Hi Nickus,

Another way to get to system properties is press the Windows key+ the pause
key, then route your Jaws cursor to the PC cursor, press the page up key, &
arrow down 1 line at a time to read the information. Hope this helps. Take

Your welcome, glad it worked out for you.
the other ways are, go to the control panel then system,
this will give you OS, CPU & amount of ram.
or you can get software such as Lavalys EVEREST
this will tell you just about everything including serial numbers of
hard drives & so on,
great to keep in case you have a crash & need to put in a warranty claim.

How did you go fixing your friends system?
If I can help with that let me know.
