I have a group of servers that should be identical.

However 2 of 15 of these servers have a consitant problem, hanging so bad that they have to be reset.
Is there a way programically that I can compare a known good server to a server that hangs.  

I would like to compare, drivers, software, patches, everything I can.

Now I am fully aware that this could be a hardware problem, but I have to 'prove' its not something with the OS first.

What is running on the server?

You're probably going to a lot of trouble to COMPARE.
I would look at app logs, etc... first. Any errors in the logs?

Run perfmon for a while, maybe on both servers to see if memory, disk queue, connections, etc is getting hit hard on the troublesome server.

Here is a link for a script to pull WMI info from multiple servers in servers.txt

There is a link at the top-right to download the full code listing. The code is discussed thoroughly in the article.
