Your dc5000 Series All Form Factors System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4

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.

        The best part is letting the seller determine exactly the type of memory I needed instead of a lot of searching to make sure one had memory that was appropriate. I received my memory quickly and had it installed and my computer up an running in about 10 minutes total. This would have even been quicker except that with my small footprint computer I had to remove hard drive to get to memory.
