Dont Know What Hardware You Have..??

Hi... Sevenforum members.


this thread will give you the means to find what Hardware is contained within your machine... this will help others to help you.

once you confirm what components you have....

!! PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR SYSTEM SPECS !!


OK....

for your ...CPU, RAM, Motherboard, use this app.

CPUZ

upon opening this app it will show you .....CPU make & model, current speed, voltage.

the ''Mainboard'' tab will give you...... Motherboard make & model, PCIE bandwidth, BIOS version

the ''memory'' tab will give you...... , amount of installed RAM, current speed, current timings.

the ''spd'' tab will give you....... RAM make & model, standard ''JEDEC'' timings (these are the timings your sticks run at out of the box)

you can either run 1 instance of the app, or more (as shown in pic)

for you GFX card use this app.......

GPUZ

upon opening this app it will show you...... GPU make & model, current speed, driver version.

it also contains its own ''sensor'' for detecting card temperatures.

with the information from these 2 applications you can practically fill out all ''internal'' PC specs, alternatively when posting a problem these are very handy to snip & post.... a picture speaks a thousand words...



hope this helps.....

Well, it might be common for some users, but 90% of them don't have this common knowledge innate. They would appreciate if someone thought of telling them about it.

Thanks for the work SK

It always make things easier to help if you know what you're helping with

Would also like to make anyone who doesn't know about our own Vista Forums Sysinfo tool which will provide a lot of the info for the system specs.

If you want more details you can also try PC Wizard 2008.1.871 ( CPUID ) it gives additional details the above program doesn't.

The CPUID is x86 only right? That's what it says in the upper left of their site. I have never tried it because of that. 64 bit here.

That was some good work there!

Another freebie many don't seem to be familiar with however is much more thorough especially more then CPU-Z called SIW | System Information for Windows by Gabriel Topala

Not only does that list the makes and models for every hardware board included as well as cpu, hard drives, video and sounds cards, memory, temps and voltages as well it also lists all 3rd party programs as well as the OS installed on the system. The column goes right off of the screen for catagorizing each item.

Thanks Nighthawk, never heard of before either, I love this program, shows me even all of my passwords, show serial numbers for all software and programs, complete metadata readings. There's too much to list, however I like Everest for system info a little more.

It is quite thorough while no one program lists a complete total. I've been using that one for about 3yrs. now and am kind of glad to see that included in the FREE Great Programs for Windows 7
