system specifications

by oisin / January 13, 2007 9:55 AM PST

Where can I find a summary of my systems specifiation ? I'm just looking for basic info:
1. CPU model and clock speed.
2. Amount of RAM.
3. Hard-disk size.
4. Network cards/Modems
5. Screen specs.

I know I can find all these things individually but surely there must be a summary of all this things together somewhere? I'm running Windows XP.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
