    Question How to tell Max Ram per slot?

    HI all,
    how can I tell what the maximum ram per slot is?
    I have tried:
    Code:
    sudo lshw
    Which shows :
    *-memory
    description: System Memory
    physical id: 2f
    slot: System board or motherboard
    size: 768MiB
    capacity: 3GiB

    is capacity per slot or total?
    -Yes, Im aware I can prolly look it up on the motherboard manufacturer's website, I am just wondering if theres a way to get detailed specs on my hardware.

    I think you would have to go to the web site of the company that made your Motherboard, Look up the specs on the Motherboard it should tell you what type and max size.

    I hate to say it, but Microsoft has programs that can do this. What I have is a several labs, and class rooms with a variety of hardware searching out each manufacturer will be tedious.

    capacity: 3GiB = total

    size: 768MiB = add sizes of number of occupied banks
