I want to know if anyone out there knows who manufactures the motherboards
for the Medion Composer 5200. I need to know if the motherboard is nvidia SLI
compatible before I purchase a new graphics card, Medion's tech support
didn't help. To anyone who respondes: Thank you! (This is related to Windows
Xp my compter is running XP home edition) System: Medion Composer 5200 with
128MB FX 5200 Nvidia Graphics Card, 7in1 media reader, and a 200GB Seagate
harddrive.

SLI is relatively new and unless your computer was bought for that purpose or
the motherboard was bought by you for that purpose you don't have SLI. An SLI
board allows two video cards of the same type to work together in tandem and
SLI boards need certified video cards as well as PSU's.

Hi Andross,
when your computer starts up freeze whats on the screen by pressing the
scroll lock key. If you do this quickly enough you should see a long number
at the top of the screen near the bios version info. Write down the number
because it can be unique to the model of motherboard then go here

If you are lucky you will be able to identify your motherboard manufacturer
and the chipset manufacturer. Unfortunately some bios manufacturers do do
this but if you have an AMI or Award bios you should get an answer. Good
hunting
