i need to get the Serial Number of my motherboard . i used dmidecode to get the serial number. but obviously i needed only the serial number and not the whole details. so i used grep to get only serial number but the problem is i get 3 occurences of "serial number " and only one of the occurences actually has the serial number with it.
looking on purchasing more RAM memory for my E4200
and all websites supplying RAM for my type of laptop
advise that it is only capable of taking 4GB in that
1 bank it has got plus 1GB which is on board, but
when looking at sudo dmidecode --type 16 it says:
Maximum Capacity: 8 GB
