Hi,

I bought a new PC with Intel DP35DP motherboard, and I tried to setup windows server 2003 on it, but it is not working, I don't know why?
and I'm planing to setup Linux on it, but I don't know if it will work or not,so

May you please tell me if this motherboard supports Linux especially, and windows server 2003, or not? and if not what I have to do?
Do I have to update the BIOS or what?

Do I have to change this motherboard to other brand like GigaByte (GA-P35-DS4 for example) or other brands?
Give me suggesions of motherboards supports the above operating systems

I hope someone more experienced can help me with this-
I have ordered an Intel Celeron D 320 (2.4GHz) to build a economical, 'average' spare system. The new "D" is based on the latest Prescott architecture but does not include hyperthreading, and its L2 cache is smaller. They apparently overclock impressively well, however, and should be great for 'average users' (non-gamers). And the price is 'right' at around 70 dollars presently. I've seen a number of very positive reviews of the new "D". It is apparently *way* better than all previous Celerons including the earlier P4 type Celerons.

Here's my concern- the MB I have on hand and planned to use with it looks like it *may* not be compatible with the CPU. It's an Acorp 4S648FXL. The BIOS chip on the board is marked "4S648FXL | 1.0 4800 | 2003/08/27". The box it came in is marked "4S648FXL-11-A01" above the UPC. It's an 'A01' revision level, apparently.

On the Acorp website, the support page offers the latest BIOS version 1.2 / 2004-9-22 and says it will "Support Prescott with FSB 533 Mhz CPU (PCB 1.0 with A03 sticker)". I have that sinking feeling that the 'A03' sticker means a physically different version of the MB than my 'A01' version. OR- is it just an earlier BIOS version?? So the question is basically this- can I safely assemble the rev. A01 MB with my Celeron D 320 CPU and then do a BIOS fl... Read more

A:Intel Celeron D Mother Board Compatibility?

There is a good chance your CeleronD is not compatible with that board. I ran into this problem when we switched over to the CeleronD at work, we had to make sure we were getting the newer revision of the board (Albatron PM266 Pro), as the older one looked identical, but was not compatible (and no BIOS update would fix that).

It's true that they overclock well, I got my 2.66GHz one up to 3.4GHz without even needing to increase the CPU voltage.

Pin compatible? The sockets look identical, if that's what you mean. But boards may require hardware changes (e.g. improved power delivery) to support a Prescott. You aren't likely to damage a board by plugging one in, it just won't boot.

No, the motherboard supplies the voltage to it. The CPU tells the motherboard the voltage it wants, but some boards (including mine) allow you to increase the voltage.

Hi,I own a HP Omni 27-1015t  with a GeForce GT 540M card.  Unfortenuately, I am not able to install windows 10 due to compatilibity issues. After contacting HP support some months ago, I finally got around to removing the card today (as they suggested), but when I switch on the computer again, the display is blank. Is there anything outside of removing the card I need to do for the mother board graphics to kick in?  Only thing HP support suggested was to remove the card, install win10 and then put the card back into the computer (it should be win10 compatible).  I did try to install win10 with the card in, but was not able to get the correct graphics. Hoping for some good tip here.  Thank you. RegardsAre

hi im having a problem with my asus k8v-se mother board. i bought a new HD and it detects all the way up to when the mother board is detecting everything in the bios but then when i have the windows xp disk inserted and it says "click here to install windows xp" or whatever it says "cannot detect any hard disk drives, cannot go any further". i dont know why it keeps doing this.

i called up asus and they told me that it can be that my mother board needs to have certain drivers on it because its sata and i need to set it as my primary sata. can someone please help me!?
 

A:Problem with reinstalling windows with a K8V-SE mother board

I am assuming your new hard drive is a SATA drive. what Asus is referring to is the sata drivers which shoud have come with your motherboard. usually they are on a floppy disk. if you dont have them you should be able to download them from Asus.

Hey Guys,
I guess there is too much text in this post but I wanted to give you all a clear description of my problem please help. I have attached few screen shots as well.

I have some problems with my USB ports. I have 2 ports in front and 4 at the back (on the mother board). All these ports were working fine, since last 2-3 weeks there seems to be some problem with it.

I have a webcam that I connect via the back USB port, I never disconnect it. Recently the power supply unit failed when I tried to start the pc. So I replaced it with a new one, everything was back to normal.

Then after a few days or a week I opened my pc because it one of the front USB ports was not detecting my flash drive, while doing this I disconnected all the wires from the back of the CPU including the webcam.

When I restarted the pc the back USB ports stopped detecting any devices, there was a pop up stating, "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it"
So I tried connecting it in the front port, there came a pop up stating, "Your USB Mass Storage Device can perform faster if it is plugged into a hi-speed port"

I never use to get a message like this in the past and another thing I noticed was that the transfer speed has also reduced drastically. I was copying a few movies to my friend’s flash drive and it took ages,

hi,
I bought a new system. when I try to install windows 7, I get 0 MB free space. I used diskpart and got 512 bytes on disk 0 and no media on disk 1. I've connected both DVD drive and HDD to 6 GbPS port. ububtu was not able to detect HDD. UBUNTU was unable to detect HDD
the config is
Asus P8Z77-M motherboard with UEFI enabledi
WD 2 TB green hard disk

A:UEFI mother board - Unable to install windows

I would disable EFI. This is normally done by enabling Legacy BIOS or removing the EFI Boot disk from BIOS boot order. If this isn't sufficient read your Manual for how to disable EFI which is not needed and more trouble than it's worth unless you have a 3tb HD. You can have as many partitions as you want by limiting to 3 Primary and unlimited Logical.

