You will have to look for PC2100 (DDR266), PC2700 (DDR333), PC3200 (DDR400) memory, because DDR2 (and other types) are not supported. Only these 3 are supported.
This website lists memory for you motherboard, but I don't think it is the cheapest. Just have a look around. Every memory that's of the above types will work with your motherboard

Hi There, i wonder or you can help me please. one of my friends gave me a motherboard. but with no other components. can you please help me what to buy for my new motherboard. CPU tipe, memory and so on....

My friend, this is a lot like saying my friend gave me a spoon, what kind of a stove should I purchase?

Go purchase a computer if you want one. Beyond your initial question, you have not given any of the specifics concerning the board ... what CPU socket it might have, kind of slots. Do you have a cabinet? A power supply? Might you have ANY componelt that might be used on this un-named board? Is the board even any good?????

What form factor does your new mother board take? Will it fit into an existing cabinet you have? Will the power supply you might have fit your board?

The nicest thing I might say my friend is put your new board on Craig's list or E-bay and get a coule bucks from it.

Thank you for your interest in

My motherboard pc chips m925g v9.1b have a trouble

The best thing to do is strip down your motherboard down to just the cpu. Power it up and see if it will power up okay. Then start adding things back on, starting with your memory. If you have more than one memory stick, put one in at a time. You will keep doing this until you find the part that stops the system from booting. That will tell you what part is not working.

How to upgrade the RAM

1Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Computers Memory
  1. Step 1 Check the owner's manual or motherboard manual to determine if RAM is parity or non-parity. The website of the company you purchased the computer from usually will tell you what kind of memory your computer needs as well.
  2. Step 2 Find out the speed of RAM (for example, 60 nanoseconds).
  3. Step 3 Determine whether the computer uses single in-line memory modules (SIMMs) or dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs).
  4. Step 4 Find out whether the computer uses regular, FPM, EDO, or Synch DRAMor DDR1/DDR2.
  5. Step 5 Determine the number of pins on the motherboard: 30, 72 or 168.
  6. Step 6 Remove the cover from the machine to find the number of open RAM slots. Look for between two and eight same-sized parallel sockets on the main circuit board. Usually at least two of those sockets will contain RAM - ruler-shaped circuit boards with chips on one or both sides.
  7. Step 7 Purchase additional RAM that matches existing memory specifications.
  8. Step 8 See the Related eHow "How to Install RAM" to learn how to put in RAM yourself; you can also get it installed (recommended if you don't feel comfortable opening up your computer case).

Tips & Warnings
  • You usually have to install SIMMs in pairs.
  • If you don't know how much RAM you have installed currently, check your My Computer properties in Windows or choose About This Macintosh from the Apple menu.

Sony motherboards

All motherboards are capable of failing. Sony's boards aren't any different.

My personal experience with Sony boards is that they're usually pretty stable compared to HP's DV series which are really problematic.

Sony's boards are usually a bit more expensive too depending on the model of course.

Let me know if you need any specifics or have any other questions.

Best of luck!
