Hi everybody,

 

I am new on this forum, I am French, and help my family, friends, ... in computer use and maintenance.

 

I have an old computer which motherboard needs replacement. It doesn't start and chipset becomes very hot. The MB is an Asrock 775i65GV .

I don't want to re install a new window XP, as I have dedicated software on the Maxtor HDD (Diamondmax Plus 9 ,80GB), and I prefer to have no change on the system itself.

 

I found several 775i65G used motherboards with a good price, with installed CPU and RAM.

 

So my question is : can I replace the package 775i65GV + CPU + RAM , with a used (but operating)  775i65G + CPU + RAM in my old system, and have no trouble at disk boot?

The two MB look similar (chipset, form factor,...)

Thanks in advance for your support.

Best regards

 

Jean-Michel

Better if you find an identical board, (same model as the one you have), because there might be some hardware differences between the775i65G and the 775i65GV which would require different drivers, though if they come with the mobo driver disk, you might be able to get it to work.

Hi JHMcG,

 

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, I know some drivers will have to be installed once Windows has started up. I m wondering if the system will start up and boot on the HDD. 

I ve not found a similar offer as the one with the used 775i65G. I'd probably better wait to find exactly the same MB.

 

Any other opinions on this issue?

 

JM

If it isn't too expensive you could try buying the 775i65G, so that if you can't find the identical board, you can always try the 775i65G. There is a fairly good chance it will work.

The key to whether it will work is, Do both motherboards use the same Chipset?

 

Good Luck

Thanks rotor123.

You're right, and what I see on Asrock website is

 

775i65G

- Northbridge: Intel® 865G
- Southbridge: Intel® ICH5

 

 

775i65GV

- Northbridge: Intel® 865GV
- Southbridge: Intel® ICH5

 

The main difference is that the  Intel® 776i65G includes an AGP slot, and therefore, the chipset has to manage this, but I could not find a comparison on these two old chipsets from Intel web support.

Anybody can help?

Regards

 

JM

Additional info from Wikipedia:

 

 

865G Springdale 82865G (GMCH) ICH5/ICH5R May 2003 Pentium 4, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D 400/533/800 MHz No Dual channel DDR 266/333/400 4 GB No/No v2.3/33 MHz AGP 8× & Intel Extreme Graphics 2 12.9 W

 

865GV Springdale-GV 82865GV (GMCH) ICH5/ICH5R September 2003 Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D 400/533/800 MHz No Dual channel DDR 266/333/400 4 GB No/No v2.3/33 MHz Integrated

 

I do not blieve the difference on Video management will avoid the system to start up.

If anybody can confirm this, I will be more confident :-)
