I am helping a friend with her HP Pav. 6350, which is produced in 1997/98 period. It is an AMD K6-2 333MHz system. The power supply on it has gone out, and after checking with the stores, I was told that I have to use a specific HP power supply with that computer, and that is $125 in itself. I thought it would be easier and cheaper to just get another case with a power supply and install the mobo into it, that which some stores owners are not too sure that I can do.

Ok, on with the quest. I looked all over the net, and even emailed HP with specs and settings on everything. Nothing heard. There is nothing on the mobo to indicate who made it, what model it is, and so on. Nothing. Any brilliant people out there to lend a hand?

If you go to the bookmarks section of this site and then go to bios and motherboards you will find the site wims bios. There it will give you instructions on how to identify your motherboard through it's bios id string. After that you can download any drivers, manuals or jumper diagrams you may need.

Thanks for the tip Floyd. Been there, done that, seen it all. I tried to get the bios string off of the board, and guess what? It was not just the board at all. A new power supply in a new case did the same thing: NOTHING.

In other words, the board was fried before it got to me. Yay.

For those who are trying to identify the motherboard, and know that it is working, go to and check it out.

the HP Pavilion has no Bios ID string or model number. Its Bios is a Phoenix BIOS.And is no longer supported by eather Phoenix or HP..
Upgrade is only possible if you can find someone who can come up with new code for the Bios. And NEW parts are not avalible..
The Motherboard is made by the old HP company. You wont find a model number.
