Yes I have double checked the connectors. It will not reboot till I take the soundcard out. Software installation was also simple. The floppy connector is also grouped here which is where it should be to lessen the cable length required over a bottom edge placement. V-MAP chips are the same size and have the same pin compatible layout that makes this possible. I was a bit sceptical of its position at first, but, in my case at least, it seems to get the ATX connector out of the way very well seeing as though the ATX connector is the most bulky connector you’ll attach to a motherboard and also the most inflexible making a poor connector placement an extra hassle.

MSI K7T Pro2-A – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KTA Overview – CNET

Is it the same again, not quick, hard to implement etc and have MSI mai a good job with the board? Thumbs up to MSI and if they can sort out the small issues in a later revision, they can’t fail to succeed with this board. A smart move on VIA’s part indeed. What a waste in my opinion.

This is the first motherboard directly supporting USB 2. The capacitor placement fouls the ability of the retention mechanism to work well and you have to resort to poking at the lever with something in an attempt to make it budge.


Yes I have double checked the connectors. Just soudn frustrating resetting it constantly.

Only glaring bad spots should be noted and the MSI has none. Analysing the layout I always like to take a look at the layout jsi the motherboards that pass through my system.

If you do have a sound card installed, refer to its documentation to troubleshoot the problem. You have to be pushing the current memory bandwidth limits on a previous chipset to really see the difference. Media Control Devices Manufacturer: I am starting to hate this board. Lastly, as you can see, the PCB is bright red!

Almost sounds like there is something there but can not hear it clearly to verify there is sound. One of the biggest selling points of this new wave of KTA boards is the increased performance. I change the settings and and reboot and then the ATI card is reset and working. Could barely hear it. Three operating systems, Windows 98, Windows and Windows XP were installed without any problems. Software installation was also simple.

MSI K7T266 Pro2-A – motherboard – ATX – Socket A – KT266A

Windows 98, while having little testing on this motherboard, seems to be OK. The KT is almost universally regarded as quite slow, hard to make work and it’s generally unloved.


I have recently built a system and put on a K7T motherboard. Today I did notice that there was some sound coming through the speaker real faint at least I think it was sound. Sandra Memory Benchmark 9 x Sandra Memory Bandwidth Benchmark 9 x So there we have them, the numbers most people will be looking for.

Please login or register. Also still no windows sounds. So how do we find the MSI as a whole?

As far as I know this normally would not happen, but boards are fragile and such things could happen – I guess we will only know if you can get the sound to work. Under the main or master volume, click the “Advance button” and enable OR disable the “Digital Output only”. There is no conventional thermistor in the socket to measure CPU temperature. Standard floppy disk controllers PNP Service: With 3DMark testing overall CPU, memory and graphics performance and Sandra providing the synthetic numbers, we have pretty much all bases covered.

Terminal Server Keyboard Driver Manufacturer: There are also 2 fan headers near the top edge of the board, to the left and right of the DIMM slots.
