Is there a way to detect what the back of your computer contains with software?

I could've sworn I opened something yesterday and it displayed the back of my computer, you know, identifying all the ports and such?

The reason I ask is because I thought I had an HDMI port, but it may be mini, so I'd like to know for sure.

Why don't you just look? There's only 2 places it could be, depending on whether you have a graphics card or not.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

...Why not just look. I'm sure you know what an HDMI port looks like.

your manual should have a description of the ports, or you can look online at the manufacturer's site.

Google the motherboard model if it was a build you did yourself, that'd be the easiest way. Make sure you know what revision of board it is, since sometimes the externals are different.

/edit: or the video card model, if you're just concerned about the HDMI port.

I don't know the difference, and it looks slightly different. I've no clue what it is.

Also, I'm not connecting it directly to my GPU.
