Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a vbscript that can let me remotely check RAM speed and type on a machine on the network.
I already have a script to check the total memory on a remote machine, but i can't any information about how to check RAM speed and type though.
Please kindly give me some hints.
Thanks

Have you tried the Win32_PhysicalMemory class?

this seems work.  however, please take a look at the code below
strComputer = InputBox("Enter Computer name", _
"Find Computer Memory", strComputer)
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colComputer = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_PhysicalMemory")

For Each objComputer in colComputer
   speed = int(objComputer.Speed)
   Wscript.Echo "System Name: " & objComputer.Name _
   & vbCr & speed
Next


for example, my machine only has 2 memory modules, but it always return me a with 3 results while the last one is blank.  any idea?
