Hello.
How do I find the motherboard make and model? I have looked in Device Manager and I ran dxdiag. There are many things listed and I don't know what they are. Is it called something else on this computer maybe?
I just got this laptop yesterday and I want to do a proper signature for efficient question posting.
Also, is this the proper place for this question? :unsure:
Thank you if you can help.

Since it's a laptop...you can just go to the website of the manufacturer and look up the specs/drivers, etc. for that particular model sold by the manufacturer.

Or use Google to obtain same/similar info, with the key being the manufacturer and system model.

Thank you for your replies. Is 'mainboard' the same as motherboard?

Thanks for the help. I mostly used the info from Speccy because it let me copy and paste. Please, if you feel like it, take a look at my signature. Is it helpful, stupid, ridiculous...? Does it look reasonably correct? I want to make sure I'm as helpful as possible when posting my clueless questions. Thanks again.

I have to ask...just why are you concerned with what motherboard is installed?
