Elpina boards rarely have ID markings on them that is of any use.

Post a complete description of the board and we'll see what we can find.
Include the chipset, # of ISA/PCI slots, etc...

Elpina is no motherboard manufacturer - they produce the PCB the motherboards are built of .
their biggest customer is Pcchips .

UMC8886B chipset: M915i or one of the M919 boards (4 different revisions, check the surface of the board in the corner near the keyboard connector, remove any stickers to see the Vx.x marking, no marking = oldest revision (1.2).
