Preferred Solution: Compability with MSI motherboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Compability with MSI motherboard

Nice build. Any FM2 motherboard should be compatible with the CPU. Make sure you buy a motherboard with the A85X chipset since that allows for maximum overclocking. I recommend maybe upping the PSU to about 550W or more just to be safe. The GPU requires a 300W, but with a 100W CPU and a few other components, it could easily overrun the 430W.

i tried the ASUS site but there was nothing about it there so can anyone please help me to find a compatible processor for this motherboard, Thanks

A:Motherboard Compability Question?

Since you already have an AMD Athlon XP CPU installed I'd say that you can install Athlon XP CPUs up to the XP 3200+ model. It is also possible that you could install the early socket A Semprons.

Here's a list of the Athlon XP CPUs:

Hello fellow nerds

I just got a new motherboard and I am uncertain if the network card, this one, if it will fit in the slot, see attached image.

A:New motherboard + network card compability

Your link doesn't work. You don't need to post pictures or anything like that. The network card will have a certain slot type, like PCI, PCI-Express, etc. Your motherboard will have a list of available ports. You can find this in your manual or just by looking at the motherboard closely (your screenshot isn't clear and much is covered). Match them up, and you are good to go.

Aside from all of that, your new motherboard should have a network card built-in.

hey guys i have a geforce 7600Gt and i have a asus a8n-sli mobo and i wanna upgrade to sli, but i want to keep my current card

i read a while ago that you must have 2 cards that are identical, but last week i read in maximum pc that you only need the same chipset and the cards can even be from different manufacturers....

so whats the real deal? do i need to get another card from xfx that has the same part number or can i just grab any old 7600GT?

A:SLI compability

Its "recommended" that you have the same cards, I know someone with different cards or I should say same chipset and different name brands. I dont advise going with different brands though, its not worth saving 10-20 bucks with the chance of your cards, both of them messing up just to save a buck.

I'm trying to run a program called Workshop Information System (WIS) for SAAB. I am running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. After buying this program I discovered that it won't run in windows 7, I think the problem is more with the 64bit than the windows. from researching it I have found that it should work if i use the option to run in xp mode. My problem is that I can not get this to work? When I try to run it this way it says the program is not compatible? I also read that i could run it using a program called Alcohol 52? Does anyone know how to make this program work on my windows??

He will likely have to change to a CPU that is compatible with the motherboard, flash the BIOS, and then put the new 7700K into it.

I currently have an AL-1540CS printer that's hooked up to the USB port of my PC. I went to the official SHARP Website to search for the drivers of it and I downloaded them. The problem is whenever I try to install the drivers it says:

After it shows this message it just closes. I tried using it with compability mode, but it won't work either with any settings. I contacted SHARP, but no answer from them yet.

Check all timing settings in the BIOS - don't try to push the RAM. However, a quick search shows your problem is not unique - others have the same problem. Likely suspects are:

> IRQ conflicts (don't believe the "no more IRQ issues with Windows 7" argument)

> High DPC latency issues (reporting the issue as 'Music flickers/crackles when browsing the Internet','Sound output pops/crackles/hesitates', 'audio stops working after Windows 7 has been running for a while', 'Jerky sound playback Win7', 'Windows 7 Audio Stutter Problem' etc)

> Issue caused by running Microsoft Security Essentials or Forefront (virus scanners apparently can contribute to the problem)

For Security Essentials, try:
1. Open Microsoft Security Essential or Forefront.
2. Click the Settings tab.
3. Click Excluded files and Locations
4. Click Add.
5. Select either of the following paths, depending on the scanner you are using:

C:\Program files\Microsoft security essentials\MsMpEng.exe
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront\Forefront System\Client\AntiMalware\MsMpEng.exe

6. Click Ok.
7. Click Save changes.
8. Close the scanner program, and then restart the computer.

You might also try excluding other network intensive programs like iTunes.exe or iTuneHelper.exe.

Good luck.

Hi (a post after a long time)
I've a F90M motherboard (with intel 915G chipset - i gues chipset doesn't have to do anything with front panel connections, but ... ). It came out of Acer 3700GX PC (i think its a bit old ).
Ok, now i'm trying to put it in a standard larger ATX casing. I've fitted it in and everything works fine except the front panel connections. I cannot identify the front panel connections and could only manage to identify the power switch pins on the motherboard.

I've searched over internet and couldn't find a manual of the motherboard (found manual for the PC on but it doesn't tell how to connect front panel)

so can you guys please suggest me the connections for front panel LEDs, Audio and USB.

and i really believe that you TSG guys are up to it

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

Okay, so as the topic title implies, for the life of me, I cannot figure out which motherboard model I'm supposed to get for this Dell Inspiron 1300 here. Only info I have is that it has the Centrino sticker on the palm rest of the case, and I also have the service tag, but that doesn't seem to give me much information from what I've found.

I've taken the motherboard out of the thing and looked it over, but no luck, as I don't see the model number on it.

