Preferred Solution: Is this motherboard compatible?

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: Is this motherboard compatible?

No they are not compatible. The motherboard has an FM2 socket while the FX 4130 uses an AM3+ socket.

Google the motherboard model, click on the Gigabyte website link, click on the support and download tab and look up the CPU support list.

Hey there, I've just upgraded to windows 7, and with it, I got a new CPU for my motherboard.

Is the CPU i'm using. My problem, though, is that when i tried to install it while i still had windows XP, is that i had screen tearing followed by BSOD's and crashes. I went to a few tech support guys, and they told me it might be a problem with my BIOS or CPU not being compatible with my motherboard.

I'll also include the Dxdiag file with all these... if any of you guys have any suggestions, please let me know <3

A:Motherboard compatible with AM2 - AMD Motherboards

You can just make a selection and narrow it down.
AFter you are done picking let us know and we can help you investigate if it will work with your CPU. AM2 and AM2+ tend to have the same pins but we need to look at the manufactures support list before knowing if it will work.

Can you please update your specs so we can help you chose better?

So i want to upgrade all the most important components in my computer, and i'd like to be able to play battlefield 3 (i would be pleased with medium graphics, i don't have high standards ) So i think i have everything i need, but i still need a compatible motherboard. These would be the specs:
AMD A6-7400K

Crucial 4GB DIMM DDR3 1600MHz


R7 240

Now is this a well-rounded build? and by that i mean is everything on-par with each other? because i'm still questioning about the graphics card and apu. But please don't recommend a lot more expensive parts, because i can't go a lot over my budget don't plan on building a pc that plays every new game, i just want to play some bf3, lol, and some other games.

Hello, a while back I messed up my motherboard and am not looking to replace it. However I seem to be very illiterate when it comes to these things, so I was hoping to get some advice on what motherboard I should go for. I'll start off with the specs of the original computer: # CPU - AM2 Athlon 64bit 6000+ Dual Core # Memory - 2GB DDR2 RAM # Motherboard - ASUS M2A-VM # Graphics - 1GB ATI Radeon X1250 # Hard Drive - 320GB SATA The motherboard had integrated Graphics, so now I'm left with the CPU, Memory and HDD. I'd prefer to stick with an ASUS motherboard, but would change if it seemed beneficial. The computer would be used for the general downloading, playing movies, online gaming and running programmes such as Adobe Photoshop. I am looking for something roughly around 100 (GBP) that will ship to the UK.

My HP a1203 desktop gave me the beep code indicating a bad motherboard. But I don't know where to find a new one thats compatible with my CPU, RAM, and my Radeon 9550 secondary graphics card.

This is the motherboard I had been using

A:a new motherboard compatible w/ this?

Well you could try HP to see if you can order a new motherboard for your Computer. Socket 754 Motherboards are going to be pretty hard to find as this is really old technology. The place I would normally recommend for older motherrboards doesn't even list anything for that Processor. Price Watch lists a few but for the most part they are of very low quality. And you would not know if they will physically fit your case. Also you would not be able to use the OS that was preinstalled on the HP, if you are still using it. So you would have to buy a new copy of your OS.

Nope, its not compatible. There's a lot more to it then just the socket, the architecture of the these two processors is completely different and they aren't compatible with older boards.

Title basically says it all, I was running a gtx 550ti & gtx 660 but I am going to be removing the 550ti and I would like to SLI my gtx 660 if I get another one. Is it possible to SLI? If so how? I mainly only have the budget for another 660 but if I had a little more money would it be worth it to upgrade the the 700 series?
My PC Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3750k 3.5ghz
GPU: Nvidia GTX 660
Nvidia GTX 550ti
PSU: Corsair CX750 Plus Bronze Power Supply
RAM: 8gb g-skill ripjaw
Motherboard: Asus P8 Z77-VLX

A:Can you SLI on a motherboard that is not compatible with SLI?

From ASUS...

The ASUS P8Z77-V LX motherboard features the Intel Z77 chipset supporting the Intel LGA1155 3rd/2nd Generation Intel Core i7 Processors. ASUS DIGI+VRM technology offers full digital voltage regulation for real-time power control, unequaled stability and the most precise power delivery available in a mainstream platform. EPU conserves energy by intelligently moderating power and load requirements in real-time. Intel 3rd generation Core processors supports PCIe 3.0 for AMD Quad-GPU CrossFireX Technology support.

