Hi Guys,

I'm trying to upgrade memory on my computer. The main problem is ... I want to know what type of memory I have on my computer. All I know is I have 256MB, however, dont know the specifications.
Is there any software or website where I can run a test on my computer to know Memory specifications?
Please suggest!

If you want to recommend me to open computer case and look on the RAM Module, I have already done that. I cudnt get much info cuz someone ripped the info sticky :thumbsup:

Please, is there any software ?

Thanks & Regards,
Silvia.

Hi at5147,

Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded Belarc software and installed it. Its a very nice software to get information for what kind of hard drive, grafix card, etc. However, for Memory all I got is:

256 Megabytes Installed Memory

Slot '0' has 256 MB
Slot '1' is Empty
Slot '2' is Empty
Slot '3' is Empty

Which means, I need some other software that can give me information about RAM .. like .. DDR SDRAM DDR2 and more and more .. (I have no idea about this RD SD DD and 133MHZ ..

Thanks & Regards,
Silvia.

If this is a manufactured computer, try http://www.crucial.com/ and use their memory configurator. You just plug in the make and model of your system and it'll tell you what memory is compatible.

They have great service, a great guarantee, and reasonable prices. I use them for all my memory purchases.

If you want a benchmark utility on your computer that will tell you exactly what is in your machine - even to the brand - download Everest V1.51 from oldversion.com.

Everest Home Edition (the successor of AIDA32) is a system information and benchmarking tool with full hardware & software information available as freeware for the individual user. It comes with a built-in hardware database and physical information for CPU, motherboard, hard disks, optical drives, chipset and much more. The information can be displayed on-screen, printed, or saved as a report in HTML or text format. The built in diagnostics module can help you find potential problems, by highlighting them in the report and also includes links to manufacturers web sites, driver updates and more. An easy to use report wizard allows you to create detailed reports in the format of your choice.

Get version 1.51 which is the last freeware version that includes the software module which lists all software installed on your computer and provides all the license key numbers a great tool which has been deleted from all successive freeware versions.

Download here from the Utilities section:
http://www.oldversion.com
