What is my Computers Specification - Windows

For Windows computers if you need help completing the form for your computer we can help in 2 ways.

We have an automated system scan which will scan your computer and provide a breakdown summary of your system which we can provide a quote for.  This needs to be run on the computer Itself

If you would like to find out the details without running any program then below is how to find out inside Windows.

Computer Make & Model

The majority of Laptops and Desktop computers which are from the big manufactruers such as Dell, HP, Asus and Lenovo write the model number on the computer itself.

On Laptops the model is written on a sticker on the palm rest of the laptop or on the base of the laptop.

On Desktop computers, it can be written on a sticker either on the side panel, rear of the system or the base.

System Information - Storage (Drives)

On the “System Informationwindow expand the “Components” option, then expand the “Storage” option and select “Disk” in the left panel.

This will list all the Disk Drives you have in your system

The “Model” gives you the model of disk drive you have. It may mention that it is an SSD (solid state drive) drive. If not then you would need to look up the model to check if it is a hard disk or an SSD.

The “Size” is the storage capacity of the drive. Due to the way this number is calculated it is usually less than the marketed capacity. So on any of our forms select the size slightly above this number.

eg the disk drive listed in the example has a capacity of 476.94GB. On our forms please select 500GB.

 

System Information - Graphics (Display)

On the “System Informationwindow expand the “Components” option, then select the “Display” option.

At the top this is the name of the model of Graphics Card (GPU) you have in your system.
