If it is an OEM machine, like Lenovo, HP, or Dell, then punch in your model and the word "specs" into a Google search. Usually they list the type of RAM, and the maximum supported.

If it's an aftermarket motherboard, use the model of motherboard instead of PC model in the specs search...

Next, physically look to see what DIMM (RAM stick) slots are populated and how many you have total. Most CPU's (processors) and motherboards support dual channel RAM, which means that if there are 2 DIMM slots, each one is on a different channel, and they can be different sticks, though they will typically operate at the lowest frequency of the 2 types installed.

If you have 4 DIMM slots, and 2 are populated, it gets a bit trickier. Some manufacturers color code the channels differently, where one channel is one color and the other channel is another color... Others color code them for one color being the primary slots of each channel, and the other color being the secondary slots.

Either way, it is best to consult the motherboard manual or OEM'S service manual (can usually be found via google) to make sure if there is any doubt. With the case of 4 slots, there is usually a recommended slot to install RAM if not all slots are populated, and you also want to make sure you are using both channels correctly...

Start with your model, and go from there... In my experience, most OEM machines just have 2 DIMM slots and they are both populated, so an upgrade should be fairly easy. Just replace the existing DIMMs with the new DIMMs... you still want to make sure the motherboard supports the capacity you buy, too... From what I've seen, most OEM boards from the last 5 years or so can support up to 16GB of DDR3 1333 or 1600 at 1.5v... if it is a newer PC with an Intel processor (a year old or less) It might take DDR4 RAM...
