Default Finding what mobo you have.

Ok, my friend is getting into the PC Gaming and wants more Ram for his computer. But his dad had the computer made by some guy and my friend doesn't know what kind of mobo it is to get the right Ram for it. So I want to know if there is a way to find out what kind it is from Windows...because the name isn't on the mobo.
