This is the bios information I have, I am currently trying to track down any source for an update to this bios.

BIOS Date: 08/25/99
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID: 08/25/1999-MVP3-596-W887-2A5LEPAC-00
Chipset: VIA Apollo VP3 rev. 4

The computer itself is a custom build machine, which uses a AMDK6-2 CPU.

Any information on the manufacturer if there is one would be welcome.

Now that you've discovered the BIOS ID string, go to and select the AWARD Numbers section and find out whom the "PA" vendor code belongs to.
