Unidentified MB...

Postby AmEv » Sat Jun 20, 2009 5:47 pm

I have been trying to identify this MB. A few close encounters, but no real luck.

The identifying factors:
tannish-orangeish color
Orange heatsink on chipset saying "T-Bird Amd k7"
SIS 730s chipset (under heatsink)
"rev. 3.0" in bottom corner

Unfortunaltely, I am not able to get to POST.

Welcome to Motherboards.org!
May be similar to what is described in this link. If the processor mounts in a long slot, then it may be the version. There also was a version that used the AMD "A" socket type, similar to the Socket 370 but pinned differently. This WIKI link describes most of the CPU socket/slot types.
AMD had several lines of older processor types.. the Duron, Athlon and Thunderbird. The "K-7" line was the next advance from the Socket 7 version, or "K-6". Intel had the Slot 1 SECC type CPU mount, and AMD had the Slot A SECC type CPU mount, a mirrored version. No, they are not interchangeable! But about the best speed from that older mobo may be around 1 Ghz.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!

It is Socket 462.

Amd Althlon 1.2ghz

Got just MB. No case.

To Copper:
Nada. Only FCC approval stamp above, and CE approval and checkmark in between.

It sounds like a board out of the M810xxx series released by PCChips/ECS. All and any info is here:
http://radel.inet.net.nz/m810lmr.html

I suspect the capacitors have gone, several models of this board were made using cr*ppy caps. http://www.badcaps.net to identify if they are indeed bad and what to do about it (in this case recapping will cost more than a replacement board).
We hate rut, but we fear change.

...nope...

That ain't it. The floppy and IDE connectors are all in line. Not tall, but the other way.
However, that IS the heatsink, so we're getting somewhere :)

*I stand/sit corrected. Downloaded the manual you suggested, and it is a 100% match, down to the last jumper switch. :oops:
