Someone from my family has a D1675 mainboard with a loose contact in the 478 Socket. So I need a new D1675 mainboard for him. Because he has Vista running choosing any other mainboard for changing is not the best idea.
If someone knows where I could get a D1675 Mainboard on planet earth, please get in contact with me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have two of them. I would be willing to trade one for a working solution as to why I can't get my system to boot. It has something to do with the AGP card because it will only boot all the way to the desktop when you have exactly the right combination of memory, disc drive, and video card. I think it has something to do with the motherboard being a 1.5v video bus.? I have tried 5 different working video cards and the only one that will let the system boot properly is a dell horizontal desktop card that dosent fit because of the mounting system but if you remove the bracket it fits and boots properly. I'll give you both if you can find me a socket 478 mother board with an 8x AGP slot, 800mhz fsb with slots for at least 2g of 400mhz ddr and an intel southbridge. An ASrock p4i65g would do nicely. You can contact me at email@example.com.

what u mean compatible? if u mean u want to change your ms 6540 to Asus P5S800-VM, then i tell u it cannot be done.
first thing that u look when to change mainboard is SOCKET type...
ms 6540 have socket type 478 and asus p5s800-vm have socket type LGA775. thats mean your old processor cannot be use in asus. socket 478 is older than LGA775.
So if u want to change your mainboard for ASUS P5S800-vm, then u need to change your processor to... about RAM socket and VGA socket, ms 6540 have same type with ASUS P5S800 (DDR400) so u dont need to change your RAM and VGA (if u use external VGA)
hope this useful, regards.
The best way of knowing for sure is to find the Socket that your computer mainboard uses. The socket information can be found either on the CPU socket or written on the mainboard nearby. Acer normally uses Intel. Therefore could be either, Socket 478, 775. I think it will be 775 as 478 is a bit old.
If it says Core 2 Duo then you know for certain that it is Socket 775. I think 3.2GHz or there abouts is the max it goes to.
Just a thought, instead of upgrading, sell your PC and then buy another one. I myself would go for either an Intel i3/i5 or an AMD Phenom 2 X2 560 or 565.
hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you. Friend your 478 mainboard doesnt work.? All you have to do is to check the hardware attached on it like hard drive video card memory and most of all the power supply cable.be sure you seated it very well to avoid loose connection. this can cause no display or not working. try to check alson if your pwer supply has enough current to support the mainboard and alson the processor compatiblity with the mainboard. good luck hope i helped you.
you can use any mainboard that supports your CPU and memory, look for a board that has same memory slots, most likely DDR memory and supports the voltage your P4 needs. Most likely, (double check by searching the code on top of the cpu in google or wikipedia), your cpu is a socket 478, code name Willamate.
Once you have that, look up motherboard manufacturer websites and search by the socket 478 and make sure the memory is the same type DDR or even older SDRAM. (try Gigabyte.com.tw, MSI.com.tw, DFI.com.tw, ASUS.com)
