well somebody will probably mention they don't want to see pictures posted (provide a link too them)

anyway , that board is not on the website (they only show the newer models)

onboard graphics would probably be the chip with the heatsink on it in front of the CPU ...sound would be to right a bit ...look for "crystal" or "AC 97" on one of the chip.

I wouldn't go near them unless you KNOW what you are doing ...these are surface mount chips and most of these boards are 3 layered (meaning traces are sandwiched in the middle where you can't get at them)

sorry no more help here :>

This looks like a Micro ATX "small footprint" board. The lady that brought the system box to me tried VERY hard to unplug the monitor signals lead, and later realised two thumbscrews needed unscrewing first ! ...so I had to have board out (no model no. on underside either !!!!, and tackle the thing with a soldering iron - one side I couldn't get at - so at best it's a temporary hardware botch up.

The Chaintech site is RUBBISH and can only deliver 1 or 2 kbps at best, so there's next to no hope of me "perusing" the manuals on the site.
http://www.chaintech.com.tw:8008/support/manuals.htm

This is a Socket 370 board with a Celeron-A 500mhz on it / 128mb L2? cache, 2 x 32mb, 168pin, 66mhz, SDRAM.

The b****y model no. is not on the board / or anywhere else, and there is no sign of a sound chip, yet the thing has onboard graphics and sound, which has got me tearing my hair out, because there are so many models - and seemingly no hope of identifying the thing on the Chaintech site.
And WHERE are the sound and graphics chips - I damned if I can see'em ? There's next to no clue on the numbers on the ic's.

Any help muchly appreciated.

Help identifying a Chaintech mobo...

Post by RJK » Thu, 16 Dec 2004 08:16:42

I spent 3/4 of an hour tweaking my Dreamweaver upload settings and then gave
up ! ..I intended uploading'em to my currently unused website but, then gave
up. Most people in here have their OE set to ignore posts over a certain
size anyway, but, thanx anyway. Since going adsl, I can't seem to upload
anything - ...made the necessary changes in my Dreamweaver settings. ...can
only spend so long getting nowhere !

Since posting, I tried almost all the sound drivers from Chaintech - the
Denmark link delivered at around 50kbps - the sound drivers that worked were
Avance - the mobo/miniport bridge etc. and graphics drivers were 2 x i810
d'loads from Intel, and the modem was an "Agere"

All working fine, just slapped in the Feb. 2004 W98 Security update cd :-)
... all is luverly. Should all be okay so long as she treats her VGA socket
with care.

regards, Richard
