From the BIOS String you have a MicroStar MS-6178L/M Mainboard. There's no documantation on the Microstar Homepage about that "M/L" Version, but there's a CPU Support list for the MS-6178:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.msi.com.tw/program/support/cpu_support/cpu/spt_cpu_detail.php?UID=116&NAME=MS-6178" TARGET=_blank>http://www.msi.com.tw/program/support/cpu_support/cpu/spt_cpu_detail.php?UID=116&NAME=MS-6178</A> <P>I don't know how accurate this is fot YOUR version...<P>I guess that all Celerons with 66Mhz will work OK. Maybe also 100 Mhz ones. If theer's a Blue Label with a "C" on the mainboard, then also "Coppermine" CPUs with 100Mhz FSB will work.

These boards are under OEM licenses and are mostly bios adapted to the FSC needs.<P>Here you will find a bios update for you're system. <A HREF="http://fsc-pc.de/support/softwareassist_e.asp" TARGET=_blank>http://fsc-pc.de/support/softwareassist_e.asp</A> just type 6178 and the first thing that you see will be the update itself. <P>BTW it is a 810 chipset, it will support at least 800Mhz P!!!<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Juggernaut:<BR><B>From the BIOS String you have a MicroStar MS-6178L/M Mainboard.
