    Is there any way to find a list of all the components that make up the board and any other hardware.

    You could get a list of all the components Windows sees by right clicking My Computer (or Computer, depending), clicking Manage, and then selecting Device Manager in the right pane of the Computer Management window. They are all broken up into different categories, by expanding the category you can see what components of each type there are.

    The simple answer is no. You'd have to examine the board or attempt to look up the information on the web; and manufacturer's do not publish this information either so its no simple task.
