The CD with MoBo most likely will not have linux drivers on it.

try this LINK

there are a number of Linux drivers there

if it does not work go to the ASUS website and do a search for your MoBo as thats how I found this link.

Is my linux computer compatible with windows xp software? are the parts interchangeable? example= installing a linux video card in a windows 7 tower?


Most devices that have Unix drivers will also have drivers available for some versions of Windows. Asus lists XP drivers for this board: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_Socket_754/K8V_SE_Deluxe/#download . The K8V-SE Deluxe motherboard is not listed as Win7 compatible (but it's not listed as known incompatible either). To test if this board is Win7 compatible, update to the most recent BIOS, then use a Win7 install DVD to search for drivers and other support. (I know the Windows Update disc confirmed that my WinXP box would support Win7.)

For moving components into another computer, you will need to identify the exact device that you want to move and the slot/interface for that device. For example, since ASUS K8V-SE Deluxe motherboard has an AGP video card slot, it will not fit in a newer tower with only PCIe or PCI slots. If your Win7 tower does have an AGP slot, you may need to look in will amongst the drivers for "legacy cards". Finding an XP driver will be fairly easy. The Windows 7 driver may not exist and Win7 may not run without an external video card (if it can load at all).

I hope this helps. If you are looking at a different motherboard or wish to check specific components, please add a comment with the make and model of those parts. I'll be glad to try to find additional information. Include in your comment whether the Win7 tower is/will be running Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit. Drivers for the 32-bit Windows are more common since they don't need the signature. (To check if a Windows machine is currently running Win7 64-bit, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title ends with x64, it's the 64-bit OS. Otherwise it's the 32-bit version.)

I cant install linux on my [ IntelDG31PR motherboard ] PC.What I must to do?


Intel DG31PR is a pretty standard Intel motherboard: you can ALWAYS install a version/distribution of Linux on it as Linux has a lesser resources requirement than even Windows XP.

For assistance, refer to:
http://www.linux.org/docs/beginner/distributions.html

Specific free Linux distrution to try:

Hope it helps!

I bought unknown motherboard with a 120 p120 processor on it its not installed yet, doe anyone know the speed of this processor


If it says p120, It will probably be a VERY old Pentium 120mhz CPU.
If this is the case, it is of no use in modern computing.
You would find it very hard to find anything to fit onto the board (memory / hard drive / PSU)
for a bit of fun, you may be able to get it running with a linux installation (DSL - damn small linux), or windows 95 maybe windows 2000.
But this would not run the OS / security software and run a browser for the internet.

Why i cant install messenger to my pc.. Linux ubuntu is my windows


Hello,
First of all, the programs made for windows can't be run on Ubuntu because Linux based operating system don't execute *.exe files.
Messenger programs like Pidgin, skype are already added in the repository of Ubuntu. You can select from the software management menu and install. Besides, you can also download the sources (tar balls) of various other messengers written fir Linux distributions, compile them and install. You need just to search on Google for all available messengers for Ubuntu.
It is advisable that you download a Debian package of the software because it is just like Windows .exe file to install it. Just, a click.
Let me know if you need any other help regarding installation of softwares on Linux.
We are always available for your help.

Regards.

GF7050V-M7 WITH LINUX SO


hi wie_2222,

most if not all of the device drivers for this motherboard are integrated to just about any latest linux distribution,

- the ethernet/lan/network device should work automatically after installation, activate it using the ifconfig eth0 up command :
user@localhost# ifconfig eth0 up

- sound device should work after initializing the sound device from ALSA sound server using these commands :
user@localhost# alsaconf
user@localhost# alsamixer
user@localhost# alsactl store

- integrated video device can use the kernel integrated nvidia driver "nv" or download and install the latest binary video driver for linux from nvidia.com

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.

Problem


The WindowsXP setup program will hang when it tries check hardware at the beginning of setup. It won't recognize the linux file system as a legitimate drive and freeze. You'll need to either format the drive and lose all the linux data, or buy a second drive to install Windows on and make the windows drive the primary drive, and temporarily disconnect the linux drive. After you install Windows you can reconnect the linux drive as secondary. You can check the forums for your version of linux and find help on setting up a dual boot system so you can boot from Windows and linux. You'll just have to make adjustment to the linux bootloader config file.
Linux is a great operating system, but is not for the faint of heart.
Good Luck
