If you have a desktop computer or a laptop that runs on Microsoft Windows, the easiest way to know the amount of physical RAM installed on your system is from Microsoft DirectX. Click “Start” then in the search box type without quotes “dxdiag” then click it from the result. If you have Windows XP, click “Start,” “Run” then type without quotes “dxdiag” then hit Enter.

Run dxdiag

This will launch the Microsoft DirectX Diagnostic Tool. On the DirectX Diagnostic Tool screen, in “System” tab under “System Information”, you should see the total amount of memory installed on your computer indicated in the “Memory” label. If you have like 2 GB RAM, you should see something like “2046MB RAM.”

Aside from the physical RAM, this tab will also display the information about your operating system, default language, computer name, motherboard manufacturer, motherboard model, processor, page file or swap file, and the Microsoft DirectX version.
