Yes, I get into the CMOS-Setup, but in there I cannot change the values
for memory and when I switch the power on the BIOS only tests the first
640Kb of memory ...

I put the board into a modern AT-Box - there's no turbo button or

The clock on the board shows 24Mhz, so I assume the the CPU works at
12Mhz. I don't have the board right here and I cannot remember what chip
set is used.

There's a web-site mentioning the board, but the link to some manuals is a
dead link :-(((
