Welcome to the forums Nedraebs.......................:D

On the first black screen you will see upon bootup there will be a string of numbers on the bottom left of the page.

Something like

2A59L-XXXX-XXX
Or
51-1506-XXXX-XXXX
Or
12/09/1999 i440LX

Write down these numbers exactly as you see them and post them here...This should lead us to the Mfg.

Your Motherboard is the Shuttle Hot-637

Bios, Manual and drivers are here.

Download the manual and see if the pics of the board match.....:D
