Keepalive battery failed how do I get BIOS to work again


If the battery on the motherboard dies, the date and time might not be remembered, but the BIOS should at least have default settings.. Have you pressed the "Del" key during Startup to change BIOS settings? This is a copy of the manual for that mb..
Start on page 51 to see how to enter the BIOS and make changes. There are some explanations of different settings.

Ms 6367 ver 1 0


1) The MSI ms-6367 version 1.0 motherboard, was made especiallly for HP desktop computers.
(MicroStar International)


It is not an MSI -> O.E.M motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)
Therefore, ONLY HP would have a BIOS update for this board, and not MSI..........


2) The original Processors used were AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Maximum frequency rate, (Excuse me, 'Speed'), is 1.67GigaHertz.
(1.67GHz)
Front Side Bus frequency rate is 266MegaHertz.
(FSB = 266MHz)

You are trying to use an AMD 'Sempy' processor, that has an FSB of 333MHz.
This = No.

Why?

Because, even if you could somehow boost the FSB up to 333MHz, your ram memory would not work anymore, and your expansions slots. (i.e., PCI, AGP, etc)

(Change Voltage for processor {CPU}, or change Multiplier; in BIOS Setup utility. This would change the FSB)

Ram memory typically operates at Half of the processor's FSB.

3) I realize all you may have around is a Sempron, but let me post some facts;

A) The AMD Sempron, and the Intel Celeron are BUDGET processors. Also known as Starter processors.......
Why?

Because both have less Cache, than per se a comparable AMD Athlon XP processor, or Intel Pentium 4 processor.

(AMD Athlon XP compared to AMD Sempron;
Intel Pentium 4 compared to Intel Celeron)

What is Cache for a processor?
It is a small memory area for the Processor, and operates at the same frequency rate, ('Speed'), as the Processor.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

[Ram Memory is next, then the Harddrive.
Mechanical harddrive, or Solid State.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/computer-hard-drives-disks-channel.htm ]

A crude example if I may;

You are writing a thesis for college.
You find as you go along, that you need some additional information.
Where is it?
Down in the basement, in a box of books, last book on the bottom.
Oh, and there is NO basement light........

Down you go, flashlight in hand. Dig through the box of books, and retrieve the book you desire.
Now back up the steps, and open the book to the page you want.

OR,

You press a few keys on the computer keyboard in front of you, and have your needed info in seconds........

Less Cache = Basement scenario
More Cache = Computer scenario

I would drill a hole through that 'Sempy' processor, and make it into a necklace. (Wouldn't wear it though! lol!)

Jus sayin'.

I m having amd sempron(tm) 140 processor. does this configuration supports 500gb harddisk?


The processor is not the issue.. The mother board bios is what decides if it can handle certain HD.

You need the MB brand, Model, and BIOS version, to know for sure.. boot pc hit pause button to freeze the screen as soon as it lites up, should display bios version number. Enter to resume. Goes very quick. Power off and on before windows starts to repeat process till you get it.

It IS very likely that it will work however..
