    Is my RAM expandable?

    I used to have a program from sevenforums that was a very thorough system info tool. Not the one called "System info". The background I believe was black, it had the temp, etc very nice. anyone know where I can get that?

    My question is this, I have an HP pavilion elite 64 bit with 8gb RAM on Windows 8 pro. When I look at the properties of my computer, it generally says how much RAM, and how much it is expandable to. I do not see that now in windiws 8. Where can I view if it is expandable andwill it also tell me if there are 2 4gb sticks or what because I am goign to go up to 16gb if it can take it but I can not find it. My pc is at home so I cannot ge the model number or else I would have checked HP first.

    What's the exact model of your Pavilion?

    Try AIDA64 (Trial) to see how many slots you have (normally 2) and how many are populated.

    Anyways I guess you can go 2x8GB...

    Go to and download the system scanner. You don't have to install it. It's a portable program that runs by itself. It will tell you your system specs and RAM configuration.
