Question about HP Compaq Presario v3000z Notebook
How can i identify the motherboard of the laptop even w/out opening the case.. sori, im so jurassic..
Watch the computer as it boots.
The manufacture's name and motherboard model might be displayed as the BIOS goes through its post routine.
Use the Pause Key to freeze the screen (and any key to restart it).
Download and run CT BIOS.
This utility may grab the manufacturer's info from the BIOS. In the case of my BIOS, it listed the manufacturer's web site URL among other things.
Visit Wim's Bios Page for help identifying the board with BIOS numbers.
Some boards just may have an FCC ID number on the board/slot, in the motherboard book, or elsewhere on the computer if the same manufacturer made more than just the motherboard.
That number can usually be matched to the manufacture's name, etc. using the FCC data base at: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/.
Use that info to find the manufacturer with an Internet search engine.
This is also useful for finding the manufacturer of expansion boards, etc.
Other motherboards may just have the model number of the board on them. Run this number through some of the Internet search engines.
