HARDWARE INVENTORY SYSTEM AND ITS FUNCTION
Hardware inventory system is also software but it may be confusing because of what the name implies. It is software that you need to install on your computer to detect most of the hardware in your PC or Mac. It will track all working hardware devices that the system can understand it can also give additional information that the hardware inventory system cannot understand but it will show a sign of hardware detection but unknown brand or known brand but unusable.
Devices that cannot be detected by the system may not be installed correctly or it may be physically installed but it may not be detected by the computer system itself or the hardware may be physically damage or broken. You may also ask why is there a need to have a hardware inventory system installed on your computer or is it ever important at all. First and foremost it may sound odd for non techie and it may take a while to understand its importance but a hardware inventory system does not only detect the parts of your computer, technician find it easy to use this system to easily identify the reason why a certain parts of your computer and why it is not working.
For instance the sound of your computer suddenly became distorted and later on become silent, you have checked all your cable and you also checked for errors but still there is no sound.

It you see a yellow question mark that means that the system may have been installed but it is not working or it may require a driver, this is probably one of the biggest problem that even the best technicians can ever find if they found out that a certain hardware may need a driver because it is not easy to look for it over the internet.
It is not the driver who can drive a car or motorcycle, what it wants you to look for is another system that is needed to run the hardware. In our example is the sound driver, windows may detect the problem that you need a driver but it does not suggest any idea of how or where are you going to find such system.
