Hi Samm, thanks very much for getting back to me so quickly!
I've downloaded Aida32 and the result returned concerning my computer's motherboard is as follows:
CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4A, 2400 Mh (3 x 800)
Motherboard Name: Dell Computer Corporation Dimension 8300
Motherboard Chipset: Intel Canterwood i875P
System Memory: 512MB (DDR SDRAM)
BIOS Type: Phoenix (07/21/03)
Concerning the service packs, I'm sorry that I can't be more specific but as far as I am aware nothing major has been added in terms of service packs since when I got the computer and I'm currently running Windows XP Home Edition. Also, the printer is being connected directly to a rear USB port with no hub.
