Hardware Identification Number for what hardware. If you right click my computer> properties>hardware> device manager click on the device in question, it will give you some information. But what software!, I;m curious because most softwares have incorporated the necessary tool to go and get what they want. You can maybe download a free trial of SiSoft Sandra from www.zdnet.com
and go and get all the information you need about your computer; but;;; which software would need to have the HID and cannot get it itself. Is this a game?
