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! "
