    Question C# system information

    Hi, I'm trying to make a program in visual c# that displays computer information like graphics card model, graphics ram, system ram, cpu model, etc.

    Basically I have this, but it doesn't seem to work. Any help would be appreciated. If any other easier methods available please leave a comment telling me of such thanks:
    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Management;
    using System.Management.Instrumentation;
    namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
      public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
      private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        ManagementObjectSearcher searcher = 
        new ManagementObjectSearcher("Select Name from Win32_CDROMDrive");
        ManagementObjectSearcher searcher2 =
        new ManagementObjectSearcher("Select Model from Win32_BaseBoard");
        foreach(ManagementObject cdrom in searcher.Get())
        foreach (ManagementObject model in searcher2.Get())
          textBox1.Text = ("Name: " + cdrom.GetPropertyValue("Name").ToString());
          textBox2.Text = ("Name: " + model.GetPropertyValue("Model").ToString());
    I am very new to C# programming but have basic knowledge of visual basic if I can do this using that.

    Re: C# system information

    Describe what's not working? Are you seeing only the last property value? That is because you're overwriting the text in the two textboxes.
          textBox1.Text = ("Name: " + cdrom.GetPropertyValue("Name").ToString());
          textBox2.Text = ("Name: " + model.GetPropertyValue("Model").ToString());
    Maybe you mean:
          textBox1.Text += ("Name: " + cdrom.GetPropertyValue("Name").ToString());
          textBox2.Text += ("Name: " + model.GetPropertyValue("Model").ToString());
    And please use code tags.