Will someone please tell me how I'm supposed to figure out the motherboard model number so I can get a new one?

hey guys, does anyone if there are any other drivers for this board? i'm looking at this page after selecting 'driver' and 'win7 64 bit'. i only see 'audio', 'chipset' 'LAN' and 'RAID'. on the other boards i've seen, the driver software was much more comprehensive and contained several different pieces of software.

what's the main driver i need to install after installing win7 for the motherboard? just wondering if i'm missing something and need to install something else for the 'main features'? or are there main features found in the BIOS before win7 boots up? how does win7 recognise the board btw? does the board have drivers built in already? how can winxp recognise mboards that have been made very recently?

thanks guys

A:Gigabyte motherboard: P55M-UD4 some questions on motherboard software

Those are all the drivers you need, and really all any motherboard needs to work. You also have some Utilities under the drop down menu of "Download Type" but these are optional tweaking and similar utilities not required for proper operation of the system. Any version of Windows will have limited driver support, enough to install and run until the correct drivers are installed, or for a SATA or RAID controller under Windows XP drivers are loaded via the F6 prompt during the initial stages of the XP install to allow it to detect the hard drive. There are no drivers built into the hardware itself.

I'm trying to be a bit cost effective for college by replacing parts of an old computer in order to get it to run CAD (specifically making it possible to run Solidworks 2016) better, but I am new to modifying computers. I currently have a Dell 15r 5520 with no modifications. I have found a 15R 7520 motherboard on eBay to replace it but it says with no video. Does this mean I would have to buy a separate graphics card? If so, any recommendations? Would I be correct in assuming that it comes with the i7 processor? Also any input on upgrading to a SSD?

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily. Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

I'd go with 4 gigs until you had a major reason to believe it wasn't enough. If that ever happens, consider your next move. Most people do just fine with 4 gigs.

I can't find the motherboard again so I'm going to replace it with another ones (make/model not yet decided) But how do I go about installing the drivers for the new one? I've searched Google yet the only thing I could find is being able to boot up the computer to un=install the old ones? Is there anyway to do this without booting it up prior to installing the new MOBO? Many thanks, Mark ^^

hi, i've recently purchased a new motherboard today. it is a socket a motherboard that supports up to 1.4ghz and faster. amd athlon/amd athlon xp/ amd duron.

i thought my cpu was 1.2 ghz, but it's actually 950 mhz duron.

the computer seems to run, but will that be a problem in the long run.

and my graphics card does not work, but when i put it in the motherboard graphics, it works... any ideas?

A:new motherboard

The CPU more than likely needs to be set up in the BIOS. It is more than likly your front side bus and multiplier that need to be set to get the processor to be recognized as a 1.2 GHz. You also need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard video in order to use the add on video card.

well... I'm an Asus fan boy. the board I have is stable, but overclocks only 35%. If you need something higher go with the psB deluxe, its cheaper too, and there are reported 80% overclocks with aftermarket coolers, or you could always go for the intel badaxe board if you want to get crazy with it.

A:New Motherboard

Ignore 2nd IDE connector. Some users may install an additional drive controller or other device.

Some cases do NOT include a speaker cable. If there isn't a speaker, then there is no cable. Some motherboards include bult-in speakers. It is not too big of a deal, but handy for trouble shooting when things do go wrong.

Hi, Possibly someone could....but, some details might help.
It could be a power problem- got a good, high enough output power supply, and is the fan in it working, clean, etc?
Any beeps other than the one that is normal heard?
Got a good battery on the board?
1. Name brand computer or clone?
2. Type of install- fresh format of old hard drive?
3. How are you running setup- directly from an OS CD or by copying files to the hard drive first?
4. You probably have the manual for that new board- have you followed the reccommended setup procedures?
5. Followed the guidelines for installing CPU and fans?
RAM of the type it should have?
RAM seated right? Do it again, just to be sure.
6. What is the hard drive arrangement- Primary Master on Primary IDE connector of the motherboard? CD drive as Master on 2ndary IDE connector or is hard drive slaved to the CD drive (it should not be, for good performamance).
7. There are some BIOSes that are more or less self-detecting and load the CPU settings for you, are these showing what you have for speed of CPU? Amount of RAM too?
You can use the Setup Defaults setting to see what happens, rather than the Optimal or Best Performance settings...which can be tough on things until the right drivers for everything are loaded after you get Windows installed. But, usually this turns on the bootup virus scan that may be included with the motherboard-- should turn that to Disabled.
Disconnect any peripherals you can, no printers or other devices like that, only need items RAM, CPU, Hard drive, CD, floppy if you have that. if you have added a sound or video card, and the motherboard has either of these onboard, you may have a conflict. You should disable onboard sound if you have a sound card, there are settings in BIOS usually to do that.
Any heat problems seen- do you have a temp monitor to check? All the fans turning? Any other messages you see?
8. Any other partitions on that hard drive at all?

A:What motherboard should I get?

Almost all motherboards have a socket for a processor so the processor can be upgraded, and do not come with the processor. The manufacturer will say what socket type it supports and also usually will have a processor compatibility list on their website. 250W isn't a lot, but will power a basic system. If you'll be significantly upgrading the computer a higher power supply would be better. A good place to buy in the US is

When a pw supply fails, it can take out other hardware as well. You need to swap in known working parts ie cpu, ram, video, etc to test each one.

