I have heard of that "manufacturer" however I'm unable to locate any info regarding the boards they sold.

If the board is still running the bios string should provide a clue to the actual manufacturer of the board.

Well that interesting, MB-455/456 is on the front inner page of the motherboard manual, the version I have is the 456 because that supports 3.45 and 3 volt chips, I have an AMD 486DX4/100 in it at the moment. When I originally built this machine in 1994 I had an intel dx2/66 in it but put the 4/100 in when I discovered it would support it, info on the mobo itself. However while there is a lot of information in the manual it doesn't say who the manufacturer is or where it was made.

Bios string is: 12/20/94-UMC-498GP-2C4X6000-00

It has seven ISA slots the bottom three support EISA slots as well, memory consists of four 30 pin simm's and two 72 pin simms. It has the cpu socket over on the right bottom just above the EISA slots where the stick out above that is a 498 chip with a 496 chip to the left nearing the centre. The chipset is UMC, no special drivers appear to be available well not on the UMC web site.

My only problem with this board is the RTC is faulty and also is not Y2K aware, I have to manually insert the date every time, it reverts to 2094 on boot up.

Jonathan.

F4DXL-UC4 marking anywhere? Not that is going to help much, this manufacturer (ADI) has long gone...

for your 2094 date problem, go here:

This actually works, just remember you have to adjust it each year on the 1st (or 2nd) of january.

Thanks for all your hard work re my odd motherboard, the tip about the link to a utility to reset the date every boot works a charm, now the mobo is useful and is back in service.

Hello,

I know this is very long close topic, but i need help.
I have the same motherboard UMC-498GP-2C4X6000-00 and have the same problems, when i try to set date in bios setup for example 25/01/2015
after I reboot the date is going to 2095
I follow the link in the upper posts but they are not actual.
Can anybody help me or tell me how can fix this problem, maybe some bios updates?
I'm fan on old motherboards :)

Thank you
