        I have a HP 2140 netbook that I wanted to upgrade to 2 GB from the 1 MB that came standard. I wanted to be sure to optimize performance.A search included Crucial and the web site was the easiest to use and most helpful. [...] Despite not getting instructions with the modules the process was easy. I located a video on a video web site that showed a step-by-step demonstration. On this machine it incudes removing the keyboard. It's easier than one would think. The process takes a couple of minutes.I am totally satisfied with my purchase and with Crucial. I will come back for more whenever I might need it.

          Very easy install in my HP 2140 Mini and works great. Perfect five minute upgrade that really does work. If you have an HP 2140 Mini Note, then you should NOT settle for stock 1GB; you need this Crucial 2GB.

              Although I could have found the same thing, different brand at a cheaper price, all of my IT friends have said trust Crucial.
