    Just to see how much memory this sucker can handle, and to check other specs, I need to know how to identify it. All I know is that when it boots up, I see Pheonixnet and in the invoice it's an ATX 370 Socket Motherboard, and a Pentium 3 1GHZ(Upgraded from a P2 400 wich died). Where do I go from here?

    Thanks!

    The model number is usually printed on the motherboard, take a look. Otherwise you may be able to find the make from the BIOS string, look here for info:

    Or you could just ask the guys that did the repairs.

    If you want to find out without opening your computer, you could try a free program like Belarc Advisor:
    http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
    When you run this program, it will provide quite a bit of detailed info about all of your hardware.

    You can also look for the FCC-ID number. Most of the time the FCC-ID is the 3digit FCC Manufacture code followed by a model number. You can check the FCC-ID numbers at www.fcc.gov.
