Actually Thelma if you want detailed info on any hardware use this ditty of mine - Part B:
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
ATX Minimum Specs:
3.3v Rail (ORANGE) (Min: 3.14v Max: 3.47v)
5v Rail (RED) (Min: 4.75v Max: 5.25v)
12v Rail (YELLOW) (Min: 11.4v Max: 12.6v)
(GREY CABLE PIN 8 - 5v = Power Good signal)
0v “Rail” (ALL BLACK cables, case, and board fixing screws)
See this for the rail voltage info
Power Supply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
So if you go to drives in that it will tell you heaps of info on what they are, who made them, model numbers etc etc