FWIW I had a system brought to me for a no boot condition. When I attempted to pw ON the system, the pw supply exploded and shot sparks and smoke out the back. It took out everything except the mouse and keyboard. Everything else was fried ie board, ram, hd, video, etc, etc.

Hello and welcome to TechSpot. :wave:

Yes, DDR2 675 will run on your computer. The highest RAM the motherboard supports natively is DDR2 800; anything faster than that might void the warranty or something. Any DDR2 RAM slower than that, with maybe the exception of DDR2 400, should run well.

Never say you don't have any budget, cos you can run a PC build over 10k easy.

Hi folks.

I recently replaced my motherboard with an ASROCK CONROE FSB1333 but during a short spell of sickness lost my notes of what wires to connect where concerning the sockets on the front of the cabinet i.e. 2 X USB's plus headphone and speaker sockets etc. Can anyone advise me please?

does any one know for sure if a bad motherboard will ruin a good cpu or a can a bad cpu ruin a good mothermoard.
I want to test a motherboard and cpu with another set that I know to be good but I don't want to ruin the good ones.

The suspect motherboard and cpu give no post sounds when powered up but the cpu fan runs. Is the cpu bad or is the motherboard bad?

Look at the socket your cpu is now in. On one of the four sides, there is a wider band of material, usually cream colored or beige... the socket is embossed in that frame. From there, it gets easier.

Can anyone recommend a good Motherboard, and Memory that goes along with these Socket types.

I would like the motherboard to support up to 8Gb of memory, SLI ready, and costs around 200$ and below. Are my first choices all right or are there better ones for that price?

I would like to buy 1 or 2 Gb of Memory as well but i'm not sure what will get the most bang for my buck.

Socket types

1. Socket AM2

-Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
-Asus M2N32 WS Pro

2. LGA 775

-Asus P5N32-E SLI nVidia 680I
-Asus Striker Extreme Nvidia 680I

I have a dell latitude C640. the other day it fell off my lap onto the floor (2.5 ft)carpet. everything ran fine until I plugged in the ac cord, nothing happened, the batteries won't charge, the ac light won't come on anymore. I even took out the batteries and had it run just on ac it in the motherboard? A friend of mine that works on desktops took out the motherboard and showed me where the ac plug connects to the board---i can't tell, i know nothing about the inside of computers. What is the problem, how much would a new motherboard cost?
Could an electronic store trace it down for me???



Welcome to the board.

I went to Dell's site to check the motherboard specs but they don't have a public view for it so I checked a few other locations with no luck. I was looking for the placement of the in-line power fuse.

It's just possible that it was jarred loose or broken. Can you check that?

A:Bad motherboard or RAM?

Gwen said:

My Specs:
Motherboard: ASUS P4P800 Deluxe
Video Card: ATI All-In-Wonder 9800 Pro
Ram: 1 GB, Kingston

I am having major problems with my computer. Something is causing my hard disks to develop bad sectors. I replaced the power supply to an Antec NeoHE 500 watt and I bought a new surge protector. Now I am getting video display problems to point that I cannot do anything on my computer. The display is bad even on the startup screens and in BIOS. My registry started having problems and I received an error in Event Viewer that something was corrupt and to do LODCTR /r:filename.

I tried a different hard disk, video card, and monitor. I put in all new psu and SATA cables. I plugged the SATA cable into the second SATA port. I updated all drivers and the Intel chipset. I updated the BIOS, and reset CMOS and set BIOS to defaults. I swapped the RAM to different slots and I checked all the connections on my motherboard.

My motherboard is still under warranty and ASUS has advised me to run MemTest-86 to Pass 7, which I am doing right now. The display is a mess (black and blue vertical lines with some red boxes as well; the letter V is in the blue lines), but it looks like after Pass 6, it has no errors.

So what do you guys think is wrong with my computer?

Thanks in advance!Click to expand...

A surge protector will not help in this case

Hello. I have a DFI LANParty UT RDX200 CF-DR motherboard. When I try to boot it up, the computer "starts", as in that the fans turn on, four red LEDs light up and that's all that happens. I read the manula and it says that 4 diagnostic Red LEDs means that it's at system start-up, but it has not detected anything else. It gets stuck in POST. I've done numerous things.

1. Reset CMOS jumper
2. Taken out CMOS battery.
3. Tested each piece of hardware (which all work)
4. Replaced the BIOS
5. Sent it in to DFI
6. Replaced power supply

I cannot think of anything else to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Motherboard help!

There is a good sticky at the top of the hardware forum for "problem builds"
Also check the motherboard is not shorting to the case.
Are you sure the heatsink is fitted correctly with the correct amount of thermal paste?

A:Help Please!! Motherboard DOA?

May I give you a compliment and say you've done what you should do and I'm impressed. Most ppl don't know all the tricks like pin 14 and 15 on the 20pin connector or jumping the mobo power switch to eliminate the switch factor.

All I can think is that the *****s shipped you back your original board somehow.
Was the original mobo/problem the same issue?

I really don't know what else to suggest, like I said you've covered all the bases that I know of. Maybe some others here got something we can't think.
