Oh dear, not an easy one to answer this one.

First, if all you require is a report of this information without a programmatic solution then Run the following from the start menu.

MSINFO32.EXE

This program definitely provides you with HardDisk info, processor type and Bios version along with a whole host of other environment details.

Exporting this data is a function of the application itself.

I'm afraid though that if you do in fact require details such a processor serial number then registry hacks may be the only solution, perhaps someone can provide detail on this?

There is also an ActiceX control called SYSINFO.OCX which may provide some assistance, but I don't believe it will do what you require.

Go to MS WORD -> Help -> About MS WORD -> System info : here u can find some info.

Hope this helps u...

SiSoft Sandra 2000 or 2001... I believe the full version of 2000 is free now. It will tell you the serial number, make, model, temp, etc. Until you're blue.
