That's the motherboard model number.
Has there been an automatic update of your BIOS since installing the
high speed.....could be a reason why you are seeing a new splash screen.

Look in the documentation for your unit to see what key(s) to press
before Windows starts booting to enter the BIOS setup. It's usually a
key like F2 or the Esc key or a combination of keys; some systems BIOS's
can only be accessed with a setup disk.

Off the top of my head.....could be "Administrator rights" issue, check
the "Users Accounts" in "Control Panel". Can't remember offhand if there
is also an "Advanced Users Profiles Properties" in XP as there is in
Vista......hmmmm, come to think of it, why is an XP question being asked
in a Vista hardware newsgroup? <grin>
