    What do you want to do?
    Run a program that well scan systems to see what needs to be replaced?

    http://www.belarc.com/ (there is a free one per each PC and one you paid for scans the entire network)

    Run a Network Security program to scan all systems on subnet or ip range to see what type of OS, services, users are running and more?
    There is a tool from http://www.gfi.com/lannetscan/ that can tell you the above plus show you had your network can be more securied?

    I've use this at work to check systems status, it will tell, but you want something more then you're going to have to pay for it. But sounds like you're checking on system status. So did you go out and see why the PC has stopped? Could be a loose LAN connection or back jack or switch jack was unplug. Lanspy is also a sniffer program. as you can see.
