    Program to find out all of your hardware information?

    I need to find a program to tell me all my drivers names and information. Could anyone help me with this? It would be greatly appreciated. I have to update my drivers, and it is hard to find the name when I open my computer. Thanks.

    What are you running? In Windows, you can just look it up...

    Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Info.

    Hope that helps....

    (Most programs that do look things up use the sys info.)

    Try finding 'msinfo32.exe' somewhere on your computer.

    You could try diag.zip (Diagnostics) or drh2000e.exe (Dr. Hardware 2000) both of which are free and can be found at ftp.fluidlight.com. I haven't tried them myself yet but did add them to my arsenal of programs/utilities for future testing.
    All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    If you want a program that tells you all you are running on your computer theres one called Belarc Advisor at www.belarc.com this one tells you all programs and hardware plus its free for home use. I use it and found that it is right on the money for facts about my system.

    SiSoftware Sandra! It's the ultimate tool. Finds out much more than just the version numbers. You can even do some benchmarking and compare to other systems.
