Question about MSI K7T Turbo2 Motherboard

1 Answer

Never saw this B4.......

I have a k7t turbo2 w/ an AMD Duron 1gb, 512 ram, a 40gb & 1.5gb drive. Problem has been it was powercycling itself and then this AM went dormant--on reboot it gets to verify DMI pool data and locks with Y*Y* at the cursor line. I can get it to try and boot from CD but it is saying that memory allocation errors exist. Any ideas? I'm thinking hard drive (hoping....)

It sounds like the ram is acting up. easiest solution is to remove the ram make sure no dust and crap has built up on the ram and the ram sockets.

What motherboard will replace a msi k7t turbo2?

This is an obsolete part; as such, you will have a hard time finding it at any retailer, whether brick and mortar or online. However, all hope is not lost-try E-bay

http://computers.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=socket+a&_sacat=1244&_trksid=m270&_dmpt=Motherboards&_odkw=&_osacat=1244

You will have to look for a board that supports S-Dram memory, because that is what your MSI K7T Turbo2 uses.

My advice would be to skip this entirely; I would replace the whole board/CPU setup, and pick up some memory. You can get an Athlon II quad core and mobo for $165.98 USD (Asus /AMD). Pick up 2 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM for $56

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820134790

and you essentially have a whole new system for $222

Just my opinion on this-I don't think that spending the amount of cash you would have to in order to replace an obsolete board is worth it.

You might try this, instead:
AMD Athlon II x2 Regor (2.8 Ghz, dual core) @ 56.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103688

ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD mobo @ 59.99

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148305

Total $174.97 + shipping USD

Given you 3 ways to go and my advice-good luck!!

K7VT2 with a AMD Duron 1.30 GHz CPU.

Depends on which AMD processor you would use. If Duron you could go to 1.8Ghz. If you use Athlon XP you could go to 3200+. Athlon MP 2.1Ghz and regular Athlon 1.4Ghz.
