5 Ways to Know your Systems Uptime

Posted by Shailendra Doke | Mar 31, 2008


Uptime is a measure of the time a computer system has been "up" and running.

The system uptime is very important for system administrators. Many times normal users like to keep the track of their PC.

Here I am showing 5 ways (Some Commands and Some Very Small and Free Utilities) to know How long has Your System been Running without Reboot.

  • Using systeminfo command

The systeminfo command tells us all about a computer system. Here you can get the system uptime as well as the original date and time of the OS installation. This command works on Windows XP Pro. Not tested in XP Home (Some users said it wont work in XP Home).

  1. Click on Start > Run
  2. Type CMD (Will open Command Terminal)
  3. Type systeminfo
  4. Find system uptime there, you will also get install date and time above the uptime
