My computer had been running REALLY slow and my computer guru brother happened to be visiting. He told me to buy more memory (my computer had 512MB, purchased in 2006). I was about ready to trade it in when he told me about getting the extra memory and showed me how to install it, which was really easy. He recommended crucial.com so I bought 2 GB of memory and WOW!!! what a difference! Computer is super-fast now. Thanks, Crucial!

1GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron

Added the upgrade but have noticed little, if any, improvement in speed. Perhaps I expected too much.

Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron B130 System:

A memory model was added to expand RAM capacity to allow running Windows 7 on a laptop. Initially, the added module was not recognized because as it turned out the card was not fully inserted to complete the contacts in the laptop. To accomplish good contact, it was necessary to lift the module edge opposite the contacts and tilt the card while inserting it. All was fine after that. Windows 7 ran fine after adding the required memory module.

Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron B130 System:

I purchased the memory for a Dell Inspiron B130 that I installed Windows 7 on. Performance improved significantly. I've purchased memory from Crucial and had others do likewise. I will continue to recommend Crucial for memory purchases.
