Identifying the manufacturer of a Motherboard

It’s me again, more trouble. For those interested see http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/4161023/acronis-ti-backed-up-data-problem/ Is this the correct way to cross-refer?

Having described myself as a virtual Luddite unable to deal with anything electrical or mechanical, I’ve just discovered a case including a fitted motherboard, three memory slots containing two strips of 256Mb of memory, a processor and fan, together with a myriad of wires, one of which is of the SATA type. A barebones job I suppose? The case front is in the shape of a Porsche car and probably the reason I bought it. I don’t remember having a user manual for the motherboard which is where my problems start. I’ve gone over the motherboard quite carefully but can find no name of the manufacturer. Without the user manual I have absolutely no idea where all the wires plug-in. Have any of you an idea where I go next? I don’t suppose lotvic, woodchip or rdave13 will want to become involved, after their last marathon?

I think you're right Fruit Bat //0\. The most straightforward solution to my problem will be to buy a bare bones machine that'll take the new SATA drives I've bought. After all the toing and froing and the help I've been given it seems a ashame to take the east route. Thanks to everyone whose contributed.
