Hi everyone,

Hoping someone here can help. I'm trying to dig up the front panel connector
assignments for a "PWA-Hendrix" motherboard. The original Compaq part number
was 010697-101. It has since been replaced (or was replaced) with another
type of motherboard, HP part number is 174535-001. Please note that this HP
part number, I'm relatively certain, does *not* refer to the original
Hendrix board used in this PC.

I've managed to establish that the board came out of a Compaq DeskPro EPor
EC series, or possibly an EVO. I cannot find any technical specs that show
the front panel header pin assignments, anywhere. I've already checked
through most of the service docs for the EP and EC series . . . nada. Or at
least, nothing that relates to this particular board (e.g. the technical
service manual has pinouts for the front panel, but nothing that even
vaguely relates to the labelling on the board).

The front panel header is labelled "J37" on this board, right next to J40
which is labelled "SCSI Led". The board has 4 PCI slots, no ISA, 2 DIMM, and
is a socket 370. I'm guessing it's going to turn out to be a PCChips or a
MSI board, relabelled for HP . . . . but which one?

Anyone give me a clue as to who made the Hendrix board? And the model
number? Or the pin assignments? I would be very grateful for any help.

THAT IS A MITAC MADE MOTHERBOARD. MADE FOR COMPAQ. VARIOUS MODELS
CAME WITH THE MOTHERBOARD AND ARE VARIOUS MODELS OF THE SAME. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE "POSIBLE DRIVERS" FROM COMPAQ. NOW HP SITE. THE MAIN DIFFERENCES ARE THE CHIPSET. CHECK IF INTEL 82810 OR 82810E.
THE 81810 SUPPORTS UP TO 100 BUS / MEANS IT CAN USE UP TO 750 OR MORE SPEED CPUS. THE 82810E IS CAPABLE OF 100 AND 133 BUS / MEAN CAN USE CPUS UP TO 866 OR A BIT MORE. BUT DEPENDS OF THE BIOS. USUALLY THE CHIPSETS I HAVE SEE ONLY SUPPRT UP TO 512K SDRAM MEMORY. IN THAT BOARD ARE TO BE TWO 256 SDRAM CHIPS. MOST CASES MUS BE DOUBLE SIDED CHIP MEMORY / 8 CHIPS PER SIDE. CAN CHECK IS HAVE ONE SINGLE 512K 16 CHIPS DOUBLE SIDED SDRAM MEMORY USING ONLY ONE RAM SLOT. THE DOWN IS ONLY FOR ANY FURTHER CONTAC ABOUT IT AND I MAY INCLUDE LATEST LINKS I HAD FOUND. I GET THIS KING OF OLD BOARDS TO MAKE THEM TO WORK FOR NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. OR JUST PEOPLE WITH NONE ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER. WILL INCLUDE LINKS IF EMAIL ME A NOTE ABOUT.

My apologies for being soooo late on this thread. I also repair old PC's and donate them to special groups. I'm coming upon a few of these boards. I'm not having much luck with updating BIOS. Any good links for the Hendrix boards?
