If you want to analyze your Windows computer’s hardware then Dr. Hardware is a great choice. This software has been around since the mid-1990s. It has worked through many generations of hardware starting from the days when Intel Pentium I processor was all the craze. It uses very thorough analysis methods to analyze your system hardware, software and gives you all the details.
It uses the latest available techniques to analyze the hardware so that the user always gets the most accurate information about their computer’s hardware. In addition to the hardware and software information, Dr. Hardware can also run benchmarks on all the components of your computer – memory, processor, hard drives, net drives, video, optical drives etc.
Typically Windows users will check about their system hardware information from the Dr. Hardware user interface itself. But if you want to save all this information along with benchmark results to a file then Dr. Hardware can also create a report for you. Here is how:
- Launch Dr. Hardware and let it finish analysis of your computer’s hardware.
- Click on the down arrow displayed near the printer icon and choose Create Report. If you do not want to save the report to a TXT file and want to print it directly to a connected printer then you can click on the printer icon itself.
- In the Dr. Hardware report configuration window, select all the items that you want to be included in the report. By default all the items are selected, but you should be careful in what to include in the report. Finally click on the Create Report button to initiate the analysis and generation of the report.
It will take a few minutes before the system analysis is complete and it creates the report. The report is usually saved in a file named Report_drhard.txt on your Windows desktop.
