Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
I too have an HP Pavilion a635w. i think i did something to ther mother board. i pulled the ram and installed more, when i turned on the pc it just beeps. i turned it off pulled out the new ram & put back the old. Same thing. I pulled all the ram and turned it on, same thing. so i am thinking that i damaged the motherboard. can you tell me what motherboard to purchase so i can get this puppy up and running. i think i found it for like $50, if so then i am happy. here is the link..... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0013DO2PC?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&tag=dealtime-ce-feed-20&linkCode=asn
thank you email@example.com
Hi HotOlds, you did not hurt the motherboard. You did not install the memory correctly. Take the old memory & look at the contacts on the DIMM. There is a notch there & a notch in the memory slot. These two notches must be matched up when inserted. Each memory slot has a locking tab at each end of the slot. When you insert the memory correctly the locking tabs snap closed ensuring the memory will not come out. The beeps you are hearing are telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Same for the memory you bought. However, the memory you did buy must match the memory for the Pavilion A635W. This link will show memory you can use for the Pavilion A635W motherboard.
(Buying a new board).
The link you have posted for the ECS Gf6100-M754 MB. Will not take the memory you currently have. You will have to buy DDR3 memory but that is not the main issue. If you intend to put this motherboard into the Pavilion case it may not fit. Measure the board in the HP & check the dimensions of the ECS board you want to buy. You will have to buy a new CPU as well. The HP uses an AMD CPU & the ECS uses an Intel CPU. Basically you will be buying a whole new system including the CPU & memory, which may not fit in the HP case. You will also need a higher power supply to run the ECS board. HP's power supplies are much smaller.
I will not be online here at fixya for the next week or so.
