    Grab BIOS Agent. Small download, freeware. That should give what you need to know.

    AIDA32/Everest should be able to tell you also.

    CPU-Z can give you that info. Plus what CPU you have and your memory. CPU-Z Oh, and it's free. :)

    Thanks for the respones. Ill be sure to check out some of those programs. I was planning on upgrading my memory and I needed to see how much my board can handle.

    Thanks

    If it is a generic board there may not be any brand or model information for those programs to give you.

    If they fail to ID the MB try Sisoft Sandra (free version) it will usually provide information on how much ram can be supported and tell you exactly what you presently have installed, and make recommendations on increasing RAM.

    After much searching and getting mixed results I figured out its a DFI Via Apollo Pro 133a. I tried GPU Z, and Bios Agent but in the end Everest did the trick.

    Now im looking for a PC-133 512mb stick of ram. 168 pin

    Thanks for the help everyone

    You gotta think if it's even worth it to upgrade your computer at this point. It may be wiser to just wait and put the money towards a new 'puter in the future.
