System Information collects and displays configuration information to help support personnel diagnose and correct problems. This tool displays the required data to resolve problems, including information about hardware, system components, and the software environment. More specifically, the tool can be used to gather information about the following:

System Summary provides general information about your computer system. This includes information about the version of Windows that you are running, including the installation folder, the amount of physical and virtual memory, the locale and local time zone, and information about system hardware, including basic input/output system (BIOS), central processing unit (CPU), memory, and other system resources. Use this information at the beginning of the troubleshooting process to develop a basic picture of the environment in which the problem occurs.

Hardware Resources displays hardware resource settings such as direct memory access (DMA) interrupt requests (IRQs), input/output (I/O) addresses, and memory addresses.

Components displays information about the Windows system configuration, including information about the status of peripheral devices, ports, and universal serial bus (USB) connections.

Software Environment displays a snapshot of drivers, environment variables, tasks, and services loaded into computer memory. This information can be used to see if a process is still running or to check version information.
