The MS-6278 motherboard is also referred to with the model code "MSI 865PE Neo2-FIS2R," and is manufactured by Micro-Star International, also known as MSI. The board offers support for socket 478 CPUs, such as the Intel Pentium 4 or Celeron processor series, and allows up to 4 gigabytes (GB) of DDR RAM. The motherboard uses a version of AMI BIOS, from American Megatrends Incorporated and used by a number of motherboard manufacturers. As well as providing an interface for the BIOS settings, the BIOS also features a standalone boot menu to allow quick selection of an alternative boot device.
- Skill level:
Power on the computer, or restart the computer if it's already running, to enable you to enter the BIOS which can only be done at boot time.
Press "F11" if you want to temporarily change the boot device to boot from a CD rather than the hard drive, for example. Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow keys to highlight a device, and then press "Enter" to select the device.
Press the "Del" key at boot time to enter the BIOS. Use the "Up" and "Down" arrow keys to navigate, the "+" and "-" keys to change values and the "Enter" key to enter submenus.
Press "F10" to save your changes and exit the BIOS.
Tips and warnings
- Install the "MSI Core Center" utility from the motherboard CD to view and edit certain BIOS settings from within Windows. System fan speeds, for example, can be changed in real time.
