If you don't have your motherboard documentation, open the case to get the make, model, and revision number. You can look up detailed specifications, including valid memory configuration. The only way I know of to get the manufacturer and other detailed information on the exact memory you have installed is to open the computer and take a look. Given the sometimes tight quarters, this may require removal. If you're careful, that shouldn't be a problem.
