Was given a previously working Mobo to replace my bad Compaq one. They are the same form factor so it is a drop in.
Am posting this because the Mobo docs were lost. Am trying to determine what the start connectors are because while the front panel connector is printed on the board (2 rows of 12 pins with 3 missing pins) there is no list of start and other functions.
The Mobo has an Award BIOS so was told that can use it to trace the Mfr and other info. On the bottom ISA connector is a label with Award 1998 PCI/PNP586 146680663 and another label with S/N:M990113475. The upper left area has FI (in a squashed circle) 4-V-0 and 0299 (in rectangle).
Used Wimsbiosbut my Award numbers do not match the format.
The Catch 22 is that the correct Award numbers come from the BIOS screen "The AMI or Award BIOS id appears at the bottom of your screen after power on, during memory count up. The PAUSE key should work at that point, allowing you to write down the BIOS number, the BIOS date, and the version. You must copy it exactly." which I am unable until determine the start connectors.
Would be Very Interested in any suggestions.
