A client has a white box computer, and I'm trying to see if we can add memory to it. Without completely disassembling this computer, I can see the following in rather large type on the motherboard: "Prescott 800" and "DDR 400".

Any idea of who the manufacturer of this mb is? And, how can I determine the maximum memory configuration? Any and all help is appreciated.

Need more info.....any other markings on the board? Look on top of the parallel port or near the AGP slot for markings. Or post a pic. I'm sure the "Prescott 800" and "DDR 400" refer to the processor and memory respectively. Is this a socket 478 board? Running DDR400 I would suspect so.

Thanks!

I'm going to have to take it apart further to see anything more. Not a big problem... just time. I'll be back when I have more info.

There are some diagnostics programs that can ID all features of a PC easily. One is called Everest Ultimate Diagnostics from http://www.lavalys.com/ and the other is PC Wizard from http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php .
The Everest program has a free trial version, but some features are locked out. The PC Wizard is freeware, but the programmers would appreciate a donation.
The programs will display the mobo manufacturer, BIOS date, memory type/name and timings as well as provide links to drivers/Web sites of devices. There are even some basic memory tests in them.
