I have a Dell Dimension 9200 that I bought 4 years ago. I want to find out the exact specifications (manufacturer, speed, timings, etc.). Is there a way to get this specific info without having to open up the PC (it's buried in and under a bunch of furniture, I'd perfer not to have to dig it out).

All I know about it right now is that it is 4 1GB sticks of DDR2 RAM at 667 Mhz. It is the standard RAM that shipped with the computer 4 years ago (from Dell). Does anyone know what the specifications are of the RAM that Dell used in this particular model of computer 4 years ago?

Note: I've done my research before coming here. CPU-Z, EVEREST, and AIDA32 all have been unable to give me any more information other than 4 x 1GB @ 667Mhz. I can't find any specifications in the Dell online manuals either (at least not as specific as I want).

Thanks

It looks like System Information for Windows should give you the information you need. Their memory screenshot page looks like it has all the timing, manufacturer, etc. information http://www.gtopala.com/siw-hardware/memory.html

SIW is available as a free portable or installable download, down at the bottom of http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html

Definitely an awesome tool! I would highly recommend it. –  nhinkle Nov 1 '10 at 7:49
    
Very nice, thank you very much! It displays all the exact specifications of the RAM. A side question, if the memory summery section says that i have single bit ECC, is that that my motherboard supports ECC or that my RAM has it on? –  Faken Nov 2 '10 at 0:52

Find the Service Tag, go to Dell support and click on Drivers & Download, click on the option to "Choose by Service Tag", enter your service tag (printed on a label on your Dell). On the drivers page that opens, on the left hand side under Product Support there is a link to go to System Configuration. This will give you a list of what type's fitted.

OR

If you're not happy with the info there then another option is to go to Kingston Memory or Crucial Memory website and enter the make/model in their memory selector list.

+1. I've had good luck with Dell support providing good hardware information on machines with unknown configurations. –  Zoot Nov 1 '10 at 16:53
    
I'm assuming you mean URL shortening services. You could still html-ize your links by using the Hyperlink button or do [Example](http://example.com). People can see the links by hovering over them or tabbing to them. –  Dennis Williamson Nov 1 '10 at 16:59
