How to check your PC's RAM

#1
In some cases, you need to know the exact RAM specifications of your computer when checking recommended video game system requirements, when buying a new RAM, or if you want to buy the same model of RAM that you have.

Here are some general and common ways to check the RAM of your device.

Option 1: Check through Computer Properties.

For Windows 8 or later, right-click the This PC -> Properties icon. Similarly, on Windows 7 and earlier, go to Start -> right-click My Computer or right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop and select Properties to check the specs.

Method 4: Use the CPU-Z software.
You can go here to download this software for installation and use for the machine.

After installation is complete, please restart the CPU-Z software- > select the Memory tab to check the RAM on the computer.

CPU-Z shows more specific RAM parameters. For example, in this RAM specifications above it shows:

- Type: RAM (DDR3).

- Size: RAM is 8GB.

- DRAM Frequency: RAM speed is 671.2 MHz.

These are some of the simplest and most common ways to check your PC's RAM and some other hardware information.

I hope this guide is useful. Good luck! :)

Very easy and simple.
Should do this when trying out new laptopts at the stores and make sure they are what they say they are.
This was one of the first things I learned as a kid.
Checking out specifics of computers.
I was always looking for a computer with bigger RAM than graphics.
Do you need a lot of RAM on your computer ?
