Find the Dell service tag ident and then plug this into the Dell website to lookup the system, that might tell you.

  • Will tell you what the server shipped with, not necessarily what's in there now, though. Kind of a major problem in a large environment. Feb 14, 2013 at 21:50
  • True, although I finding that generally among a lot of companies they order and don't change. If they every upgrade memory, it is about at the end of the warranty period (3 years) and just get a new computer instead of doing the upgrade.

  • I think I will go with this solution, thank you very much. For reference here is the url : support.euro.dell.com/support/DPP/… Feb 15, 2013 at 8:22

Use the diagnostic program called "Speccy.Exe"


Download the free version "Speccy.exe". It will install

Then run the program. It detects huge details of your system including the memory type!
