OK, it's been a while since I've spent time researching hardware on this forum, and I'm hoping for an easy answer to my question.
Here are my current specs:
Opus 120W DC-DC
Via Epia MII12000
Slot load dvd
USB PCI Hub
I'm basically looking to upgrade my motherboard/processor for better video/dvd and flash performance.
Any tips on whats going to be an easy swap while still giving me good performance?
So I got the Elite, swapped out the Epia, and my monitor is getting no VGA signal right now. Not too happy.
Actually I can hear the fan running but I don't think the board is posting cause I hear no beap. I'll have to double check my wiring.
remove any add on cards and hard drives... does it post? if not reset your CMOS, and try again.
PPI PC4100, PPI PC2350
Testing new board (Albatron KI690-AM2)
"I dont know if complaints were filed, or mistakes were made, but feelings were hurt." -Krystal Washington
Still no dice.
Could it be a memory issue? I'm using 512 mb PC3200 DDR from my old system. New board states 'Maximum DDR of up to 1GB DDR266'.
Edit: but I thought memory was backwards compatible.
Anybody have any other ideas? Should I send this motherboard back?
agree with tn6478, the board is quality built and having good performance ... i personally use it ....
