Hello,

I just installed a 1GB DDR Type RAM into my CPU and now Windows is telling me to reenter my CPU Settings. Does anyone know how this is done and how to access the CMOS Setup on a Windows XP OS?

Thanks

Is there a message on the screen something like "press F1 to continue F2 to enter BIOS"? If not just try hitting every Function key during the boot process. Generic motherboards often use the Delete key to enter the BIOS while PC manufacturer's pick a Function key.

Once in the BIOS screen you will probably be ask to confirm that the size has changed and to hit F10 to save the changes and reboot.

Good Luck
