Preferred Solution: Mobo update

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.)

Yes, PCIE 2.0 will support a 2.1 card.

Hi all,

I have a MSI k7 pro via kt 266a mobo with an athlon xp1600, served me well, however time has moved on.
1/ MSIs website states the max cpu my mobo can take is xp2100 (upgradeing cpu would be cheapest option). Does anyone know any different?

2/ There are some good "bargains" in mobos, as low as 80 bucks Australian, able to take an AMD 64 3200 , based on SIs chipsets. Of the chipsets available, eg, Sis , Via , nforce, are folk noticing any "real world" difference between them.

I occasionally edit and render video-rendering times not a key consideration and occasionally play Lomac and Il2 flight sims. Thats it. Apart from surf the net.

Your input appreciated. Thanks

Hi all,

If i wanted to change the mobo and cpu from my current system, do i have to do anything to my current state of software etc..?
Will it work if i exchanged parts and hit the power on button and continue?
Don't mean to sound flippant - just no other way of saying it.

A:Mobo Drivers Update - Need Help

Hey Craig,
Show you ones first you should do, if version are in there installation will let you know you are putting older ones in, then just cancel if not install them. For one at ASUS site choose Windows 10 64bit or 32bit whichever your system is.

2 important for now
MEI_V11.0.0.1155_20150709_WHQL_1.5M this is Intel Management Interface engine
Intel Chipset V10.1.1.7 for Win10 32bit&64bit this is the Intel chipset drivers

SATA Controllers would be next, looks to me only standard ones in there and ASUS site shows 2, Intel and ASMedia drivers.
Get back to this one, more involved on installing SATA Drivers after installing Operating system as they are usually done just before.

Audio drivers if you are using the integrated card, then sure ones there are recent enough or can even go to Realtek, but be best to do it there and can count on Windows update to get you right ones for those.

VGA are again for integrated card if that is what you use ,do you have a PCI Slot card ? If not these are it, but if a slot card we can check this more and can be obtained at NVIDIA or AMD site whichever it is.

Network Adapter LAN and Wireless look correct if you right click each select Properties then the driver tab, compare driver version to one on ASUS site. Be same way with Bluetooth.

Start first with top 2, then work with SATA Controller drivers, no need to rush it.

I have an extremely old computer which I wanted to see if it could boot from USB. I checked the motherboard to see if I could change the boot order to USB but all I could change it too was "Removable Devices" which I then put in the #1 spot to boot. I restarted my computer with my USB drive plugged in, but it booted to XP like normal.

Is there a bios update that I can update my mobo too, so that it can boot to usb or is it just too old?

Here is a screenshot from cpu-z of my motherboard.

my computer specs: just added 4GB RAM plus anew video card. reason why i am looking for an update is bc my usable RAM is 2.67GB out of 4 GB.

HP Pavilion a1120n Desktop PC Product Specifications - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

A:MOBO update can't find need some help

First thing is that motherboard only supports up to 4 GB of ram, so regardless of running 32 bit or 64 bit Windows you will never get the full 4 GB. This should help explain it some,

The system memory that is reported in the System Information dialog box in Windows Vista is less than you expect if 4 GB of RAM is installed

Various devices in a typical computer require memory-mapped access. This is known as memory-mapped I/O (MMIO). For the MMIO space to be available to 32-bit operating systems, the MMIO space must reside within the first 4 GB of address space.

For example, if you have a video card that has 256 MB of onboard memory, that memory must be mapped within the first 4 GB of address space. If 4 GB of system memory is already installed, part of that address space must be reserved by the graphics memory mapping. Graphics memory mapping overwrites a part of the system memory. These conditions reduce the total amount of system memory that is available to the operating system.

The reduction in available system memory depends on the devices that are installed in the computer. However, to avoid potential driver compatibility issues, the 32-bit versions of Windows Vista limit the total available memory to 3.12 GB. See the "More information" section for information about potential driver compatibility issues.

If a computer has many installed devices, the available memory may be reduced to 3 GB or less. However, the maximum memory available in 32-bit versions of Windows Vista is typically 3.12 GB.

