    MSI (MicroStar International Inc.), made the MS-6553 mobo, especially for HP. Won't be on their website. Sources state the MS-6373, is the retail version of that proprietary mobo. (MOtherBOard). Suggest you download the motherboard manual for the MS-6373, and see. On this page left-click on Download, to the right of - File: 6373v1.11.exe Version:--Release Date:--. In the small window that pops up, left-click on Save File. Where the file will go. It will go to My Documents, (Start > My Documents), and perhaps to a subfolder - Downloads. Or, it will go to your desktop screen. When you see the file (6373v1.11) double-click on it. It is a .rar file. Microsoft will pop up a warning, "Warning this publisher could not be verified, ya-da, ya-da". It's okay. Left-click on Run. In the next window left-click on Install. (It isn't installing anything) Close the window. (My Documents, or the sub-folder Downloads) Reopen the window you closed. The motherboard manual will be there. 6373v1.1 Double-click right on the file. What specifically are you looking for? Front Panel header pinouts? Page 34. CPU Support? (Processor), or Ram Memory? Let me know in a Comment. Cannot download the .rar file, or open it? Let me know what info you need.

    This is somewhat like what I have. However, my mobo has only 3 PCI slots and not as many connectors (in some locations). On page 2-14 of this manual there is what appears might be what I am looking for. It is the JSP1 connection (3 pins) and this says it is for an audio device with a digital input. Not sure what that means. On my mobo there is another four pin connection to the left of the AGP slot. Don't see one of those on this unless it is one of the ones listed on page 2-14 of the same manual. The JSP1 looks the same as mine but don't know if it is the same. Any way to know for sure? Thank you so much for your help. I have pictures of my mobo if that would help.

RAM Capacity of Motherboard MS 6166

unfortunately there are no sites with info on this board, but similair ones can take upto 512MB of ram, but you would be wise trying a matching 128MB stick in the other slot. You will have to visit a computer fair to get hold of sdram or try ebay.
