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.

      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway E-4100 Series System:

      My computer was running slow. I had tried all sorts of cleaning methods and it didn't seem to help. Then it dawned on me that it most likely needed more memory. Thisngs run much more smoothly now. It's not super fast, but definitely better than before. And I can run several things without it slowing up.

              Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway E-4100 Series System:

              I have an older (bought in 2003) gateway computer, which was fine most of the time but had difficulty running certain applications. It would load these very slowly, if at all and the computer would freeze if you did anything else or the AV scan was running. I was ready to buy a new computer but the RAM upgrade fixed everything for a fraction of the price. Try this first!

                I have an aging 6-year old Gateway 500XL system running Windows XP SP3 that desperately needed more than the original 512 MB of RAM. After I added the additional 2 GB of memory, everything loads and runs faster from the operating system to games to even iTunes. I highly recommend upgrading your memory.
