Devices Find Motherboard Details in Windows 11


  • Staff
motherboard_banner.png

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 which components it supports.

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

The motherboard 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 could 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 details of the motherboard in Windows 10 and Windows 11.

I tried Option 2 and 3 and both worked in Command Prompt and PowerShell but for some reason Terminal shows in all menus where it should but won't open.

Hello mate, :-)

If you mean Windows Terminal will not open from say the Win+X menu, then you might see if resetting the Terminal app may fix it.

Done that, just doesn't find Terminal. Ran sfc /scannow, found some files and fixed them but didn't help this but it's not a major issue as it just opened PowerShell anyway.

Another one I use is the free Belarc Advisor. I've also used a paid-for program that could list some licenses for installed programs but it wasn't cheap, good for those folks who lost their stickers or paperwork [the free version was more limited, didn't do the licenses and a few other things]. Fortunately don't need it so much now with the new method of Product Keys that started with Win8.
