May the Force be with you all as you cyber through life. LOL
LMAO come on now none of us are that old. :-)
sorry ppl,had to leave for a while,Yes that is my system……..?Would it help to run things in windows 98?
Guys before we get tangled up with what is, there is an application that will inventory computers as to what innards are in the computer. The application will even give the Main/Mother boards manufacture of say a “Dell”, “Gateway”, plus if the computer is custom made, it give the model of the Main/Mother board as well. Hard drives, it will give make, date of production, model number, everything. It will list all of the types and manufacturer of the boards that are in the computer.
It lists software that you own, product number if it used such a thing. The name of the application is “Belarc” and can be downloaded from here.
She can list all of what you need to know then and go from there.
then selecting Run
and typing msinfo32 at the prompt
then pressing enter
will list everything in your system, and all the specs.
No need for third party software, although this might be a bit hard to read if you do not have a grasp of some of the more computer orientated language.
But thanks for the tip
Oldfart, does this msinfo32 also give the product number/code used by MS software so much? The reason I ask this is because this particular software does, even on non-MS software if it uses a product number/code. This is the reason that this software is recommended and it is done in a non-technical terms. In other words you do not have to a techie to understand what you have in your computer. Does msinfo32 give you make and model of the main/mother board? This software does, even on preparatory boards used by Dell, Gateway, etc., as well main/mother boards for custom systems? Plus this inventory application’s list can be stored for future reference. This why I recommend the Belarc application.
The short cut worked just fine for me. I usualy get there the hard ware.

I’v used programs like belarc before its works well with systems that I am working on but dont us it personaly becaluse I know whats on my systme.
Oh, no Oldfart I was just curious as to what it displayed that was all. I intended no offense by my statement. The information that old versions of “Norton” used to render was less then desirable. But you have to realize though not everybody has your or mine technical prowess to understand what “msinfo32.exe” is telling them were as Belarc and the others give just enough so the layman can understand and just enough information for a technical person like yourself to take a very educated guess as to what the problem is.

By the way on Windows 98, you do not get the listing like you do, it is much more technical in presentation. Yeah, Windows 98 has msinfo32, but just not the same listings. I find the help that you inform people with very interesting, really.
“I’v used programs like belarc before its works well with systems that I am working on but dont us it personaly becaluse I know whats on my systme.”
Does it matter? You two guys then are very interesting in the approach that are used. Then I fined you both very interesting with worthwhile computer information, okay?
Thank you every 1 soooooooooooomuch:)
