Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Need to find what motherboard used.

My need is to ascertain the motherboard used. Using limited information at hand. The number-N1996- is seen on the board. Is this the motherboard number or the chipset number perhaps? After finding out this information. A need to figure why any attempt to install and use a mouse-whether optical or ball- is not workable. I have attempted to use a mouse through the PS2 and USB options. Leading me to believe, that the board is fulty to that extent at least. Please assist me in gathering the needed knowledge to fix this. Thank you for your time.

Start your computer.
On the very-first screen (white text over a black background) will be a serial-number on the bottom-line of the display. Press the PAUSE key on your keyboard, and record this string.

Then, press ENTER, and let the computer boot.
Then, see: http://www.wimsbios.com
and match your string with the huge list of strings on that web-site, in order to identify your motherboard.

P.S. Does the mouse work on some OTHER computer????

I need motherboard drivers for msi n 1996 i need the drivers to copy onto my usb stick flash so i can get my other pc mobile i have installed new hard drive with windows xp service pack 3 i have lost the...


A lot of people have been looking for N1996 board drivers, thinking that N1996 is the model number for their MSI products, such as MSI motherboards, optical drives, VGA cards and etc.
Well, that IS NOT the model number because it is not possible that alot of products sharing the same model number, right?

Then some one on the forums mistakenly saying that N1996 is MSI FCC identifier printed on all MSI boards/optical drives/VGA cards, which is NOT TRUE as well. To know what N1996 means to your MSI products, see below for the proof:

aca.gif
According to MSI official website, A C-Tick mark (see above) may also appear on MSI products that are required to comply with Australian electromagnetic compatibility requirements and radio-communications standards. That's all, nothing else.

It signifies that the product may be legally sold in Australia. Now it requires EMC compliance must be marked with the C-tick logo and ACA supplier code number. Their ACA supplier code is N1996 and can apply to several of their motherboards. The supplier is responsible for holding a Compliance Folder that contains compliant test reports and a Declaration of Conformity.

This is more about ACA supplier code. According to ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority), Supplier Code Number means the number issued to a person by ACA or ACMA upon application for registration to use the compliance marks (A-Tick or C-Tick).

So now you know what N1996 means for MSI products. To find the MSI drivers, you need to find out the correct MSI model numbers, for example here are few of the correct MSI model numbers/codes, hope you can see the pattern here:

K9N4 Ultra-F
K8M890M2-V
G965M-FIR
NX7600GS-TD256
S300-008US
MP54GBT3


Alternatively, I would suggest you to try a driver scanning service which will identify your hardware information and then locate the most recent driver for it. One of the more accurate is Free Driver Scan. It will save you countless hour and headache and best of all, get the working driver fast. I have not personally tested this software so during install, please read the TOS (terms of service) carefully to make sure it doesn't contain adware/spyware or other kooky stuff. If you disagree with the terms, cancel the install at this point.


Another program that will help you to identify the motherboard and it's on-board hardware is Everest Home Editon. It's clean and contains NO spyware or adware.

To find make and model of pc hardware, EVEREST Home Edition is a free system diagnostics, system information program that will id most hardware onboard a mb. as well as the actual motherboard.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...-Edition.shtml

Alternate Everest download link: (offers 2 sites to dl program from)
http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...oad-16369.html

Run the program and then:

Click on Computer
Click on Summary
Right hand window (hardware) if the text is BLUE this is a link to the web site for that particular hardware.

If you have additional questions or need further help, please post a SUMMARY report from Everest.

You can`t find the driver at MSI.
You have to visit the HP site here:

Enter the full HP number or computer model.

You will have to visit the manufacturer's website to download the manual that you need. For your motherboard, the link to the website is:

Once you get to the website, look in the support or downloads section of the site for the model number of your board.and select the manual you need for download.
In the event that you cannot locate the manual, look for a "contact us" link on the website support or home page.

Pin configuration for front panel on n1996 motherboard


n1996 is NOT the model number. ALL MSI boards are labeled n1996 - it's their C-Tick number. You need to find the actual model number which should be listed on a sticker near the main CPU socket. Search for that on msi's website.
