Is there a site or app that will give me information on the motherboard in a home-built computer I inherited?
 
I have tried dxdiag and CPUID CPU-Z and other similar programs and all I get is something like "To be filled in by system manufacturer" where the MB info should be.
 
 
I am looking specifically for the make and model.
 
Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestion. If necessary I will move the desk that is preventing easy access to the box and do that.

If several utilities don't return useful results, physical inspection would be the best next step IMO.

Looks like it's come down to that. It seems like all the apps I've found are just rebranded dxdiag anyway.

 

Thanks again!

Since you don't mention which other tools you've experimented with, my normal suggestions would be Speccy, SIW and for a one-off, the trial of AIDA64 Extreme (was Everest Ultimate):
