Solution 1 (maybe a little tricky, but no software needed):
When you boot up you will most likely see a long serial number at the bottom screen. Write down that exact number (press [Pause]if it boots to quickly). Then you should take a visit at where you can determine the manifacturer of the board
Wims BIOS has a large list of matching model numbers, and if you're lucky your motherboard model number is already listed there. If not, try the Sandra method below:

Solution 2:
Get Sisoft Sandra at and see if it detects the Manifacturer and maybe even the model.

Then search google or look up the manifacturer website from
