The Fujitsu Siemens Scaleo 600 desktop computer, uses a Gigabyte GA-8IXST-FS motherboard, (GA-8 -'eye'-XST-FS)http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/consumer/MediaCenter/Scaleo%20600/Scaleo%20600.htm
In the link above scroll down with your eyes to where it states -
To the right you will see -
Gigabyte GA-8IXST i865PE ATX Sound AC97 LAN Reader,
I would like you to Left-click right on that listing.
Give it a few seconds, and you will see the first page of a PDF motherboard manual, for your Scaleo 600 motherboard.
Let the file download all the way before looking through it. (Watch the download progress bar)
At the top of the PDF file in the header, you will see the page number box. It is to the right of the blue Down Arrow.
Page 6 shows you an illustration of the Scaleo 600 motherboard.
[Should you wish to save this PDF document to your computer.
This way you won't have to download it again, and can copy it to a CD disk for easy access any time you wish. Also allows you to delete it from your computer, and save Harddrive space.
In the top header again, look for the Floppy Disk icon.
It is the second icon from the Left.
If you hover your mouse cursor over this icon, it will briefly reveal,
"Click to save this file to your computer or another location"
Left-click on the Floppy Disk icon.
A small window will come up,
Save a copy...
At the bottom of the window is a box with - File name:
to the left of it.
In the box will be listed - Man_8isxt-fs_uk
Unless you feel like looking for Man_8isxt-fs_uk, I would suggest you do this;
Put your mouse cursor in the box right after the k in uk.
Type Fujitsu Scaleo 600 Mobo.
(Mobo stands for MOtherBOard)
Now you would go down to the bottom Right, and left-click on Save.
HOWEVER, before you do!
You need to know where this file will be saved. You can make this file go to where you wish.
At the top of the Save a copy window, is another box.
In the box is the destination of where the file will go.
If it does not state - My Documents, I would like you to do this;
Left-click on the blue down arrow to the right of the Save in: box.
Then Left-click on My Documents.
Now go below to the right, and left-click on Save]
I don't know what you are looking for, but some specifications if I may.
1) The motherboard form factor is ATX.
9.6 inches by 12 inches, or 244mm by 305mm.
(9.6 inches is approximately 9 and 9/16ths inches)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motherboard_form_factor
2) The motherboard has a Socket 478 processor socket.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478
3) The motherboard chipset is an Intel 865PE.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets
(Codename for this chipset is Springdale.
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
The motherboard chipset technology used for the Gigabyte GA-IXST-FS motherboard, uses a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.
This motherboard diagram, shows the relation of how the chips are connected,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg
(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
CPU does NOT stand for personal computer)
The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of a computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and high speed graphics.
High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, is NOT high speed graphics.
(The Northbridge chip for the Scaleo 600 motherboard, is an Intel
The Northbridge chip is connected to the Southbridge chip via the Front Side Bus. (FSB)
Think of the FSB as an 'Information highway'.
Data (Information) goes back, and forth on the FSB.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower processes of a computer.
Slower processes such as anything to do with PCI technology.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or Integrated Graphics, or any adapter card inserted into a PCI slot.
Also as you can see by the motherboard diagram,
A) IDE drives: ( Harddrive/s or optical drive/s)
B) SATA: Whether it is a SATA harddrive, or SATA optical drive, or an external SATA port.
C) USB: The USB ports
D) Ethernet: Ethernet port
E) Audio Codec: The Audio capabilities of the motherboard. Specifically integrated audio, unless there is a Sound Card installed.
(Not going to go into detail about Codec at this time, to avoid confusion)
Just some of the slower processes of the computer.
The Scaleo 600 motherboard uses an Intel ICH5 Southbridge chip.
The graphics expansion slot is an AGP 4X/8X
Can use AGP graphics cards that are AGP 4X, (No, this is antique graphics technology), or graphic cards that are AGP 8X.
The maximum TOTAL amount of ram memory is 2GB.
You can use either PC2700, or PC3200.
[PC2700 is DDR Sdram that operates at 333MegaHertz.
PC3200 is DDR Sdram that operates at 400MHz]
Should you have any questions regarding your mobo, please state in a Comment. I'll try my best to answer them.
