its not the best thing but device manager will show you some of the specs. Device manager is in most versions of windows

I use a program called SIW (System Info For Windows). The interface is a bit dated but it has TONS of information about both hardware and software.

The best way to get all information about your hardware is to use EVEREST Ultimate Edition. Note that it is not free.

Actually, the easiest way is probably PC Wizard. It is free and actively updated. I've used it on everything from my main desktop to my old laptop and it works fine.

I used Sandra for a long time but I didn't like that you had to install it.

PC Wizard is a bit lacking.

Now I use Astra32, you can just run it without installing.

Lavalys Everest is one of the most popular and has the best database of hardware, even showing you links to manufacturers info and drivers - now you may find even portable version of it, so no need installing.

For beginners, PC-Info (www.new-easy-tools.org/pcinfo.html) can show you details of your hardware =)

Lavalys Everest is the best one, no doubt! I've been using it since it was called AIDA32.
