  1. A friend of mine is looking into buying some Ram for his computer but dosent know what kind of Ram his motherboard supports how could I find out what Type and Speed of Ram as well as maximum ram his motherboard supports, this is also helpful to me as Im in the market for more Ram as well, despite I know Im using 184pin DDR SDRAM PC2700 I do not know the maximum ram capacity for my motherboard all I do know is that my board has 2 ram slots but not how much memory it can support

    Use system information for windows (SIW) to determine the model and maker of your motherboard. then go to the makers website and look up the spec's on that motherboard.

    you can download SIW here..

    Another way is to check your motherboards manuals ot open the case and check what model and search the internet. Do you know what board you have?
