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 IBM ThinkPad T42 Series (Type 2373) System:

        I did not expect an increase in speed when I bought the product -- that is left to the CPU cache, HDD rpm speed, CPU speed, etc. -- but I am able to run more applications without having to run my HDD raw. It seems applications close and load faster with little to no HDD interaction.
