I just use Belarc !!
[ Yes i know its cheating.... ]
Was just curious how you would go abouts doing a script that outputs something like so :
Total of 4 memory slots
Slot 1 - 512 Mb Kingston PC3200 DDR
Slot 2 - Empty
Slot 3 - 512 Mb Kingston PC3200 DDR
Slot 4 - Empty
I know you use WMI and the Win32_ComputerSystem class but am not sure how to do it to something similiar above so it tells you how much ram is in each memory slot and what type , make, model of ram etc.
Me too. Belarc's a great little utility. We run it on all PCs - mainly so we can record what the config is of each PC and what apps are installed. It's handy because it also shows the licence/product keys.
I know about belarc, SIW and everest ( home and ultimate edition ) But was just wondering how to do this in vbscript with regards to the memory.
just checking on that website
"License: The license associated with this product allows for free personal use only. Use on multiple PCs in a corporate, educational, military or government installation is prohibited. See the license agreement for details. "
what do you use it for?
I have OCSNG running on our network and this is one of the things it logs.
i was referring to Belarc software, it is free, but not to use in an educational environmnet...

Scriptomatic (see Bizzel's link) can get the basic info (use the Win32_PhysicalMemory class).
Not sure if it will give you manufacturer and speed (I don't collect them; only the number and size)
We push this into a SQL database so we can see what's where.
You can also use GPInventory from Microsoft. Yes it's a GUI and you want it scripted, but someone might find it useful GPinventory's range of queries can be extended by adding more WMI classes/queries into xml settings files.
Here's my xml file for physical memory:
