|You can only see all the hardware in Windows Device Manager or by running the Windows "System Information" tool:|
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information
Obviously you need to have Windows running to do that.
To get a full hardware list without using Windows you must boot from a third-party CD which has a DOS system information tool on it. You cannot see it just by pressing a key on the keyboard. You need this or something similar:
Active@ Boot Disk: http://www.boot-disk.com/order.htm
You can find more boot discs like that by using Google Search.
Some of them are freeware.
