My (Athlon based) PC provides this string every time I run a BIOS check (like BIOS Wizard), but I have yet to identify a board or BIOS manfuacturer. I've seen questions about this same ID in various boards across the Web, but never an answer. MoboCop refuses the recognise it as an ID, and I haven't succeeded in creating a new case for it there.

I'd like to upgrade the BIOS, but don't know what to look for. Any hints?
:?

I am unable to come up with a match for that BIOS string. Please provide a complete and detailed description of the motherboard.

Please include any names/number printed on the board (including any stickers).

Hi, and thanks for offering to assist.
The motherboard is currently running this machine, so I'll have to get back to you later with those details - although my recollection is that there is no logo, no printed/painted labels. Would there be any other sorts of clues which might be of use? Can you point me to a list of descriptors that would be relevant?

thanks again

If all else fails and you have access to a digital camera send me a pic of the board.

Okay - I'm going offline to open up the box and have a look. Back in five or ten - hopefully.

Back again - with a sketch. Can I post an attachment here somehow - a Word document? I've drawn a layout diagram and labeled it. That's as close to a camera as I'm gonna get for a few days.

JAMA MA-AV363B whic is some sort of relabeled ECS board, if you remove the type number sticker, the original type number will show up, for which we might be able to find a manual. Bioses have to come from JAMA.

Aha!
That explains why, when I searched on Jama Motherboard in Google, it pointed to Elitegroup Computer Systems, with this remark:
These search terms have been highlighted: motherboard
These terms only appear in links pointing to this page: jama

They didn't list anything that looked relevant, but of course theboard is >3 years old.

There's still a mystery in that JAMA doesn't appear on lists of manufacturers that I've looked at.

So, I'll peel off the little sticker that'd between two of the PCI sockets, and see what's underneath. Will post it here with further info.

thanks again
