I have a Windows 2003 Server that I'd like to sell but can't find the processor inside.

I have no "My Computer" icon but went into Word 2003 and selected Help->About and clicked the System button. I can;t find in that list of items what processor I have.

Could someone please help me find it? It's got 6GB RAM.

What things shal I find so I can list it accurately on eBay?

Thanks,

In Server 2003, click the Start button and then find My Computer (usually top right of the lists displayed), right-click and select Display on Desktop.
You can then right-cloick on the desktop icon and choose properties to get the detail you are familiar with.
(You can also get here by clicking Start>Control Panel>System)

You can get the same info you get through Word's Help options by going to Start>All Programs> Accessories>System Tools> System Information
Go to the System Summary page - the Processor Details are listed about halfway down the right-hand pane.

If the server is branded why not just post the make and model? That way everyone can look up the box details.

What about the server brand and model and even the server's serial number ... that can help.
