Default Hardware detection program?

A friend got conned into buying an acer machine....buddy basic office system essentially. He knows nothing about computers so I'm trying to help him out with a bit for an upgrade. Right now he's running an athlon 64 3800+ with 1gb of ram, guessing its onboard video but can someone recommend a program to ID all the makes and model numbers of mobo, RAM, etc... on the comp. He doesn't know enough to open it up and find it for me and i don't want to take a trip to his place is too far away.
