      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Business Notebook nx9420 System:

      This was an upgrade from 2G to 4G on a laptop running Windows 8 release preview. Significant increase in speed. Installation would have been easy if hp/compaq hadn't hidden 1 memory module under the keyboard. After I found it, I was able to complete the install without any issues.
