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.

      This memory up-grade has really perked-up my HP laptop. My system is more stable now and when I'm running multiple tasks I have noticeably improved performance.

      I've purchased from Crucial before and I will again. They are reliable, fast, and make getting the right memory almost fool-proof.

        Crucial does everything they say they are going to do. Service is fast, and when I had ordered the wrong module, they made returning the unit painless and fast.

          This was the best website I came across for finding the right type of upgrade chips. Plus, the prices are very good, too.
