you mean the RAM slots, by what you call DIMM(dual in-line memory module). depending on the motherboard you have you could have 2,4,or 6 of these slots. all parallel to each other.

The easiest thing to do would be to give us the brand and model of computer you have if its store bought or the motherboard model number if its a custom built system. Then we can tell what type of memory you have installed. Or you can download a program called cpuz which will also tell you what you have.

It has ddr2 memory slots because you have ddr2 memory. Unless i'm not understanding your question.

i just wanna know if there is a easy one to identify how many pins are the dimm socket is.. by just only looking at the board personally.. or by just looking at the support cd. is it possible?

The support cd will tell you nothing about the memory slots. All you have to know is what type of memory the board takes and you know how many pins it is.

ddr2 is 240 pins with a notch in a certain spot

ddr3 is 240 pins with a notch in different spot then ddr2, so you can't interchange them

ddr is 184 pins with a notch in a certain spot.

None of these can be interchanged.
