Northgate switch settings

I need motherboard dipswitch settings for an old Northgate 386.  Northgate doesn't seem to be in business anymore, and I haven't found system board switch settings anywhere else on the web.  Can anybody help?  I really don't want to pitch this system, but this is eating up way too much time.

We can probably help you.  But we need more info.   Give us the exact model name of the MB, the chipset type, number of 8 / 16 / special-memory slots, number and location of the SIMM sockets. Is there i/o on the mb, like serial/parr./video?   And even the size if possible.

I have about 6 or 7 Northgate 386 mainboards information here.  We need to find out which exactly is yours.

The m/b is marked "386 AT Page Mode".  It uses an AWARD chipset (386 Modular BIOS ver 3.03 is displayed at startup, along with Northgate SM386 ver 2.10).  There is one 8-bit slot, five 16-bit slots, and 2 longer slots.  All the memory is dram, with 512k on the m/b.  There is one parallel and 2 serial connecions built into the m/b (no video).  The m/b has three banks of 4 dipswitches and six jumpers.
