how do i get information about the cpu without writing any code (CPUID yuck!)
are there any tools in windows that give full information about cpu?
there could be some 3rd party tools, but are there any shipped with windows XP?

What type of information are you after? Instruction set supported? Max clock speed? Required voltage levels? Cache size? Physical pin connections?

It depends on what you want to know.

But a nice app is here, it may be what you want.

well 3rd party tools i would rather wish to avoid.
if a person has written such a low level tool he can do anything to my system. Sad
so if there is a way within windowsXP to find such info then please tell me.

for example on Linux this simple command:

cat /pro/cpuinfo

gives me enough info about the CPU. that's how much i want to know about my CPU.

you open your computer, look what is your cpu
seek for a datasheet about your cpu
now, you know what you want to know about your cpu.

Are you suggesting that CPU-Z is a virus or similar? I promise I would not post a link to virus infected things.

Perhaps you can post the output you get. Not having LINUX that means nothing to me.

In start/control panel/system there is some very basic info about the CPU and RAM. I have never seen any other inbuilt tool that would provide more than that. If you need more I think your only choice is a 3rd party tool.

well the output contains processor name, type, speed, cache size, and bugs if
present, and mmx, sse, 3dnow, and many more if available or not.

You find out the type of CPU (i.e. family, model, etc) then search for it on the internet. Maybe this website could be of some help.

You've got an Athlon XP 1700+.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K7/TYPE-Athlon%20XP.html

It supports MMX, 3DNow!, Extended 3DNow!, and SSE. (No SSE{2,3,4,...})

What else do you need to know?

on all electronic components there are a code, the reference

when enter the reference in the seek tool of the manufacturer
normally it works.

for exemple, the dual opamp TL 082 ( my favourite, cheap, easy to use, low distortion )
the reference is TL 082
on memory chips it's the same, and finally, on ┬ÁP it's the same

or simply use the aida32 tool

the info displayed by "cat /proc/cpuinfo" is enough for me. that's
how much i wanted to know. but i was looking
for something within windowsXP itself that could display
similar info Rolling Eyes
and by the way that info is not about my computer. my computer is XP only.
and the output is from another systme running
ubuntu linux Wink

i used matrix's utility. it's enough of info. thanks matrix. and thank hypervista for giving the link.

PS: i didn't read the code before running it. it's way too long and too complex Sad
i hope he is a nice guy. ensure me you didn't put any virus on my XP Confused

More likely, you should doublecheck that it didn't put XP on your virus. Laughing
