Windows – the easiest way to get a detailed list of the hardware in the Windows box


I'm running a Windows 7 release candidate, but I'm pretty sure there's a way to do it that works on XP and above.

In Windows Vista (and I believe XP and 7), you can go to Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information. If this doesn't work, try searching for it or entering "msinfo32" in the run box. This provides a system summary, hardware resources, components, and software environment areas, as well as search options.
