Single or double sided RAM? Does it matter

Hi again,

You kindly provided me with somegreat info regarding upgrading my memory for my Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard. Many thanks.

Can I ask a further question, does it matter is the memory is single-sided (32Mx8) or double-sided (64Mx64)?

My existing 512MB says 32Mx8 but Ive been unable to find this info out on memory Im looking to buy online. I doesnt seem to be listed.

Do you think that this memory will be compatible:

Actually it's really recommended that you use the type of memory modules meaning if your ram is a single-sided you need to get a single-sided ram so everything will be working properly.

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

Please show much higher compatible microprocessors


As per my concern if u want to replace & ugrade all the parts then u take a NVIDIA motherboard only because , the fx5500 videocard is of NVIDIA geforce company only thats why it will suit the motherboard itself & also nvidia provides 256MB onboard videocard so if u keep fx5500 videocard free it will be all right
Let me know is this helpful to u or not

Is the asrock k7vm2 motherboard easily replace by the k7vm4 asrock. my k7vm2 is dead and replacements are not easy to come by. I'm just looking for a new mother board to hook up to my hard drive and not...


Hi,

You may be able to just swap out the motherboard for a K7VM4 motherboard but some of the specs are different like the chipset and graphics etc.

K7VM4 specs as follows >>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM400 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • Hybrid Booster - a safe overclocking feature
  • FSB 333/266/200, DDR 333/266/200
  • Integrated UniChrome 3D Graphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 8X/4X 1.5V
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100 LAN and 5.1-Ch Audio.
K7VM2 specs as follows >>>>>>>

  1. Socket A(462) for AMD processor
  2. VIA® KM266 Chipset
  • ASRock U-COP
  • DDR 266/200
  • Integrated ProSavarage8 3DGraphic.
  • 1 slot for AGP 4X/2X universal.
  • Supports both DDR and SDRAM memory modules to provide you best flexibility and save your cost.
  • ASROCK I/O - default 4 ready-to-use USB2.0 ports on rear panel, default Game/MIDI port.
  • ATA 133 supported
  • On board default 10/100LAN and Audio.

As you can see the graphics and chipsets are different although the processor sockets are the same.

This could cause problems if you are going to plug the hard drive to another board but saying that is is possibe and has been done before.

This is a chance you take when you swap out a board for a different motherboard although i suspect that the transition should go smoothly.

A fairly old motherboard like K7VM4 or K7VM2 will not cost that much these days. You will find both motherboards for sale on eBay.



Regards.

Wish to increase cpu spped and memory


Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K7VM2&s=462
The Athlon XP 2600+ CPU is the highest CPU this board can support. (It will be hard to find one).
Main web site for the K7VM2: http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VM2

Honestly, ASRock does not have drivers for Vista. Some of the drivers listed for XP may work with Vista. Your best chance is to download & run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0
(Before installing Vista in to your system).
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=42b5ac83-c24f-4863-a389-3ffc194924f8&DisplayLang=en
Vista, any version needs at least 1GB of memory. Two GB is recommended. After running Upgrade Advisor you will know if your ASRock motherboard can handle Vista. You should be able to upgrade to Vista (Over-writing XP) but only if your system passes the Upgrade Advisor.
Your best bet would be to buy a new system with Vista on it. Your ASRock board is just too old for Vista. You'll save money upgrading to a more supportive PC.

Good luck thefuncouple!
Vista is not for everyone, many users end up going back to XP.
Thank you for using fixya.

Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard Memory Upgrade


Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.

P4i65G - brand new want start.


Try getting a slower cpu, I have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 512mb of ram and it works great, I emailed them about upgrading ram and they said: "Upgrading the memory would not affect the Video card, unless the memory is not compatible with the motherboard, then the computer might not turn on at all."
