Question about AMD Duron , 700 MHz Processor

1 Answer

I've tried to install ubuntu+xubuntu on i686 duron 900? 256ram-

I've tried ubuntu x86-64bit, also xubuntu alternative amd64CPU.The ubuntu, which I'd ordered through the mail showed that it required x86-64CPU... that it only detected i686CPU...can't boot...install appropriate kernel! I don't know which might be appropriate, none show : specifically intended or suitable for - i686! Someone must know which is best for such a system?! I've looked around and asked questions.. after the ubuntu cd xubuntu was recommended, did not specify which, though. pls help thanks

    Thanks for response. It's a Duron 900. I hadn't even visited the ubuntu forums. There, there are many similar problems.What I didn't get was that x86 is i686! why would anyone guess that, who's not au fait with computer talk and all?! Thanks again for response,I see it's unfair not to put full details, thanx.

    Another thing: why not include "32bit" seems so easy, too easy?!

Not exactly sure what you are saying... but you DO have a Duron 700? That is 32-bit. No x64 for you!

If that is not what you're saying. You are saying that you received an Xubuntu alternate distro from Ubuntu? Ubuntu comes in prepackaged distributions for i686 (i386, i486)-32bit and x64-64bit.

You can download the Xubuntu for free at
http://www.xubuntu.org/get

Select the Hardy Heron i686 version. When you install, the installer "should" select the best kernel for your system.

How do i get to recovery mode for ubuntu?


  1. Switch on your computer.
  2. Wait until the BIOS has finished loading, or has almost finished. (During this time you will probably see a logo of your computer manufacturer.)
  3. Quickly press and hold the Shift key, which will bring up the GNU GRUB menu. (If you see the Ubuntu logo, you've missed the point where you can enter the GRUB menu.)
  4. Select the line which starts with "Advanced options".
  5. Select the line ending with "(recovery mode)", probably the second line, something like: Ubuntu GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.8.0-26-generic (recovery mode)
  6. Press Return and your machine will begin the boot process.
  7. After a few moments, your workstation should display a menu with a number of options. One of the options (you may need to scroll down to the bottom of the list) will be "Drop to root shell prompt". Press Return with this option highlighted.
  8. The root partition is mounted read-only. To mount it read/write, enter the command
    mount -o remount,rw /
  9. If you have /home, /boot, /tmp, or any other mount point on a separate partition, you can mount them with the command
    mount --all (This must be done following step 8 so that /etc/mtab is writable.) Alternatively, you could try selecting "Enable networking" in step 7, though this has been found to cause the system to hang (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/friendly-recovery/+bug/981792).
NOTE 1: If you have Ubuntu Quantal (12.10) or earlier, omit step 4 (the recovery mode menu items are displayed on the top-level menu).
NOTE 2: If you reboot, there is no need to hold the Shift key in step 3. The GNU GRUB menu will continue to be displayed automatically on each boot until a normal startup of Ubuntu completes. To configure GRUB so the menu is always displayed, even after a normal startup, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2/Setup.

My Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H gets in a boot cycle when i try to install os


Hello try to start in failsafe mode by pressing F8 and remove the file in add/remove programs and make a restart.
My guess is that the file is broken or invalid.


Make sure that you have:

Service pack 1
All your drivers is updated.
And there is enoug room for ubuntu on the harddrive.
And make sure ubuntu fits your system.
And download the file at ubuntu here is less chance for getting virus.

http://www.ubuntu.com/

Try also to look for updates here at gigabytes:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3928#dl

There is some settings that must be right when you set up ubuntu.

Try also to look at youtube there is a lot of videos with setting up ubuntu.

Good luck

Want to upgrade CPU and Ram on ASUS A7V-ML motherboard


Download a small utility called CPUID from http://www.cpuid.com or use this direct download link "http://www.cpuid.com/download/hwmonitorpro/HWMonitorPro_106.zip". Using this utility you can analyze your system hardware statistics and also you can find the RAM capacity supported in your system along with various other RAM parameters. It will also show you the available free RAM slots to use, as well. I hope this is useful to you.

How to upgrade


Here is the list of compatible processors for your motherboard:

AMD Athlon 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950, 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G, 1.33G, 1.4G (Thunderbird)
AMD Athlon MP 1.0G, 1.2G, 1500+, 1600+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon MP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon MP 2800+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+ (Palomino)
AMD Athlon XP 1600+, 1700+, 1800+, 1900+, 2000+, 2100+, 2200+, 2400+, 2600+, 2700+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Athlon XP 2500+, 2600+, 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ (Barton)
AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 2200+, 2400+ (Thorton)
AMD Sempron 2200+, 2300+, 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
AMD Sempron 2200+, 2400+, 2500+, 2600+, 2800+ (Thorton)
AMD Sempron 3000+ (Barton)
AMD Duron 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950 (Spitfire)
AMD Duron 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G (Morgan)
AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
