IBM would be an obvious choice, if they made the mainboard. If not, the mainboard maker would be a better choice.

There is a good mainboard identity article at

With positive identification of mainboard maker, model and revision you should be able to find the update if it exists.

Don't forget to search IBM, too:

Good Hunting,
