Who makes the motherboards for OEMs?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've always wondered.
Who makes the motherboards for OEMs like Dell and Acer, and how can I contact them?

Should have a model number on the board, you can look that up, or look up the model of the PC itself.

Foxconn does a lot of them though I think.

I don't actually have a production-build I can get into.
The geniuses at Packard Bell put solder over the screws to the back panel of this thing.

Foxconn has made a number of Dell motherboards in the past. I also know that Asus has made HP/Compaq motherboards.

It's probably not by accident. I know Compaq used to solder cpus into the motherboard, so that they couldn't ever be upgraded. They figure it'll generate more sales since you have no room to upgrade.

They seem to only make server boards.

They make desktop boards for OEM too. I worked there as an FAE last 09

TYAN provides desktop boards to ZT systems also.
