Hi,

can't tell from that screenshot. Perhaps posting the output of "fdisk -l" would be better.

Cheers,

Evo2.

I'd add to the above that the output of "cat /proc/cpuinfo" ought to give you the true CPU information. The benchmarking software may just be reading a specific string or number from your CPU and basing the name on that.

Hi,

those screen shots seem to indicate that you have two ATA hard drives but they don't provide information about disk or partition sizes. As I already suggested you can run "fdisk -l" to get that information.

You need to run fdisk -l as root or sudo in Mint as was suggested.
Example on what I am posting from

Code:
 $ sudo fdisk -l

Did you actually read what you quoted? AFAIK, the only question you've asked so far is for confirmation about what size disks you have. I've twice now told you the command to find out. Here it is a third time:
Code:
fdisk -l

That gives me nothing

frank@frank ~ $ fdisk -l
frank@frank ~ $

Only $fdisk


Usage:
fdisk [options] <disk> change partition table
fdisk [options] -l <disk> list partition table(s)
fdisk -s <partition> give partition size(s) in blocks

Options:
-b <size> sector size (512, 1024, 2048 or 4096)
-c[=<mode>] compatible mode: 'dos' or 'nondos' (default)
-h print this help text
-u[=<unit>] display units: 'cylinders' or 'sectors' (default)
-v print program version
-C <number> specify the number of cylinders
-H <number> specify the number of heads
-S <number> specify the number of sectors per track

He wants you to read what is on your screen... (see red above)

EDIT -

And per the next post, I guess you do that as root on your system.

So try this...

Code:
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb

OR

su

fdisk -l /dev/sdb

What do you mean by "need"? Do you mean is it being used for something important? If so then, that screen shot does not provide that information. To see what disks/partitions are being used you can use df. Eg
Code:
df -h
The output of "mount" may also provide useful information
(root not needed for these commands).
