    The Crucial analyzer software told me what to order. I took a chance, not really knowing how reliable the company/products are. However, this couldn't have been any easier. I took the cover off the tower and looked for a board similar to the two I recieved. Then I unplugged the old module and placed the two new modules. Everything worked just fine. The on-screen response time is greatly improved. The only thing that could be improved would be to provide some kind of instruction sheet. A person less willing to invade the mysterious interior of the computer tower might not be as successful - or lucky - as I was.

    For someone who had no idea how to install new memory it was fustrating. I had to call and get online to get help and walk me thru it. I had some difficulty in the beginning didn't know to take out the old memory, but eventually got it. I would think that it would be a pretty simple fix to add instructions.

      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway E-2000 Series System:

      I ordered 2 gigs of memory to update an older Gateway desktop that had only 768 megs. We use it as a backup computer when the newer one isn't working (as is the case at the moment), plus my husband likes to use it to play some of his older games. It was simple to install and did make a huge difference. Unfortunately, the graphics card needs updating, too, but aside from that, I think the old beast is about the best it can be for what it is.

        Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway E-2000 Series System:

        My 9 year old computer with 256K memory was getting slow, so I decided to see if adding 1GB would help. The difference was like night and day. Apparently, the 256K which was adequate 9 years ago is not enough for today's browsers. Typical use after the addition is around 500K, so previously the computer was running with about half the memory required for good performance.

        The installation was easy with the excellent instructions. It was particularly helpful that instead of just saying something like "insert memory in slot", they emphasized that one has to push HARD with about 20 pounds. Having never done it before, I would have been hesitant to apply so much force to a delicate component had the instructions not been so explicit.
