Hello

I have S478 Motherboard with 2DDR slots, 3PCI, USB 1.1, 2x ATA100 in micro-ATX format. But i don't know the model of MOBO anyway. Either the manufacturer My MOBO looks pretty similar to this one HERE but mine does not have ISA slot (which Chaintech claims to be optional) and mine does not have integrated S3 Savage VGA (Chaintech says nothing if it is optional). The rest of specification is similar to this Chaintech MOBO HERE but Award BIOS ID Number is ID6LWE0C-00 and the page THIS ONE says that i have Evalue MOBO. Evalue has one S478 MOBO on its page HERE but it is equipped wit Intel NorthBridge mine is equipped with VIA NorthBridge. Anyone of You can help me identyfying my MOBO with BIOS ID ID6LWE0C-00 - BIOS dated at 202-05-11 (as far as i remember..)

Thanks in advance
Tom

Thanks Gabriel for Interest!

Neither Chaintech nor EValue have responded to my e-mails... I have read tutorial which describes guessing MOBO model by deciphering BIOS number, but ID6LWE0C-00 is kinda strange number Looks like evalue MOBO but Evalue has no S478 MOBO with VIA NB. (Even google has no idea what number "ID6LWE0C-00" means) Looks like i'm stuck here. Anyway thanks again for interest!

Tom
