Getting a list would be quite long, however this site has every event I've ever needed to look up:

Dude thanks for trying but I need a full list as opposed to searching for a particular event.

To be more specific I'm in need of all hardware related event-ids.

Thats Ideal...but do you know of anywhere where I could get it for free?

If nobody can answer after a few days I'll sort you out with the points ;0)

Hey Anil

This is a good site but its not what im looking for.

Looking for something that will give me hardware related Ids

Maybe something similar to the above site, but when I type in say hardware it will produce a relevant id's

Some programs that may help you

Above tools are Open Source and you can get the free source code and a lot of useful stuff from :-

If above tools do not solve your problem, you can just modify their code according to the requirement. The only thing I can say is They are really wonderful

Hi sunilcomputer/all

Had a look at these apps....not sure if they can help me. And I'm not into the whole code rearranging thing!

Ok basically I have this app that reports back to me according to event id's that are produced. At the moment I got event-id's stored in it from past event-id's that have previously come up.
What I need is a list of all hardware related event-ID's to plug into this app because at the moment I have no alerts if there are hardware events arise.

I've increased the points to 300!! Please!!!


According to my search there is no list of all the event ID's available online.
Just consult MSDN or write it to microsoft and see if they respond.

Hi all

I've managed to find a program that can open the dll files that hold all the event id's on a machine. (messageparser.exe, found on however....

does anyone know where I can find a description of the source of an event?


agt-itAuthor Commented:
Really appreciate that mate :o)
Not only is that PDF not even close to being a complete list of event ids (and not even a complete list of hardware related id's) but they are all HP specific. Is that really what you are looking for??

The server I am concerned about is a HP so although it is not an exhausive list, much of them may be used.
This is all I can do for u
