Might sound dumb, but this is my work pc, which is pants incidentally, so don't know when it was purchased, and I'm told I can have shiny, new one if mine is over 3 years old. IT not being helpful, does my pc know how old it is, and if so, where can I find it? Thanks
well you can get a rough idea, assuming that the operating system has not been reinstalled or a newer version installed, bassically if the pc is as it was when new.
Right click on 'My Computer', go to properties and then in the 'General' tab look at 'system' (it should say what operating system you have ie: 'Windows XP version 2002') and see what the date is when registered (like above 2002).
