CPU Serial NUmber:

type
TCPUID = array[1..4] of Longint;

function IsCPUID_Available : Boolean; register;
asm
PUSHFD {direct access to flags no possible, only via stack}
POP     EAX {flags to EAX}
MOV     EDX,EAX {save current flags}
XOR     EAX,ID_BIT {not ID bit}
PUSH    EAX {onto stack}
POPFD {from stack to flags, with not ID bit}
PUSHFD {back to stack}
POP     EAX {get back to EAX}
XOR     EAX,EDX {check if ID bit affected}
JZ      @exit {no, CPUID not availavle}
MOV     AL,True {Result=True}
@exit:
end;

function GetCPUID : TCPUID; assembler; register;
asm
PUSH    EBX         {Save affected register}
PUSH    EDI
MOV     EDI,EAX     {@Resukt}
MOV     EAX,1
DW      $A20F       {CPUID Command}
STOSD          {CPUID[1]}
MOV     EAX,EBX
STOSD               {CPUID[2]}
MOV     EAX,ECX
STOSD               {CPUID[3]}
MOV     EAX,EDX
STOSD               {CPUID[4]}
POP     EDI {Restore registers}
POP     EBX
end;

Not sure you can get the graphics serial number as it is probably not coded into the GPU BIOS.

This is for the motherboar Serial number id.
First download and save to your folder this pas file :
http://www.workshop-alex.org/sources/WbemScripting_TLB/WbemScripting_TLB.pas 



uses
  ActiveX, WbemScripting_TLB;

~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
function GetSerialNumber: string;
const
  sQuery = 'select SerialNumber from CIM_BIOSElement';
var
  Item: SWbemObject;
  NumProp: LongWord;
  ObjectSet: ISWbemObjectSet;
  OleProperty: OleVariant;
begin
  ObjectSet := CoSWbemLocator.Create.ConnectServer( '', 'root\cimv2', '', '', '', '', 0, nil ).ExecQuery( sQuery, 'WQL', wbemFlagBidirectional, nil );
  if Succeeded( (ObjectSet._NewEnum as IEnumVariant).Next( 1, OleProperty, NumProp ) ) and ( NumProp > 0 ) and Succeeded( IDispatch( OleProperty ).QueryInterface( SWBemObject, Item ) ) then begin
    Result := VarToStr( Item.Properties_.Item( 'SerialNumber', 0 ) );
  end else begin
    Result := '<Not found>';
  end;
end;
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
OR USE THIS FOR FULL INFO :

function SerialNumber: string;
const
  sQuery = 'select SerialNumber from Win32_BIOS';
var
  Item: SWbemObject;
  NumProp: LongWord;
  ObjectSet: ISWbemObjectSet;
  OleProperty: OleVariant;
begin
  ObjectSet := CoSWbemLocator.Create.ConnectServer( '', 'root\cimv2', '', '', '', '', 0, nil ).ExecQuery( sQuery, 'WQL', wbemFlagBidirectional, nil );
  if Succeeded( ( ObjectSet._NewEnum as IEnumVariant ).Next( 1, OleProperty, NumProp ) ) and ( NumProp > 0 ) and Succeeded( IDispatch( OleProperty ).QueryInterface( SWBemObject, Item ) ) then begin
    Result := Item.Path_.RelPath;
  end
  else begin
    Result := '<Unknown>';
  end;
end;
