Carl, I took a flashlight and looked at every inch of the MB but could not find
a name. (Maybe that's not a surprise??) The only thing I see that might be a
name is "Imperial GV20030812."

e-Machines tech support opens in a little over an hour (9 a.m. US eastern) so
I'll give them a call and let you know what they tell me about the MB
manufactuer and model number.

Thanks! :o)
