Question about ASUS A8V-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Processor I have A8V-VM mainboard, I had never encount any problem with it, but now I am considering the idea of upgrading my pc. Currently I have AMD Athlon 64 3200+ MMX, and it's equivlent to 2.00GHz. I want to buy new one, but because I am not good with this computer stuff I dont know if the new one will suit my mainboard. I was hoping to buy AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ (3.2 GHz) Socket AM2 L2 2MB (2x1MB), can you tell me if it's going to siut it. Or maybe I could even get better one, if yes can you tell me what is my limit with that. The second thing is the graphic card, now i have Geforce 7300 with PCI express connection and i want to get Geforce 8800 Ultra. Although both have PCI express, but the 8800 have in describtion of 16PCI express, so I dont know if my mainboard going to handle it If know then I think there no sense for me to upgrade it, but instead of doing this I guess I will have to buy new mainboard or computer and do everything form the begining, in that case can you tell what would you recommend, what is the good mainboard in reasonable price, where i could plug new processor and the rest of stuff. I know that is quite a lot questions, but I really need a proffesional advice, as a last thing I want to say sorry for my language, I still havent mastered english so forgive me.

I have missed the motherboard Cd for my A8V-VM SE with AMD processors so which are the drivers are to be loaded so as to detect the sound card and VGA


Download the drivers you need from Asus;
http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=A8V-VM%20SE
Realtek Audio Driver and VIA Onboard VGA Driver.
Once the site above loads you'll need to click on the drop down menu and click on you're operating system.

Thats it!
Good luck

Compatibility


A8V-MXs are built for AMD processors. You will need a board made for Intel processors if you want to purchase the above processor. If you want to stick with Intel and Asus check out the P5 series of boards. If not, buy an AMD chip...I've had AMD in almost every one of my computers, laptops and desktops.

Good luck.

Mic issues


A8V-VM SE FRONT PANEL AUDIO does not work. The back panel audio speaker port works ok but not the MIC port. I have built over 100 pcs with different motherboards & procesors including several other Asus MoBo both Intel and AMD types. BIOS flas did not help. Asus tech support /knowledge base is useless to find answers.
If anyone has had this problem and solved it , please pot your answer.
Thanks
