    Computer Hardware Detection?

    Hey.
    I need a program that will detect exactly what hardware I got in my computer and display it for me. Any suggestions?
    (A program that does NOT take the information from the windows database is better)

    Thanks

    install any linux distro, log in (as root) and type lspci
    All the info about your PCI - AGP and mobo (IDE bridge etc).
    if you got ISA cards too, try pnpdump
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    Sisoft Sandra is a really neat utility. It's freeware but still nice.

    A great windows utility that does a lot of CPU type identification is WCPUID available for free at http://www.h-oda.com/

    Belarc by far is the best

    Theres no need to install this should work with a bootable linux distro like knoppix, put it in boot it up bring the console, change to root and type the commands as suggested
