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.

          Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario S4100NX Series System:

          I have a Compaq PC, the RAM I ordered from Crucial.com was exactly what I needed to increase the RAM so to install my new Qucikbooks 2011 software. I HAD 249MB of RAM, but I needed 500MB of RAM to install Quickbooks. I looked at [@] for instruction on how to install, it was easy! So I felt comfortable to go to Crucial.com and order. So I ordered and installed myself...BOOM-DONE! Now I have 749MB of RAM. I'm so proud I did it all myself. It worked exactly as I had hoped and now Quickbooks is installed! Crucial is awesome, all I had to do was type in my PC make and model and they gave me options of compatable RAM and at incredible prices! I LOVE CRUCIAL.COM! :)))

          Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario S4100NX Series System:

          I bought this with hopes it would cure BitDefender 2011 caused computer crashes. For a month BD tech support offered suggestions on what I was doing wrong. Finally I decided to give more memory a try, and I ordered. A couple of days later BD suggested I do that, or they could downgrade me to 2009 version at no cost. Although their box said 512 MB minimum requirement, tech support said 1 GB needed. The 1 GB memory solved that problem. Also for the first time I was able to load The Ultimate Troubleshooter. The Crucial site was very logical and intuitive and each step easily led me to choosing the right memory. I never had to contact their tech support. Price great, [...]Where do I send the roses?

            I couldn't believe how much faster my old computer is now working. I was going to spend $$$ on a new desktop, but saved bucko bucks by just "speeding" things up. A friend recommended your site, guided me in the purchase and installed it. Thanks for the huge savings [...]. I'll be back at your site again.
