well, i have a bit of a situation here.
i am helping my friend by fixing his computer.
the thing is, i had to reformat, and reinstall windows due to some problems.
the board has no identifying markings on it, other than the chipset, and the board layout.
well here is the description of the motherboard as far as i can tell....if you need more info, ask me....and i will do my best to get it or you.
it has the SIS 530 northbridge, and the SIS 5595 (AGP 8M) south bridge. it has two pci slots, onboard lan (davicom DM9102F chip), riser card for the port) riser card for the modem. 3 dimm slots, socket7, has a k62-400 in it. it is micro atx with 2 usb ports, onboard video/sound(SOUND PROmr HT8738AM/PCI)/com ports, the works.
it is ami bios, but the chip itself, has this sticker on it that says Y2K(with a thumbs up on it) and right next to that, on the same sticker, it says BURN-IN 24HR.
the thing is, i need to know the pins for the power switch, and the likes, and i need to know who made it!!!!!!
that is the big thing.
i cannot find out for the life of me.
any help would be great...because i would like to be done with this, because i have THREE more old computers lined up behind this one, and i already finished one...but want to get this one done....HARDCORE STYLE.....
thanks in advance...for any help.
oh, one more chip that might help...
there is a chip in the middle of the board...made by winbond....
dont know if that helps...but it might.
again, thanks for help....
eh, dont worry about it...
because i am sure that someone will know.
someone has to know.
this cant be the only motherboard that was made by whoever made this thing.
i just cant believe that someone would not be glad to put their name on this board...it isnt THAT bad.
i mean, it has usb, ide, 2 pci, 1 isa, onboard lan...heh...it isnt that great, but still....you would think that there is some sort of way to id this thing....so that i can download a manual, drivers, and so on...so that this thing can be DONE!!!!!
but yeah, seems like no one is on..what gives?
heh..that last post was to the one about something going on...
hehe...but i dont think that i would really want to drive a few hours just to figure out which motherboard this is.
hehe...but it would be funny...
here is what i would say:
"hello, i would like to know if you are the company who manufactured this fine motherboard...heh, hehe, hehahaha, heheheahahahahahehehahehahae.....HAhAhAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!"
got it from motherboards.org....
thanks for the idea!
hope it fits on a floppy, because as of now...this thing is not able to go on network, dialup, or any other form or transferring....the only way i would be able to get something there, for a trial and error, would be to move the hard drive to my computer.
but i dont want to deal with that.
alright, thanx crashman.
hope this works!
and that i can find who the hell made this thing!
As you might know, that chip that you described by Winbond is the clock generator for Pentium, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, AMD and Cyrix CPUs with I2C. <A HREF="http://www.winbond.com/PDF/sheet/w83194r3758.pdf" target="_new"> Windbond Preliminary W83194R-37/-58 Documentation </A>
I shall still look for the board for you...

well, i figured it out....
found this PCCHIPS motherboard id, which you put in its configuration information....and it tells you what it could be, and then you compare to a picture, and you figure out which is is.
it is the pcchips MB599LMR.
and what sucks, there is no etching of the fcc id on it.
i was looking for that, because i knew i would be able to figure it out then.
well, now i have that computer up and running...and ready to be picked up.
damn pcchips....why didnt they label the damn thing??
anyways...thanks for the help everyone! THG is great!
