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.

                The laptop was running so slow it seemed like it stopped. I easily installed two 512 MB upgrade circuit boards and replaced the one - 128 MB board. It really enhanced performance. So much that I was going to buy a new laptop and will delay that purchase for a while. I have not found any regrets on this purchase. spending [$] beats $800 any day!
