I think your mainboard maker is gone but you can TRY to locate the maker by following the motherboard ID article at:

If you can't find a BIOS update to support 40GB HDD then the simplest, surest way to get large HDD support is to get an ATA/66 card - it will support HDDs up to 128 GB. DMA/33, ATA/100 and ATA/133 will all work equally well - just get the lowest cost card you can find and use it. ATA/66 and higher cards are a lot faster than the fastest IDE HDDs available; DMA/33 is plenty fast for most of them.

Good Hunting,
Henry
