Yes, your mainboard supports up to 2GB of DDR memory. That does not change if you add a graphic card. Windows XP 32 bit can actually address up to 4 GB of total memory including CD, hard drives, and video cache. Note: Your mainboard only supports up to 2 GB, but newer boards can support much more memory, up to 16GB of RAM. If you could install 4 GB of RAM in your machine, it would still work, but windows would only address as much RAM as it can use; the rest would go unused, so it would probably show up as 3.5 GB of RAM then.
Your motherboard can take any AMD Athlon CPU (this does not include the newer multi core or Athlon 2 CPU's), as well as up to 2 gigabytes of DDR400/333/266, ECC, non-ECC, un-buffered memory. That memory has to be split between 2 dimms as the motherboard will not work with a single dimm of that size. Also, ensure that when you do put memory in that the 2 memory sticks are exactly the same.
Hi, Thanks for the details. I have used K8V-MX Asus motherboard and found it very reliable with quite reasonable performance. It definately supports 500 GB Sata drive and there must not be any issues after increasing just the storage. However, Operating System upgrade may result in sluggish performance. Drivers dont seem to be an issue to me either. I suggest to review a few points detailed as under: - - K8V-MX Asus Supports RAID, so, check for any RAID Drivers/ settings. (You dont have to use RAID for two Hard Drives of different make, capacity and speed). Try using one disk at a time having same Operating System (e.g. Windows XP) and compare the performance. - Infact SATA Drives have better data transfer rate than IDE, which results in enhanced performance. - Some Programs (that you may not be using with 80GB drive) Like antivirus may result in decreased performance. - Please Review you Operating System environment and software installed. Make sure that the new drive & Operating System are free of any virus, which results in CPU Utilization upto 100%. - Also, motherboard supports Max 2GB RAM, so you may consider adding more RAM.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required. Hope it helps! Good Luck! CreativeTECH
No, it's not true, but you will need to buy Partition Magic to clone the smaller drive onto the larger one.
The new MoBo and CPU might give you more trouble though. All of the windows drivers for the old MoBo will be confused when they see all new hardware. In the olden (WinNT) days, this rarely worked. Now in the WinXP SP3/Vista days, you'll probably be just fine.
You're Foxconn board uses the Award bios. The long beeps you are hearing are telling you there is a problem with you're memory. You're pic does not look like the Foxconn P9657AB-8EKRS2H MB as shown in the user manual. Found on This link. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-us0000297 The pic on Foxconn's site does but not the manual listed. The motherboard uses four 240-pin slots with 1.8V for DDR2 memory only. (Question? Did you're ECS MB use DDR2 memory)? If you have more than 1 DIMM installed remove all but 1. Move the DIMM into the closest slot next to the CPU. Boot the PC & check for beeps. If still presant move the DIMM to the next slot & try again. Continue this through all four slots. Than try another DIMM. If the mother board continues to beep as mentioned than call Foxconn. (There is a bios update mentioned below for memory). The CPU may come into question. (It’s revision). You may have to call Foxconn for this information. (580-272-0035). They do not place this information in their user manual. Most users have to call. The rev of the CPU may conflick with the memory causing you to receive the bios beeps. (I have had to return 2 boards for this reason). I picked an Asus board over Foxconn. I have come across this with Foxconn motherboards these past two years. Suggest you update you’re bios. Foxconn has a revision dated, 3-28-2008 for memory before you call. After bios update test the memory again for beeps. Still there? Return the board is my suggestion. It’s a guess that the red led will go away after the memory issue has been addressed. Normally there is a green led on most motherboards. This means standby. The board has power connected. I could not find any reference in the user manual * .pdf, for R450. Good Luck ninjo61! Mike
For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and".
Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb.
Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