Going by what you say is available I would guess that your new video card has 1 GB of memory on it. If so it has to be mapped as well, and it in addition to the rest of what is described above would bring it down to what you're seeing. Also did you remember (or did it auto-disable) the onboard video? If not that will get you another 128 MB freed up.

A:Help with Mobo Bios Update

what did you update? If you did not complete updating your BIOS, you will need to send the motherboard into the manufactuer for a physical hardware reprogram. BIOS updating is one area where you need to be exact, precise, and patient. It is not an amateur task.

BIOS is FIRMWARE not hardware.

Afterwards I intend to change out the CPU's.

A:BIOS Update on a GA-Z68X-UD5-B3 MOBO

It shouldn't be a problem as BIOS updates are usually backward compatible and just have "added support" for whatever hardware.

When you update the BIOS, follow the update instructions exactly and don't have anything else running (e.g. browser or e-mail) so as to not interfere with the BIOS update. Keep in mind a failed BIOS update can corrupt the BIOS and unless your motherboard has a BIOS recovery option, worse case it can require a motherboard replacement.

It looks like ACC is a utility for unlocking AMD CPU hidden cores for 'overclocking'.

I was reading that your Intel motherboard drivers should be updated. I watched the video and it seemed so easy. It said you can run it even if your mobo is not Intel with no harm done. The target to do so is below.
I am only an average pc user. Is updating the mobo drivers as important as was being stressed and is it a rather fool proof procedure. I have no idea.

I just swapped motherboards, purchased Windows XP Home Edition with SP2, and did a repair install without the Recovery Console, as instructed by a manual I read.

After I configured everything, and activating Windows through the internet during the installation wizard of Windows XP, I tried updating through the Windows Update on the Microsoft website.

It tells me I currently have 77 updates available. The updater downloads all 77, then quickly notifies me that all 77 updates have failed to install, listing all of them that failed.

This happens when I try to update Windows Media Player 10 to WMP 11 also.

Any ideas on how I can resolve this issue, please write back. Thanks in advance.

I need a bios update for this motherboard, i do not know what model these boards were used in so I cannot locate the correct bios update on the compaq website for it. It is physically identical to the FIC AZ31, but made for compaq and I guess the FIC bios is not compatible with the compaq board. I have two of these boards that I cannot get to work with modems or NIC cards. These would have been Socket A Athlon or duron systems sold in late 2000 or early 2001. If you can tell me about the specific model numbers I would appreciate it. Thanks.

A:Chaintech VNF4 Ultra VE Mobo, how to flash/update BIOS?


Hello all,

I've come back to the forums in hopes you good people can help me out as you have numerous times before in my previous threads.

I just upgraded my Bro's PC, installed the "Chaintech VNF4 Ultra VE Mobo," I installed an AMD 64 X2 4400+ CPU. I went to Chaintechs website to check for latest drivers/updates for the Mobo. They have a new BIOS update (date: 6/03/2005)that allows the Mobo to support AMD 64 X2 (Dual Core) CPU's. I installed Win XP Pro w/SP2, everything seems to be running fine. I am not sure if my CPU is being supported & recognized as a Dual Core Chip, so I decided to try & flash/update the BIOS.

I D/L the BIOS update onto a floppy disk. I rebooted my PC, during the POST @ the bottom it states to hit "ATL+F2" to enter the AwardFlash Utility. I assume this is how one flashed/updates the BIOS. So did that, then it instructs me to place the floppy into the drive & hit ENTER, when I do, it takes me to an interface displaying the Award Flash Utility V8.57 & the following:

"For NF-CK804-VN61F210C-00 DATE:02/03/2005


@ the bottom of the page it says..."message: Please wait!" but the message keeps flashing & nothing happens. I've left it alone for 30 mins & when I came back the same screen & message still there.

Am I doing something wrong? I have flashed a BIOS on my Biostar Mobo which was located in the Bios setup page & went through smoothly. I assume something is wrong which is not allowing the BIOS to flash & install the latest BIOS update. I just want to make sure the BIOS is updated so that my AMD64 X2 CPU is supported & working fine. How does one check to make sure AMD 64 X2 Dual Core chips are running as Dual Core & are being recognized by the Mobos?

