    I need to get the vital statistics on my sons computer. I probably have the original invoice around here somewhere that might help. However, we have updated the ram a couple times and the video card at least once. He is running win98.

    Is there some sort of command or report I can get from win98 that will tell me processor speed, amount of ram, video card, sound card etc?

    Thanks

    On my Windows 98 SE PC,click Start>Settings>Control Pannel>System>Device Manager,then click on the devices.For processor and memory ,that info is in Set up in the bios,hit the Delete key at the start up screen on my PC.Yours may be different.You can go to http://www.pcpitstop.com and run the PC test.At the end in the results it will give the hardware profile of your PC.Video card,processor,memory,etc.

    On the right hand side there are some buttons, one of them says, "System Information" Click it.

    It'll tell you more than you wanted to know about your system ;f
