    So, at work I'm having to inventory every component in our workstations, i.e. memory, hard drive, video card, floppy drive. With serial numbers. Is there a program out there that I can run on the workstation that will spit something out with all this information, without having to open up all the workstations. The big issue is I have about 50 of the them.

    I used to have to do this for the AF, I just created a small database in access to track everything. If your equipment doesnt do a lot of moving around, I would say you could even get away with using a simple spreadsheet in excel.

    If they're running Windows, you can run: msinfo32 as a start. No serial numbers that I'm aware of, but it'll give you a list of all the devices that the OS is aware of.
    Probably not a complete solution but it's free, will get you started, and it sure beats pulling open 50 boxes. :D
