I remember using some type of diagnostic system that read my entire PC (on my Pavilion PC) a long time ago and told me what hardware and software I had on it. I am interested in finding out exactly how much memory I have and in what form, as in how many DIMMs and what size or amount each without having to take all the cables and wires off and open it up? I would like to order more memory online, as I seem to remember, when I had the case open about two weeks ago, that I only had one DIMM installed, but I didn't see how much was on it.
I only want to have to open my PC once to put in a couple upgrades after they arrive. When I ran that program on my Pavilion p6610f Desktop PC it showed me that I had 4GB memory installed in 2 DIMMs and also showed the maximum allowed which was 16GB (4 x 4GB) DIMMs cost a lot more now than they did back then!! Whoa!! But, I also remember that I wore my PC out and it ran hotter than it should because I had so many Doc's Pic's and Videos on it with very little memory and the Drive was full.
I would also like to know, if I had the maximum memory allowed, 16GB 4x4 , would that help to make my PC run faster and with fewer glitches? I just got through transferring my entire Document folder (a lot!) and Picture folder (a whole bunch!) to a USB Flash drive to try to help that.
I still have not had the nerve to install the new Video Card I bought, but will attempt it at the same time as installing the memory.
Sheesh! Sorry for my long winded ramble here . Basically, I came to ask if the program or diagnostic check, to tell me what I have on board, still exists??
You can find the information in many different places. I suggest typing System Information in the search box. This will take you to the System Information page for your computer. Also, here are some other documents that will help you:
