Could someone help me to add option to this vbs script. What I like to have added is harddrive size, videocard type. The script was made by BobSampson.

I can see in the txtfile that it collects:
Video Controller:
ConfigMgr Remote Control Driver

and not the name of the videocard.

And I would also, ask if the Combine hardware script in the same link can be used with this you are doing now?

Hi, so that I can determine how to read your Video Card name, please run the following code and let me know the results.

Regards,

Rob.
If LCase(Right(Wscript.FullName, 11)) = "wscript.exe" Then
    strPath = Wscript.ScriptFullName
    strCommand = "%comspec% /c cscript  """ & strPath & """"
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    objShell.Run(strCommand), 1, True
    Wscript.Quit
End If
 
Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20
 
strComputer = "."
 
   Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
   Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_VideoController", "WQL", _
                                          wbemFlagReturnImmediately + wbemFlagForwardOnly)
 
   For Each objItem In colItems
      WScript.Echo "Caption: " & objItem.Caption
      WScript.Echo "Description: " & objItem.Description
      WScript.Echo "DeviceID: " & objItem.DeviceID
      WScript.Echo "DriverVersion: " & objItem.DriverVersion

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

And yes, the "combine" of the text files script can be used as well.
