There are a few ways that you can determine the motherboard that your Packard Bell has.

An example of a Packard Bell FCC label. This Packard Bell has a PB450 motherboard.

1. Look for the FCC label on your Packard Bell. This label is usually on the bottom of the case. An example of this label is to the right. Look for the FCC ID number on this label, it should contain letters and numbers. This number is outlined in yellow in the example to the right. For example if your number reads FCC ID:FOD680pt, your Packard Bell has a PB680 motherboard.

2. If your Packard Bell still has it's original hard drive and System Credentials you can use the System Credentials program to find what motherboard your system has.

3.If you have the original printed System Credentials sheet, your Packard Bell's motherboard will be listed as system type on this sheet.
