I have MSI KT3 Ultra motherboard and AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz on it. Somethig seems to be wrong in Bios settings: at startup screen flashes 1050mhz rating instead 1400mhz !!! Does anybody know the right Bios settings for my Cpu. If someone asks, I donĀ“t remember current Bios version(I wrote this from different computer) All I know that it is the latest available version.

Second problem is on WindowsME. I got error message: The PCI board was not found. Is this error message caused by wrong Bios settings too? However, every PCI-card seems to work properly.

Ok......it read 1050MHz cuz thats what its running at......

a Multiplier of 10.5 is what the chip uses and the FSB is set at 100MHz (100 x 10.5 = 1050) so switch it from 100 to 133MHz and ur all set..

as for the PCI Board error message.....format ur computer...get rid of that crappy OS and DL a version of MS Windows XP Pro. Corporate edition.........

That "PCI board" is the type of weird error that some system devices show when you haven't loaded all the chipset drivers. With VIA it can be a crapshoot. As for what the last guy said, well, ME is a little slower and less stable than 98SE, but has more features. XP is a pig of an OS, if 98SE was your typical family sedan XP would be an army tank.
