If I want to check a system's hardware like hard disk capacity, RAM etc...Is it better to check in CMOS settings or in "System Information"?

Is there any possibility to manipulate the System information data that comes with Windows?

Sometimes the memory amount listed under 'System Information' may not reflect the physical memory in the machine (Related to using having more memory than the 32-bit OS can handle - If you are running a 32-bit OS)

I'd recommend cpu-z - A freeware utility that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. CPU-Z does not need to be installed.
