    the motherboard type and serial # are printed on the motherboard itself.
    All the extra info you listed is extraneous and useless info. the computer serial # should on the outside of the system (usually on the back)

    You might be able to go to the manufactuer and tell them your model # and computer serial # to find it out also.

    This is what happens with eMachines after a few years; they have no power supply protection. There is a big chance everything is ruined in your computer (the mobo), in which, you'll probably have to format your drives. I'm sorry; if I owned a computer company, I would put protection in if that makes you feel any better ;) .

    personally, I wouldn't even bother replacing the mobo and psu - he's be better off building a newer system and he might be able to recycle some parts.
