I usually use a mixture of CPUz, MSI Afterburn, and Speedfan. Mostly monitoring. Passmark is a great benchmarking tool as well.

However, holding down Ctrl, Shift, and Esc will bring up your Task Manager which can give you a pretty good rundown at a glance, Windows Vista/7 also has a built in performance monitor. Perfmon.exe

For hardware checking/reporting and performance monitoring I prefer AIDA64 Extreme Edition. It also has some benchmarking but I usually rely on Futuremark products for that.

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

there is no real good checking tool - since they only test a kind of setup
if you post your specs, and specify your problem, we can assist further
what OS, CPU, Ram, and disk (+ free Space ) do you have?
what are you trying to run ?

For hard drives, I recommend ATTO Disk Benchmark http://www.attotech.com/products/product.php?sku=Disk_Benchmark
SSD's require programs which test them more rigorously, such as AS SSD Benchmark http://downloads.guru3d.com/AS-SSD-Benchmark-download-2569.html and CrystalDiskMark http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskMark/index-e.html

For networks, I recommend Ixia QCheck http://www.ixchariot.com/products/datasheets/qcheck.html

For RAM and whatever else, I recommend Passmark http://www.passmark.com/
