AWRDACPI doesn't identify a specific motherboard it's just the OEM Table ID string in the Multiple APIC Description Table. Consequently there are a range of boards (all needing different drivers) that have that string.

Are there any identifying markings on the board itself?

If not use a utility such as Everest's free system scanner to identify the specific Motherboard, if you run the Quick Report option you should see a section on
Motherboard Properties   and from there use Motherboard ID and Motherboard Name to identify what drivers you will need.

Motherboard name is ECS nForce4-A754, which appears to be EliteGroup, but have checked numerous sites and still unable to find the appropriate drivers !

XP Drivers are here  Download all of them first then install the nVidia package followed by the audio drivers.

There's a more recent nForce download available direct from nVidia here under the Legacy Drivers section for nForce 4X but use the original manufacturer's package first.

Thanks for the info but the downloads don't work, the only ones which are downloadable by the looks of it are chipset and sound !

Those should be all you need on this board, the n4 file - labelled as chipset should install drivers for the entire board, the audio driver is only bundled separately because ECS changed the spec of the board to use an alternative chipset.  LAN is certainly included in the nForce package.

What do you see in Device Manager after installing and restarting?

Hi, havent installed them yet, but certainly need LAN and graphics drivers. Hoping the chipset does the job. Thanks.

Are you using a separate graphics card or the one built into the motherboard?
