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.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a Gateway W340UI System:

      Unfortunatley, it was sent to the wrong address, however, I believe this to be my own fault and no fault of Crucial. My Crucial Memory stick was sent back as a result. Based on the findings and recommendations on their web sight I was able to purchase a memory stick locally and my computer problems have been solved. Thanks, Sorry we were not able to complete the transaction, Looking forward to my refund !!

              Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a Gateway W340UI System:

              I already added that the computer specs claim it will handle 4G in two 2G slots. After installation, I immediately noticed that it only recognized 3G. It's a Vista machine so it should have recognized all four. The machine runs great with the 3 that it recognized.
