        Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron 1720 System:

        My Dell Inspiron 1720 was taking a long time to become usable after switch on.It had 2 GB of RAM, so I replaced one of the 1 GB modules with a Crucial 2GB module. There was a useful, although not dramatic, decrease in start-up time. I only replaced one RAM module because the other one is difficult to access as it is under the keyboard.
