Detect unknown hardware
Posted on 2004-08-20
Does anyone know of any application that can detect what hardware I have installed on my computer. Here is my problem: I have an old DELL Optiplex 350GL+ on which I just installed Windows 98. I need to find drivers for a couple different pieces of hardware (video, ethernet, modem etc.) but when I visited Dell's site, it has several different drivers for each piece of hardware. I guess this is because Dell doesn't use the same brand of hardware for every PC within a particular model. I own a Dell Inspiron laptop and the utliy CD that came with it has an application that detects what hardware I have installed so that I can download the correct drivers. I have been unable to find such an application for this old Optiplex machine and I don't have any of the original disks that came with it. Can anyone help?
