Right-click 'My Computer' and hit a tab concerning hardware, or devices or whatever. You'll find it.

You should've gotten that kind of information in booklets with your computer. If not, then find information online (probably at your manufacturers site) about your computer brand and model. Or, you can contact the maker of your computer and ask them for any details you want. That's what I had to do for my Gateway computer which came with nothing in the way of jumper information and such.

The only way to ID your mother board is to take your case apart. Then write down as many identifying #'s and characteristics as possible, such as number on the chips like your BIOS ID, any other important chip IDs, the number of peripheral slots like 3 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 ISA, and 3 EDO memory slots and any other info you can find printed on the board.
Then either use search engines to find the manual or go here, these guys are good they've ID'ed every MB i brought to em in less then 15 minutes.

Most manufacturers proudly place their name all over the place... and generally there is a model number also...
