Default Motherboard Name

Just for future reference, where, on the motherboard, can I find it's name? Because I'm always fixing friends' computers and that information would be helpful to know.

well some boards have it in nice big letters on heat sinks or on the deck itself. Otherwise, look for a stick with a bar code, should say on there. have a look around on the board...if its not on the face of it...check on the back of the board.

Plenty of times if you have a model # of a brand name pc, you can look up the specs online for that particular pc. If not, crack open the case and look for every piece of info on the motherboard itself you can find. Numbers/letter characters can be googled and you can usually find motherboard model names.

Not to complain, but for a "Guru" with over 2,500 posts ... shouldn't this be something you should know?

Yea, as others have said, it' generally printed on the board near the CPU or between the slots. If it's not there, there may be a sticker on the side of one of the slots with the needed information there. Some are even marked on the bottom of the board.

Here's a nice article for ya: Motherboard Identification: How to identify make/model of motherboard

Seems like there ought to be some kind of indication of what kind of Guru they really are other than the ability to zing off over 2,500 posts in 8 months.

Nice job you two. The guy asks a simple question and you both give him grief about it.

I'm not trying to give him grief ... I just see all those reps and posts and I shake my head in wonder. Perhaps I need to research more on how to determine what a member has a "reputation beyond repute" in. For all I know this guy probably is a genius in web design, of which I have no knowledge or skill in. Maybe there needs to be more clarification in avatar areas of what areas members are Guru's in?

I don't. I just try to answer the question or offer help to the best of my ability. It doesn't help the problem at hand to denigrate the OP in any way.

They're probably referring to an earlier post made by JogaBonito1502.

Head in the sand is always an option I guess. As I said in the rest of that post ... perhaps there's a need for clarification of what specific area a member is a guru in.

Maybe medicine really does taste the same.

Mostly between the PCI/PCI-E/PCI-X slots. Sometimes, it's between CPU Socket and RAM Slots.

you guys actually pay attention to the posts and reps?
i dont since some people spend most of their time on the social and get their reps from there and post count up.
and sometimes we get a +1 for like no reason at all.
everybody will have questions about computer parts, we all have our specialty in certain parts of computers.

yeah we totally understand that. Just wanted to make clear, but we were only kidding around about the whole post and rep thing. sorry if we offended anyway, it was only meant in a joking manner.

This is just stupid. Why base everything on post count and rep? Since when do those two factors mean anything at all?

Everyone will have a question once in a while, whether they've 1000 or 10 posts. And for all the people throwing "n00bs" and "epic fails" back and forth, honestly, it's just embarrassing that Joga's question can't be answered without insults.
