I'm check their mail server via DNS records for gensw.com and the
result is negative.
No mail server registred for this domain. This is realy bad. Seems to
be thier company are closed for contacts via email.

Global crysis must be to eat the GENERAL SOFTWARE.

I'm try to boot linux on this motherboard. But currently without any success.

Myles, Ron thanks for ideas and datasheet for WINBOND W83627HG

I'm checked (with Multimeter turned on resistance meter) the circuits
beetwen COM1 DB-9 coonnectors and PINS number 53 and 54 (Serial Input
& Output for COM/UART A) on the W83627HG.
The reuslt is my COM1 is connected to W83627HG:
DB-9 pin 2 to W83627HG pin 53 - 9kOm
DB-9 pin 3 to W83627HG pin 54 - tester not indicate Resistance, but
i'm not shure that must be.

Motherboard doesn't have any PCI slot for POST card.

How do you thinks - it's possible to do something?
