    I don't know what kind it is. I know the amount, but not the type. I wanted to know because I need to upgrade it so I can play BIOSHOCK!

  3. Uh, type? I always thought you just went into Control Panel, clicked on Performance and Maintenence, and then System.

    But then again, that just tells you how many gigs you have.

    Type of RAM, huh?

    Typically your best bet is to either go to your manufacturer's website, or physically check. (As in pull the ram stick out and see) Those are the only two ways I can think of right now.

    You could try using SiSoftware Sandra. In the Computer Overview scan, it tells you how much memory you have along with what type. For example, mine says 639MB DDR-SDRAM. You can get it here.

    Try bestbuy.com and click on "memory advisor" or whatever it is called and you type in the make & model of your computer and it will list your memory and all the upgrades available for your computer
