Hardware troubleshooting of motherboard on Debian

Hello all

I would like to know what are essential troubleshooting commands to run on Debian to determine hardware issues involving the motherboard such the networking issues with a NIC/ADSL card, system fan trouble, memory card not installed correctly etc.

Thanks in advance.
