Windows 7: How can I check what display I am running on my windows 7 notebook?

How can I check what display I am running on my windows 7 notebook?

Hi all,

I have suspicion that acer china support has stolen parts out of my Aspire 5742. I went to the offical acer service center in my city. I got their location and adress after contacting acer by phone.

All they had to do was reinstall a corrupt operating system, I tried it myself a couple of times and did not work so asked the official support for help. They told me to go to this location in my city. I went there and now I have my computer back. The operating system has been reinstalled correctly, but there are lots of weird things going on with my computer. I have serious suspicion that they have exchanged some parts in my computer. What can I do about this? How can I check if I am running original parts for my system?

I especially want to know if I still have the same screen.

My aspire 5742 has a 15.6" HD 1366 x 768, High-Brightness Acer Cine Crystal™ LED-backlit TFT LCD

How can I check if this is still the case? I have the impression they exchanged it with another screen.

Hi there ..... I doubt very much that they would have changed your screen ..... What makes you think they have ?

There is a program called Speccy .... Download it ..... It will give you your System Information

Cooler-running SODIMM RAM for notebook??
wondering if any of you hardware gurus are convinced that one type of RAM vs another runs cooler? I see that, on the desktop side, Corsair has some current generation DDR3's that have a heat spreader that, I guess, is supposed to make them cool efficiently, but I have not seen such for notebook. ...
