I have just got hold of what I believe is an Amax AB-PT5 motherboard, but of course didnt get a manual with it ;-)  It is a socket 7 motherboard with 4 SIMM sockets, Triton FX chipset and a small bank of switches, a little like some of the Intel boards but the switch casing is blue.
Can anyone tell me the jumper/switch settings for the board?

That board is actually manufactured by Abit.

www.abit.com.tw 

I was unable to get there earlier, however it may have been temporarily down.

Hope this helps,
Craig

The board doesnt seem to be listed by Abit as ever having been manufactured by them.  However Isnogud appears to have answered the question in Q.10068971 - hopefully I should get the board set up later today using the settings suggested to see whether it runs okay.

Now that I (theoretically at least) have some settings for the baord, I shall try it this evening and post the BIOS string (assuming that the board works of course).

The board works!
The BIOS ID sting is 2A59CA1DC-C8, which makes it an Abit AB-PT5 R2 board.  The date of the BIOS (04/18/96) also means that (according to the Award site) it is even Y2K compliant!