If it well run Crossfire I think it should run SLI but ASUS does not actually list SLI.

I'm running into some issues with my new GC(MSI GTX 760). As far as I can tell my motherboard should be compatible with my new GC however it doesn't seem to be working. I've already upgraded my power supply to fit the GCs requirements.

A:Motherboard not compatible with GC?

Upgraded to 625WClick to expand...

This really tells us nothing. Post the exact pw supply you installed ie corsair xxx123 or whatever.

Next you are correct that your mb should support a real video card however you do need to understand that big box mb are not designed to supply the extra current through the pci-e slot that a high performance card requires. I am not saying this is the cause however it is a possibility.

I assume you mean you are getting only a black screen when you pw ON. Is that correct?

Have you tried the card in another system to verify the card in fact works? If not, do so. In addition, those cards are pretty large. It is not uncommon to have the card hangup on part of the case, etc and not fully seat into the slot.

I am off to work so someone else should be along to give you some advise. Good luck

Hey TS I have a GA-N650SLI-DS4L Motherboard and am wondering if it is compatable with windows 7? I am looking to upgrade but would rather not buy a new motherboard as well.

A:Motherboard, Windows 7 Compatible?

Well considering your mobo can handle up to 8 gigs of DDR2 memory and a quad core cpu I would say, yes, your motherboard will easily handle Windows 7.

The issue is what cpu you have now. I wouldn't consider anything less than a dual core that is able to do 64-bit applications. Which brings us to the question are you going with the 32-bit or 64-bit OS? In this day and age 64-bit is the smart play. If so, make sure you have 4 gigs of RAM.

Hello all, how are you?

Anyway, i have this rather old but reliable Motherboard.

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM2 - GA-MA69VM-S2 (rev. 1.0)

I know that it wont pick up a full 3tb HDD. but would it recognise it all in partitions?

eg: 3 Partitions of 1TB each. or 2 partitions of 1.5 tb.

Thank you for your help.

A:IS this Motherboard compatible with 3tb drives.

My guess (and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong) is that, although the OS is capable of recognising large capacity drives, it will only recognise up to the maximum size that the BIOS can deal with.

There are three main ways round this issue. Firstly, don't use drives that are larger than can be recognised by the BIOS. Secondly, use an interface card that is capable of recognising the full disk capacity. Thirdly (and the most risky) is to see if there is a BIOS update from the motherboard manufacturer that addresses this issue.

A:Motherboard / case compatible?

Dell stuff is proprietary ie made to dell's specs and NOT industry standard specs. While you can sometimes get a standard type mb to fit a dell case, you usually have to do at least some engineering to make it work.

In short if you are going to use a standard mb [which you may have already fried by attempting to use a dell case] get a regular atx type case.

At this point, I would pull the board out of the case and attempt an out of the case build to see if you damaged the board.

Actually I think you're better off leaving it stock standard, other wise the front label (on the box) won't be right.
And anyone who downloads drivers for it one day, won't work.

For gaming, it is better to update the entire computer box, to PCI-Express capabilities, and then ofcourse there's ram, and all the rest.

But you can recover some funds by selling this computer stock standard.

I want to upgrade my CPU. It is currently an AMD Athlon Neo Processor MV-40. It is only 1.6 Ghz. My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv2 Entertainment PC. My motherboard specs are below.

Model: Flextronics 3055
FSB: AMD Hammer, 200 Mhz

The question I have is: What other CPUs are compatible with my motherboard.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there. Thank you all in advance for any help.

A:Motherboard compatible with CPU. Upgrade.

Faites, welcome to the forums.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there.

Probably because it is an OEM board made by them for that (and maybe more) particular notebook. They wouldn't provide any support for it even if you did find it on their site as that would all fall on the notebook manufacturer.

As far as upgrading the CPU, unless it is supported in the bios the best you can do is the Turion Neo x2 listed here,

AMD Processors for Notebooks: AMD Turion

other than that, nothing. Even if it is supported (and that is entirely up to HP), ther eis the small matter of finding one.

