Locating information about hardware from Axis Systems computers
smr2500 Feb-06-01 07:51 PM
Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone information on where I could get specs for an Axis Systems computer purchased in May of 1999? The company seems to no longer be taking calls of any kind, and I need to find out what modem, video card, sound card, etc. are installed because I need to reinstall drivers.

Or is this stuff easily identified if I open up the back of the computer. I'm a novice, and I don't want to mess things up any more than I have.

Axis Systems (http://www.axissys.com/) web site was not easy to find and I did not see anything useful on the site. Besides, many smaller manufacturers often change components in a computer without changing the specs. You may be able to determine what is in the box from any CDs or floppies that came with the system. Info on the video card might be displayed when the computer is first turned-on. Use the Pause key to stop the screen. Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information, Components may have the info. Also, look in Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager, and in Modems in the control Panel. Finally, pull the boards and see if they are identifiable. Many are not, but you can often use the FCC ID # number to track them down; see http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/mb/det.htm for a how to on that subject. Larry

i somtimes use a little program called pcitree which i found at www.windrivers.com.
you just run the program and it gives you details of any card on the pci bus even if you haven't got the driver for it.

hope this helps

Was scanning around and saw your old post. Our company bought most of the hardware from Axis when they went out of business and the owner of our company was the former production manager. We can get you whatever you need at good prices as well as repair or upgrade you cheaper than anyone else out there because of our familiarity with the Axis System hardware. Let me know if we can help. Thanks.
