How can you check the wattage on your power supply without taking the computer apart? Is there a program or something that can find the wattage?

(1) It might be listed in your Computer Specification Sheet?. .

(2) If you have MFG Name & Model Number- You could "GOOGLE" - and look for [REVIEWS] - They sometimes (?) are very good - - -Try to get a review HIT from PC Mag or some [Named] / [NOTED] Review Source -

(3) Also go MFG Web Page & BROWSE your Model Number

(4) You probably do not have to open PC in too much detail to look at Power Unit - The label should be fairly easy to spot. Just get Name & Model Number - then "GOOGLE" - Usually Wattage is embedded in Part Number.

No - Everest Home Edition does not -

(1) - It has a [SENSOR] Section that measures Voltages

(2) - It has a DMI Section that has a sub-section named [CHASSIS] that does not contain any real/useful info

(3) - It has a [POWER MANAGEMENT] Section that Tells you very little

Now Everest will give you a report on Motherboard:
1- MFG
2- Model
3- CPU
4- RAM

It will name your OS & SP installed

What is PC info:
1- MFG & NAME
2- MODEL NUMBER
3- TYPE- DESKTOP -TOWER-LAPTOP
4- Motherboard MFG
5- Motherboard Model
6- CPU MFG - TYPE - MODEL NUMBER

Why do you want to know Wattage - ??
