How to Find Motherboard Manufacturer, Model, Serial Number, and Version in Windows


A motherboard is the main printed circuit board (PCB) used to connect all the parts of a computer together. The CPU, memory, hard drives, and other ports and expansion cards all connect to the motherboard directly or via cables.

You need to know the brand (manufacturer) and model (product) of the motherboard to look up its specs for what components it supports.

Also knowing the motherboard version number can be helpful when looking for BIOS firmware updates from the manufacturer's support site.

A serial number allows the manufacturer to identify a product and get additional information about it, for registration, replacement, or as a means of finding compatible parts.

You can open the computer case and read the brand, model, and serial number directly from the motherboard, but it can often be much easier to get this information from within Windows instead.

This tutorial will show you how to find the manufacturer, model, serial number, and version of the motherboard in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
