No not compatible! Your system is obsolete, almost impossible to upgrade anything. Socket 478, P4 cpu stuff, is the oldest system with any chance of upgrading or maintenance.Get a 'barebones' new system for $250/300 from the Inet [ ebay or simillar ]/ You will then get some value from the cost of the windows Xp if it is the full version or alternatively you have both original OS disc and windows Xp ugrade disc. If what you buy has an IDE hard drive. you can also install your current hard drive too, keeping what you have on it, as a slave drive after you have put your OS on your new machine plus any cd or dvd on your old machine.All this is simple and within widows framework and tools, no tech skill needed, just a screwdriver and a manual with your new barebones motherboard. Plug the old ide drive into the right socket from the conncecting braid, set the jumpers as per hard drive diagram on the back plate on both drives. One master, one slave.Remember NOT to format your old drive/ LOL/

Want to know about memory upgrade for this motherbord


Here is what that motherboard will take:

Architecture - 64-bit (non-error checking and correction [ECC]) or
72-bit (ECC), noninterleaved, "PC100" 100
megahertz (MHz)
DIMM sockets - Three (gold contacts)
DIMM capacities - 32-, 64-, 128-, and 256-megabyte (MB)
synchronous dynamic random-access
memory (SDRAM)
Minimum RAM - 32MB
Maximum RAM - 768 MB

So Basically 3 sticks of 256MB PC100 SDRam

I've a Biostar M7VKD m/board and I want to increase its memory to 1GB. I has 128MB at the moment. I've looked up some details and the advice is to fit 128 or 256 not 512MB.


The maximum amount of memory you can use is 768MB (3 x 256MB). It's not possible to go any higher. The reason to that is because it's using SDRAM DIMM, and SDRAM generally goes up to 256MB. So, even if you wanted to, you probably can't find any 512MB of SDRAM.

I have an old dell dimension v450 that has 3 ram slots each with 128mb ram modules. Iwant to upgrade the ram with 512mb pc100 sdram but when I do the computer wont even boot up


your motherboard is not compatible with more than 128MB of RAM pre slot so max u can place 384mb of ram if u place more than that your motherboard will not recognise of it wont start

Sd ram 256MB -does not read more than 128 MB per slot


I checked the specs of this motherboard at the following link:
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=340

The specs says the following:
• Supports four 168-pin unbuffered DIMM using eight memory banks.
• Supports a maximum memory size of 348MB (8Mx8) or 768MB (16Mx4) registered DIMM
only
• Support ECC (1-bit Error Code Correct) function
• Supports 3.3v PC100 SDRAM DIMM.

According to this, the only memory DIMMs guaranteed to work on your motherboard are the 3.3v PC100 SDRAM DIMMs.

However, it seems that your problem lies within the density of the memory module. It looks like the motherboard was made when 256MB sticks weren't very common yet, so there could just be some compatibility issues.
I believe that the motherboard only supports 128MB per side. The RAM you bought probably has memory chips only on one side. Check your new stick. If it only has memory chips on the one side (small black squares) then the only thing you can do is take it back and look for a double-sided stick of 256MB. Even then, it may or may not work with your motherboard.

Can work Memory SDRam 128MB PC100 with SDRam 512 MB PC133


It wont work, it will hang ur system. Ur motherboard supports but using Mutli-frequencies RAM is not possible, either u use SDRAM 512 BM PC133 or ur 64/128 PC100 RAM, You cant use all together.

Simply upgrade to more memory


G-Skill is what I put in all my custom built computers.  Search newegg.com and you will find what youare looking for.  You want PC2700 DDR.

Can't install WINxp


try installing from another copy. It sounds like the file is corrupt. Get a CD from someone, but use your own product key (this is not illegal, as you are using the product key you bought) Try installing it. It ought to work now!

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.
