You have a few ways of knowing what is "in" your computer as far as hardware.

One: click start then run. type "msinfo32" ( without the quotes )

You will see something like: System Name
System Manufacturer
System Model

One of those, namely system model, will usually have the motherboard number next to it.

The tried and true way would be to open the side cover and look at the motherboard with a flashlight or some other light source. You will be looking for the model number of the motherboard. This is usually screen printed on the board and may say something like "MS-6123" or "P5A" or something similar.

These are model numbers of motherboards and can be used to figure out just "who" manufactured the motherboard in your computer.

If you can find either of these, it is very possible that we may be able to find it and point you to how to go about figuring out the manufacturer.

You may also want to type that number into Google and see what you get back. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Hope this helps,

You can use two programs that will help you. Everest Home Edition or Belarc Advisor. These will give you more information that you really never wanted to know. They are both FREE.
