Or, pull the harddrive like someone did for the computer I found in the trash. I took it home. put in my own harddrive, fired it up. and it works fine. They even left the RAM strips. All of your personal info is in the harddrive. remove or clear with a powerful magnet and you're home free.

Can you upgrade the cpu on a Via KT ^00


No Kevin.

AMD's use a different Processor socket, than an Intel does.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_CPU_sockets#List_of_sockets_and_slots

At least when we are talking the era of your motherboard.
(Real old? Like over 20 years ago, or more? AMD's and Intel's used a lot of the same processor sockets)

The designation VIA KT600.

VIA is a Chipset manufacturer.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

VIA KT600 refers to the motherboard chipset.
The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

The VIA KT600 motherboard chipset, was manufactured for the AMD Socket 462, (Socket A -> Same/same), and AMD processors.

Intel Pentium 4's used the Socket 478 processor socket, back in the day; then moved to the LGA 775 processor socket. (Socket T)

This is a Motherboard Diagram, that fits the technology of your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit.
Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor, for short.
DOES NOT mean Personal Computer.

(If you run into somebody that uses CPU to mean a personal computer -> Slap 'em.



NO, WAIT! Don't! lol!

I can see the headlines now;
"Person slapped for using CPU to mean Personal Computer Perpetrator alleges Joecoolvette of Fixya said to do so." lol!)

This is an example of a Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip; on a motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ASRock_K7VT4A_Pro_Mainboard_Labeled_English.svg

The Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink on it, to help disperse the heat the Northbridge chip makes.
Looks a lot like the Southbridge chip, with the Heatsink removed from it.
Some motherboards do have a Heatsink, on the Southbridge too.

Your line of question makes me want to post some links, to more computer information for you.

Reformating system u`ll loose infos.why?


Hi:
This means that when you reformat your system, any documents, pictures, or favorite places will be wiped off the computer, and will not be on the computer after the reformat is completed. To save your personal info, you need to copy it before you reformat.
If you don't have anything on the computer that you want to save, it isn't a problem!

Usb port is not working.


It was probably damaged if it is a new motherboard go to the person who sold you it and ask for a replacement and if you cant then you will need to either buy a new board or just live with the usb port which doesn't work.

I just got a used Mother board Gigabyte GA-8KNXP. I assembled the computer and switched on the power. It went a sort of "Poof". And then when I switched on the power on, it makes long machine gun like...


The sad answer here is never buy a used motherboard. There is a reason that someone is getting rid of it. It may be possible to get it working but you need fairly high priced test equipment to isolate the problem. It's usually cheaper to buy a new motherboard -- which is probably what the person who sold it to you did.

No Response from keyboard or mouse


We must have an epidemic. The person before you had just about the same problem, but his was worse. I know a Dell Optiplex. I had one and I installed Linux. Then I found it had a loose connection between the video socket and the MB. I will need some information of what happened, so we can duplicate your problem in our laboratory and be able to give you concrete info. Thank you for considering our service...

I need an I/O back panel shield for an XFX NFORCE 680i LT SLI MB


You may get more joy if you sent them an email to contact@xfxforce.co.uk Give them the serial number of the board and hopefully they will respond. Failing that technically you have to send it back to tiger as they sold it to you. Usually the io shield fits to the motherboard layout. Although there is not much difference between shields they are not normally sold separately. Have you tried "googling"it