Any help suggestions are greatly appreciated. I already emailed chaintech support, but they have yet to respond. They only seem to support Mobos through emails & not over the phone.Click to expand...

There is a way to check if your Processor is being recognised as dual-core. Load up windows and press ctrl+atl+delete. CLick the performance tab and look at the CPU Usage History window. If there are 2 seperate windows, the processor is running in dual core mode. If there is just one, it is not.

I'm upgrading a computer and I'm having difficulties with loading. I am replacing just the mother board, processor chip, and the ram chip. I am re-using the hard drives, cd/dvd drives, and everything else.

I've upgraded from:
an AMD chip to a P4 3.0e w/ HT
an unknown AMD mobo to a DFI PS85-BL ver B1 mobo

I will be using 512 mb ddr 400 pc3200 kingston ram

I already called DFI and they said that I need to unistall the system drivers. Of course, I tried uninstalling all device drivers and then shut down and rebuilt computer. When I booted, the computer asked for safe mode or boot normally. No matter what I select, it automatically reboots.

Any ideas, instructions, or definite fixes?

Run the motherboard outside the case with just CPU and memory installed. See if it starts. If not, the CPU could be fried or you have a defective motherboard. I hope you didn't use the old power supply with the replacement motherboard, if you did, you probably fried the 2nd motherboard

I have an eMachine desktop that Iam repairing for a friend,
we have come to the conclusion (from experience) that because it is dead
even when trying to turn it on that it has suffered from Capacitor Plague
(Perhaps in the PSU then damaging the MoBo)
A new PSU has been tried and it still doesn't work
WHAT Type of 'cheap' motherboard could I replace the current one with?
it has a Celeron processor so we will be looking to conserve that..
I was looking at this...
or (incase his CPU is socket 478)
will this one be compatible?

Sorry I didnt read the guide of how to make a good post.

I have an Emachine for about 4yrs now. 2 weeks ago I turned it on and it turned right back off, I thought it was the power supply, but it wasnt. I took it to Best Buy, told me it was the motherboard. I dont want to spend money on another mother board since emachine sucks, I already spent $400 last year to get my cd drive fixed. U guys say an ATX motherboard is good and cheap, its way better than an emachine mobo. The problem is I dont know which ATX mobo(a good one) to get for my emachine. My emachine is a W350.

Please respond

A:Which ATX mobo should I get to replace with my emachine mobo

The tricky part of this is you will probably have to not only replace the motherboard, but also the power supply, processor and memory

Here's an example:

The power supply is old and you wouldn't want to damage a new motherboard would you. The old memory is DDR. The new board takes DDR2 memory. You may be able to use the old CPU or processor

Hey guys, I am building my second system and am just wondering what mobo to get.

I don't full understand the advantages that a 64bit system will bring but I know that a dual processor will do wonders for my work flow (I have a 3D modeller who renders alot). I was just wondering if you know of a dual processor mobo which is also 64bit. That would be the best of both worlds in my opinion.

Any advice you can give would be great.

A:64 bit mobo vs dual processor mobo?

Any preferences between intel and AMD?

If you are going AMD, get a socket 939 motherboard with the nforce4 chipset, like this one for example:

I replaced the mobo on my Dell 5510. Purchased from Dell. Sticker on mobo says BIOS ver A05. About every other day I get blue screen and physical dump of memory. My system info says my BIOS ver is A07. How do I go about changing BIOS? Is it as simple as pulling battery for 15 seconds? Some have offered this suggestion but I get a little worried at "friends" advice.

A:Replaced MOBO on Dell 5510 BIOS sticker on MOBO says A05, system in still has BIOS of A07

Removing the battery won't change the BIOS version. You need to download the version you require from the Dell site. From Windows you "flash" the BIOS. Take your time preparing for this. If anything goes wrong you will wreck your motherboard.

A:No mobo light, new PSU, new mobo

Well, I don't know about a motherboard that requires "400 Watts". I think that the CPU, and even more importantly, the graphics card combine to set the tone of how much power is likely to be drawn.

