Your dc5000 Series All Form Factors System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

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.

          Have been pleased with this site/company that was recommended to me by my IT friend. Very easy to use the assesment tool to determine what I needed for the computers. Bought 1, installed easily and has improved performance so I bought one for the second computer also.

            This was a good experience, end-to-end. The web-site was easy to navigate, and the specific recommendation regarding what to buy was useful.[...] Installation was a breeze, following the clear instructions provided by Crucial. My biggest problem was figuring out how to open the computer access panel, but a quick trip to the computer manufacturer's web site cleared that up.
