There are several ways that you can launch System Information in Windows 7. The easiest is to click the Start button and type msinfo32 in the Start Search box. When you do, msinfo32.exe will appear at the top of the search results and you just press [Enter]. You can also find System Information on the Start menu by going to All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information.
If you are in the Control Panel, you can search for and launch Performance Information and Tools, choose Advanced tools, and then select View advanced system details in System Information. Also while in the Control Panel, you can search for and launch Administrative Tools, launch System Configuration, and access System Information from the Tools tab.
