How Much RAM Do I Have (Windows 10)
Slow and steady wins the race. I have heard about this phrase quite of the time and clearly felt it is true. But this patience runs out if you are working on an important project on your laptop. That slow speed at work leads to frustration and not to forget an inability in work. Of course, such things happen especially on some very important days.
These are generally due to symptoms of low ram availability in your system. You may think of many major issues in your mind but the simple reason behind this is storage issues, low availability of ram slots.

Furthermore, Let’s see how to use these commands:
- Checking RAM details using WMIC command
- Get RAM details using systeminfo command
Checking RAM details using WMIC command
1. Type CMD in the Start Menu and select the first result you get.
2. A Command Prompt window will open.
Type a command to have complete information about your system’s RAM.

3. Further, press Enter after writing the command.
4. The three columns will be shown in front of you.
- BankLabel column will tell you which slots the RAM chips are installed in.
- Capacity columns will tell you how large each module is expressed in bytes.
- DeviceLocator is another entity to tell which slots the RAM chips are installed in.
5. You can also get the MemoryType and TypeDetail column for your RAM to get some extra detail of your RAM.
For this enter the following command.
wmic MEMORYCHIP get BankLabel, DeviceLocator, MemoryType, TypeDetail, Capacity, Speed
MemoryType tells you the type of physical memory.
