How can I determine processor speed?

By Don Christner ·
How can I determine what processor and what speed processor are in my computers? Is there a way to do this over the network, or do I have to visit each computer? I am trying to document what everyone has for equipment so that I can determine the need for upgrades. We run WinNT 4.0 on some desktops, but mostly Win95.

Thanks,
Don

It will have to be done for each indivual machine to see processor speed during the Post or by opening the Cmos control panel and checking the configuration listed.
By opening the Control Panel and double clicking on System icon,it will give you vague info on what type of system you have
pentium or AMD and memory noted.

Although I agree with part of the above answer, I think another option you have is to try a little app I downloaded from www.sysid.subnet.dk, called sysid. It gives you great system info and best of all, it's freeware. You will have to install it oneach system but you shouldn't have to reboot and try to catch it on POST or open up the case. You might also want to checkout www.webmasterfree.com, they have some cool and useful tools there as well. Good Luck!

I have used a little utility called whatcpu for a variety of times where I need to know the CPU that's in a box. www.datadepo.com

I have not used the sysid mentioned above but it does look interesting and will have to try it.

I might also suggest that you take a look at TRACKIT from www.blueocean.com. It includes the ability to inventory your computers, the components AND the installed software, (often overlooked aspect) and create a database that assists during the upgrade decisions and future tracking of what is where etc. I have recommended this for several companies and they have really gotten alot of use out of it.

If your going to be making a upgrade plan then I would strongly suggest that you plan to visit each machine and make additional evaluations regarding retention (if any), conditions of monitors, additional devices attached, specialty software and requirements, and general placement.

I have worked in numerous organizations where Desktops are made into towers for deskspace, where unknown software is installed BUT MUST be retained, (and doesnt run on anything but old equipement without upgrade to package, and where additional connections are in place that must be accounted for. Walking it one time and taking notes saved alot of future trips and tripups.
