Hello everybody! In this video, I’m going to show you how
to view information on your computer in a Windows operating system and do it with standard
system utilities or third-party programs. If you need to find the information on your
computer’s configuration, operating system, installed drivers and modules it can support
– for example, the name of your network interface card, graphics card or sound card, the version
of BIOS or UEFI, the version of Direct X your computer is using, or the model of your motherboard
– this video will be useful for you. So, let’s begin. Learning basic information with the standard
Settings application If you want to see basic information about
your computer, open Settings, System and then find the line “About” below. In the window that opens, have a look on the
right to see three sections containing certain data. The first one shows how your PC is protected
in real-time mode. The next section gives you basic information
on the computer’s configuration, processor model, the amount of system memory, product
and device identifiers, and the system type (32-bit or 64-bit). The last section characterizing Windows shows
the name, version, installation data of your operating system, as well as the build number. Below, you will see three links. The first – “Change product key or upgrade
your edition of Windows” – lets you change the product key and read more about product
activation. The other two lines let you read the Microsoft
Service Agreement and the Microsoft Software License terms. When you click on “System,” a window will
appear containing system information. The standard utility “System” with more
detailed information The System app dates back to Windows XP. It can show you more detailed data on the
system and the hardware components. To open it, press the key shortcut Windows
+ R, and type msinfo32 in the window that appears. You will see more info, and it’s more detailed. As you can see, it shows your OS manufacturer,
detailed information on the hardware configuration, BIOS version, motherboard model, system memory
and so on. If you expand the tabs on the left, you’ll
be able to use all functions of this utility. Probably, all this data is most useful for
software developers and system administrators only, but at the same time, it contains almost
all the necessary information about your system. This is where you can see everything you need
to know about the PC you are using. For example, in the Components section, expand
“Network” and then click on “Adapter” to see comprehensive information on this device:
name and model of the network card, manufacturer name, driver version, current status and all
related settings applied at the moment. You can export all this data into a text file
by clicking on a corresponding item, then “File,” choose “Export,” select the
folder and file name, then click “Save.” This option is very useful when you need to
send your system data or information about the errors you are facing to another user
or to a support helpdesk, or if you just want to save a copy of your system configuration
and settings – just to be on the safe side. Now, at any time you can open this file and
view all data and settings you are interested in. System information in the command prompt
If your Windows fails to boot normally, you can use the command prompt to view the system
information. If your operating system fails to boot and
you need to recover important data from the hard disk, watch a video in our channel on
how to do it; find the link in the description. Run the command prompt and go to the directory
where this program is located. Type “cd C:WindowsSystem32,” then follow
it with the command “systeminfo.” After the analysis, the utility will show
the information on the system build number and version, processor, BIOS version, boot
drive and network. Device Manager in Windows 10
One more way to get some information on your PC is by using Device Manager. It’s the only tool to manage drivers for
every device within the computer and handle the resources allocated for them (interrupt
requests, DMA channels, memory areas, input and output ports). It also gives you more extra information. You can open it by right-clicking on the Start
menu and selecting it from the list, or by right-clicking on This PC and selecting “Manage”
from the menu. In the window that opens you can see all devices
installed for this computer. Then go to any line you are interested in,
for example, Processors, and open it. You will see the window with properties of
this hardware, and the tab General above containing general information. In the Driver tab, you will find information
on the device driver and the options to update or roll back the driver, disable the device
or uninstall the device. Two other tabs show the details and events
related to operation of this device. How to view your DirectX version
If you want to know, for example, the version of DirectX – the special set of ready graphical
elements, procedures and functions that Windows operating system provides for use by external
programs. The easiest way is to press the key shortcut
Win + R and type the command “dxdiag.” As a result, the DirectX Diagnostic Tool will
start. In the first tab, you will see some data on
your PC and the information on DirectX version. You will also see the data on the system,
display, sound devices and input devices. Extra utilities
There are also lots of other utilities to give you more detailed info on your computer. One of those worth mentioning is AIDA64 – and
you will find the download link in the description. This utility will help you to test and identify
all devices connected to your PC, provide detailed information on the hardware and software
components and much more. This is where you can see almost everything
about your computer, from hardware to software details. When you open Computer / Summary, the entire
information will be shown. Computer type, operating system, computer
name, motherboard name, video adapter, sound equipment, data storage devices, network,
peripheral and input devices. For more details, open the tab you are interested
in. In the Sensor tab, you can see the temperature
of your processor, video adapter and hard disk, their voltage and power they are using. In the Benchmark test, you can check your
system memory and processor. That is all for now. Hit the Like button and subscribe to our channel. Leave comments to ask questions. Thank you for watching. Good luck.
