A friend of mine recently gave me an old motherboard. I cannot identify it coz there's no display connector on it even if the display controller is onboard (Cirrus Logic GD5430). So I cannot read the BIOS Id at boot.

Can someone help me ?

I can give you the numbers written onto the chips and some more specs :
1 adaptec AIC 7870P SCSI Controler
2 socket 5 CPU connectors
8 SIMM connectors
2 PCI, 5 EISA and 1 PCI/EISA slots

The chips embedded are Intel 82434NX and Intel 82433NX
On whar I think is the BIOS chip is, is written
"AMI 9549QAA
6721-502
intel© 94
620368-001"

there ar two more chips : 82374EB and 82375EB which, i think, are the EISA Bridge.

There is a connector that I donnot recognize, it looks like a SDRam slot but it's not as wide, just like a simm connector. It seems to be the display, keyboard, parallel and serial connector like on an ATX board.

That's all i can identify on the board.

Thanks a lot byu advance.

Numbers on chips are quite meaningless.
Aren't there any stickers or silkscreened stuff on the board or on the leftmost Slot?

It's hard to find support for a NX based board.

I did'nt take care of stickers bnefore.
There are 3 :
PBA 630958-303 B
AA 633932-303 B
K79125686 (with a barcode on it)

All three are directly on the board...
But I've already searched with google for those refs.
If someone have the doc for this board, it would be wonderful !!!

Thanks