I currently have this RAM in my PC with the AsRock Z68 Pro-3 M and I would like to upgrade my motherboard to the Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3. I was wondering if my RAM (linked below) would be compatible with this motherboard.
Mr memory:
Thanks in advance, James.

A:Is this memory compatible with my motherboard?

If you go to the manufacturers site and look up the motherboard there should be a list available to view or download for compatible RAM, you can check it there.

Unfortunately the compatability lists only include RAM they have tested so even if it is not in the list it may still be ok. Thing to do is try it.

Is the XFX Radeon 7970 video card compatible with a an Asus P9Z68-V LE motherboard? I'm rather confused with Crossfire and SLI, is it Crossfire allows multiple Radeon video cards and SLI allows multiple NVidia video cards?

A:Is this video card compatible with this motherboard?

Yes, the card is compatible with the mobo.

Your Crossfire and SLI understanding is correct. However, it extends to GPU's, not just 'cards'. Cards like HD7990 and GTX690 use Crossfire/SLI internally as they have two GPU's on one card.

A:Compatible Upgrade Hardware For My Motherboard?

If your planning on upgrading the cpu and ram you might as well make the move to Socket AM3 or Intel Socket 1155 by upgrading the motherboard also, as DDR3 ram is considerably cheaper than DDR2 ram which is what your computer is running you will see better results from upgrading to more recent computer hardware and it will cost the near the same if not less than upgrading the few pieces of an older system but i cant really tell you much more if your not knowledgeable enough to build the computer yourself.

Also the Power supply should be good enough to run all you need unless you have 4 hard drives etc

So, my intel d875 got fried

I have found a few AGP slotted mobos and this one is what I may be going with

My question is will my new card provide the same features as the old and therefore be compatible? I checked to the best of my ability but need to be sure before I pull the trigger.

Thanks for the help

A:Motherboard fried, is this board compatible?


Well, no. The product addresses I followed show the Intel board is socket 478, while the Asrock is an LGA775. So. best guess is it will take your video card, but you'd have to spring for a processor.
You could also consider Matx size boards as they usually fit into Atx cases.
I don't know if it's worth it to directly replace your 875 board, but I do understand limited finances. The ASRock board does accept 184 pin DDR and AGP graphics, the only addition would be a new CPU. With another board you might have to buy 4 things, (CPU, board, RAM, and Video Card).

Hi there !

I'm planning on buying either a ASUS M3A76-CM or a Foxconn A7GM-S motherboard for use with my Socket AM3 AMD Phenom X3 720 Black Edition Processor.

However, before I can use the motherboard with my processor, I need to flash/update the BIOS to its latest version so that it supports Socket AM3 processors.

My question is: Can I flash the BIOS with my Socket AM3 processor or do I need a Socket AM2+ processor for this ?

Thank you !

A:Flash BIOS of AM2+ (AM3 compatible) motherboard with AM3 CPU ?

It depends on the motherboard. Some don't POST at all, some recognize the CPU as an "unidentified CPU", and can have the BIOS flashed in that state. As a quick Google glance, it would seem that neither of the mentioned boards are able to pull that. Either of these could be a good idea: or

Yes everything would work well however from what I know your motherboard is smaller it will go in to the chassis though none of the expansion slots will align with the chassis slots as your motherboard as smaller than the chassis. I suggest you pick up a 755 MT motherboard for full compatibility and by the way these are like $50 or maybe less and you could just put all your current hardware on it (cpu, ram ,hard drive cable, etc) with no capability issues.

A:Radeon 9000 AGP and Intel motherboard not compatible?

The BIOS beeps are probably more along the lines of an address conflict... and likely the real problem.

Do you have any PCI devices in the PC? Many of those Intel motherboards have shared resources between the AGP slot and the first AGP slot. I''d suggest removing all PCI devices for a test, as well as disabling any PCI address space devices in the BIOS(such as USB, on-board audio, serial, etc.etc.) then save/exit and try the swap once more.

If your system suddenly posts with all hardware disabled and PCI slots empty, it'll then be a simple process of re-enabling to find the culprit... which should lead to a work-around to reallocated it somewhere else (or different PCI slot if its a card).

