You can't list a case as solved by quoting its one or the other...does not work that way. When you can narrow down the board directly, then you have it. Otherwise it will remain unsolved.

Sorry Hardware Junkie, the first one has two matches - Please post the pics of the boards for a comparison.........The second ID was a definate match - www.plasma-online.come listed that exact BIOS String as the PC Chips M710....

I do not know who originall post the MoboCop Case #1 but the info that I found was a match to both.

Don't worry do0d, you'll get there. I have made a few big mistakes along the road to MoboFu Master...

Essentually case #45 should look like this:
61-0701-007170-001101111-0715-M717-1440L000-H
OR
61-1027-001169-00111111-071595-440LX-1440L000-H


But the case 45 is a match with the M715. I editted the ROM file and it does show the 000715 customer code. So I have closed the case.

000715 is not in the database. So its a bit suspicious. We would need a description to solve this one.


That second string matches this (MS-6122 v1.2) found through Plasma-online via a google search.

The customer code does not match, and 440LX is missing aswell. I have already confirmed it is the M715.

Case closed. 8)

What I try to do is getting the confirmation out of more than one factor, e.g a Delhi board from an eMachine is the TriGem Delhi III.

The serial number on newer Intel boards has the first two characters of the model name (not quite for the D8nnXX series (e.g D845HV), there it's the first two after D8nn) hidden in it. (Try and figure out that one out, Toby).

If a case has more than one possible match, it can't be solved without the original poster confirming or adding more info to the case. A sole 2A59XXXX string isn't always enough (FIC has the same string for six different boards, it's the rest of the string that matters as well).
We hate rut, but we fear change.
