I have an ATX motherboard,A-PLUS written on box "AP-969" socket 370 that will support Celerons and P3's.
Question: who made this and what is their Web address if any for support eg, for manuals bios upgrades ect.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thats an OEM by PCPARTNER you will have to figure out what chipset is on it and use their drivers, E.G. Intel, VIA. As far as bios updates go http://www.pcpartner.com/ heres a link but without a little more info such as an exact model number or bios string....?

Here is a little clue to check, does the board use SDRAM or DDR or Rambus....Socket 370 DDR would be a VIA APOLLO PRO266, PC133 SDRAM could be an Intel 810 or 815 chipset or a VIA APOLLO PRO

Here is the bios ID string

I checked your bios string and didn't have any luck as far as bios updates but it would appear it is a VIA chipset you can download a program called ctbios and run it to decipher which company is the parent (could be a HSINGTEC PCCHIPS KNOCKOFF)from http://www.motherboards.org/moboidtools.html?filter=biosid

Thanks a Lot.
