I just posted about this in the forum section. I am looking for the type of RAM I have and there does not seem to be anywhere, not in the BIOS settings or in Device Manager that has that information. In my case, I even opened the box but the stick had no sticker on it or anything. If like me, you do not have any information because you "inherited" the computer and want to upgrade, it would sure be nice to have an easy place like Device Manager to find that info out. You can see what type of sound hardware you have and the network card ~ why can't you see the type of RAM? Plus it would sure make it a lot easier to upgrade if you knew that, since it is one of the easiest upgrades you can do that improves performance.

Just a thought.

I posted this in the other forum section too.. but it's probably useful for anybody looking for a similar app.


Here's what you want... System Information for Windows

It'll give you loads of good information about your computer, and most likely the memory type as well.

Also check out CPU-Z at

It's a small, free, standalone program (requires no installation),
and definitely gives you detailed memory information from
each module's SPID, including vendor, type, size, timings,
part number and serial number.

Plus there's detailed info about your CPU and motherboard.
