I have had the Crucial scanner give me erroneous information two times on two different computers. Recommendation by M$ is enough to make me shy away from it anyway:rolleyes:.

On that same Crucial site, rather than scanning your computer, there is the option to manually select the computer make and model to obtain the memory information. That has always worked accurately for me.

You can also try Everst and CPU-Z:

http://www.lavalys.com/
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

Both programs will display information about your ram modules under the SPD tabs.

In my opinion though, the best way to know what kind of RAM you have installed is to physically identify it. Most RAM modules will have data printed on the chip or a sticker. Easy job and you can't go wrong that way...

Why not just open the case and look?

Software apps that scan the system are fine however nothing replaces the Mark I mod 0 eyeball.
Note the speed and part# should be on a sticker attached to the ram.
