Hello, I am new to these forums and have a question about my motherboard. My family has a computer that we bought from a good friend of ours a few years ago (maybe 3 or 4 years). We are thinking about upgrading its video card, the RAM and getting a new processor.
Video card: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.60 GHz
I have a few friends that know more about computers than me so I asked them to throw a few suggestions my way. I found the video card, I know that I have to know what kind of motherboard I have to find RAM that will work with it. The only problem is, I can't find the motherboard. I looked under Device Manager and looked at the Computer category and I assumed whatever was under it was my motherboard. I go to newegg.com and type in: ACPI Uniprocessor PC and it didn't come up with anything.
The main thing I want to know is this: can you find what kind of motherboard you have by using some diagnostics program or do you have to open the PC to find it?
