        That old Dell laptop was slow...tried deleting processes, removing programs, defrag, all that. Might have retired it. Then I upgraded memory from the 250mb card to a 1GB card, and wow, now it works very nicely, for a lot less than buying a new laptop. Guess I'll invest in a new battery next, and get this thing back on the road.

                  Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Inspiron 300m System:

                  I refurbish laptops for friends. This was for a Dell 300m. After reinstalling XP Pro to clean up all the accumulated mess, it still was quite sluggish. I used the Scanner tool to select best memory upgrade, ordered it and had it installed in three days! Makes all the difference in the world. From a nice, but slow and underpowered little laptop, to one that can handle multiple applications with ease. Best bang for the buck, by far. Memory upgrades from Crucial have never failed to enhance the operation of my computers, and certainly never failed to be the right one for the job. I am always satisfied. PG in Texas
