Anyone? Has anyone ever had a MOBO message like this after installing new RAM?

the message is to warn you....
because you change to a new 800MHz DDR2 ram... and the default safe memory speed is currently been use... thats why you got the memory message...
if you are acomputer hardware overclocker, you may set the ram timings by yourself ... or make sure the pc is running at 800mhz.. i have ever installed 800MhZ ram and the pc run at 677MHz.. i need to force the mainboard to run 800MMhz from bios.. change the rams timings
Thanks, I thought the message might have been regarding something more serious. As I said in my first post, I ran CPU-Z and it tells me the correct frequency and timings for this new RAM(400MHZ before DDR2 and 5-5-5-12).
Should I still bother going into BIOS to make sure?
I'm just reluctant to have to go to BIOS because I'm afraid of screwing something up. I am not an overclocker as you can tell.
but sure... for 800mhz... i recommend you to acces bios and enter into the memory configuration.."user defined"
change the memory frequency or memory speed.. like 533mhz, 667mhz, 800mhz,
JUST CHANGE THAT.. can save setting....
if you use wrong memory timing.. it will damage the ram.. but well since the ram is groomed for 800 mhz.. select 800mhz and that all... it will run at 800mhz...
If I just want to see the RAM settings in BIOS, where do I look instead of USER DEFINED?
search for memory configuration tab. in the bios in all areas..
Okay, in the very MAIN tab of the BIOS it says SYSTEM MEMORY SPEED - 800MHZ. The other tabs were ADVANCED, SECURITY, POWER, BOOT, and EXIT. I immediately went to the EXIT tab and clicked on EXIT AND DISCARD CHANGES just to be sure I didnt mess anything.
Anyways, does this prove that my RAM is indeed running at 800MHZ now? Did my MOBO somehow "fix" itself from the default safe speed to 800MHZ somehow?

i can confirm your system is running under 800Mhz..