I'm looking to replace the logic board in my desktop system with a PCI Express-capable model. The current logic board is an Asus P4C800-E with a 3.4 ghz P4 CPU.

What I would like is:
1 16x PCI Express slot (two would be better)
at least 4 other PCI slots
USB 2.0
Onboard gigabit Ethernet
Has to play well with the current processor

My upper limit is around $250 for the board. Suggestions?

A:PCI Express Intel-Compatible Motherboard Suggestions?

A socket 478 p4 board with pci-e is not too common.
I also doubt you'll find one with 4 pci slots as well(although they have some pci-e x1 slots too).
Here're two I could find w/ pci-e and socket 478.
After looking at both, I'd definitely go with the albatron model of the two, it has 1 more pci slot, and also has full pci express x16(not the asrocks "agi express", which is limited).
The downside to the albatron is that it only has 1 ide port, so you could only have 1 ide hd if you have one cd/dvd drive, or no ide drives if you have 2 cd/dvd drives. It basically means you need to use sata hard drives with the board, (or you'd have to get a pci/pci-e x1 ide controller to add 2 more ide connectors).
^that has 2 ide connectors if you'd need more ide connectors. It also adds usb and firewire.

If you need firewire you can add a card like this(or if you need ide ports and get the above, firewire is already built in).
Or if you don't want to tie up a pci slot, you could get a pci-e x1 model like this.

And if you need gigabit ethernet, same situation, you can get pci or pci-e x1.
Here're 2 x1 cards.

So if you got the albatron board, the pci-e x1 firewire card, pci-e x1 gigabit ethernet card, you'd mostly have your requirements(you'd have 3 pci instead of 4).
Also, if you fill both pci-e x1 slots, you'd need to make sure your graphics card only take up one slot(or you'd lose the one x1 slot if you got a dual slot card), as many newer cards use two slots.

So the price including the adapters(firewire, gigabit), would be about $230.

Iam having M572 mother board with AMIBIOS release 12/16/1997 s.
On the chip it is mentioned as H.T M21186 C9748
I could not figureout the manufacturer.

Which is the BIOS chip compatible with M572 motherboard?

If any other information is needed kindly get back to me.

A:Which is the BIOS chip compatible with M572 motherboard?

Not Sure what it is your looking for, your motherboard is a PC Chips M572, The BIOS chip is what you have specified AMI BIOS !

If you are looking for the BIOS Flash Upgrade...

But be warned any mistake will trash your board !

Please let us know if it is something else you are looking for.

Hello guys:

I'm wondering if anyone can help me out here. I have an Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer that has a dead motherboard. I can't find the replacement for the exact motherboard as it is no longer available.

Here's a link to what's inside it.

I'd like to find the exact one or a motherboard that will work with the processor it already has. Don't need anything special, just something that will be compatible in it's place.

Any suggestions guys?

Thanks in advance!

A:Looking for an Acer Aspire M1100 Compatible Motherboard

The problem is often the case. Big box systems ie dell, hp, etc are proprietary; that is they are made to the mfg's spec and NOT industry standard spec. A standard atx mb may or may not fit correctly in the case. You have to measure the case, check standoff locations, etc.

Next issue is the os. Windows oem type license is valid only with the original hardware ie mb. The only board you can replace it with is the replacement you purchase from acer. Any other mb will require a new copy of windows.

In short if you are doing this for a learning experience, that is fine. Any other reason is just not cost effective; ie it is going to cost you way more to fix it than to just purchase a new system.

Hello everyone,

I just bought some Hardware to build a new computer from Scratch.

I bought:

1. Asus P5E3 Pro Motherboard (DDR3 RAM DIMMS)
2. PSU Coolmax CUL-750B 750W
3. 2x2GB OCZ OCZ3G10664GK R (DDR3 RAM)
4. VGA Card - ASUS ENGTS250/DI/512MD3
5. Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66Ghz 1333

I installed Windows 7 x64bit OEM

I am having problems with BSOD (different ones not the same one every time)

I would like to know if its a compatibility Problem with My RAM and Motherboard or could it be something else. I am very bad with Hardware and I just bought parts that I knew could fit in theory.

BIOS is set to default because I don't know how to configure it (Probably thinking why did I buy parts instead of a built computer)

Could you please help?

