    Utility to analyse hardware components of PC

    Some time ago I came across a free utility that could run on a pc and produce a list of components and their manufacturer. Does this ring a bell for anyone? It was really handy for times when components - or their drivers - fail and you need to reinstall.

    I have lost it somewhere in the mists of many rebuilds and would like to get it back into use.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thank you, both.

    I can't remember what the name was of the one I had, but I will follow these leads.

    Also from the CPUID stable is CPU-Z, which tells you more than you might ever want to know about your CPU, motherboard and memory.

    Please could you have another go with your link -- because it doesn't! (The blank after the http:// should be removed).

    Re: Utility to analyse hardware components of PC

    As BOB mentioned i also use SIW which is a very good product.

    Along my way i have also found a product called System Spec which can be found here -- > http://www.alexnolan.net/software/sysspec.htm

    It contains some features that SIW doesn't so they work well together.

    enjoy

    Edited by bigaldoc to fix the bad link. Thanks for the pointer, John.
