An motherboard impossible to identify...

Postby GregAdam » Tue Aug 13, 2002 5:43 am

Hallo,
how can a motherboard be identified ?? I've typed all numbers that I've found on the board into an internet search engine, but there were always zero results. I have no manual, no description of the board, and I can't make it run either, because the processor that I have, fits into the socket, but doesn't work. All I know is that the board has a Socket 7, so it's surely a Pentium I board. The processor is an Intel 100 MHz.
Thanks for help in advance,
Greg.

Well how about giving us those numbers to work with then, all you've given us is that it's a socket 7 board.

I've typed all numbers that I've found on the board into an internet search engine........I have no manual, no description of the board


If you've been able to find numbers on the board surely that means that you have physical access to it so why can't you describe it to us?

Geesh, give us something to work with man, we're not magicians or mind readers you know.

Hi,
wow, to tell the truth, I didn't expect such a quick answer from the forum! :D
I can send you a more detailed description of the motherboard only when I'm back home (i.e. in about 3 hours), because I'm at work right now and don't have all the numbers at hand.
Ah, I've just remembered there is "Compaq" written in a couple of places on the board and that it has the graphics card, sound card and some more things on board... but that didn't help in my search.
Thanks,
Greg.

Well in about three hours from now I'll be sleeping but if it's a Compaq board then it's Hardware junkie you need and he should be lurking about here by then.

hmm....lets see. there seems to be at least two otions here.

1.) the motherboard is a proprietory design. Out of a desktop PC / minitower ( older presario series or other product lines {i.e. deskpro, etc.} ) - unidentifiable

OR

2.) the motherboard is out of a newer Presario and uses a standard design. Identifiable - OEM Mitac 5114vu (Camaro).

Mitac 5114vu:

Hi,
I'm sure the board on the picture is not what I have, I only hope that the point 1 in the above text is false too...:)
I've got the numbers that are written on the board:
Graphics Chip: S3 Trio 64V+
Sound Chip: ESS Audio Drive ES1888F
COM1, COM2, 2 USB ports, PS2 Keyboard and Mouse ports.
PCIset chips: Intel SB82437VX, L6524089 and Intel SB82371SB, L7021779
Another chip: SMC FDC37C931PM, A9642-A5561-AIC, 6T89135-5
Model: MD5-5610BD
S/N: TB72127006
Another number on the board: PWA-MD5-5610/5611 BD, 316690500101-R00, GX B-V0, 94V-0, 9705

That's all I have, I hope you can do something with this data.
Thanks,
Greg.

I am assuming you dont have the case that this board came out of? If you do indeed have the case PLEASE post the make/model of the computer. (i.e. Presario 4710).

This would be as a sample picture:

If you notice the backplane configuration....If yours is setup anything similar to this it is a proprietory motherboard.. :roll:
