How to Check PC Details
PC details include components inside and outside the computer case. (pc image by Dron from

Many hardware devices and software programs work together and make up a personal computer. People do not see or manage most of those components, but it is still important that they be informed about them. For example, if you are frustrated at how slow a computer operates after installing a new high-performance video game, a quick glance at memory will tell you that you don't have enough memory to meet the specifications of the game. A peek at PC details alone can diagnose many system issues quickly and effortlessly, and that information is easily accessible in the Windows operating system.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click on the Windows orb logo at the bottom of the desktop to show the Start menu.

  2. 2

    Type "system information" in the search box at the bottom of the menu and press the "Enter" key to open the "System Information" window.

  3. 3

    Click the plus sign "+" next to the "Hardware Resources," "Components" and "Software Environment" sections to expand to see subsections in the left pane. Click on the sections and details about the PC will appear in the right pane.
