People come into the shop, asking if they can do a memory ungrades, I go to system-right click, property and see how much ram is there but that does not tell me what type of ram, nor how many slots to play with, short of opening up the box what can I do?

As far as I know, there is no way to tell what type of RAM the PC uses without opening up the case.

If the people who bring in their PC know what type of motherboard they have, you can find out what type of RAM the motherboard uses (and I think how many slots there are) at Crucial's website. Otherwise, you'll have to open up the case to look at the motherboard, which would be useless since you could just look at the RAM while you have the case open.

If it's a storebought PC, likely they can find out what type of motherboard it has in the manual. If it's a home built PC, the customers might know what type of motherboard it is.
