My main issue was a six year old refurbished PC with only 768 MB of RAM (or at least that seemed the primary issue after reading various sources who said RAM upgrade was the easiest fix to sluggish performance). My browsers would hang and crash about every two hours, give or take, plus I'd get a lot of garbage messages in the background--probably related. With the installation of your RAM, the problems disappeared imediately. Ran for days without crashing. Actually hasn't crashed, but my wife got tired of hunting through all the tabs to find what she wanted and ended up rebooting the system. So much for my experiment.

It was easy to get to but I had to push and push and could never get it seated so I had to remove the original memory and put the new one in that slot and put the old memory in the 2nd slot. No difference in performance, actually a gaming site I frequent loads even slower now. Maybe I did something wrong....when I get a chance, I will try to swap both memories and see if that changes anything.

Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Dimension 2400 Series System:

My friend's Dell Dimension was running on 256MB out of the box, with a max capacity of 2GB. Getting low memory warnings every 20 minutes or when she was trying to do something intensive. The System Scanner tool on the website made the purchase so much easier than having to search for the specifications from the manufacturer. I installed it and when booting no beep codes to deal with and the system recognized the added memory at the boot. My friend was so pleased with the speed improvement. Crucial will be my first stop when looking for more memory. Once again great job on the System Scanner excellent tool!

                  My DELL Dimension 2400 works noticebly faster and more reliable now. Before I installed this additional memory my McAfee anti-virus simply did not work. Great things about this purchase are ability to monitor movement of the parcell from shipping to delivery, and the manual for installation.
