Notes About a dxdiag

In simple terms, when someone asks for your "DxDiag" file, they are asking about your computer's information. Also known as Specifications.

This is information such as it's processor, speed, memory, video card, hard drive, and other hardware, etc. It is used to help troubleshoot issues you might be having with your computer. It can be saved as a text file and shared by attaching it to a message, email or uploaded to a file sharing site such as drop box.
