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.

        This was beyond "state of the art"! Being able to have the Crucial site examine my wife's PC and provide multiple levels of solutions with prices included made it easy for me to decide. In my case, I added 2GB & also kept the 512mb. But if my wife gets carried away with the 10 grandkids pictures and videos, I'll be back for more!! THANKS

        Best thing about Crucial is the online memory scanner. Let it tell you what your options are, and order it. I had only 2GB in this XP Pro box and a VMWare virtual machine was dog-slow and crash-prone unless I closed out all other apps on the host. After adding the new 2GB I can have memory hogs like Outlook and FrontPage open on the host, be running Photoshop in the VM, no crashes and noticeably increased performance.

                  I snapped them in to my son's computer as part of an upgrade to get it ready for Windows 7. It worked like a charm and I have no complaints at all. The computer was an old refurbished $200 model, and now it runs great. Windows 7 likes it too.
