    For hardware failures-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager.

    PC Wizard 2008 is good for hardware info.

    There's a bunch of tools for that stuff. I'll list what I usually use..

    RAM testing: Memtest86+ (Run this for at least 2 hours)
    CPU testing: Stress Prime (Run this for at least 2 hours)
    GPU testing: ATITool (artifact scanning)
    HDD testing: HDTune (error scanning)
    Hardware info: PCWizard

    Everything above is completely free.
    I've been using them for years and they are all safe to use without getting hit by malware. Hope it helps!
