Belarc Advisor: Identify Your Hardware

" Dear Dennis,
I'm not much of a computer wizard, but I need to know how I can identify the make and model number of my motherboard so that I can check for updated software drivers and ensure that my system is up to date. Is there any way to do this without opening up the computer and peeking inside? I'm really paranoid about that sort of thing. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated! "
I think Belarc Advisor would be right up your alley. Of all the "system information" utilities I've ever come across, this one is pretty accurate. And as far as I know, it's kept up to date regularly. Best of all, it's -- you guess it -- free (for personal use)!
