Hey guys and gals,

I am very puzzled, I know how much RAM I have in my PC but I do not know what TYPE of RAM I have, I need to find out because a family member is going to be buying me some. Is there any way of finding out what type of RAM I have without opening up my computer, pulling out the RAM stick i have in there at the moment and seeing?

Thanks for your help,

You can also go to Start>Run>DXDIAG to check how much RAM you have.