Then wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command from the Win7 installer accessing DISKPART At PC Startup, followed by the command "Convert MBR" then "Exit." Click Install Now and proceed. Post back verbatim error message if any.

Win7x64 Home Premium ASUS U56E.
Before I sent my system in for warranty repair, I made a disk image onto external drive. I checked the vhd file out--for example Attach VHD allowed me to read all the files. Then I did a full factory restore and sent it into ASUS. It took two RMA's but finally they fixed the problem by replacing the mother board. I presume it was the same part (but difficult to get info from ASUS).

Now I am trying to restore the disk image. After choosing [recover system settings or your computer] -> [Advanced recovery methods] -> [Use a system image created earlier to recover your computer] -. [Skip] -> [Restart] ... "loading files" ... [US language]... I get "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer" an no amount of retry, refresh or anything I can find will help.

I read somewhere that if the mother board is changed, windows will act like this.
If someone knows a way I can restore, I will appreciate it.
I may be willing to settle for attaching the .vhd (as above) and being able to access the backed-up files. But when I try this, it appears that I do not have permission to read them (because of a new mother board?).

One problem that has me perplexed . When a customers motherboard goes down , it means reformatting and re-installing XP. Of course all my customer info is gone. If you try to boot up With the new motherboard XP will not load. It launches a critical error and says the boot sector has a virus. I know that XP has this built in to prevent it from being installed on several different computers . This anti-piracy is based upon motherboards bios.

I will not build a computer with pirated software but when the legal owner of the PC and the software needs his computer fixed he should not have to lose all his info. This is when I miss 98 , ME. Under those most computers it was replace motherboard and after several reboots you were all ready to go with all your data intact.

has anybody come up with a work around for this ?

A:When Mother board goes w/XP

What kind of computer are we talking about? According to MS, if you get an OEM motherboard from the manufacturer, with SLP (System-Locked Preinstall) in the BIOS, that's all you need. They don't mention any re-install. Maybe you can sort it out from This Page Is it possible to do a repair install and save the data?

This is now the 4th time he is reinstalling. Called today, said it's not ready, taking long time to reinstall everything. Told me I could probably pick up a new computer for about 400.00. I told him to just reinstall everything. Told me he was trying, but said that he may not be able to. Can anyone shed some light as to what is going on. I don't trust him all of a sudden.

Well, all u need is a "p4" mobo, becuase all have the same procesor socket. U need 2 mind out whether u have ddr dual ddr or sdram. The easiest thing is, as u said 2 take the mobo 2 the comp guy, and ask him about momory.

Hello,
I am wanting to get a new mother board, to use with the AMD XP 1700 or greater processor. I am wanting to sue RDRam. However all I see is DDRAM boards. Is DD and RD Ram the same thing??? If a mother board supports DDRam will it also support RDRam???
Is there any reomendation for a mother board that will use RDRam and the AMD chip???

Thanks,

Bear
 

A:Mother Board

Currently, there are no motherboards or chipsets that support RDRAM with AMD processors. It could be a possiblity in the future.

RDRAM and DDR RAM are not at all the same thing. They are two different types of memory. None of the memory types are interchangeable. A particular memory slot can only accept one type of memory. Some motherboards support two different types of memory, but they have separate slots for each type, and you can only use memory sticks of one type. You cannot use both types at one time.

How can I find out what mother board I have?

--maxim
 

A:Mother board

You can download sisoftsandra from http://www.tweakfiles.com It will identify some motherboards or else the hard way. Look at it and find the manufacturers make and model or the fcc number. The fcc number is generally located right around the dimm slots.

or you can try ctbios, it will read the bios rom's and report what is there. http://www.windrivers.com/identity/mboard/biosid.htm

All help apreciated.
 

A:How can i tell if my mother board is...

bahh, no english sites with that motherboard for some reason...

Actually, can't find any information about that board at all, you sure you copied it right?

You can always open up the case, and see if there's physically a PCIe x16 slot there or not. Some pics of the PCIex16 and how to differentiate it and the AGPx8 slot here.

Hi,
I have a pentium III system with ASUS CULS2 motherboard and it's running on xp pro. I'm wondering how much hard drive capacity it can keep up with. I tried it with up to 230 GB and it worked and in a while i'm going up to 320GB and wonder whether the mother board will support it. And also i'm wondering how to update the BIOS in case if I have to do that. Should I have to backup the old BIOS before it and where can find the new version? I'm really looking for your help.
Thanks
 

A:mother board help

Should work fine. You'll have to partition the drive.

Now my problem is i need a mother board that can take 4 GB of ram (DDR SDRAM) and we dont need more then 125gb memory, the computer we hae right now has 145gb, and only 30gb are used :/ so i think we an save money froom haveing les mem. I plan on playing Mabinoig, combat arms, Dragons nest,Vindictus,mincraft, and my sister plans on playing Sims 3, all of this on my computer, and being able to record videos like minecraft. on top of that the normal flash games. this is like 10-15 mb of space, not much so alota space isnt needed, but a fast enough mother board is needed.
