Hi have bought a secondhand pc with this motherboard and pulled out the 1000mg AMD and putting in an AMD 1800 but I have no manual. I do not know the settings/ jumpers about what to change and how much needs changing in the bios to get this to run properly.
I am running this with XP and 3x 256 sticks of 133 ram with a 64 mg graphics card it should run ok but does not identify the CPU properly stops with the CPU showing 1000mg not the 1800 I have.
Do you have any ideas please on how get this up and running?

Hi, click on this MSI link which will open to the motherboard

You can run up to 1800 but it must be the AMD Athlon XP (Palomino, Socket A) up to 1800+

You will have to look for a board that supports S-Dram memory, because that is what your MSI K7T Turbo2 uses.
My advice would be to skip this entirely; I would replace the whole board/CPU setup, and pick up some memory. You can get an Athlon II quad core and mobo for $165.98 USD (Asus /AMD). Pick up 2 GB of Kingston DDR3 RAM for $56
Hi there. I have no idea why manufacturers still put these leads in the boards because they really don't serve much purpose. I would leave it out, but if you want to plug it in look close at the motherboard near the I/O cover (rear USB's) for a black socket with 4 pins, it should be marked CD1, that's where the lead goes.
take all accessories off the motherboad (network card, memories, etc) connect just the monitor, keyboard, and mouse. it fires up. then insert one accessory at atime and see what is keep it off. then replace it.
