Find System Information Using Windows Utility


You use your computer probably every day, but do you know anything about some of the actual system environment, typically this is called your system information. Some people will know what that term means, and many will not. Typically this information is not needed by you, unless of course you have to call a tech support or perhaps want to see what if you have any problem devices or perhaps information about your video display and graphics card. Of course there are many other situations why you might want to know this information. Someone such as an administrator which is responsible for the upkeep of the computers in an office would need this information.

The file system info offers a lot of valuable data. It can be helpful if you wish to upgrade your motherboard, or perhaps see what version of bios you are running. Many times, a typical home user will not need this information. The system information will tell you important data about things such as hardware resources, components such as your cd-rom, modem, mouse, ports, network, display information, USB, and even problem devices. You can also find system information such as your software environment and internet settings. The list goes on and on.

Let us explain a bit on how you can get to it on your Windows machine so you can see what this is all about. We will tell you two ways to get this information box to appear. This should work with most versions of Windows.

First way you can try:

* Click on your start button.

* Click on run.

* Type in the following text msinfo32 (or try msinfor32.exe if that does not work), press the enter key.

* You should now see your system info box.

Another way to try it is:

* Click on your start button

* Click on Programs.

* Click on Accessories.

* Click on System Tools.

* Click on System Information.

* You should now see your system info box.

Once you are here, if you need to find system info on something specific you can easily type it into the search box. The find option offers a fast and convenient way to locate data.

As you can see now that you have the box open, there is quite a bit of important data there, this can help you find system information that might be conflicting or causing hardware failures. It could also be a place to start if you are trying to locate where a conflict might be occurring, and even where your memory is being allocated.
