No, free download http://www.piriform.com/speccy

I am only suggesting the free download and in no way suggesting that you use any other product or service at the link.

Please help I'm a newbie to this forum :(

I found this thread looking for an easy way to identify my Mobo I ended up just opening the case and looking between the PCI slots anyway!

I tried (AIDA32 © 1995-2004 Tamas Miklos) but this only leads me to more questions now and no answers!

I have an antiquated sound card to begin with in this system, so I was going to see about get the the mobo sound working so I can us the PCI slot it occupies to install an internal WIFI adapter; I already own. (a hole other issue all to its-self) Yes because I'm to cheap to just buy and external adapter. And I just like to make things work when everyone says they cant or wont!

(Issue at hand)(AIDA32 © 1995-2004 Tamas Miklos) seems to think i have

Motherboard Properties:
Motherboard ID 12/23/2004-Springdale-G-6A79AM4VC-00
Motherboard Name Unknown

But between the PCI slots it shows "MS-7037"

how can i get windows 7 to recognize the correct mobo so I can use MSI's liveupdate5 to insure the newest BIOS prior to reinstall of win7?

Can post or send report file as needed! assistance very appreciated, please help! will be loyal forum user!

Your MB is from 1994 and has an AGP slot so you will most likely find that Windows 7 will not work due to not having any drivers for it.
