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.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

I was asked to look at and fix my mother in laws underpowered laptop. After cleaning and optimizing everything I could, I realized the only hope was either all new hardware or an upgrade in ram. Her 3 year old laptop is running Windows Vista, but only came with 512mb of RAM. This was being shared with video as well. Launching a simple program took minutes instead of seconds. The increase to 2Gb was simple and proved to be a laptop saver. With Crucial and it's guaranteed compatibility, I couldn't go wrong.

Easy Upgrade

One of the two modules did not work. RMA process is NG for defective out of the box. delayed me 10 days and added cost to return the bad module.

        At 74 years old, I was afraid to open the back of my laptop, with your product and instructions, it was so easy to do. I know I saved alot of money by ordering thru you. Thanks so much for having such good products that we can order and install ourselves.
