DUAL Laptop Mobo

  1. I recently acquired a DUAL laptop and I was wondering how I can determine the make and model of the motherboard. The computer model number is MVA-6690. It has an AMD 400 mhz processor and I want to see if the motherboard can take anything faster. I also want to update the BIOS. Any help?!

    Not easy to find information about this one. Dual Technologies doesn't seem to have a webpage and the laptop is quite old.

    As you have a 400 MHz CPU, and one option for this laptop was a 266 MHz Intel one, I guess the maximum multiplier is 4 (66 x 4 = 266).
