I see Phoenix isnt rated well for after care just pointing you at pc manufacturer. Are they connected to Award?

My boot up screen shows Phoenix Net, and chip says Phoenix on label[D686], but BIOS on later boot up screen says Award Bios Version
6 00PGN.

This area is somewhat puzzling anyway without confusion as to whether I've Phoenix or Award BIOS.
I asked my pc vendor and they say they reckon I have PC Chips with
an 830 Board. No mention on the board of PC CHIPS, or 830: however I gather this is normal but there is a AGP logo on it. :?:

Award Software now belongs to Phoenix - they bought the whole company

PCChips M830 is not possible as it uses AMI bios

Please give us your Bios-ID and we'll try to identify your Board for you

my bios

Chaintech Board
7KJD possible - looks like an AMD761/VIA 8231 chipset combination ... 3&PISNo=53

P.S. : The first AMD761/VIA8231 combo I heard of - most board use VIA 686B
