Your Dimension 1100 System Specs

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

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

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.

    Simple to replace memory - hardest part was getting the outer shell off of the PC. But that was just me being uncoordinated, friend came in and popped that off in a nano-second. Video at crucial was easy to follow. If my FRIEND had not told me that the increased memory would make such a difference, I doubt I would have believed reading at a website selling the memory, but BELIEVE IT!
    Only because I found it at Cnet (which I trust), I downloaded a little gizmo to let Crucial 'look' at my computer and tell me what I had and what I should get. I ordered, product arrived super fast and (after getting the case open) I quickly and easily installed the new RAM. I just wish I'd done this a year ago, when things first started to slow down. My hard drive is 108GB and only half full, I defrag and do all those other maintenance things, so I didn't think I needed more memory. I was wrong!!
    You will not be disappointed!

    Unfortunately only 1 stick is working. It has increased the memory and speed slightly but the 2nd stick has not worked yet. I am a casual user but have a neighbor who recommended your company and installed one but cannot get the other to work. he thinks 1 unit may be faulty or something else is the issue.
    Right now, he has not been able to correct the problem and he does this work professionally.
    I am not sure what the current issue is and therefore am not compleyely satisfied.

          The memory upgrade provided by Crucial has been great. It has given new life to an older computer. The crucial website was very helpful in recommending tasks to perform before the memory upgrade, and the installation video was very helpful. Thanks Crucial to working faster & working better.
