                  This was a memory upgrade in an 8 year old Desktop Compaq taking it from 2-256 MG cards to 2-1GB cards. Installed easily and works just fine. I am pleased.

                    I thought my computer was slow because of my Internet provider, but after installing the increased memory,I found not having enough was the problem.

                    Installation took a few minutes, and start-up took less than half the time.
