Is there ne s/w to know How much RAM can a system support?

I mean How can I know that how much RAM my motherboard supports?

There should be some s/w, which can tell us after detecting the system h/w that how much RAM we can install successfully?


the best place to look for that would be the motherboard's manual. most cases u can download from manufacturer's website.

Sometimes, its not as easy as that. Some particularly less recent motherboards used to support amount of RAMs with different ram frequency. My old i845GBV did have something like that.
So it is safe to visit your motherboard's support page online.


its depends on Mobo---- now a days its upto 4 GB and more. my mobo supports upto 2 GB. you can find it in the mobo manual
