I have been looking for a manual for this motherboard GA-586ATM/P for a long time. I have been to Giga-Byte's site and didn't find any manual/s. I hope somebody here can help me. Thank you in advance for your time.[Pay It Forward][/quote]

This one is hard-to get. I have a feeling that I have jumper settings somewhere @home.

Looks like the ATE, ATE/P, ATM, ATM/P use similar, if not identical settings.

Note: these are only FSB + multiplier settings.

Thank you for the info, however that info is printed on the board. I want the manual for information that isn't on the board, suchas is the bios flashable and which to use. I have 2 of these boards, one works fine(I'm using it now) and the other one was flashed wrong by the previous owner causing him to buy a new computer and give it to me. Also would like to know if these m/b's can go beyond a 166Mhz cpu and many other board related questions. Thanks again for your time.

The BIOS is flashable. The latest BIOS is
05/08/98-i430FX-2A59CG0PC-00
Intel 430FX PCI-ISA BIOS for Pentium(R) Processor Ver.3.33
at http://ftp.gigabyte.com.tw/support/temp/586atm_333.zip

I think that the board can do Pentium CPUs up to 200MHz (non-MMX). If there are 4 SIMM memory slots, maximum memory is 128MB.

Thank you for the info. They have 6 simm sockets. I will give the flash bios link a try. I am concerned that it might not be the right one though. So here's the information I have about it. I'm not sure of O's or zero's.
BIOS ID: 2A59CGOPC
BIOS Date: 02/02/96
BIOS SIGON: 02/02/96-i430FX-2A59CGOPC-OO
BIOS TYPE: AWARD MODULAR BIOS v4.50PG
SUPER I/O: UMC/ITE 8669 rev 0 Found at port 108h
CHIPSET: INTEL TRITON 430FX rev2
OEM SIGON: INTEL 430FX PCI-ISA BIOS for Pentium Processor ver.3.26
I hope this is enough.

The manual name is 'GA-586ATE/ATM user's manual', couldn't find it as a pdf.
The above link didn't work. I found it on: http://php.zdnet.de/treiber/interstitia ... atm333.zip