Moving along, the "clicking" you heard could be the PSU cutting out due to a short circuit. Check the board to case standoffs, and make certain every one you have in place, has solder lands under the screws. (These are intended to be grounded). If there is no solder land under a screw, remove that particular standoff. BTW did you hook up the ATX (4 pin) connector, the plug near the CPU, and did you connect the PCIE- 6 pin connector to the video card? (This assumes the card you're using needs one)

That bad news is that you may have damaged the board, if indeed it was a short.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?

Microsoft Windows 7 already has DirectX 11, so installing version 9 will always fail and is useless. It also has VC++ redistributable 2005 and 2008. The latest version which is not included on Windows 7 is VC++ 2010 redistributables which you should install (but very few games are designed in VC++ 2010 today). When games fail, they create a crash report or log. You should go through them and try to find the possible cause. What message do games show when crashing?Check Event Viewer to find the possible cause of crashing of a game.

Hard to say if the LEDs will light if the motherboard sustained damage. Usually LEDs are pretty hardy, but if the particular circuit is fried, they won't.

Bulging capacitors are a bad sign of deteriation and they are also dangerous. Capacitors contain some nasty and quite toxic chemicals. Don't touch them or breathe any vapors.

Three fixes you may try:

2. Remove display card & clean as per step 1 (if a display card is fitted)

I just received an AMD Phenom X4 9950

When the machine boots up, it displays a warning that says

The max power of the CPU is over 95w, prepare for shutdown

I went to the Biostar website and I figured out that the CPU uses too much "w" for the motherboard to handle. I looked at some new bios releases and it seemed that there were some new bios' that supported different CPU's

My question is this: Does anyone know if the mobo and cpu are at all compatible? If so, do i need to upgrade my bios?

thanks so much!


A:Mobo and CPU don't like each other... Is there a fix?

the bios updates are for new cpu compatability, as they are released,and to fix issues. they don't change the wattage rating of the board.

What do you think the potential of overclocking on above MOBO? I have a 633 celeron on it right now. The site also said the board is 133 ready and able to take 1400 Tualatine Celeron with FCPGA. The problem is that, there is not FCPGA available, only FCPGA2 for Intel 1.2 and above.

I can see the freq, does swicthing it from 100 to 133 really boost me comp performance up to 841 ??? Any foreseable problem?? The box has a pathetic power supply (100 Watt) !!!

Getting a new computer, but would like to learn a few things out of this obsoleted machine.


A:What can you do with this MOBO?

humm? Hang it on your wall with a label marked Crap. These boards suck - the technical info on them is short and terrible. Onboard video is terrible for gaming, there's no agp slot. The list of supprted cpu's doesn't even show your cpu. And if i'm not mistaken the Celeron 633 runs at 66Mhz not 100Mhz as most older celerons do. 300 watt powersupply is the minimum a computer should have these days. Overclocking may not be possible on this board - these boards don't compare to asus or intel boards.

I have an old pentium 1 @200mhz (MMX) that I want to put in my computer that currently has a cyrix M-II-300 @233mhz, is this possible? Do I need to change settings in my bios (AMI bios), and if so, what settings? Are there jumpers on the mobo I will need to change? What info about my mobo or the chip do I need to do this, I am clueless.
P.S. You may be asking why I would want to downgrade to 200mhz. This old chip has MMX, the current one I am using, doesnt. I cannot play divx compressed movies because its too CPU intense. They played fine on my old comp with the pentium 200mhz (MMX) and 95 megs of ram, however they wont play very well on this cyrix 233mhz with 128 megs of ram!

A:How to put an old CPU into my mobo

cyrix upgrade

First, are you sure your cyrix doesn't have mmx? On cpu-world it says the cyrix has mmx. This could be an error though. Also what motherboard do you have?

A:CPU or mobo?

Wow sounds bad.
Not a lot of information however to the post.
Can you boot to windows or safe mode?

If not not to much trouble.
Follow the instruction HERE

You need to mount it ot CD and boot from that. It will check your RAM and CPU for problems. If anything is found then generally the hardware needs replacing. Run it for 7 passes.

If nothing fails on there run check disk.

If problems are found usually they mean a replacement again but sometimes not.

