Is there a program that I can use to determine the maximum amount of memory a PC/Laptop can hold and also lists the type of memory?

For example if I have a Pavillion dv9000 and I input this in the program I would like the above information to show.

Is there a tool out there that does this?

Most laptops and pc's take up to 4GB of memory. This is given 32bit hardware and OS, although if both are 64bit you may use more than 4GB. Memory capacity varies from machine to machine, so check the manufacturers website. (Note that not all 4gb can be used by applications, some is 'hidden' by the system.)

to elaborate a little on Dicanio37's answer:

most commercial memory manufactuers have a "Memory Configurator" that works you through the process of determining what ram your system can take (by having you enter the model # and brand, or by downloading a program that scans your PC for that information)

The full link to the crucial memory configurator is here:
