Is any of this info my motherboard type?

Hey im currently in need of finding out what motherboard my computer uses once upon a time it was a packard bell and my uncle had changed the cpu hard drive on it under his ownership.

I'm just wanting to do a few tweeks on it myself, speed it up a little while playing games and what not, i cant find any name on the board itself (unless its on the underside maybe?)

i have this info from my Terminal on ubuntu, i was wondering if any of this was my motherboard?

No. That lists (ls) your pci (pci) devices.

Try: sudo lshw

That will list (ls) your hardware (hw)

You can save an html file with the info if you use the command: sudo lshw -html > your-file-name.html
