Print a list of all hardware on system

Is there some way to print a list of all of my hardware? Ubuntu has a Device Manager program that displays it on screen, but most devices are "Vendor: Unknown" "Device: Unknown" and I can't print from here.

Open a console and run "sudo lspci" (minus the quotes), that will print a list on screen of your hardware. Also "man lspci" will give you other switches to increase the output of lspci.

If that doesn't provide everything you need, check out a program named 'hwinfo' (available on Debian mirrors if Ubuntu doesn't have it). It'll give you enough info to make your head swim.
