something interupt this (power outage or something like that) your computer could become useless. Definitely make sure to do a lot of research and preparation before performing an update.

Hav K7T266 Pro2 motherboard, can not get it to go past turning on


Lorna,
to change bus to 133 MHz, you need to unlock the speed by setting a corresponding jumper on the board to assign busspeed by bios. After doing so, you need to clear CMOS and reboot. Next you'll have to set speed and multiplier in bios. Ideally: 900MHz = 100 x 9. Alternatively: 133 x 6.5 If that doesn't help...check if your RAM-modules are any good anymore. When RAM is not functioning, CPU-error code may be presented, since CPU cannot read/write to RAM, therefore not function. Let me know how this turns out.
Kind regards,
Stephan

Memory upgrade from ddr 256mb to ddr2 1g


there is a jumper setting to slect which type of memory you want to use, check your manual for details on how to change it

1> enusre the rams are in correctly
2>ensure your main board supports the amount of memory and the speed of the memory
3> verify jumper select to correct memory type is set correctly

if the main board aint compatable with the memory you brought that will cause the same problem
