Respect user privacy and don't get such information from them.

You can't

Well you could if you had an application running on the client PC which your server could connect to. You could instead send the information from the client to to the server, for this ActiveX is one option.

HAHAHA, ActiveX is not something you simply say here see these three, five lines of code and then you understand it, ActiveX is a ton load of trouble and requires a lot of effort on your part to get to work correctly and reliably. If you still want to do this Google ActiveX to find educational resources.

yes sir u r right...
The information you are referring to requires privileged access on the client computer, a web page running on a browser does not have the required security permissions as it will be running in a sandbox for privacy and security reasons.

So it cannot be done with or any other server side language.
