In this tip we will see how to use the command line to check the model of your motherboard, this will help you better search for correct MB drivers in the web. You may use software with GUI to check information about system devices like i-Nex, CPU-G, etc.

To check the model of your motherboard under Ubuntu, open the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run this command:

sudo dmidecode | grep Product

Here are the outputs returned for my motherboard:

~$ sudo dmidecode | grep Product

    Product Name: EP45T-UD3LR
    Product Name: EP45T-UD3LR

If you run this command in a virtualized Ubuntu system, then the returned outputs will be the name of the used virtualization software/emulator (VirtualBox, VMware, etc.).
