System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

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.

        I use my computer on daily bases. I needed more RAM memory to access multiple applications and use the internet. I got from Crucial what I needed. [...] The price is reasonable, the installation was very easy, and the product is working just fine. I am very satisfied.

            Great product. Used Crucial to assess my computer, then purchased the recommendation. Very simple. Used my computer owners manual to show me how to install... again easy.

            My computer was a 512 mb and we upgraded to 1.5 gigs. It moved like a snail for the last year. We were going to buy another computer but decided to upgrade the memory ... great decision by us. Our computer moves lightning fast. Thank you!
