Getting detailed memory information from a Windows PC via CMD

When upgrades are needed, you cannot always power down machines and crack them open to see the hardware.

Below is how to view the RAM config on a Windows PC via command line.


  1. Open Command Prompt as an Administrator.
  2. Type in the following command:
    C:> wmic MEMORYCHIP

The information will look as shown below. It will be incredibly detailed such as Bank, Capacity (in Bytes), DataWidth, FormFactor, Manufacturer, PartNumber, SerialNumber, and Speed.

If you need to identify only certain items you can adjust the command to include those items as so:
C:> wmic MEMORYCHIP get BankLabel,DeviceLocator,Capacity,Tag
