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?

Problem nic failure

is the Network Interface on board the motherboard?
if it is, go into CMOS and turn it off, remove/disable/uninstall it from the device manager in windows. restart. go back into CMOS and turn it back on, it should find drivers and reinstall.

if it doesn't, go back into CMOS and turn it back off, remove/disable/uninstall from device manager, check to see what kind of slot you have open and purchase a new card.

dear mugkifa ,


the above error indicates , a non maskable interrupt occurred in your server , there may be a change of malfunction of a hardware ,like add on cards

one more solution in ibm server is disablig the NMI interrupt by using jumper settings (inside motherboard)

see the below mentioned details , may differ with your server series please refer with series on

System-board jumpers
The following illustration shows the switches and jumpers on the system board:
migr-5069937_2.gif Note: Any jumper blocks on the system board that are not shown in the illustration are reserved. The following table describes the function of each jumper block:
Jumper Settings CMOS jumper (JP3) Pins 1 and 2: Keep CMOS data (default)
Pins 2 and 3: Clear the CMOS data, which clears the power-on password and administrator password Boot block jumper (JP4) Pins 1 and 2: Normal (default)
Pins 2 and 3: Recover boot block NMI (non-maskable interrupt) switch (SW1) Normal (default): No NMI issued
The NMI button that is on the rear of server, connected to this switch, has been pressed: NMI issued

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.

Onboard bios disabled on Kt3 Ultra CE motherboard

all you have to do is reset the cmos, find the jumper and clear it, if you cant find the jumper then remove the motherboard battery for 10 mins (make sure the there is no power cord attached) that should reset the cmos, it also could be an old pc in which the bios doesn't support 64bit addressing, this means it will only recognise a hard drive of up to 40 gig, you could try a bois flash but i don't recomend it as you can kill the computer if something goes wrong

All sw1 1-4 and sw2 1-8 = OFF, PIII at 133 MHz, SDRAM at 133MHz, and AGP card 2x, not 4x or 8x.
Try it PII and SDRAM 100MHz after.

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
