Is a HP Pavilion MCP73M01H1 (Napa) the same as a Foxconn M7PMX-S?

I have an HP Pavilion P6055D desktop PC. It has a Foxconn Motherboard. however the model number given is MCP73M01H1 (Napa).

This is not a standard Foxconn model number. however, I suspect that it is (or is close to) a standard Foxconn Mobo.

This motherboard has 4 x SATA drive support connectors, and supports Intel core 2 Quad CPU.

It has NVIDIA nForce 630i Chipset and on-board GeForce 7100 graphics

Research suggests that it is (or is close to) M7PMX-S.

Can anyone confirm that this is the case. If so, can I use the Foxconn Bios on this MOBO to Activate RAID.

Oh wow. Why would the lady say such an ignorant thing with such conviction. This is just nonsense as we all know companies outsource all the time, precisely Retail driven, close to the end user companies like HP and Dell. PRODUCING is not the same as contracting out a set of mobos like the gentlemen correctly suspected of being the same as a foxconn model. I happen to have an HP with a foxconn mobo (and to the guru lady, it seems to also have Nvidia's signature, so really, what you see here, is Nvidia provides tech, Foxconn manpower and efficiency, and HP sales and marketing and the product sells, but suggesting HP which cant get to the phone to keep up support go out and actually manufacture their own mobos is the stuff of laziness).

To the gentleman asking, I have looked at the specs and your analysis seems to be right on. Here's another exact HP product (the one I own, given another HP special foxconn mobo name given the sheer volume of business these folks generate to foxconn. It does seem to get often confusing though and if I were you, and you seem to be quite familiar with hardware and the such, if you were to attempt a flash, make sure to backup first, that is the only harm you will cause to your computer, if you are not cautious even when you're certain. Here's the link to which I mentioned so many times:

I know this is resurrecting an old problem, but I'm going to share my experience. I have a Compaq SR5450F which uses the same motherboard as the mentioned HP Pavilion P6055D.

The motherboard in the HP and Compaq is model MCP73M01, and as you say it is made by Foxconn. The Foxconn M7PMX-S, is model MCP73M05. The main difference between the two models is that one has two PCI Express x1 slots and one PCI, while the other has two PCI and one PCI Express x1 slot, otherwise they are basically identical.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I flashed the Foxconn BIOS to my Compaq. It works perfectly, and includes all the features of the Foxconn motherboard including RAID support.

Here is the REAL deal. Foxconn does manufacture mobos for HP. The Napa board found in my a6514f is VERY similar to the Foxconn board you mentioned. The board is a custom job exclusively for HP, but is based on the aforementioned Foxconn brand board. I won't get into the details of why they do it. More importantly, you are probably looking for drivers. If my experience tells me anything, you probably want to install XP but can only find the Vista and 7 drivers. If this is the case, then go to the nvidia website and download the mobo and graphics drivers based on the CHIPSET. The chipset is BIOS independent, meaning the chipset and OS could not care less about the BIOS. The BIOS only reports whats going on hardware wise to the OS so it can manage it. To put it another way... regardless of who manufactured the mobo, you can go to the CHIPSET mfg's website and get the drivers for ALL supported OS's not just the ones that HP or some other mfg is willing to support.
Go to the support section. The search feature is very intuitive and should lead you to exactly what you are looking for. In your case, searching by chipset. You will find what you seek.
To other people with who are having similar issues with ANY brand of mobo, the same applies. Get your specs. Find out what chipset(s) and video you have, basically all the "built in" stuff. Then, go to the chipset mfg's website and do a search there.
Note: Sometimes a chipset mfg is the same as the mobo mfg. For example, Intel has it's own line of chipsets for the mobos they mfg.

Dear sir,

Welcome to fixya support.

HP mother boards are not Foxconn Mother boards they may have the same standard or chipset. HP is manufactures motherboard exclusively for their HP/Compaq brand,they may use printed circuits of other mother board manufacturer. So you cant update bios received from foxconn. You can download BIOS from HP web site by giving your pc model number.Unauthorised or other then manufacturer bios may cause system malfunctioning or may system become unstable.So solution is if you want bios for HP motherboard download it from their website only.

good luck

Where is the slot to instal LAN card on MCP73M01H1 (Napa) motherboard in a HPa6710t

Integrated means it is a chip on the board. No slots or cards. If you have an additional card it would go on a PCI slot, and the antenna plugs into the card.

1) KJ387AA#ABA comes up as an HP Pavilion a6403w desktop computer,

2) Uses the Foxconn MCP73M01H1 motherboard,

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, observe the aluminum finned heatsink in the middle of the board, with Foxconn on it.
(Northbridge chip is under heatsink)

The long black slot below it is where a graphics card goes.
(Video card or Graphics card, same/same)
It is a PCI-Express x16 slot. A PCI Express graphics card goes here.

(The Locking Arm on the PCI Express x16 slot, looks as though you press down on it, to unlock. You don't. Gently pull up a little to install or remove a graphics/video card)

The white long PCI slot at the bottom can also be used for a graphics/video card.

If there is no video/graphics card in either of these expansion slots, you are using Integrated Graphics. The graphics from the motherboard, and not a graphics (Video) card.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

This is from an Nvidia GeForce 7100 graphics chipset.;_ylt=A0PDoX_vQ1dQoRMA1FGJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?

(Sits under that aluminum heatsink with Foxconn on it)

If you are using the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard, you have a VGA monitor plugged into the blue VGA port, number 4,

(Scroll down to Back I/O Ports)

or you have a flat LCD screen monitor plugged into the white DVI port, number 16.

That board (HP/Foxconn Napa) uses the nvidia GeForce7100/nforce630i chipsets. Many on-line PC parts & supply stores allow you to preform advanced searches. If you can search by chipset then you sould be able to locate a similar mobo.

I bought a 500 watt power supply

depends on the connector , most newer power supplies have a detachable 4-pin stuck to the side of the 20-pin making it 24. use the whole 24-pin plug if it fits , if you only have a 20 pin connector on the motherbaord, detache the 4-pin from the 24-pin making it 20.

I bought hp desktop a6610in. they gave me vista. now i installed xp sp2. i need motherboard driver for intel 945

Normally the best place to get drivers is from the manufacturer's website. However, HP does not support downgrading this model to XP and thus does not have drivers available on their website.

Read first:)

You can try to get generic drivers from the original manufacturer of the motherboard chipset. The problem is in identifying the correct drivers for your model. According to the product specifications from HP, your motherboard should be a Foxconn MCP73M01H1. The HP designation for this board is Napa-GL8E. If that holds true, the following drivers should work for you:

nVidia Chipset:

(in particular, verify that this chipset driver installs the SM Bus and Ethernet drivers for your system before continuing)

nVidia Graphics Driver:

Realtek HD Audio:
Other drivers will depend on the extra hardware installed (modem, card reader, etc.). Also, as this board uses High Definition Audio you may have to install the Microsoft UAA definitions before the sound card in order to get the sound to work.

Best to save all downloads to a folder (C:drivers) before trying to install. Please comment on your results.
