I opened my Pc but was not able to find the information you asked.
Are there other options to find out.

Might be written onto the motherboard between the PCI Slots - please have a closer look

Revision number might be of interest if there's any - DFI usually uses A,B,C etc as Revision indicator

Look at the picture !!
-> Model number is printed onto the board next to the AGP connector

Please have a closer look at anything what's printed onto the mainboard and not onto the chips

It seems this board was used in OEM-systems (Yakumo and others) so there might be a sticker covering the model number

I found only one of it.


P2Xbl REV C

The motherboard shown on the picture is identical ( let's say the look of it)

Do you have all information for now, if not can you point out on the picture where I can find the AGP connector.

thanx's Murpje

I tried to start up from a floppy disk and to start the program.
I succeeded in that. What to do next ?
