I need a bit of help to track down the manual for an ECS P6BXT-A+ revision 1.3B motherboard (slot 1 or socket 370 P11, P111 or celery).

There is no problem with it, at the mo it's happily running a celery 370 533MHz , I'd just like to have the manual and if poss drivers and BIOS for large disks. I've had a fossick around the internet and the Elite site but they don't list this particular board in their archives, whats worse a manaul supposedly for a P6BX-A+ (thinking it may be similar) turned out to be for a totally different model.

It's revision 3 though but the type is right.

Thanks Goddie,

had just downloaded one from here (http://www.ecsusa.com/downloads/manual_p6b.html) and was about to post, but grabed your link anyway because it was listed as a larger file, they're both the same though, about as close as I'm going to get I think. Managed to find an updated BIOS too, but no drivers at all.

How'd you find the board on the Taiwan site? I drew a blank there, could only get (sans T) P6BX-A+ 1.1.

Anyway, the wee darling is running Mepis Linux (3.4-2 RC1, for the freaks) on 194MB of ram and a 9.4GB HDD and doing it very nicely. The odd thing is, the info I could find on the board, only had it running a celeron 400MHz CPU, but it's spinning along with a 533MHz (http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Celeron/Intel-Celeron%20533%20-%20FV80524RX533128%20(FV524RX533%20128).html) at 8x 66HHz, not that I would want to overclock it, of course :rolleyes:, right, I'll get me coat.

I just used a wonderful site you might like to bookmark, it took all of 15 seconds to locate the manual and confirm a live download link. http://www.google.co.nz (http://www.google.co.nz/)

Basta.. umm, I mean good man. :thumbs:

I tried the Taiwanese ECS site forst, then, I must have been used goggle this time around, instead of the other one, because all the links were dead ends. Finally went in through links via DriverGuide.com, to the USA which strangely linked to completely diff looking web pages than the what I had checked out previously and, which linked back to the Taiwan site for downloads. Maybe I should have looked at the Support page, and maybe I shouldna given up so soon, but hey, appreciate your 15 seconds :blush:
