Question about MSI KM4M-L Motherboard

1 Answer

HDD Size Recognition

I've built a computer using "Scraps" over an MSI KM4M-L Board. It has an Athlon XP-M 2500+ 1867 MHz Socket A CPU, I fitted a Seagate ST310212A 10.2 Gig HDD, this is formatted but no XP Loaded yet. I have another Seagate ST34311A 4.3 Gig Drive that I want to use as a slave, I've fitted these in and when it boots to DOS level the Master reports as follows in the Phoenix Award BIOS Setup: Capacity 10243Mb, Cyl 19846, Head 16, Sect 63. If I select Manual I dont seem to be able to enter the parameters as shown on the drive cover. Please can you advise if I can fix this.

Hi, 10243MB is 10.02 GB..

You will not get exactly 10.2GB out of the drive, as most HDD makers use the 1000MB = 1GB ratio, as really 1024MB = 1GB.

So the bios is detecting the drive correctly.

Upgrade CPU on Matsonic MS8147C+


Unfortunately I think the Athlon XP is a 462 pin package and the MS8147C+ has a SocketA/Socket 462 socket for the CPU. The Athlon 64 3800+ is a 940 pin package and requires a AM2 socket, so this CPU will not physically fit.

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.

I would like to find the spec manual and what cpu slot it has.


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.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

This board is a socket A for AMD processors.

You will need adobe reader to get this manual.

I have AMD Athlon XP 2200+ m7vit bravo m-b


All current 333 MHz capable Socket A chipsets (VIA KT333, KT400, nVIDIA nForce2, SiS 746FX) should be compatible with Barton based processors although you may need to flash the BIOS for the processor to recognized properly
your board has a 333mhz front side bus so should be capable of running them
You must ensure that the cpu is for 333 mhz and not more and that it fits socket A which your board is
Please post rating thanks

According to their website, the board can take:

AMD Athlon XP (Throughbred up to XP2600+)
AMD Athlon (including Thunderbird)
AMD Duron (including Morgan)


You can then overclock the processor with a BIOS upgrade available at http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm.

It has one 4X AGP slot so it can take any AGP video card, assuming the card is backwards compatible (8x -> 4x).

PROCESSOR


Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)
