Help identification and manual

Postby GMC » Sun Jan 31, 2010 11:28 am

Hello, i have one old motherboard which i want to use but i don't know how to hook up everything, specially how to boot it. I keep it right now on top of the table so i don't know how to power up because i don't know where are PWR pins on this mother board...

So any manual / diagram is more than needed.

I will show you pictures of it so you can identify it and maybe help me

61h2569 is more important and it makes this an IBM OEM motherboard from the PC300GL series.

I have a similar 300 GL tower model, the #6287 (62875AU mobo) version. This is the version with a Slot 1 setup for a Pentium III up to 600 Mhz. Should have drivers around somewhere for it, if needed.

Tnx for your replay.

I read documentation from previous link, but i still don't know how to pwr up this mother board. I don't have any tower for it, so it is on table and i would like somehow to simulate PWR button on those 8-pin front panel - but how?

If you have a Via chipset on that board, then my Intel driver set would not work.. and the connections for the FP would be different. The Via 4-in-1 driver set is available readily, which would cover most models. Via 4-in-1 drivers:

Look on page 290 of that PDF file evasive linked to. That would be model 6565/6566. If you find a small socket in front of the power connector with 8 pins, that would be the front-panel controls (noted as #6 on the previous page diagram). Perhaps the pins have the same functions as on another similar mobo model. The extreme right pair would be for the hard drive activity LED, the next pair to the left would be the power LED. The two pins on the extreme left would be the power on connection. Use the blade of a small screwdriver to momentarily bridge the two pins on the left (about 1 second). The mobo should power up, and allow going into the BIOS. The BIOS should auto-detect all settings and features except for time/date. If the BIOS pages do not automatically start, press the 'F1' key repeatedly on powering up.
To shut down the system, bridge those two left pins for longer than 5 seconds.
