PC Wizard 2008

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2008, permalink System Information

 

I was checking up on Best of Free Software at jhoodsoft.org and I saw that John was building himself a new computer.

 

Here's what he said that drew my attention ...

 

I just built a new computer out of parts from TigerDirect

 

The good news: it was cheap. The bad news: the motherboard didn't come with any of the drivers and I spent about three hours figuring out what hardware I actually had.

 

Couple of tools that I stumbled on were quite helpful in my quest:

 

The first was PC-wizard. It basically tells you everything you need to know about your computer and the devices installed or attached to it, including brand name and model.

 

Be sure to drop by John's site to see his picks for the Best of Free Software.
