This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Open the dash. Then, search for Terminal. Open it. (It may be called Terminal Emulator).

Wait for a pronpt that looks like user@computer:~$. Then, type:

sudo lshw

and press Enter.

You will be prompted for your password. Give it(the space will remain blank, not even ******), and press Enter. If the password is correct, the command will return results after a delay that can sometimes take a few minutes. You know it's finished when you see the user@computer:~$ prompt again.
