my motherboard doesn't know who her father is. can you please help me identify make.
i can not find out what type of motherboard i have. i need to find out so i can install driver.
if you run sisoft sandra....it will tell you exactly what kind of mobo you have...sandra is an excellent program
Download and install CTBIOS and let it tell you all about your bios, including the name of the manufacturer. (Don't let the German distract you. Look next to OEM and it will give you the manufacturer's name). It is a very small download and you can run it rather than save it.
Mod w/ an attitude
Went to this site and noticed they have Bios Wizard. I guess thsi is why you posted the link. This is a fine program which provides great info about the bios, but it doesn't tell you who the OEM manufacturer is where CTBIOS does.
I would like to take this opportunity to say:
I'm not yo baby daddy.
Another way to find out the make of your mboard is to use the bios itself. Go into the bios and use the Halt On command to halt on keyboard error. Save reboot and remove keyboard.
This will tell you there is an error with the keyboard......At the bottom of the screen is a long number. Write this down and search for aspects of it on www.google.com for instance boards that use the intel chipset would have ....-i810e-....-...... and so on. This can help you identify the chip, although it isn't fool-proof.
If the board is Asus then it would have Asus written somewhere - check the board, sometimes that will help.
Another way would be to mark down all your features - i.e. 5 PCI, 1 AMR, 1 AGP Pro, Socket A, 3 Dimm, 2 IDE, 2 ATA100/Raid, 1 Floppy, USB Hub, 2 USb.......(Asus A7V BTW) then look for these features on the net - I came across a site that allowed you to do this, but forget where now.
Hope I helped (or at least confused you some more )
CTBIOS and BIOS Wizard give you that long number and its a whole lot less painful to get.
