How to Find Out Your Motherboard Model?

I learned in school that motherboard is the heart of one machine. If the heart is not working properly, other components will not be able to run the heart. Based on that, the motherboard is the crucial hardware components of your machine. As a human, every motherboard has own name called model name.

There are different tools which can help you to find motherboard model. One of the easiest methods is to use tools which are already integrated into Windows. Also, there are third party tools which will help you to determine motherboard model.

Why should you need motherboard model? If you reinstalled your operating system, you will need to install motherboard drivers. You can not do it if you do not know your motherboard model.

The easiest method to find motherboard model is to do it through software or some tools. But what if your machine is not working and you can not run any of the previous tools and applications? In that case, you will need to open the computer case and check motherboard number. In most cases vendors like Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Asrock are stamping model name on the motherboard. If you do not have experience working with the computer case, we are recommending you to read user and service manuals which you can download on vendor website (brand name computer or computer case). Also, if you want to open notebook case, we are recommending you to read user and service manuals.

Method 8: Visit vendor website

If you do not want to open computer case or notebook case, there is another method which will help you to find system board model. Imagine, that you are using notebook HP 2000-2b19WM and you want to purchase a new motherboard. We are recommending you to open vendor’s website and find proper PDF document about your machine.
