      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP Presario SR1230NX System:

      I am not well versed in technical applications. My old computer was running very slow and I read several articles suggesting that increasing memory could buy me another year or two before having to buy a new computer.
      I did not know where to start. I googled 'how to increase RAM' and gave my computer details. I was so lucky to see the Crucial web site. Within 10 minutes, I went from nervousness to confidence. The Crucial site not only gave me the correct memory upgrade for my computer, but also had a video that showed me how to install it.
      For those of you who are knowledgeble about computers this might not seem like a big thing. But for someone like myself, to go from being afraid to even open my CPU, to actually installing the extra memory myself, made me feel very, very confident.
      Thanks, Crucial for making it easy.

        Crucial's website had a program that told me which memory to buy, and a video on how to install memory. It was relatively inexpensive, very easy, and it has sped up our old computer. Thanks, Crucial!
