DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

If you receive a "Memory available limited to 256MB!" message after installing more than 256MB, enter BIOS and turn OS Install to OFF. Exit saving changes.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.

        Comments about Crucial 1GB kit (512MBx2) Upgrade for a Dell Dimension 3000 System:

        My PC computer has two memory slots and I found during set up that one of them was not working so for the last 5 years have only used the good one. I was advised by a computer pro to try the empty slot again and he recommended Crucial so I did and it worked where the previous chip had failed. In all fairness, I used a contact cleaner on the slot and had I done that 5 years ago perhaps the other chip would have worked also.

                Crucial sent me a 1GB upgrade for a reasonable price. It rejuvenated my PC. Everything was explained to me before I made a decision to purchase. Cant ask for more than that.
