Get hardware information
Posted on 2009-05-01
Another question from a VB.Net newbie.
I have a small task where I have to retrieve a limited set of information about computer hardware. The details I need are the make, model and serial number (if possible) for the following devices:
1. Network Adapter
2. Graphics chip or card
3. Sound chip or card
6. Default printer
I've been able to find out how to get details for some stuff such as BIOS (except the manufacturer), printer settings and so on but not the make, model or serial number.
I have spent several days searching EE and the net for answers before deciding to pose the question
I'm sure that the solution will be fairly simple but since my need is urgent, I have allocated 500 points. I would have made it 1000 but the field wouldn't let me.
