Usually this is a BIOS problem.
Go to the MSI website and make sure you got the latest BIOS for the board, and upgrade it if you need too.

While there, download the operating manual (usually a PDF file) and look where it tells you what kind of memory is compatible with it.
You might have to put memory in slots in a certain order.
I.E. Memory in slots 0 and 2 first.
And, or, in particular on older boards the memory might have to be the same size sticks, etc.

I got a problem with my msi km4m 1 long beep repeating... i re-inserted the memory but the beep still there?


First clean the gold contact points of ur mem card w/ eraser head, and avoid touching it!
When u inserted the mem card try to wiggle it so that the contact in the slot will have the contact will be seated!
Or
Try another mem card, maybe ur mem card is busted already!

Memory upgrade


yes you are
take your information to your pc shop and explain what you want to do.
They will then direct you in what type of memory and how much memory your system can take.
( A smaller pc repair shop will give you better advice and a better price then a major shop.)

Memory Problems (MSI KM4M-V Motherboard)


if you know the make and model number of the memory sticks you will need to contact the manufacturer to find the voltage specifications so you can adjust the bios accordingly. Or do a google search with the model number and make of the memory stick for voltage details

My pc freezes :(


Hi redjeans21,
There can be a verity of reasons that can cause you to loose display. I'll list some suggestions you can try that may fix this issue. After each suggestion try the game that freezes the system more often than the others. (If you have never cleaned the inside of your system please do so). Use canned air & blow out the guts of the motherboard & power supply).
First, please make sure your antivirus software is up to date & run a full system scan. If you need a virus scanner you can download & install AVG for free at this link. http://free.avg.com/ww.download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition Once you are sure your system is clean let’s run a test on your system memory. Click on the link below to download memtest86 software. http://memtest.org/
Scroll down the page until you see three monitor snap shots. Download either. (Suggest the floppy software which is the easiest to use). For bootable floppy disk test software download, (Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win). To create bootable CD test software, (Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip). Boot your system with either disk, floppy or CD & test your memory. You'll know if there is a problem & you'll know what you need to do. (Let’s hope its ok).
The integrated VGA video card is not the greatest for playing games. The reason it is not is because the onboard video uses your system memory to function. Part of your 512MB of system memory goes to your video card & windows XP needs all of the 512MB. It's suggested that an XP system run with 1GB. 512MB is still ok. System freezes are more likely caused by software, including registry errors. Download & run this free registry cleaner. http://www.pctuneuptips.com/recommends/clean/?gclid=CL2RiIrTmpICFSFMGgodODIPzg
Restart your system after the cleaner has finished. Next try running windows check disk. Right click once on My Computer & slide to & left click Open. Right click on C: & slide to & left click Properties.
Left click the Tools tab & than click, Check Now... for Error-checking. Your system will restart & run check disk. Lastly, buy an AGP graphics card & disable the onboard video. The MSI KM4M-L motherboard can only run an AGP card that supports 1.5 volts. This link is a 1.5v AGP card:
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4097741&CatId=318
The card above comes with a 2 year warranty.
More AGP's: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2145957&CatId=318

If nothing above has helped or fixed the freezing issue, I would do a fresh install of windows, including a format of the hard disk drive.

Good luck redjeans21!

KM4M-L and graphics cards/memory queries


I would hate to burst the bubble but if you buy any DDR2 memory, then you will be wasting your money.
This motherboard only supports standard DDR upto 333mhz and only 2gig max of that.

Video card wise, then an ATI 9800 Pro can be had cheaply or an nVidia 6800 AGP version can be purchased new.

Hope it helps =)
