Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Soyo P4VGA MB. When I purchased the board I made a huge mistake a nd installed only 256mg of DDR. Since then, I tryed to install a second stick of 256 DDR (same brand and specs) but the computer goes nutty. Crashes, freezes...etc. I pull the new ram, and it goes back to normal. I want to boost my ram to 1 gig (by putting a single stick of ram) but do not want to invest the money if the upgrade will not work. Any ideas?

Take both ram sticks out and turn the PC on. If it makes no sound at all with the stick out this means you have a problem with the mother board. If it screams like a banshie the board should be okay. Try putting the new stick in the slot where the old one is and the old one in the other slot. It might read it that way, no guaranties this will work but it won't hurt. It is also possible you got a bad stick. It does happen.

Hope this helped.
Good Luck

Soyo SY-P4VGA bios. how do i get it and how do i install it without video.


To get the bios you'll need to buy a bios chip from the net, im sure their are site flooding around if you google them. For installing a bios without a video card or a monitor connected. Im not sure if that would be easy. Or even possible if you dont have any certification as a professtional PC tech.

Changed cmos bat. now not working.


This sounds as though you inadvertently disconnected your video connector or knocked something slightly off on your motherboard. Please ensure all cards/components sit snuggly in their slots and verify all connections. The battery should not affect the system's operation, except for the system time, which in newer versions of Windows is set automatically.
Good luck!

I have an asus k8v-mx motherboard running only 512 mb of ram what type of ram would suit this mother board and could i fit a 1 x 2mb ram instead of 2 x 1mb?


Dear Sir,

*********** 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.

good luck
