FAQ

A motherboard is a component that links all the other components of the computer together. You could say that the motherboard acts as a central, as all connections go to or through the motherboard in one way or another. For example, you can find all ports here, such as USB sockets, HDMI jacks, headphone jacks, and more.

Sometimes it may be necessary to find out which motherboard is in the computer. But for those who have never done it before, it can be a daunting task or is not that easy to know how to do this. To help, we’ve listed three different ways below to easily get an answer to the question.

  1. Click in the Search bar in Windows, and you can find it in the lower left corner of the screen, enter Msinfo and press enter. You will now receive a system overview that shows the components that are in your computer, including the motherboard. Locate System Manufacturers in the list, System Model, and Bios to see which motherboard you have.
  2. In Windows, go to the search bar and type dxdiag. Press enter afterwards or tap the dxdiag logo. When dxdiag comes up, you will find in the first tab "system" System manufacturer, system model and Bios. There you will find information about the motherboard.
  3. If none of the above ways display the accurate information, you can go through the command prompt. Click in the search bar in the lower left corner of the screen and type cmd. You now start the command prompt, and it looks like a black box with text in it. Now type: "wmic baseboard get product, manufacturer" and then press enter.

There are many different motherboards, and it is important that you choose one that works together with the hardware. You'll find motherboards in the price range from around 20 to well over a 1000 punds - depending on how advanced you want it to be. You always have to ask yourself what you are looking for and what your needs are.

  1. How many ports do you need? Need multiple USB and HDMI jacks?
  2. What are you going to use your computer for? If you're going to play games a lot, it's important to have a good motherboard, one that's optimised for gaming to give you the best gaming experience. If you are going to have a simple study computer or a computer just to surf the web, a simpler, and therefore cheaper, card is enough.
  3. Is that a good fit? If you already have a computer box, it is important that the motherboard is not too big. Common motherboard sizes include ATX, mATX, ITX, or E-ATX. It is also important that the motherboard fits with the processor you have or intend to use. Processors are "measured" by what their connection looks like, in processor terms called socket.
