    Not compatible with my Compaq Presario

    The memory stick that you sent me (twice) was not compatible with my system (Compaq Presario SR2050NX)
    Bought memory stick in another store and it worked right away.

        After using Crucial Tool, I bought the recommended RAM suggested by the crucial tool, it didn't work. My system didn't recognize the newly installed RAM. SO the tool is not reliable.
