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)!
Free eBook: A Crossroads for Windows XP Users: Windows 7 or Windows 8?. Microsoft's Windows XP has officially been decommissioned as of April 8, 2014, meaning that Microsoft will not longer support the software insofar as security updates are concerned. So, is it really that dangerous to continue using Windows XP? Security experts agree that the answer to that question is a resounding 'Yes!' If you are still using Windows XP, you should upgrade as soon as possible; otherwise, you run a significantly increased risk of being infected by malicious software (malware) - resulting in ID theft, credit card fraud, or worse. This eBook helps users decide which operating system would be the most viable option, depending on your current configuration. Click here to download this eBook now!
