    My desktop has lain dormant for five years because I went laptop. It had a great processor (Athlon 64-bit, 2.0 ghz), just insufficient (512mb) RAM, and I wanted to take it to my real estate office so that I wouldn't have to lug my laptop back and forth. Went to Crucial, found out my max upgrade and RAM type for my system and VOILA! When the RAM came, I, a little old grandma, was able to install it myself with no trouble whatsoever. Now, I have an office desktop that is nothing short of greased lightning! I couldn't be happier.

          Used the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool to locate correct memory. It suggested 1 gig so ordered 2 units. Installation stated there was a 512 max per unit allowed. Contacted Crucial and got good cooperation and service to replace orig order with new requirement (which installed and worked OK).
          Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool needs updating. It has worked well in the past. Other than wrong item, everything else was good.

                  I have tried everything that I read about in forums and blogs on the internet regarding slowness of a computer. I even purchased a registry error fix program, but ultimately my computer would end up slow again. I have plenty of space and memmory on my computer and always clear out the internet history/cookies, but the RAM was lacking. I bought my computer in 2002 and it's still in fantastic shape, it's just slow, so I didn't want upgrade to a new PC. I'm SO GLAD I came across this website. Cruical.com was very helpful in determining what RAM was compatable with my PC. It's the best thing that I could have done for my PC...even after all these years! I'm sure I will have my computer for many more years to come.
