Question about ASUS VIA KX133 Chipset K7V-T Motherboard

1 Answer

Upgrading processor I have an ASUS K7V ACPI BIOS motherboard in my computer. It carries an AMD Athlon 750 megahertz processor. A number of software programs, lately, are required to have Pentium 4 or equal. I think I already know that I can't upgrade my processor to this requirement. I'm guessing that I'll need a new motherboard and I'm looking for recommendations. Thanks.

    I guess I should been more specific in my question. Can I put a Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 on my K7V motherboard? I mostly use the computer for the Internet but even to watch some of the videos, they are requiring at least a Pentium 4. Thanks.

Really it depends on your budget and your wants , if your a serious gamer i recomend pentium its good with the graphix rendering but if your a office and media person AMD is for you very quick with converting too! thanx please return the favour with a posetive rating

Trying to upgrade a Compaq SR1020NX computer. The HP website still has old info, likely based on the original bios. The motherboard is an Asus A8M2N-LA. What CPU upgrades will run on that board? Is there...

The ASUS A8M2N-LA is the motherboard used by HP for the new D4500e AMD AM2 PC.

Here are the details:
Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS A8M2N-LA
HP/Compaq name: Nodus-GL8E
CPU/Processor  Socket: AM2 Supports AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, and Sempron processors
Front-side bus (FSB)  2000 MegaTransfers/second
Chipset  GeForce 6150 LE chipset
BIOS features  Award brand system BIOS Keyboard combination to used to enter BIOS: F1
Form factor  Micro-ATX: 9.6 in X 9.6 in
Memory  Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets, Supports PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs, non-ECC memory only, unbuffered Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*
PS - as you can see the rangeis 533 - 667 MHz. I would suggest you call HP support and ask if it will support 800 MHz,

A7V266E/AA MB CPU

The Ol' Asus A7V266-E?
1.The fastest Front Side Bus setting is 266MHz
2.Uses Socket 462 AMD processors
3.Uses Athlon, Athlon XP, and Duron AMD processors.

I would stick with an AMD Athlon XP. Fastest one? Hmmm, I believe that would be the AMD Athlon XP 2600+
The one that operates at 2133MHz with a FSB of 266MHz. Part number AXDA2600DKV3C
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors#Athlon_XP_.22Thoroughbred_A.2FB.22_.28Model_8.2C_130_nm.29



Here is the Motherboard Manual for your Asus A7V266-E, (It's a PDF file download. Let it download all the way before looking through it)
http://www.motherboards.org/files/manuals/1/a7v266e-100.pdf

If the above direct link does not work for you, then go here,
http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/manuals/ASUS/A7V266-E/ (Click on -> Download <- all the way to the right of -> File:a7v266e-100.pdfVersion:--Release Date:--)

Go to Page 19, Item 2. NO POWER connected to computer, make sure the SYSCLK (System Clock) DIP switches are set to 133MHz.
1, 2, 3, and 4 are set to the OFF position for 133MHz.
All you will see is the ON. The switches go to the opposite side as shown in Item 2.

I'm sure they are set there however, as your 1900+ you have in right now, uses a 266MHz FSB.
I should explain.
AMD processors are Double-Pumped. Therefore the 133MHz setting will become 266MHz for the processor. (Intel processors are Quad-Pumped.

They are both the same Core, (Thoroughbred A/B, Model 8, 130nm), so a BIOS update shouldn't be necessary.

Driver

Thats a prosessor, theres just one driver for that, and still its not a must have.

now if its a motherboard that you need drivers for, now just the processor, go over here and select the right motherboard, you will get the drivers you need.

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx

and you can get a prosessor driver from here for AMD
http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/drivers.aspx

Let me know how that goes.

How to get AMD athlon 3700 socket 754 engineering sample cpu run at proper speed

Some systems have "bottlenecks," where small overclocking of a component can help realize the full potential of another component to a greater percentage than the limiting hardware is overclocked. For instance, many motherboards with AMD Athlon 64 processors limit the speed of four units of RAM to 333 MHz. However, the memory speed is computed by dividing the processor speed (which is a base number times a CPU multiplier, for instance 1.8 GHz is most likely 9x200 MHz) by a fixed integer such that, at stock speeds, the RAM would run at a clock rate near 333 MHz. Manipulating elements of how the processor speed is set (usually lowering the multiplier), one can often overclock the processor a small amount, around 100-200 MHz (less than 10%), and gain a RAM clock rate of 400 MHz (20% increase), releasing the full potential of the RAM.

AMD also produced x86 designs which competed with Intel on performance rather than price. In January 2002 the Pentium 4 gained a lead in sales and AMD marketing responded by giving their processors numeric suffixes approximating the clock rate that an AMD Thunderbird (and by inference a Pentium processor) would need to give matching performance, openly undermining the "megahertz myth".

Check your power supply. A beep every 5 seconds or so generally indicates a problem with power supply voltages.

AMD Sempron 3000+ (Barton)
AMD Duron 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950 (Spitfire)
AMD Duron 1.0G, 1.1G, 1.2G, 1.3G (Morgan)
AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
