Being 1985 I'd expect it'd be an XT clone - 8088 with 256KB to 640KB of RAM - but it could be anything.
There were a lot of clone PC machines made in the mid 1980's, and many just using parts mass produced in Taiwan.

If you can take some photos inside of it, we may be able to help more. If we recognize the motherboard we may even be able to point you to a page with more information.

DTK TURBO was a common board used in various clones (I have quite a few machines of different brandings with the same board)
http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/motherboard ... O-640.html

I can't make out the chip numbers, but I'd expect:

8088 CPU @ 8Mhz
640KB RAM
Graphics - looks like it has options to switch between Mono and Color - MDA/CGA combo?
Hard drive looks like an ST225 or ST238R?

I see you have a card with a RTC chip on it - the right utility and a new battery and it'll remember the time.

Thats right.
Hard drive is ST238R and color is yellow/black.And math processor is motherboard (i think),because CAD is installed to HDD.
But mouse doesn't work.Genious is that name for 3 buttons.
And where i found this graphics card info/manual?.Jumpers is so much.
Thanks very much repair project beginner :D
