    I requested and installed a modded bios for my 4 years old MSI 945GT Speedster A4R.

    I then installled a matching Dell OEM certificate and key (342DG-xxxx)
    Computer -> Properties said it is Activiated with Product ID: 00426-OEM-xxxxxx-xxxxx.

    Slic Tookit V3.2 said it is "validated". But on the "Valid SLP OEM String Offsets : 0" box, it said: No OEM SLP String found !

    I have been running the computer for over 2 months with no problem. I have not installed KB971033.

    Should I be worred? I found another modded bios and comes with a MSI certificate. SHould I reflash the bios with the new one? What key shoud I use as ther is no MSI OEM key out there.

    Should I just install a MSI certificate and any OEM key?

    OEM SLP string is concerned with XP activation, it has nothing to do with WIN7 activation. You are fine, no need to do anything.
