Google search the product numbers.  Not necessarily going to get the answer, but you might.  You can also get some idea what kind of RAM it is by looking at it.  If you go to http://www.crucial.com/ and click the RAM types on the left side of the screen (PC4000, PC3200, etc), you can tell if it's DDR, DDR2, SIMM, PC66/100/133 SDRAM.  You won't be able to tell the speeds, but you will be able to figure out if it's one of those types of RAM.
Here you go Wanstor.

Have fun. (;


in many cases, the type and speed are printed on the sticks; this will give you a good indication on what computer models you can use them. also if it is sdram or ddr will tell you on what boards you can use them.
