According to PCChips, the maximum CPU & memory supported for all three is the Intel P4 Northwood (HT) 3.06 GHz 512K,533FSB,Socket 478 and 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 266.

Be sure you have the latest BIOS version for your motherbaord.

M925ALU (V7.3) must have BIOS : 030703s
M925G (V8.0) and M925G (V9.1b) must have BIOS : 050510s

Hope this helps you out.

Ram when i upgrade 128 sdram to 256 sdram in intel 845glly it shows spd


It is not seieng the ram, try swapping the ram around or leave out the 128MB, just put in 256MB, if no boot then the ram is not compatible or faulty, not all ram sticks work in all motherboards.

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,


The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:


DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.

Changing a P3 motherboard for a P4 motherboard


P-4 boards want at least a 300w power supply, P3 were not so picky. Next, swapping boards is easy but remember to stay in the same form factor, (the relative size length and width) a server board won't fit in a micro case.

The location of the stand offs (where the screw holes are) may have to be changed. P4 boards have 20 pin or 24 pin power connectors so the appropriate power supply will need to be ordered. If you are running a lot of peripherals a 450w ps at least.

Now you decide if you want a board with on board, video,nic,sound,etc.

then you have to order the supported processor/heatsink and fan/thermal grease/supported Ram etc.

I've been doing this for years so i probably left out a lot.

Lately because of costs I've resorted to backward building.
I decided since DDR2 is cheap, find a board that supports that ram in a processor socket I want to use (socket 478-775) etc.

Intel 815E Mother Board


Do you mean the Power Supply?
These are relatively cheap and easy to replace.
