could you please help me to solve a problem with my motherboard
I have a motherboard 486 AT  with Intel486/dx2 processor which have a usai (SC-9204-A 4LO8F1067) and SIS 85C206.
I have problem booting because not display  is on the screen
and no beeps heard.
I checked the power supply. It's good.
I tried to boot with the video card as the only board in the system and removed it as well.
I don't have the motherboard's manual.
Could you please guide me about the jumper position and case's conecters position.

thank you

If there is an FCC ID on the board then you can get the full manufacterers detail from the fcc website :

http://www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/ead

From there you can try to find the manufacters website

If you do not hear beeps is the speaker plugged in? Is any memory pluggeg in? Is memory in bank0? Yuo should hear beeps even without a display card. If all of above is correct, you either have a wrong jumper, or a bad processor. Is is plugged in correctly? Bad cache?

I plugged the processor and cache in  other pc and are ok.

You can experiment. 486 MBs use only 5V, so you will not damage anything, The jumper options are typically clock speed, cache size, FPU present. If you have a goo processor, good memory, and no cards pluuged in, you should hear video missing beeps. Make sure the power supply is good.

You may want to measure thr +5V on the MB. Also check that the reset switch pins are not shorted. It is quite likely that the MB is bad.
