Hardware Setup
Central Processing Unit: CPU
The mainboard supports Intel® Pentium 4 Prescott processor. The mainboard
uses a CPU socket called LGA775. When you are installing the CPU, make sure to
install the cooler to prevent overheating. If you do not have the CPU cooler,
contact your dealer to purchase and install them before turning on the computer.
MSI Reminds You...
Overheating
Overheating will seriously damage the CPU and system, always make
sure the cooling fan can work properly to protect the CPU from
overheating.
Replacing the CPU
While replacing the CPU, always turn off the ATX power supply or
unplug the power supply’s power cord from grounded outlet first to
ensure the safety of CPU.

CPU & Cooler Installation
When you are installing the CPU, make sure the CPU has a cooler attached on the top to prevent overheating. If you do not have the cooler, contact
your dealer to purchase and install them before turning on the computer. Meanwhile,
do not forget to apply some silicon heat transfer compound on CPU before installing
the heat sink/cooler fan for better heat dispersion.
Follow the steps below to install the CPU & cooler correctly. Wrong installation
will cause the damage of your CPU & mainboard.
1. The CPU has a land side cover on the
bottom to protect the CPU contact from
damage. Rotate it to make the pin 1
indicator (yellow triangle) in the rightbottom corner.
2. Take out the accompanying CPU Clip
and rotate it for the same direction
as the CPU (Pin 1 indicator, the red
triangle is in the left-bottom corner).
land side cover
3. Align the 3 points (the Pin 1 indicator
and the two alignment keys) of both
the CPU and the CPU Clip, and use your
4 fingers to push the CPU Clip down to
clip them (the CPU clip is up and the
CPU is down) together.
4. The land side cover now is
removed.
MSI Reminds You...
1. Confirm if your CPU cooler is firmly installed before turning on your
system.
2. Do not touch the CPU socket pins to avoid damaging.
3. The availability of the CPU land side cover depends on your CPU
packing.
2-4
Hardware Setup
5. The CPU has a plastic cap on it to
protect the contact from damage.
Before you have installed the CPU,
always cover it to protect the socket
pin.
6. Remove the cap from lever hinge side
(as the arrow shows).
7. The pins of socket reveal. Then lift
up the load lever.
8. Lift the load lever up and open the
load plate.
9. Correctly align the red triangle of
CPU clip with the CPU chamfer, the
red arrow with the left-side socket
edge, and the red spot to the hook
of the socket.
10. Put the whole module onto the CPU
socket.
2-5
MS-7058 ATX Mainboard
11. Push down the CPU hardly to install
the CPU into the socket housing
frame.
12. Visually inspect if the CPU is seated
well into the socket, then remove the
CPU Clip with 2 fingers. Then cover
the load plate onto the package.
13. Press down the load lever lightly
onto the load plate, and then secure the lever with the hook under
retention tab.
14. Align the holes on the mainboard with
the cooler. Push down the cooler until
its four clips get wedged into the holes
of the mainboard.
15. Press the four hooks down to fasten the cooler. Then rotate the locking switch (refer to the correct direction marked on it) to lock the
hooks.
16. Turn over the mainboard to confirm
that the clip-ends are correctly
inserted.

switch
MSI Reminds You...
1. Check the information in PC Health Status of H/W Monitor in BIOS
(refer to p.3-20 for details) for the CPU temperature.
2. Whenever CPU is not installed, always protect your CPU socket pin
with the plastic cap covered (shown in Figure 1) to avoid damaging.
3. Please note that the mating/unmating durability of the CPU is 20 cycles.
Therefore we suggest you do not plug/unplug the CPU too often.

Hardware Setup
Memory
The mainboard provides 2 slots for 184-pin DDR1 DIMM (Double In-Line Memory
Module) modules which supports the memory size up to 2GB.
Introduction to DDR SDRAM
DDR1 SDRAM is similar to conventional SDRAM, but doubles the rate by
transferring data twice per cycle. It uses 2.5 volts, and requires 184-pin DIMM modules.
2-7
MS-7058 ATX Mainboard
Memory Module Population Rules
Install at least one DIMM module on the slots. Each DIMM slot supports up to a
maximum size of 1GB. Users can install either single- or double-sided modules to
meet their own needs. While using dual-channel DDR function, it is available for you
to install memory modules with different sizes, which will run in “asymmetric mode”.
However, it is strongly recommended that you install same-size memory modules for
better performance, which runs in “interleaved mode”.
Please refer to the following table for the available memory populations.
Other combination may cause damage to your mainboard.

