Question about Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard

1 Answer

System will not boot

The CPU failed (AMD Sempron Processor 2800)

 

I have replaced it with a AMD Sempron Processor 3000

 

When I power up I get nothing.

 

The CPU fan comes on

 

No Beep's, No display

 

I have removed all disk cable, checked the atx power cable and have all the correct power levels.

The CPU failure was possibly due to a Power Spike, if that was the case then the Memory or Motherboard may also be damaged,  it may be best to test the CPUs and the memory on a known working system, to see what is working & what is not

I can install windows 8 on MY pc?? cpu:amd sempron


I don't think you can run Windows 8 on your system.
What Microsoft say are the minimum requirements for a system to run Windows 8 can be found here
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-8/system-requirements
First, the processor needs to have certain features - SSE2, NX and PAE which I don't think the Sempron 3000+ has; and you be able to run only the 32-bit version if could run that because you don't have enough RAM, and your processor is a 32-bit processor.
Secondly, the 9250 isn't up to it. It doesn't have WDDM drivers, because it's not a true Direct 9X graphics card; it not being a DirectX 9 card is enough to preclude from running Windows 6 anyway.

Your processor, RAM and graphics card might be upgradeable to be able to support a 32-bit version of W8, but that may be more expensive than buying a (new) W8 computer anyway.

Anyway that's what my brief study of the topic has lead me to believe. It's a no.

On the other hand, see these:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_install/amd-sempron-3000-for-windows-8/9b9c1659-63dc-4069-99fa-eb8e08040738
and
http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-1806278/install-windows-cpu-amd-sempron-3000-ram-512-ddr-ddr-gpu-radeon-9250.html
(found by searching the internet with "running windows 8 on a sempron 3000+")
They say "Yes".

So I think more research needs to be done. Note the second article says the system will have terrible performance.

I jus need the drivers for the AMD Sempron 2800+. my other computer doesn't know what kind of processor it has.


You don't need driver for your processor. You need to upgrade your bios software, because Bios tells you the type of CPU.
