sudo lshw -html > ~/Desktop/hardwareinfo.html

It'll be at the top of the form under "id: core" :)

You should now have a file on your desktop called hardwareinfo.html, just open that with firefox and you will see the info

Maybe a dumb comment, but have you looked on the motherboard? You can also look in your BIOS when the PC boots up.

I have a sneaking suspicion that your PC is not built by you, but a generic PC like E-Machine or something similar. In that case, those PC's motherboards are not 3rd party but build for that particular model of computer, like a lot of other PC makers. So finding a motherboard model number will be pointless in that case.

Tell us what you are trying to do with this information, maybe we can help.

Check your desktop.
My command creates a html file readable by firefox

It's good for easy reading too :)
