take a screenshot using the Snipping tool built into Windows since Windows 7.

save it as a .JPG.

then in the forum, you'll see More Reply Options in the bottom right when making a post.

there you can attach your file.

mine shows Computer Type: Desktop when ran normally.

it show Computer Type: Virtual when ran from within VMWare Workstation.

 

dumb question - you're not in a virtual machine are you?

I'm also wondering if Speccy (or WMI) interrogates the VT setting in BOIS?

(I'll have to reboot the PC to find my setting)

 

 

 

Update

OK, I have Intel Virtualisation Technology Disabled and VT-d Enabled.

Once I disabled the Intel Virtualization Technology in the BIOS, it now shows Computer Type: Tablet.  

 

I am not on a tablet or virtual machine.

 

Do you know where Speccy gets this information from?  Looked in msinfo, systeminfo, and registry.  Is it getting its information from the BIOS?

 

Thanks for your help.

Speccy heavily relies on talking to WMI to get a lot of what it displays.

But the computer type, or chassis type isn't something WMI covers so I'm not sure where/how it determines your Computer Type.
