  1. you can get this on the first display that comes up when you turn on your computer.
  2. you can also find it when your computer must have booted; go to "All programs", to "Accessories" to "System tools" and you will see 'System Information. Click the system information and you will find the manufacturer of your motherboard. When you look at the left side of the page, you will find other options like, hardware resources, components, etc
  3. You can also find it on the processor of your motherboard, likewise on the IC's on the motherboard and on the mother board panel itself.
You should be able to find out the manufacture of your motherboard from any of the above.

Best regards.

How do i find my product

If you need to identify your motherboard (the model number), you can do one of the below three things.
Identifying through Windows or other utility
Visually identifying
If you're trying to identify the motherboard for any of the reasons below, view these links for additional related information.
Motherboard form factor
Chipset or driver update
Product Listing or specifications
Replacement or repair
Identifying through Windows or other utility
First option is to view the manufacturer and model number in your Windows system, using the System Information utility. To access this utility, follow the steps below.
1.Click Start
2.Open All Programs, Accessories, System Tools and click System Information.
This utility provides a good bit of information about your computer. On the System Summary screen, you will find the motherboard manufacturer (System Manufacturer) and motherboard model (System Model). For example, for a computer with a MSImotherboard, the manufacturer would be MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL and a System Model of MS-7599. The Model is the model number of the motherboard.
Note: If your computer is an OEM computer, such as a Dell or Hewlett Packard, the model number may be the model number of your computer and not motherboard. For these computers, we suggest referring to the technical documentation for the model of the computer. These documents can be downloaded directly from the computer manufacturer.
The documentation or technical notes for your computer or motherboard also include the motherboard information. PDF versions of these documents can be downloaded from thecomputer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer website.
Visually identifying
Finally, every computer motherboard has a silk screened name of the model and the manufacturer printed on the motherboard. For example, in the picture below, this motherboard has the model name printed above the memory slots. Click the image below to get a larger view of this picture.
Tip: If you are unable to locate a manufacturer or model number of the motherboard, but are able to locate an FCC identification number, it is recommended that you perform an FCC search using that number. Additional information about FCC numbers and how to search for information about an FCC number can be found on our FCC dictionary definition page.

How to indent a motherboard?

Look for a group of numbers on the motherboard. They vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. But if you have an intel motherboard you probably have a manufacturer built system. Just type the model number of the Tower into your search engine and add motherboard after it.

Sound drive no install

First it's best to find out the motherboard manufacturer, once you do this, go to the manufacturers website, enter the mother board model, and version number, then download and install the correct dound card drivers.
Please note sometimes third parties such as Dell, etc. will change the motherboard number in the bios, so you'll have to be careful, the best way to discover the motherboard manufacturer, is to look for the manufacturer number on the board itself, and then go from there.

I want upgrade the CPU from 1.6GHz to 2.6GHz, is that possible?

Need more information about your motherboard...Manufacturer, model, version

most motherboards that had a 1.6Ghz processor will usually update to a max of 1.8Ghz - 2.9Ghz

It really depends on the manufacturer and what processors were available at the time your motherboard was manufactured

Do you have a manual for a canada ices class b mother board

Canada ICES (Industry Canada Interference Causing Equipment Standard), is as the full name for the ICES abbreviation shows, a standard in Canada. What is not stated by the abbreviated title, is that it's a standard for EMC, and the unwanted interference of radio communications, that can be caused by EMC. ElectroMagnetic Compatibility..

Article entailing EMC on Wikipedia,

From the Wikipedia article; "Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the branch of electrical sciences which studies the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy with reference to the unwanted
effects (Electromagnetic interference, or EMI) that such energy may induce. " Some electronic equipment produces EMI. ElectroMagnetic Inteference. Personal computers, are a digital electronic device, which Does produce EMI. However due to standards set by regulatory agencies, the EMI is kept down to an acceptable level. (FCC for United States. Federal Communications Commission)

Here you can see the different classifications set by Canada ICES, and the Class A, and B designation, For a motherboard made in the USA, the classification N1996, is a Radio Frequency Interference classification, quite like the ICES-003 standard.

Point? The classification has nothing to do with identifying what motherboard manufacturer made your motherboard. Let me give you some information I have gleaned over the years from experience, and what others have gleaned, and stated on the internet.

1st) Look in-between the Expansion slots for a manufacturer code. Generally a Model Number. To wit; A) ISA expansion slot (Generally Black in color) B) PCI expansion slot (White in color) C) AGP expansion slot D) PCI Express expansion slot.

More information on Expansion Slot, and information leading to the above stated types of expansion slots, I invite you to scroll down to the heading - Expansion Slot Standards, and left-click on each type stated.

This photo of a typical motherboard, shows a PCI expansion slot, (2 each. White in color), and a PCI Express expansion slot (1 each, and in this case a PCI Express x16. Black in color ) (You can left-click on the photo to enlarge it)

Looking in-between the black PCI Express x16 expansion slot, and the white PCI expansion slot, you will see ASUS. It is upside down in the photo. Motherboard manufacturer of this motherboard is Asus. Looking to the right of the blue Ram Memory slot 1, you will see Asus's motherboard manufacturer Model Number, for this motherboard, A8N -VM CSM REV 1.10G stands for Revision 1.10G Asus's code for how many times the motherboard design, has been revised.

Sometimes, the motherboard manufacturer model number, is printed on the motherboard right out in the middle. Sometimes along one edge. Sometimes NOT at all. Older motherboards made by certain motherboard manufacturers, were not proud to state their name on the motherboard, nor a Model Number. Reasoning is rumored, that these particular motherboard manufacturers, stole certain designs implemented by other motherboard manufacturers, (Usually top of the line manufacturers),. and used it on their motherboards. Most of those motherboard manufacturers are not in business today.

Here is more information on identifying your motherboard, IF, the motherboard is installed in a working computer, you may be able to use CPU-Z from, (Free, but they do accept donations), and find out who is the motherboard manufacturer. I state MAY, because there is a possibility that not all motherboard manufactures may be on record for CPU-Z. There ARE a LOT of motherboard manufacturers who are, However. Some of the main information that CPU-Z states, is the Motherboard Chipset. Armed with this info you can find out what, A) Processors can be used B) Ram Memory C) Graphics Cards Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia, (You can left-click on the CPU-Z GUI at the upper right, to enlarge it. GUI = Graphics User Interface) IF, the motherboard is Not installed in a working computer, working together, and looking for the motherboard chipset used, together we can derive needed information. [Motherboard Chipset; For one, Chip, and Chipset are slang terms used to denote I.C. Integrated Circuit. The Motherboard 'Chipset' is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip. (Unless, it is the new technology used on motherboards for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors)
