Re: RE: mother board not going on
Hi marlonvig, what type of memory (PC3200? or PC2700) memory are you using? What type in which slot?
The decription (In you're manual), refering to you're memory can be confusing.
You're manual says you can use up to 1GB of
PC3200 DDR400MHz only in Slot 1.
If you add DDR400MHz into slot 2. The board will not support it. (weird)!
If you want to reach 2GB of memory. You must use PC2700 (DDR333)MHz. 2x1GB PC2700 = 1GB DIMMS in both DIMM 1 & 2. You're board does not support DDR2 type memory.

you cannot upgrade it since it is a socket 478 board (Intel 845), the highest you can go is a 2.6Ghz Pentium 4 (I have one somewhere I think). You can upgrade the memory if you can find the stick for it (DDR1 266Mhz).
the motherboard is the heart or core of the computer. if you change it you will be forced to change it fot the same model (no upgadre exist, well a new computer will be a upgrade).
so if yoy take of the moder board you will be left with the other componenst like; the dvd reader, ram memory, procesor, modem, cables, and whatever you computer had.
so even if yoy manage to get an android motherboard (is a moderboard that is made to put diferent brand of components in it) and put the components that were left of the pavilion, you will get the same performance as your old pavilion.
if you whant to increase the performance of that hp pavillion 7940. look for upgrades for the moder board of that computer. like a better memory module. or a better video card for better graphics. i dont think that the processor can be changed in some models they are fixed to the moder board or the mother board will not support any other kind of processor.
*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.
I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel
