... without opening your computer, and without any software


Everyone may need someday to know (or to remember) what motherboard, or CPU, or BIOS is in his computer.

You don't need to open your computer. You don't need a third-party software.

It's very simple:

1) In Windows, open a command prompt window:

You'll usually find the icon in the Star menu:
Start > All programs > Accessories > Command prompt

2) Type or copy-paste one of the following commands and hit the ENTER/RETURN key:

    For Motherboard
    Code:
    wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

      Example:
      Code:
      C:\Users\XXX>wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber
      Manufacturer           Product      SerialNumber     Version
      ASUSTeK Computer INC.  P8Z68-V PRO  109xxxxxx002078  Rev 1.xx

    For CPU
    Code:
    wmic cpu get name,CurrentClockSpeed,MaxClockSpeed

      Example:
      Code:
      C:\Users\XXX>wmic cpu get name,CurrentClockSpeed,MaxClockSpeed
      CurrentClockSpeed  MaxClockSpeed  Name
      3094               3401           Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz


    For BIOS
    Code:
    wmic bios get name,serialnumber,version

      Example:
      Code:
      C:\Users\XXX>wmic bios get name,serialnumber,version
      Name                                     SerialNumber          Version

      BIOS Date: 11/09/12 12:19:35 Ver: 36.03  System Serial Number  ALASKA - 1072009


This should work with any "modern" version of Windows (Windows NT, Vista, XP, Win7, Win8, and in the Win9 "Threshold" beta).

And, if I'm posting that, it's because I am still struggling with rebuilding a Windows system and I realized how much people may need this kind of info....
