    Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario 6000 Series (Pentium 4 processors) System:

    Someone assisting in platform cleanup noticed paucity of keyboard RAM. The PC is real old and it only does one job, so no attention is called to it normally.

    Putting RAM affects performance, but this review is about Crucial Company, and what they do is to supply the correct P/N by careful filtering software in the product selection process. This process ties in with the company parts database that itself has cross references embedded.

      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario 6000 Series (Pentium 4 processors) System:

      I ordered the wrong size memory. Upon receiving it I called Crucial. The problem was immediately recognized, the correct memory found and ordered. I received it in two days and installed it in seconds after reviewing the video. The computer now performs like it is new. Overall a wonderful experience.
