Motherboard identification, cannot find model num anywhere

Trying to identify motherboard to see if it is bad, computer is not a name brand, I have the motherboard out of the case now, was working and suddenly stopped, how can I find out what kind it is if the model num is not where it usually is on other motherboards? And then I read somewhere on the web that they can be tested outside of the case. Power supply and hard drive seem to be ok. Can I, as an amateur, find out what is wrong with the motherboard?

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.

I realize that many people try to identify their entire computer by identifying their Mother Board. This can be used as a temporary measure but when we start to work and trouble shoot we will need the following information: (1) Name of computer manufacturer and the Trade name of the computer, in your case your server. (2) The model name and number. (3) The Mother Board identification number. I am sure if you have a server you should know where to find it, even though we would be more than happy to assist you. (4) You have given us a glimpse of the way that your server developed a failure. This is good. However we need have much more detail to help us speed up your repai, which will be done by you with our assistance. Please give us a description with all detail of what happened before failure, during failure and after failure. There may be a small detail which you did not think of importance and that just might be the key to fix your problem. For me, to be able to guess what is the problem, based on what you said, I must be a fool. Thank you very much. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)

Identify older Suttle motherboard

If you look on the motherboard, there should be some sort of nomenclature printed on the motherboard identifying the model of it. You can also try to use a utility called everest which may identify the motherboard without you actually opening your case. You may download a trial version here.

Motherboard number

If your computer has a model number, then do a Google search using the following string:

(Brand Name) (Model Number) +driver

This will bring up a list of sites (including the manufacturer's) where you can download the drivers.

If it has been constructed from components, then try this site to identify all the drivers that you will need to download.

Run the scan (which is free), but don't pay their fee for downloading the drivers unless you really want to. Just do a Google search using the name of each driver that needs to be reinstalled and include the "+driver" in the search phrase. Slow, but it will get you there.

This is kind of a tough one, so I'll give you what I can. Open the case and locate the largest board ( the motherboard) and painted on the motherboard (with usually white lettering paint) there should be the name of the manufacturer. Some of the majors are Asus, Intel, Biostar, Abit, Foxconn, Gigabyte, evga just to name a few. There should be a model number painted somewhere on the board in smaller lettering as well. If not paint, look for a thin somewhat long sticker towards the perimeter of the board which contains a model number and a serial number. If you can find a model number but no vendor name, do a google search on the model number and the name might pop-up. If this doesn't get you anywhere, your next step is to identify the sound chip itself. This isn't as daunting as it sounds, but will take a bit of time. To identify the sound chip look on the motherboard, and write down the information on each chip. You don't need to write down any information for chips that have heat sinks (like the processor, graphics, sometimes the bridge chips) will only leave a few. Then do a google search one by one until you hit on one that is a sound chip. Then do a google search for drivers for that chip. Hope this gets you started.
