To reveal a bit more information on your CPU, we've found this neat little trick (for Intel-based machines).



It starts with opening your Registry key using Regedit. Here's how:



1. On the Start menu, click Run.

2. Type REGEDIT and then click OK.

3. Follow this path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Hardware\Description\System\CentralProcessor\0.


4. Click VendorIdentifier and put a space between "Genuine" and "Intel" and then close Regedit.

5. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Properties.



There is now a bit more information about your computer listed underneath the 'Genuine Intel' line. You'll see that your CPU comes from the "x86 Family A Model B Stepping (version) C," where A, B, and C represent the appropriate values in your system. This same information is now available in the Identifier line on the path, two rows above in the Registry. When you restart Windows Me, the default information will be restored.
