help needed for m/board drivers

  sunny staines 19:57 21 Apr 2006

I have been given a TINY computer AMD 1.1 Processor. American megatrends bios, the only serial number on the motherboard is "MS8308EP [266]"

Any one with a link to get the drivers please. I tried the AMI site but could not see this ref number.

This is the specification:

It has an SIS chipset.

The AMI website will be used for Bios updates.

The mobo appears to be made by MicroStar, a marque which Tiny and similar manufacturers used a lot.

thanks for the link that has identified the board. Do you know where I can get the drivers for the board or will they be on windows xp when i load it.

[I am transferring the board,processor,ram from this computer to update an older pc I use]

Getting confused a little I downloaded the sis740 graphics chipset drivers. Am I right this would cover chipset as well as the graphics.

onboard 10/100 mbs fast ethernet lan what driver should I download for the matsonic motherboard?

Any offers of help please.
