Need help identifying MoBo

Postby Master421 » Sat Jun 01, 2002 10:39 am

Printed on the board itself is E139761. It is a Socket7 with a pentium 166MMX installed, 4 PCI slots, 3 ISA slots, 2 DIMMS, NO SIMMS, NO visable BIOS chip. It also has a vertically mounted 256K Cache Pipeline Burst Chip.
Looks to be an Intel Chipset. They are labeled SB82371SB & SB82437VX. It has one parallel port, one serial port and 2 USB ports along with the keyboard and mouse ports. The only other thing is that I think it was taken out of an old Gateway. Not sure though.

Thanks

Just out of curiousity, when you say there are no simms, do you mean that there is absolutely no place for them, or have the sockets not been included on the board, but there is still space for them?

If so then we could be looking at a PC Chips board.

There are no SIMM sockets on this motherboard just 2 168pin DIMM sockets.

Sorry for the confusion

Alright that rules out PC Chips. Look on the surface of the motherboard for an AA XXXXX-XXX number, or PBA XXXXX-XXX number. These are Intel part numbers, most Gateway's used Intels and still had these markings.

All I can find is a couple of unsolved MoboCop cases on this board. Looks like an Intel board to me, but we're going to need a complet description of it to ID it.
Can you post any onboard components to add to the above?

Maybe we can kill 3 birds with one stone here.
