Full name


Dmidecode reports information about your system's hardware as described in your system BIOS according to the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag as well as a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots (e.g. AGP, PCI, ISA) and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports (e.g. serial, parallel, USB). Beware that DMI data have proven to be too unreliable to be blindly trusted. Dmidecode does not scan your hardware, it only reports what the BIOS told it to. Three additional tools come with dmidecode: •biosdecode prints all BIOS related information it can find •ownership retrieves the "ownership tag" that can be set on Compaq computers •vpddecode prints the "vital product data" information that can be found in almost all IBM computers This MS-Windows port is based on the patches created by Hugo Weber <>. It works only on MS-Windows NT systems (NT, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008) and not on MS-Windows 9x systems (95, 98, ME).
