Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)

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.

        Crucial has it all figured out. They do everything but install the memory for you. I got a good deal and best of all there was no confusion at all. This is the only place I will come when I need memory.

              Comments about Crucial 2GB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a6000n System:

              We were running Vista with 1GB of Ram. It was so slow. Bought 2 2GB sticks from Crucial - which was less expensive than Best Buy. I am not a computer expert so it was great that Crucial could suggest the RAM I needed for my computer. And they had a link for instructions on how to install it. So I was able to install them myself and now our computer is running a lot faster.
