How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

    Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a IBM ThinkPad T43 Series (Type 1872) System:

    I purchased this IBM T43 second hand about a year ago, and it was running slower and slower as I added / needed more applications. After adding this 1GB memory stick, it now runs faster than my wifes new Dell with Vista. I'm using XP pro and am extremely happy with the performance. I wish I had made the [$] investment months ago. Crucial makes this so easy anyone can do it with your free scan utility. I will be sending others your way!
