MSI MS-7061 v1.0 Mobo - KM3M-V
« on: 21-August-07, 23:27:37 »

I believe this board to be as above, it has a adhesive label on the underside as
with MS-7061K0502906039 and on the parallel port connector 001109CE0E38
as well as a barcode beside the system fan header as with 5120832735

So far as the manual states how to set the FSB to 100, 133 and 166 (200 N/A),
this is facilitated by two three-pin jumper blocks SW1 and SW2

The truth table is as follows;

         SW1     SW2
100    not shown
133    2-3      1-2
166    1-2      1-2 

However, when I set the board to 133 as above and apply the power - bad smell consistent with
heated RAM DIMMS occur - eeek..! I figure the FSB settings are incorrect.

Between the Northbridge and the AGP slot there is a silk screen decal which details
how to set the FSB only it refers to a FS0 and FS1. I figure the FS0 corresponds to
SW1 and FS1 to SW2

By way of comparison, the silk screen decal has a truth table thus;
 
         FS0     FS1
100    2-3     2-3
133    1-2     2-3
166    1-2     1-2 

The problem is the silk screen decal setting's for 133 do not correspond to mapped
equivalents SW1 and SW2. By my reckoning; if the manual is correct then FS0 equates
to SW2 and FS1 equates to SW1.

Of course, if the silk screen is correct and maps to the former equivalents, then I
do  know which FSB is being synthesised and in fact, suspect, FSB 200MHz
would be the case (the jumper opposites of 133 per SW1 and SW2) which this board
does not support - doh!!!

If I have fried the DIMM - less than impressed - double doh!!! - MSI will get the or
a bill in due course.

Let me know your thoughts and observations on this, if you can of course.

It could of course be the board is malfunctioning. I will try the 166 FSB option
(1-2 and 1-2) as this is a failsafe you could not get wrong. It so happens I
possess an Athlon XP 2600+ 526/166 also.

I will let you know what happens!

Thanks for your input in advance

I wouldn't mess with the pins and jumpers on-board. Set them back to where they were - as in factory defaults -, reseat the processor well, and do the messing in BIOS instead. This is in fact a good board that very rarely have problems.
Please note that FSB 100 is effectively FSB20, 133 -> 266, etc.

Fair Comment.

I have in fact traced at least one motherboard fault.
This lies with a Dual FET driver package, namely a NIKO-SEM P07D03LV.
see http://www.tranzistoare.ro/datasheets2/36/369034_1.pdf

I have visually inspected the package and found the surface pitted.

This pitting is consistent with package burnout and is entirely consistent
with one of the FET drivers in the package having gone to meet its maker
in the sky!

Further research has detailed a similar failure with this device on a MSI
board and how, perhaps this device is used to set the RAM or AGP specification.
Note !!! - albeit in French - I'll get back to you with the translsation later.
see - http://www.nokytech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=85432

In attempt to factor in the genesis of the fault in the first instance, so far
as I contend the possibilty of RAM setup type to 200MHz is not possible
on this board but can be configured by jumper, it may be the root cause
of the device failure. Note even so, this is presently not a certainty.

So far as the package has generally application in the DC-DC, power
management and disconnect switches at least that is, according to an
equivalent - its a starting point for a failure hypothesis.
see http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/34758/ZETEX/ZXMD63N03X.html

The smell/odour as noted was probably the epoxy package of the device frying and/or a nearby
reservoir capacitor getting its electrolyte cooked. The cap after power off was warm to touch.

Any comments/insight greatly appreciated
