I installed a new motherboard in my PC a couple years ago and I’d like to install a better graphics card. The pc has been working fine but the weak link is now the graphics card. I tried to swap out the cards (pci express) and now the pc wont even post or beep or do anything but hum when I turn it on. I put the old card back in and it fires right up.
The new card could be shot…or (I found online) the motherboard might need a bios updating.
I’m trying to update the motherboard
I can’t find the manufacturer printed anywhere on the board. I installed a program on the PC that is supposed to figure this info out but it just comes back with;
Manufacturer - “to be filled by OEM”
I get the same response when I tell windows (Win 10) to give me the same info.
Someone had to make this board…I just want to get the latest bios version from them and be on my way.
What else can I do to get the actual manufacturer info?
I can’t remember where I got the thing from…I think Tiger Direct.
I couldn’t find the purchase in my account history though.
Packaging is gone too.
Also, is it possible that this is an entirely generic board and no-one wants to take credit for it?
Is there any way to update this thing if I don’t have any info on it?
Thanks in advance.
I can post pics of the board when I get home if you think it’ll help.
