Note: if your motherboard has the VIA
MVP3 Super7 chipset (e.g., the Epox EP-51MVPE-M or EP-58MVP3C-M) and

software for your new hardware"
should then see the following window. Click OK if you do not want to
fine- tune the setting. You can access and change this setting later
from the Control Panel. I won't go into that here.
