Written by Admin on. Posted in Software

ASTRA32 3.13 Freeware ASTRA32 is a lightweight cross-platform utility designed to give you detailed information about your computer hardware. The GUI is clean and intuitive, and gives users the possibility to view system information about the processor (CPU clock), motherboard (system name, BIOS version, vendor), memory (memory size, memory module), storage (HDD model and size, CD/DVD model and speed), video (vendor, model), sound (sound chip), operating system, network (name, adapter name and description), and ports. ASTRA32 provides details about the processor, namely CPU (e.g. temperature, FSB clock, core voltage, signature), lets you view which features are supported by the processor (e.g. debugging extension, time stamp counter, page attribute table, direct cache access), as well examine the cache properties, BIOS features, and boot options. Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to view useful data about PCI/AGP devices, memory modules, logical drives, USB devices, printers, and network. Plus, the hardware monitoring option displays the temperature core, system bus clock, FSB clock, and HDD temperature, while the diagnostic feature informs you about the HDD health status, controller revision, buffer size, and others. Furthermore, ASTRA32 comprises a list with the programs that are installed on the computer. You can select the details to be included in the reports and save them to plain text, HTML, INI, XML, or CSV file format. You don’t need special computer skills for working with this tool, as the application scans the computer and automatically displays the detailed information in the primary panel. All in all, ASTRA32 offers you comprehensive details about hardware and displays a list with the devices whose drivers are not properly installed.
Not only does ASTRA32 provide a detailed analysis of your system it also offers diagnostics and comes with some powerful unique features such as a Drivers Troubleshooter and a quick HDD Health Status checker. You will appreciate the accuracy with which ASTRA32 acquires the information about the detected devices as it mostly refers directly to the hardware not to the Windows Registry. ASTRA32 uncovers even undocumented data. You can be sure that the obtained information about the computer hardware and device operational modes is precise irrespective of the installed drivers. ASTRA32 has a unique feature (Drivers Troubleshooter) that allows searching for all physical devices and creates a list of all devices whose drivers are not properly installed or completely missing. ASTRA32 will also test your hard drive for reliability and work out the diagnosis using a unique algorithm. With the Quick HDD Health Status checker function, you will always know if your hard drive is OK or if it is time to create a backup. Be aware of all contingencies. ASTRA32 works even with hard drives plugged in to external UDMA/SATA controllers. Others features of the program include a built-in report wizard and an ability to work in a batch mode, which supports the use of report profiles and macros. The program can create reports in one of the following formats: TXT, INI, HTML, XML, CSV. With ASTRA32, you will quickly have complete information about your whole computer system. The benefits for PC repair technicians and system administrators are obvious. You can also download Portable ASTRA32.
