    Seeing how your manufacturer is out of business, you may be out of luck. It'd probably be best to buy a new motherboard with the processor already on it.

    I can't really say but you might try the driver boards like www.driverguide.com if you are really attached to the board. There are discussion groups as well as driver searches-I think they have bios there too. Also just asking jeeves your model number can bring up interesting results if you have a bit of time and patience for this sort of thing.

    The 440 LX chipset was fairly common. You shouldn't have too much trouble. I can't read the German, though!
