Question about Asrock 775Dual-880 Pro Motherboard

Adding memory and bios upgrading

I have 512g ddr2 533 mhz of an unknown brand and i want to buy one giga. I don´t know if it is preferable to use the dual channel possibility and remain on the same speed with 1.5 Ram or if i should instead go for 1 g of 667. I don´t really know the differences and potentialities of the dual channel but i read in the manual it was obligatory to buy from the same brand and i can´t even tell which brand it is. On the other hand i have this Pc since 2006 and i guess i should make a Bios Upgrade which i also distrust a little bit to do it on my own because someone told me it could be problematic. How hard is it for this motherboard?

Hey man, I checked the asrock website

Support DDR-II 667/533/400,
If your going to keep the 533mhz memory in your pc, then I recommend you get another 533mhz, becouse if you get a 667mhz the 667 will run as 533mhz becouse the 533mhz memory is slowing it down.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help

Athlon processor upgrade assistance:


Go to this link:

http://us.msi.com/?func=searchresult&keywords=ms-7025

Select the model motherboard you have and click on the CPU support link, it will show you a list of CPU's that are supported. You have a socket 939 board and AMD CPU's are now AM2, AM2+ and AM3 socket, which are 940 pin. It may be difficult to find a new CPU for your motherboard that is new since they have not been made in awhile.

Memory upgrade, download upgrade to run 400


According to the specs of this motherboard, it only supports 333, 266 and 200 MHz DDR SDRAM. It does not support 400 MHz DDR SDRAM.
This motherboard has only 2 memory slots, each can accommodate a 1 GB memory module. Higher capacity memory modules are not supported by this motherboard.
No BIOS upgrade is available to provide support for 400 MHz DDR SDRAM memory modules.

Dear Sir I want to upgrade my hard disk to SATA 320 GB or SATA 250 GB. But my Motherboard is Intel Corporation D845GVSR and Bios Version is VA84510A.86A.0030.0402160229 System Bus Speed is 533 MHz Sys


No, don't use a convertor. Please buy a SATA PCI addon card.
like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=pci+sata&x=0&y=0

the above card will do alot better job than a converter, if you don't have sata and you don't have room for the card then its best that you buy IDE drive which 250GB or more.

thanks and good luck.

How do I determine what kind of memory that I need?


Go to Crucial.com and install their configuration utility through your browser. They will tell you what you have and all the combinations you can do to max out your system. Look at the specs of the RAM and you can get it from Crucial or some other vendor.

Large hard drive


Yes it will. Mostly it is the operating system that will allow the drive to be see at its full size. Suggest you use Win XP home with at least SP1 but Win XP Pro with SP2 is faster & very stable. Also suggest you set the drive up with the Mfg's disk utilites. Bootable floppy or bootable CD. If using plain XP home you can still install the OS & than download a free trial of Partition magic which will allow you to combine any smaller partitions to get you up to you 250GB size. (only if you have a problem though.
