    Hi Y'all,

    I know I inadvertently came across a window that showed me all my installed hardware and the individual ratings for each item, but I don't know how I did it. Please advise. I tried to Google it but hard to find as the search terms just gives me all sorts of product ratings (as in number of stars), I'm sure there is a more specific name for what I'm looking for but I don't know it off the top of my head. :eek:)

    Thank you so much- it was 'slightly' different for me, I right clicked 'Computer' then properties, then it opened a window where I found the link for the Experience Index- just so anyone else knows. Much appreciated! However, another question, how do I verify which brand of hard drive I have- it must be a Western Digital as I saw a WD followed by a bunch of other numbers and letters when we looked under 'disk drives' but because I had a friends WD external connected the first time I looked I initially thought it was that- ALMOST uninstalled my hard drive because I was on the phone with tech support since the external wasn't showing up elsewhere (I have a separate thread about that). Just want to reconfirm for myself what I do have to avoid future confusion as it was not listed in that index where the rating was. Thanks again!!

    Yes, that's it exactly. Like I say, this tech was about to have me uninstall and I was like "Wait a sec, there is only one drive listed there" ..."Oh, well, then don't uninstall it" Yikes!! Just coincidence that we were troubleshooting a WD external so when I saw that I thought we'd found it but now I'm sure it is my internal. Thanks for the response!
