I have a computer that needed a new hard drive and OS reloaded. My problem is that the owner doesn't have any driver disks any more or if they ever did. Any way is there a way to tell from the motherboard what kind of a mother board it is. I.e. where would numbers be on the board? or on the chips?

It does have a gold AMD K7 T-Bird heat sink in the middle of the board.
Here is the follow info that I do know for a fact.
BIOS American Megatrends Inc.
DRAM 100MHz
CPU - Duran AMD K7 700MHz
CPU - core voltage 1.616v
CPU - Ratio 7x

What I need is the driver for the SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter which is intergate on the board, as well as the PCI Mulitmedia Audio Device

I have found several but they don't work. As it keeps asking me for a disk when it is loading. Most have been in the form of zip files. sl118 sl117 etc.

thanks in advance for any help

Firstly, you're gonna' have to look for the actual manfacturer & model designation on the motherboard/PCB itself, alternatively you could d/l a third party software program like Everest etc. which will help you determine the motherboards origin/chipset.

Armed with that information head to the manufacturer's website & search for the drivers you need.

BTW the boards make and manufacturer details are often located between the PCI slots
