Hi all,

I have heard of somethings like computer manufacturer and motherborad manufacurer. For example some time ago, when I had problem with my desktop PC, some asked me what's your computer manufacturer and motherborad manufacurer?
what's the difference between these two please?

So for a desktop PC only the motherboard manufacturer is questionable, yes?

No. It depends on who built the PC. If it was a manufacturer, such as HP, Dell, Acer, etc., then we need to know which manufacturer built it because you need to go to their respective websites for drivers.

If it was self-built or custom built, then you need to go to the motherboard manufacturer for drivers.
