I have a windows computer setup with eye tracking and we are narrowing down a specific issue.

What is the most comprehensive way to give you the specs of the computer without shipping it to you?

For any of the methods below, please save it as a pdf or a screenshot or as a txt file, and email it to [email protected].

Easiest Method


Press Windows Key, and type msinfo32 then press Enter. Then click File > Export.... It will take a minute or two while it refreshes some things, but it is comprehensive and looks good.

Or if you have a pdf printer installed, do File > Print
