What RAM is installed on my machine?

Oct 31, 2007 9:12AM PDT

When I go System properties and I find that I have 1.5GB RAM installed on this machine. I would like to know how its divided? 1GB + 512MB OR 768MB + 768MB. How do I find that out?? Ideas anyone???

Thanks!

Crucial.com has a tool as well as CPUIDZ (see google.com)

and use the tool. Allow it to scan your computer for memory. It will tell you what you have and what you can add, if you want to.

That won't actually tell the OP what is in his computer.

What's wrong with pulling off the side panel?

The CPUZ program has told me enough to nail it every time. But if I'm going to add ram I never take a chance and take your advice (open it up!)

RAM does not come in 768MB sticks. Either you have four RAM slots with:

256MB
256MB
512MB
512MB

=1.5GB

Or, more likely you have

1024MB (1GB)
512MB

Sorry I just can't believe this thread took this amount of replies. Honestly. I find since I started to become avidly interesting in computing my math ability has rocketed, mainly because of being able to calculate logical RAM amounts.

Does your 8 times table wonders.
