I had no idea what I needed to upgrade, Just knew I needed to.
I installed, and ran the Scanner, in an instant there was my answer. I not only knew what I had, but knew exactly what I needed, and how much I could upgrade to my preference. Made all the difference in the world. My 2002 Desktop, and 2006 Laptop are back to running like new.

The process was so easy, I then convinced my 73 yr old mother to give Crucial a try, for she was in need of a memory upgrade, for her pc of course. lol She even watched the available videos on "how to install" the actual cards, and completed that on her own as well. Took her longer to figure out how to get the side of the tower off, than the whole upgrading process, start to finish. lol

Thanks Crucial.com for an awesome, very well thought out, and efficient service.

I will continue to recommend your service.

    Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Gateway E-4000 Series System:

    Using an older Gateway E-4000 that had speed problems, CPU hogging, slow wipe away screens. Gateway makes installation of the RAM easy. After installation the problems associated with the older 512 meg RAM disappeared. Today's computer usage with the "busy' web pages, need at least the 2GB which I installed and which helped.

              I have an older Gateway E-4000 PC. Had no idea what memory I needed to buy to upgrade from my lame 512. Ran Crucial's PC scan to find the correct recommended upgrade product, Dropped in two new 1GB strips. Quadrupled memory, and now this old PC runs like a dream. Could not be happier.

                I was able to upgrade my 9 year old computer from 256 MB RAM to 2 GB RAM in a matter of minutes. The installation was simple and it made my computer like new! Before, it was so slow that I wanted to throw it away. I was able to save myself lots of money by implementing this simple upgrade.