A:Compatible RAM for Asus P5E3 Pro Motherboard (BSOD)

Your RAM isn't on Asus' memory QVL (Qualified Vendors List)-but that isn't to say that it's not supported.
Having your power supply checked might be an option if your graphics card seems to run slow or you are getting fluctuating performance.
Because OCZ memory modules lack what are called embedded XMP profiles, your motherboard will have difficulty assigning a setting for them so you will need to do it manually.
Download Memtest86+ from here
***under the Memtest86+ v4.00, select "Download -Pre-compiled bootable iso ", save and unzip if downloading the zip file then burn a BOOTABLE CD using ImgBurn or your usual burning software (Nero etc.).- this program runs at BIOS level
Download MemSet here
You can also download CPU-Z -it gives a much simplified version of the RAM timings but you can also access chipset and CPU info. download here

First order of business would be ascertain whether the RAM modules are not defective.
I presume the RAM in question is OCZ's Gold XTC modules - if they are then you can try to manually select the timings- they should be on a sticker on the side of the RAM, which should be 7-7-7-21 ( CAS (or CL)-tRCD-tRP-tRAS) at 1.5 to 1.6 volts.
IF THIS IS NOT YOUR RAM THEN GO NO FURTHER, If it is then you need to set it in order to test it for stability.
Boot into your BIOS. Select the second tab "A.I.Tweaker"
Set PCIE Frequency to 100 (if not already set)
Set DRAM Frequency to DDR3-1066 (if not already set)
Set DRAM Command rate to 2T (if not already set)
Set DRAM Timing Control to Manual
Note the string of timings following "Pri.Information" on the next line-they should be the same as the settings you are about to input.
Set CAS# Frequency to 7 DRAM Clocks
Set RAS# to CAS# Delay to 7 DRAM Clocks
Set RAS# Precharge to 7 DRAM Clocks
Set RAS# Active time to 21 DRAM Clocks
leave the rest of the timings on Auto for now and move down the page until you get to..
DRAM Voltage ....type in 1.60
Hit F10 to save and exit
**If you can boot into windows then run Memset (NOT the Memtest86+ cd you burned!) and note -or better still get a screen capture of the timings (and include in your next post)-here is an example of one of my old screenshots-take no notice of the values but note that both modules SPD (A and B )values are shown-so expand the window.

** If you cannot load Windows then get back to the BIOS and revert settings by choosing Restore Defaults, F10 to save and exit. The likely cause will be insufficient MCH (Northbridge) voltage.
If Memset shows you the correct values and voltage then you can move on to testing.
Reboot and select CD as your first bootable drive
Insert your Memtest86+ bootable cd into the drive
Hit F10 to save and exit
Memtest86+ will boot automatically once the motherboard POST's. As it's a DOS program it is fairly straightforward -The test actually comprises 8 seperate tests. Once all 8 have run then your RAM has completed a "Pass" -for 4Gb a Pass takes around 20-30 minutes.
Run 7 (minimum) to 12 passes. If the testing shows no errors then stop the test at your leisure.
Return to your BIOS, change the boot order back to Harddrive (I assume)
Take the CD out of the drive
F10 to save and exit -congratulations your RAM is stable. The next step would be to stress test the CPU/RAM fo test for stability- but one thing at a time

If the test throws up errors then note the Number of the test and the error code- the test will continue if the errors are not to great. If the testing serquence stops then stop the test, reboot, change boot order, remove cd and F10.
The RAM could fail from either physical damage it has suffered or the timing (and sub-timings) are unstable. We can look into that if the need arises.

title says it.

the motherboard is a pci express ht2000. I want to upgrade to a 500w power supply, but I've read that certain motherboards will only have room for 20 power connectors and certain power supplies may not work because of that.

In short, I've searched a lot to no avail trying to find out if I can upgrade my power supply. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

A:I want to replace power supply, not sure if motherboard is compatible

Is it an AMD board? AMD SW300?

In any case, replacement power supplies often come with both types. But you could always count them, too.

Yes, the link below contains the CPU support list for the motherboard in question. Just as a pointer to you or others that may view this thread in the future; you can always search the website of your motherboard manufacturer and then check the CPU support list and QVL (Qualified Vending list) for compatible memory before purchasing items.
