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 512MB Upgrade for a HP Pavilion a335w System:

        This was the first upgrade of my older computer and it made a tremendous difference. I added memory as my hard drive was failing believing memory was the only problem. Installed a new hard drive and cloned my OS system. Now I'm like a kid at Christmas. The memory makes all the difference in the world. I'm not real computer savy so if Grandma can follow directions so can you! Don't forget to stay grounded.

          I'm a very low level PC user and adding this upgrade was super easy! I thought I would have to buy a new PC and this has improved it's performance so much that I don't have to now.

            I am totally happy with my purchase of memory from Crucial. My computer was functioning so slowly, I was ready to throw it out of the window. I used your software to determine just what I needed, and ordered the recommended units. I learned how to install them from watching You-tube. Wow! What a difference! Thanks again.

                I was about ready to get rid of my old PC. It used to take about 12 to 15 minutes to power up, and now it's ready to use in about a minute. I went from 256 MB of RAM to 1 GB. What a difference.

                    The computer we upgraded, using crucial's online scanner and advice, works better than ever. It was easy to install and we noticed improvements in the computers speed immediately. Start up speed, operation speed and we don't wait as long for programs to open anymore. Thanks Crucial.
