Reboot your machine. On the first screen it displays is the BIOS ID String in the bottom left corner (Press Pause if it disappears too quickly to write down, then any key to un-pause)

Then look at the following -

hmmmpp..
not sure. anyway, im on cafe right now cant be sure with my computer.

anyway i think you can look at it through directx.
usually c:\progra~1\directx

run the direct if there's a motherboard info there.
or on control panel, settings, systems

see the devises - there should be a onboard info there. post back if can check that tomorrow

Your manufacturer is Chaplet. Your BIOS is made by Award.

Use a search engine if you need to find more information about BIOS. I used http://www.flazh.de/bios/english/id.htm to get the above info.

apreed said my motherboard's brand is Chaplet.But I checked with aida32 which is suggested by centerv,It say the brand is Chaintech 6VIA5(T) / FIC FA33
Which One is correct?

apreedCommented:
It's your call. From the BIOS ID, you manufacturer code is C5 which I found to be Chaplet. If something else says it's Chaintech, then fair enough.

Seeing as you have the Chaintech model number too, then maybe going for that suggestion is better? The only way to find out for sure is by opening your computer case...

apreed is correct here
>>>>The only way to find out for sure is by opening your computer case...

For whatever reason, aida32 is giving you a choice of 2 boards
so you must have some kind of hybrid or wrong bios or....
the FA33 is a board made by FIC
