VIA H Motherboard
Recently bought a new DX4-100 processor for the POS on the kitchen table. Pete: it's the one you pointed me to at CSO. Anyway, went to install it the other night and it appears that the old processor is soldered into the motherboard? I yanked on it a couple of times, but no go. Additionally, the new processor looks a wee bit larger than the 50mhz processor that's in there.
I have been all over the net and can't seem to find a listing for my particular motherboard. Some help would be appreciated. I need to know if indeed the processor is soldered in (is this normal?) and if it will take a larger processor.
Specs are below. This is the best info I can find at this point.
Bios ID String: X0-0100-001121-00101111-021993-VIA-H (Note: All the O's are zeros, I assume)
Other numbers I found are on a square chip labeled VIA VT82C470. I am assuming that this is a Soyo motherboard but can't find any info related to this particular board.
Any ideas or links?
Thanks a heap.
