Finding out what motherboard is in my desktop PC

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Thanks to all who answered my question and the help.I downloaded Belarc
program and it is fantastic in letting me know about my PC, but I do not see
anything that says motherboard in the definitions. Is there another name that
you call a motherboard. Thanks again, I am really overwhelmed when it comes
to the tech part of my PC. Please give me a reference to a word as to what it
is called. I had this PC built from the ground up and my friend that built it
is in the trashy sand wars, GOD BLESS HIM. Thanks again and I promise I will
not bother you all again if I find the name of my motherboard.JJ

    On the right hand side of the first page, mine shows a table called "Main
    Circuit Board". That is Belarc speak for motherboard.

    There is alot of ways to know whats the name of your mother board
    1) when you turn on your computer in the first black screen at the top left
    corner it should tell you the name
    2) if you entered the setup for your motherboard by pressing DEL botton it
    should tell you the name in the top
    3) if you open your PC you should see somewhere a print in white with the
    name and the model number of your motherboard.
    4) in your windows if you go click on start then run type there DXDIAG and
    then hit enter in the middle you should see SYSTEM MANUFACTURER which will
    tell you the name of your motherboard as well.

    ENJOY..
