Here is you other thread. I think goonerbill is right. Can you have a look at motherboard model again, should have model number near the middle. The nearest I can get is the K7N2 Delta.

What MSI have sent you is the manufacturers code numbers for their RAM modules. MSI MoBos can be choosey which RAM is installed but link below is usually OK. What make and size RAM modules do you have. Have a look in the manual and check what Jumpers there are for 166 FSB and set accordingly. On mine(K7N2G-L) jumper10 has pins 1&2 shorted and Jumper 11 has both pins shorted for 166 = 333. BIOS is set BY Hardware. Try putting single stick in slot 1 nearest the CPU and boot to see what the POST screen tells you. See if it shows DDR clock speed of 333, if so try second stick in slot 3. Have to go out now but post back.

I have had 2 emails from you confirming K7N2 DELTA L MoBo and 3 x 256Mgb DANELEC RAM. It would be better to keep this within the forum. My local PC shop sells the MoBo & RAM you have. You say it is recognised and running well, does that apply to your XP2800+ CPU too. Is your system up and running now?.
