There are two options:
1. Either make a DOS bootable medium and use HWiNFO for DOS, or
2. Make a WinPE bootable medium and use HWiNFO32

Thanks for the reply

will HWiNFO for DOS reveal any issues, heat, noise etc?

It can report sensor information, but ehm, noise? Wink It is also no longer maintained, so it doesn't support later systems.

sensor info?
Hehe noise- I meant will it stress test the components to reveal heat issues which would make the fans noisy.
If I run this dos program will I still be taking the risk of the PC being faulty?

This is the used pc
