I am currently developing a program that detects details of the currently installed memory in a PC (Windows only), using WMI. However, WMI does not always contain enough information to identify the installed memory modules.

I would like to be able to read the information contained in the SPD (Serial Presence Detect) chip. From my searches today, I understand that access is gained via the SMBus ... but that is the limit of my knolwedge!

Does anyone have any guidance, sample code, links to API's or any other useful information?
