Hi and thanks for your time ...
I am trying to find out what the brand and model number of my motherboard is so that I can obtain a Motherboard Manual for it.
All the information I have is below - I have been unable to find any identification on the actual motherboard itself.
OBTAINED ON BOOTUP:
03/23/98 - i430TX,ALI 513X - 2A59IJ1ZC - 00
Award Modular BIOS V.4.51PG
V.5TXC_2 B01 - 03-23-98
MARKINGS ON MOTHERBOARD:
Award or possible C E ? - no real identifying markings on it so it's obviously generic ...
If anyone could be of any help or could point me in the right direction of where to find it I would very much appreciate it ...

See if you can't find something at http://www.j-mark.com/dl/dl.html for it. It seems to be a Jetway as explained at http://www.ping.be/bios/numbers.shtml Possibly the 5TXC_2 string is in relation to the model.

mmmmmmmm, I thought because of the:
that it was a:
2A59I Intel Triton TX chipset (Socket 7 based m/b)
Maybe I am wrong ???

Yes, and the J1 is Jetway. The 5TXC is the model.
Go to http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/download/index.htm and in the Socket 7 section is a model 5TXC. Click on that and you will find the manual and a bios update. Just make sure and verify the board with the manual before flashing the bios.

I took a peek at JMark's site, and it seems like this might also be their TX98 board (as opposed to the J-5TXC), because of the B01 at the end of the 5TXC string. You might want to download that manual too and take a look at the layout...

Just ran across http://ic.doma.kiev.ua/bios/rom/system/jetway.htm
B01 must be the bios revision. They have a C01 available for download on the page listed.

Hi I am trying to find a manual for an Elpina model E-VO motherboard. I have searched all the links you have. Found one link that said elpina was bought by Ability Electron, but can find nothing on them either. If any one has info it would really help. Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for a manual for a J-656VXB ver:2 motherboard (by jetway). Jetway only has the J-656VXB ver:3 documented, but these jumpersettings do not correspond with my mainboard.

Don't mean to impose guy's. Digits 6-7 in the ID string identifies the Mobo Mfg. As in j1= jetway. I found a complete list at www.pltd.com/pcuser/BIOS/motherboard.htm [phoenix technologies] while trying to find an upgrade for Award Bios. Phoenix bought out Award so it seems. Award has tech support at it's website and you can e-mail them from there for Flash Upgrade help with your ID string #. They recommend it!! Good Luck. Bert J.

Do we ALL have the same problems with motherboard
identification? ------How do we get the mobo manufacturers to put thier names& board numbers on thier boards? Most dont even have FCC#'s.---I know that some of them DO NOT want anyone knowing who built such trash to sell to the public--but the good companys should be proud of thier products. Having vented my rath--- I feel MUCH better now!

Does anyone know the name of the manufactuer for TOPGUN motherboards? I have one with no FCC#'s on it. The only # I can find is on the backside of the board. It is L-9743-8 ML-1 94V-0.If any could please help I need to get pin settings so that I can change the CPU. THANKS.

Never heard of Topgun at all. Can you boot it at all to get the BIOS string? You can dig around with the #'s and letters in that string. maybe it will get you somewhere. You never know. You don't say anything about the board? Just a shot in the dark, is it a PII with a LX chipset? Any board details?

I am trying to upgrade my CPU on an old Packard Bell,it currently has a 75MHZ. I am trying to put a 133 in it. Is this possible? If so, how do I get my computer to recognize it and are there any kind of jumpers I need to change? It is a PB570 mobo according to a picture I found. Any help would be appreciated. I am having no luck on this.