Does Anyone here know if Abit Mobo is good ? Because i used an msi on my old comp and i gotta say msi feels pretty crappy because it burned out on me when i installed the cpu :dead: just making another custom comp and wondered if Abit was good . Also can you guys recommend some good mobos.

ps: Please Recommend Some Mobos that Work With AMD 64 3500+ and ATI

If you do not have an OEM version, when you are ready just install. Give your key after installation, not during. Most drivers etc, will be already installed.

With an OEM it can only be used on one machine
With upgrade only one machine at a time

I was just reading the back of my mobo case, and it says, "Supports LGA775 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 Precessor with HT Technology." What????? It can take a 775 socket processor? Mobo - ECS P4m800Pro

A:478 Mobo w/775 P4?

Well, that must be a typo. There is no way that socket 478 could support a LGA775 processor (because the with LGA775, the pins are on the mobo not the processor) but there are P4s with HT for socket 478... so that must be what they meant.

Hey guys,

I want to upgrade my memory in my Dell Inspiron 9100. So, I went to to see what type of ram i needed. I was able to find some Kingston Value RAM on cheaper. It matched all of the Specs of the ram on crucial, except the voltage was 2.6v instead of 2.5v. Is there a way to use this RAM in my computer? Is there a way to change that voltage setting in my BIOS? I have this RAM and I dont want to send it back unless I have to. Thanks!!!

Hello, I just bought a new motherboard and realized that my old XP disc probably isnt going to work with this one since it came from DELL. Ithere anyway around this problem?? I'd like it to be as legal as possible

A:XP and a new mobo

Hi, As much as we all do not like the policy, Microsoft says that replacing the motherboard is the one foolproof way to "cancel" your copy of XP> it will not be reactivated on an OEM computer like a Dell, if you replace the motherboard with anything but a very very close match as it had, and it has to be a Dell part. Upgrading by replacing the mobo and trying to use the same OEM copy of XP is not allowed, though you may hear stories that it has been. I've heard and read them, also. If you can call Microsoft and they allow the activation, well, that's fine, but Microsoft has come out with more strict enforcement with motherboard changes.
You will need a new clean install of XP, and you should buy a new copy of XP Home or Pro, (or another operating system), and that copy may be OEM or full retail. Advantage of the full retail> it's transferable to new computers or when you upgrade- you will not have the activation problem next time you upgrade.
OEM copies are married to that computer built the original way as when XP was installed (motherboard). You can add or change drives, other parts, like video....but, doing too much at once may prompt for reactivation. Your activation vs. hardware configuration is reset after I think 120 days...that is, your new arrangement becomes the new basis after that amount of time. Last I read, that policy was still in place.
As you may know, if you do not get XP activated after 30 days you end up not being able to do much.

Hi Y'all,

I have just installed a new MoBo with a 1.8 GH Celeron, a new video card, with a nic card also. I would like to use my old HD that has Win95 and enough space for what I need. Do I need to re-install my operating system? It doesn't seem to want to boot when win95 comes up. Am I just wasting my time with the old drive?

A:Using new 24-pin PSU on old 20-pin mobo?

I definately don't think it will "over-power" the eMachines. A system will only take as much power as it needs, leaving a lot left over from that 500-Watts. As long as you get that 24-20 pin adapter, the eMachines and the power supply will be fully compatible, presenting no problems.

Hi Guys
My mate has a pc with a 2.5 Intel processor. He had it built for him and it looks like the mobo was as cheap as the guy could get.
Could you reccomend one that takes the above processor but has good onboard video and sound.., and takes a nice bit of ddr ram.
I live in the uk and usually use e
He wants to go for quality so the price isnt an issue, as long as its not over 1000 lol

Hello all!

I'm looking for the best AM2 mobo that won't burn a hole in my pocket (less than 110$).

I need it to:
Be ok with DDR2 800 1.8V ram.
Be ok with Athlon64 X2 3800+.
Be ok with 1 IDE (2 devices) (2 IDEs would be nice, but not needed).
Be ok with atleast 1 sata version 1.
Be ok with a PCI Express x16 gfx card (SLI not needed, I dont have any SLI cards anyways).

And, ofcourse, be reliable.

I've looked and looked, but many boards have many problems and I am confused at where to look (one has to update the bios but provides a bios with a typo? wtf?)
