Make and model can usually be decoded from the BIOS string that shows near the bottom left of the screen during the RAM test.

If there is not a clearly visible serial number label, I would not be too concerned.

Keep in mind that many OEM boards are NOT supported by the company that built the board. If you have an OEM board the only support route is through the original system manufacture.

Depending on what information you are looking for, you may not even need to know who made the board.

If this is an OEM board and you are looking for a BIOS update, you may end up at one of the 3rd party BIOS firms. For a fee, they will provide an updated BIOS for nearly any motherboard.

All electronic equipment is required to have an FCC ID. Thier web site at: http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/
States: "In order to promote efficient use of the radio spectrum the FCC has developed technical standards for devices that are capable of emitting radiofrequency energy when in use. Many of those products receive FCC identification numbers in accordance with the Commission Equipment Authorization rules prior to marketing."

Give it a try, you may find your mobo mfg and model.
