Hi bones698, you can go to the link below & check the bios's listed for your vKM400Am-S board.
http://download.aopen.com.tw/Default.aspx

You will need to fill in the three dropdown windows as follows:
Motherboard
vKM400Am-S
Bios
I have gone over ever bios listed at AOpen.
There is one update for AMD Sempron Processor's. Version R1.01 Release date; 7/27/2004 Please double check your system at boot up for your version. Use the Pause/Break button on your keyboard to freeze your screen. This will give you the time needed to check your current bios version. To flash your bios go to pg. 40 in the manual.

Good Luck! Take your time.
Mike

    Hi martyn, If you want to increase your CPU manually you would need to change the CPU multiplier.

    (Take baby steps while doing this), or you'll cook the CPU.

Asus m3n78-vm ram increase


Well, how much have you got? and are you running a 32 or 64 bit OS? For the Max ram you can fit to your mobo go to the ASUS site and look at the spec for your board. If you have a 32 bit os you cannot use more than 3.7 GB of ram, you can use as much RAM as you can afford or will fit if you have a 64bit OS.

Hi there,
I tried to get the exact link, but the website will not allow it.

Go to this page, and put in your model number, and you will find it really easy.

This board is a socket A for AMD processors.

You will need adobe reader to get this manual.

Bartie,

First we need to properly identify your processor. You can go to AMD's website and under their Support and downloads page download a utility that can properly Identify your CPU Through codes it can read off of your chip.

If it is an Athlon 2800 this tool will tell you so. (Then it is likely your BIOS on the Motherboard just isn't recogniing it properly)

If it is an Athlon 2600 (Which I think is the more likely one) You may have purchased your Athlon from a less than reputable dealer. Who either remarked the chip themself or purchased it from a remarker at a discounted rate.

OK so now your wondering what is "Remarking" . This is when a chip dealer aquires a large amount of lower end chips then modify it by jumping some leads on the chip making it run beyond its intended rate (A process called OVERCLOCKING) and then prints a higher end processors stamp on it allowing them to sell it at a higher cost.

I hope this helps you
Dave

Cmos resetting


Ok so you know the bat is good cause you checked the voltage. You double checked the bios jumper making sure it is not set to clear. Looking in your manual you can go to AMD XP3200+, & you are under that. So either you have a short or your bios needs flashed because it's messed up. Could have went when the cpu died.
