how to determine exact model of mobo?

by frankzxcv / June 3, 2004 5:44 AM PDT


I have a soyo mobo here, it's either a 6BA+ or a 6BA+III --- says 6BA+ on the board itself but it acts like a 6BA+III (runs a 600 PIII chip).

BIOS is 6BA+2CA6

need to get drivers, BIOS upgrade, etc. any suggestions as to what it is? thanks - fj

I end up downloading the manual for each possible model and compare the manuals. Clues include connector placement, number of PCI slots and memory sticks...
