Hi guys,

This is a longshot but .. I have a few of these motherboards here and I havent got a clue what they are .. They are from dell and are intel 815 chipset, 133fsb socket 370 joobys. When i try to power it up with my c3 933 i get nothing but a blank screen .. no beeps .. nothing. If someone can help me find out what motherboard this is so i can get a dell bios update id b very greatful.

You have an OEM Intel board there and all Intel boards (genuine & OEM) are renowned for not supporting any non Intel CPU.

Well I had a hard enough job finding the pinout for the 34pin front panel connector as dell dont seem to want to tell people :( .. oh and the board is held to the case quite strangely .. not by holes and screws but little metal slides .. Its got the dell strange back io panel aswell www.lgm.org.uk/pictures/dell/

Is this board just a remake of the intel board by/for dell ? if so how can i find out what dell part/model number it is so i can go about finding a bios update

Dell boards, although nearly always Intel based, are generally very difficult to identify particularly if you don't know which Dell model they are from. Quite often they are special builds (proprietry) made especially for Dell.

Unfortunately none of the information you have supplied returns anything useful in a google search.

Dell should be able to tell you which model the boards are from using the information you have provided here however there is no gaurantee that they will be cooperative.

Looks like the Dimension 4200 system board:

Which is an OEM version of the Intel D815EEA (Easton).

BIOS must come from Dell, the rest of the stuff is there...

So, about 8 years later I am in the process of updating my Intel bios info page and can finally tell you the model number is D815EHM, still looking for a codename like Homburg or whatever, so if any of you knows, please forward that info. Thnx.
