Every computer has its unique specification that depends on the sizes of its components like RAM, hard drive, graphics, and others. Finding the spec of your PC is easy for the most part, but things become tricky with checking the motherboard version. However, there is always a tweak to anything that does, and this post serves that purpose.

You will learn how to check your motherboard version with cmd and PowerShell. Let's dive in already!

Check Your Motherboard Version With the Command Prompt (cmd)

The command prompt is one of the essential tools in a Windows PC. You can do many things with the Command Prompt, and you will learn one of them in this section - checking your motherboard version. Follow the steps below to find your motherboard version with the Command Prompt.

Step 1: Open Command Prompt

The first step is to launch the command prompt on your computer, and you can do this in two ways:

First, use the search button from your taskbar.


  • Click the search button on your taskbar. 
  • Type cmd in the text field at the top of the search box.
  • Click on the command prompt icon in the search result or click on the Run As Administrator option.

You can also open the command prompt using the Windows Run utility program. The Run utility program helps you to run several computer programs, and you can open the command prompt as follows:


  • Open the Run utility program by pressing the windows button + R, or you can right-click on the start icon on the taskbar and select Run from the context menu.
  • Type cmd in the text field of the Run utility program and press the Enter button on your keyboard. You can also click OK in the Run window. 

Step 2: User Control Request

The system may or may not seek user control permissions depending on the option you selected in step 1. It will if you choose the Run as Administrator option, and you need to grant the request to open the command prompt. Click yes in the pop-up prompt, and the system will launch the command prompt.

Step 3: Check Motherboard Version Command


When the command prompt window displays, type in the required command line to check the motherboard version and press the Enter key on the keyboard. See the command line below:

wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

Note that you can copy and paste this command line into the command prompt.

Step 4: Locate the Motherboard Version


The system may take a few minutes to return the check results, so you should hold on during this time. When the process is complete, you will see the results from the check on the screen, and you can locate your motherboard version on the right side of the result page under the version column.

The result will bear other information about the motherboard like the manufacturer, product, and serial number.

Check Your Motherboard Version With the PowerShell

Another way to check your motherboard version is using the PowerShell application. PowerShell is a default Windows app, and you can find your motherboard version with it as follows:

Step 1: Open PowerShell


Access the PowerShell app with the Windows search option. Type PowerShell in the search field, and the icon will display in the search results. Right-click on the icon and select the Run as Administrator option.

Step 2: Allow User Control Request

The system will display the user control user prompt where you will need to grant the app permission to make changes to your computer. Click yes on the prompt, and the PowerShell prompt will open. 

Step 3: Enter the Command


When the PowerShell prompt opens, type the command below and press the Enter key to check your motherboard information. You can also copy and paste the command. 

wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

Hold on for a few seconds for the system to process the check. The waiting time varies with different PC speeds, but the result will surely pop up.

Step 4: Locate the Motherboard Version


Locate the motherboard version on the side of the page when the result displays on the screen.