PNP/PCI Configurations
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system and PnP (Plug & Play) feature.
PCI, or Peripheral Component Interconnect, is a system which allows I/O devices to
operate at speeds nearing the speed the CPU itself uses when communicating with
its special components. This section covers some very technical items and it is
strongly recommended that only experienced users should make any changes to the
default settings.
Clear ESCD
The ESCD (Extended System Configuration Data) NVRAM (Non-volatile Random Access Memory) is where the BIOS stores resource information for both PNP and nonPNP devices in a bit string format. When the item is set to [Yes], the system will reset
ESCD NVRAM right after the system is booted up and then set the setting of the item

BIOS Setup
PCI Slot1 IRQ, PCI Slot2 IRQ, PCI Slot3 IRQ
These items specify the IRQ line for each PCI slot. Setting options: [3], [4], [5], [7], [9],
[10], [11], [12], [14], [15], [Auto]. Selecting [Auto] allows BIOS to automatically determine the IRQ line for each PCI slot.
IRQ Resource Setup
Press <Enter> and the following sub-menu appears.
IRQ 3/4/5/7/9/10/11/14/15
These items specify the bus where the specified IRQ line is used.
The settings determine if AMIBIOS should remove an IRQ from the pool of available
IRQs passed to devices that are configurable by the system BIOS. The available IRQ
pool is determined by reading the ESCD NVRAM. If more IRQs must be removed from
the IRQ pool, the end user can use these settings to reserve the IRQ by assigning an
[Reserved] setting to it. Onboard I/O is configured by AMIBIOS. All IRQs used by
onboard I/O are configured as [Available]. If all IRQs are set to [Reserved], and IRQ
14/15 are allocated to the onboard PCI IDE, IRQ 9 will still be available for PCI and PnP
devices. Available settings: [Reserved] and [Available].
DMA Resource Setup
Press <Enter> and the following sub-menu appears.
DMA Channel 0/1/3/5/6/7
These items specify the bus that the system DMA (Direct Memory Access) channel is
used.
The settings determine if AMIBIOS should remove a DMA from the available DMAs
passed to devices that are configurable by the system BIOS. The available DMA pool
is determined by reading the ESCD NVRAM. If more DMAs must be removed from the
pool, the end user can reserve the DMA by assigning [Reserved] setting to it.

H/W Monitor
This section shows the status of your CPU, fan, overall system status, etc. Monitor
function is available only if there is hardware monitoring mechanism onboard.
CPU Fan Failure Warning
When enabled, the system will automatically monitor the CPU fan during boot-up. If it
detects that the CPU fan is not rotating, the system will show an error message on
the screen and halt the boot-up process. The function is built with CPU fan power
connector (CPUFAN2) only and enables you to protect the CPU from possible
overheating problem. If you don’t connect the CPU fan to the CPU fan power connector,
we recommend disabling this feature. Setting options: [Enabled], [Disabled].
CPU Smart Fan Target Temp Select
When the current temperature of the CPU fan reaches the value you specify here,
the CPU fan will speed up for cooling down to avoid the CPU damage; on the contrary,
if the CPU fan current temperature is lower than the specified value, the CPU fan will
slow down its speed to keep the temperature stable.
PC Health Status
Press <Enter> and the following sub-menu appears.
CPU/System Temperature, CPU/NB FAN Speed, Vcore, +3.3 V, +5.0 V, +12.0V,

MS-7058 ATX Mainboard
Spread Spectrum
When the motherboard’s clock generator pulses, the extreme values (spikes) of the
pulses creates EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The Spread Spectrum function
reduces the EMI generated by modulating the pulses so that the spikes of the pulses
are reduced to flatter curves. If you do not have any EMI problem, leave the setting at
[Disabled] for optimal system stability and performance. But if you are plagued by EMI,
activate the Spread Spectrum for EMI reduction. Remember to disable Spread Spectrum if you are overclocking because even a slight jitter can introduce a temporary
boost in clock speed which may just cause your overclocked processor to lock up.
Options: [Disabled], [Enabled].
