I am trying to identify 3 motherboards:

2) Award Modular Bios v4.51PG. Bios string 08/14/97-VXPro+-USB-Ultr-2A5LDH09C-00

3) Award Modular Bios v4.51PG. Bios string 11/16/1999-MVP4-696A-2A5LHF0AC-00

Any help would be appreciated and gratefully received.

Board two is a PcChips M537DMA33. (The VXPRO+ chipset is a relabeled VIA Apollo VPX chipset).

I'd like to change that statement to "Board one will take me a lot longer."

This is the best that I can wrangle out of HP:-

I'm not too sure of the value of this information, this bit in particular I found amusing:-

Memory

Sockets: 2 - 72 pin (1 free)

Size: 16 or 32 MB DIMMs

Pairs required: Yes

Hmmm, 72 pin DIMMS eh? 2 slots, 1 free and pairs required. :roll:

Who's writing this stuff the receptionist?

Thanks very much for your information regarding these two motherboards - it means I can now get my children's computers working at maximum speed. The other one is mine! :D
