What application should i use to see my laptops hardware details? [closed]

I have a Dell Inspiron and im going to try upgrading the RAM to 4gb. I wasnt sure what Ram it supported and what slots were used so it got me thinking. Are there applications out there that can tell me detailed info about my computers hardware?

"CPU-Z is quite a good one that gives lots of details

You should also check the manufacturers web sites since some BIOSes limit the maximum supported memory although I think they all support up to 4Gb. You will only be able to use the first 3.5GB if your using a 32bit OS."

"You sound like its only the memory that's of interest, in which case a tool like Crucial's System Scanner would be ideal.

Also you can usually replace the memory on Dells by opening a flap on the underside marked with an M in a circle, you may need to remove one screw only."

"System Spec

If you have some bucks to spare you can try Everest Ultimate Edition, it provides very detailed report
