    Have a friend/has a comp that Everest(Aida32) IDd the mobo as Asus ME-99VM/Mes-VM. Well we finally figured it out, ME-99VM is one kind of mobo, and Mes-VM is another kind of mobo, and Everest is seeing his mobo as either/or. Does anyone know what the diff between the two is?, it has a 500mgh Intel Celeron(IDd by Everest) in it now, and he was wanting to see what he could upgrade that to. Thanks for any help.

    Asus makes it tough to find any info on the mobo on their website. I did find this though, Mobo Archive. It's this weird web book you download & run to see the info. Can't do much with that mobo. I'm not sure how high the socket 370 celerons go. Is this a custom built or manufactured PC?

    Right on about that site, takes a rocket scientist to navigate. Yea, I had went to their archieve, but did not want to download both mobo manuals if they are the same. It is a custom built. Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.

    If your motherboard is originally from a brand name system, ie HP, then its specially made for them and won't be on the ASUS website.

    You could also crack open the case and see if the model numbe is printed on the motherboard itself, authentic ASUS boards always have it printed on teh board.

    Thanks for the reply, and info Triple6, I think I`ll just tell friend to do just that, open her up, make sure it`s authentic ASUS, and get the model # off the mobo itself.
