I'm upgardeing my ms-7061's cpu from a 1.5 to 2.2

Download > Manual >

Supports AMD Athlon / Athlon XP / Duran (Socket 462) processor.
(Socket 462 = Socket A)

Supports from 1100MHz to 3000+ model.

VIA KM266 Pro motherboard chipset - Front Side Bus support of 266MegaHertz.

(Same specs as a VIA KT266A but with Integrated Graphics.
The 133MHz FSB support shown is doubled. AMD processors are 'Double-pumped')

VIA KM400 motherboard chipset -
FSB support of 266MHz to 333MHz.
(Same as KT400 but with Integrated Graphics)

VIA KM400A motherboard chipset -
FSB support of either 266MHz, 333MHz, or 400MHz
(Same as KT400A but with Integrated Graphics)

Looking at the Bottom/Right corner at the CMOS battery;
There are THREE sets of jumper pins to the bottom right edge of the CMOS battery.

6 pins towards the outside edge of the motherboard, 3 pins to the inside of the motherboard. (Left side of the 6 pins)

On the 6 pins in a row configuration, the top 3 pins is SW1.
The bottom 3 pins is SW2.
The 3 pins to the inside of them is JBAT 1

In the 3 pins for SW1 the bottom pin, or pin closest to the bottom edge of the motherboard, is Pin 1.

Same for SW2. The bottom pin, or pin closest to the bottom edge of the motherboard, is Pin 1.

Jumper on pins;
SW1 pins 2 and 3, SW2 pins 1 and 2 = 266MHz FSB support
SW1 pins 1 and 2, SW2 pins 1 and 2 = 333MHz FSB support

For the KM400A (KT400A) motherboard chipset;
SW1 pins 1 and 2, SW2 pins 2 and 3 = 200MHz FSB support

1) What is the model name, and model number of the AMD processor you are going to use?

2) What kind of Thermal Paste are you using?

3) What are you using to clean the bottom of the Heatsink with, and is the top of the Processor clean?

4) Are you following Anti-Static Precautions?

Theres no audio coming out from my audio jack panel.

the drivers might have been corrupted by something foreign or you might have got a virus run your antivrus program
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall then reinstall both the sound drivers and the sound card make sure you have both of these devices backed up to a disc before uninstalling
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver to do this
right click to install driver also
control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select appropriate speakers also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have made the correct adjustments there
control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can make adjustments there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar
hope this helps

Bios was flashed will not post to bios. Will new cmos battery reset bios?

hi no this board is now u/s any problems flashing a bios will make the board unusable, due to the fact is, it requires the bios for start up if that is corrupt you have no choice but to get another board, changing the battery will only put the bios back to default if it was ok, it will not do it if it is corrupt, sorry but thats the way it is

Adding a video card

if you have a video VGA plug on back of your computer and it is not an added card, then it is built in. You can disable most on-board video via settings in the rom bios.

Initial configuration

OK. Found something interesting. There is a little red box with 10 switches on it. The box is an inch long and half a centemetre wide. Each switch is labled in sequence; 1, 2, 3, etc.

There are little charts or tables or whatever on the mainboard that describe what each switch can do.

This one say's:

CLEAR CMOS...............SW1-5....ON
