            I thought my old laptop was dead so we bought a new one about a year ago and this one has been in the closet.... it just needed a face lift, and that's what it got with it's new memory modules. We use it as a second computer now and keep it wireless in the livingroom! It was easy to find the right part, and the right price at Crucial. It runs like a new one and we're glad to have a secondary computer. You guys and girls rock!

            Thanks!

              The memory speeded up an other wise slow computer. I had intended on installing myself, however another computer needed service work, so I had a technician install the memory. It was quick and easy to install according to my tech!

                    Did increase my PC startup as well as loading of some websites. It did not do as well as I thought it would (2 gig upgrade), but still will not complain as you can tell obvious enhancments from a simple 512 stick.

                      A "techie" friend of mine suggested I make this upgrade to my computer as I was complaining about speed. For minimal cost I basically have a new machine. And it is fast. I think the install for a first timer could be a little tricky but, after watching him do it, I could do it myself in a snap.
