  BIOS-Info, c't/Andreas Stiller, 10/97

 Computer ID           : FC, Type : AT
 BIOS Date             : 04/25/00
 Award BIOS found      : Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
 Award ID-String       : 04/25/2000-i810-6A69MM49C-00


This is what I get when running ctbios.  Can anyone tell me what motherboard this is?  Most motherboards I have seen lately have the model number on the boot up screen.
This one does not.  It is a refurb computer that I purchased from ubid.  I did not receive the drivers cd
I will probably get it one day but would like to set it up before then.  

it has a ADI soundmax AC97 sound card
a smartlink HARM56xxx arm modem  (I think it should be amr)

Thanks

Joe P.

6A69M M4

M4 indicates MicroStar (MSI)

6A69M should ID the chipset, but I cant find it.  It might be too new a board to be in the BIOS databases (I have no idea how often they are updated).

However, MSI claim that you can use this info to ID the board http://www.msi.com.tw/support/bios/mainboard.htm

Hope this helps!

Der! i810 is the chipset (Intel 810).  What I meant to say is that 6A69M should ID the model.

Possibly...?

If you need some more help, can you let me know which chip format (Slot 1, Socket 370 etc)?

Oh yes the cpu is a Celeron 633MHz I am not sure if the socket is a slot 1 or socket 370 but I think it is compatable with both?  I don't know much about slot 1 or socket 370

A Slot 1 chip sit up perpendicular to the motherboard, whereas a Socket 370 sits flat against the board.


N1996 is a revision number, not a model number, so it applies to several boards.

How abut this one?

I have an i-810 machine it is a Micro-ATX form factor multimedia box.  Everything is built in to the motherboard without any expansion slots.  Only way to expand is to use USB.  YOu can upgrade memory, Hard drives and such, but mine only has one IDE channel.  Is it an i-Book system?  My Bios is very similar on an AMPTRON system.  
My suggestion is to go to www.amptron.com and look at their systems.  I think it is an i-810 from amptron or similar.  If you need the graphics driver it is best to get the latest from www.intel.com.  Can you describe what you bought?

While it may or may not be the board you have a lot of the drivers are out on the site that d hall posted.  If it is the system I think it is all of the drivers, sound,LAN, graphics,modem are available from Amptrons site.  It seems to be down now.  That is a bit unusual, as normally they have very good support.

to D. Hall  Thanks for the info.  No that one is not it
mine has a socket mounted on the board  socket 370 I guess
I think I can find all the drivers with the info you gave
me. Thanks a lot to you Otta and pbessman. I am sure it is a Microstar as it looks very much like the pictures of other boards on the MSI page.

Knowing it is socket 370 narrows it down.

Do a search for "MSI Microstar socket 370 810 review" somewhere like yahoo and you should get a couple of dozen reviews of boards.  Give them all a quick look and see if you can ID it from the pictures.

Good luck!
