finding total RAM

10 posts in this topic

I first want to say sorry for my last post.  I was a little paniced about loosing my files didn't want to redo the last few programs I made.  I know better to say about decompiling EXEs.

I am now trying to recode some stuff and so I am trying to figure out how to find the RAM in a PC or Laptop.  The built in gives me what is available but that is not what the BIOS is telling me.  Also I have been trying to use the Scriptomatic stuff, but I can't seem to find what I am looking for.

Example.  I have a Dell gx755 that the BIOS says it has 4 one gig RAM sticks.  How do I get Autoit to tell me, you have 4 gigs of RAM?

Have you tried MemGetStats?


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Will this help?

Local $FindMem = MsgBox(64, "Memory is", _GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory() & " Ram")

Func _GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory() ; author = guinness
Local $aRet = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory", "uint64*", "")
If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)
Return $aRet[1] / 1024
EndFunc   ;==>_GetPhysicallyInstalledSystemMemory

:bye: MSDN is your friend. The AU3 documentation (help file) is the other friend. Google for that function and MSDN pages will be the top results.

I learned a lot about wmi with the command line version "wmic". Between Google, Microsoft TechNet, and trying many different commands it became very enlightening. Even had it output html so I could view it in a browser.

Thanks for all the suggestions on where to go.

I can make it work in windows 7 but it doesn't work in XP.  Yes, we still have to make it work in XP.  Is there a different dll call that I can use?
