    wmic memorychip list full in cmd.exe will also give you full details without some third party software. Same as msconfig system report.

    wmic memorychip get banklabel, manufacturer, partnumber, speed, MemoryType, devicelocator. Is another way to gather info.

    Hyundai is going to always be HMT. Micron still uses ATF.

    If you don't want to have memory issues, buy a memory stick with the same specs of the current you have (same brand, same chipsets and more important, same speed and timings).

    Download HWinfo portable (Free Download HWiNFO Sofware | Installer & Portable for Windows, DOS). Extract the files and run it.
    You will find all your current memory specs

    Edit: Sent the debugmode txt files to them. See what they come up with.
    Got a response from PassMark saying some Lenovo PCs hide SMBUS data which is what they depend on for this memory info, so SOL as far as RAMMON use.

    WMIC does the trick though.
