3.1.2 Determining a PC's hardware and chip set

During installation, one will be asked to identify the hardware or chip set of the PC. Sometimes that information may not seem easy to find. Here is one method:

  • Open your PC's case and look inside.

  • Record the product ID codes on the large chips on the graphics card, network card, chip near serial ports, chip near IDE ports.

  • Record card names printed on the back of the PCI and ISA cards.
