You need to know what type of memory to buy one.
Below we will look at two easy options available in Windows 10 to find the information you need without installing additional software.
First of all, you can use the built-in Task Manager application to find your DDR type.
Open Task Manager
Click the Details button to see more tabs.
On the Performance tab, click Memory on the left.
In the upper right-hand corner, the application displays the total and type (eg DDR3) of memory installed on your device.
In addition to Task Manager, you can get this information from the command line.
Open a command prompt window as Administrator.

wmic MemoryChip get BankLabel, Capacity, MemoryType, TypeDetail, Speed, Tag
The command will display the MemoryType column. Match the number with values in the table below. For example, if MemoryType is 24, then it is DDR3
