  1. Could someone tell me how I could find my computer specs so I can record it. I'm such a noob. Sorry!!! I just wanna ring stuff like my RAM, HD space, Processor type, Graphics, you know all that stuff.

    Download Everest Free Edition. This program should be able to tell you a lot about you system. I have used it in the past, but I personally forget if it reports hard drive space. That can be reported in your My Computer by highlighting the drive you want. Also, you can type in "dxdiag" on you start, and run command. Another alternative for finding out your motherboard, cpu, and memory specs is to download CPU-Z. Good Luck :wave: !

    Couple little tips you might find helpful.

    I. Right click on "my computer">properties (there's some for you right there).
    1.Click on the "hardware" tab.
    2.Click on "device manager" (more info).

    II.Or: Start>All programs> Accessories> system tools> system information. (This might be all you need right here)

    III.SIW has some serious system information capabilities(but it is complicated)

    IV. System internals has some stuff

    V. Check Techspot's download section on topic

    Hope that wasn't just a bunch of random not-so-helpful info. Peace out :)

    For graphics click start>run> type dxdiag>click ok> if it comes up a message first click yes> then up at thr top of the tabs click Display.

    For RAM, CPU info and clock speed follow the same steps above but instead of clicking on Display click on System.

    For Hard Drive space go to start>my computer>right click local disk (C: )>properties- then it will tell you your used and free computer hard drive space.

    Hope I could help
