Memory Buying Guide

More than 15 years in the memory business have helped us build a vast library of content to answer most questions you might have about memory upgrades. We've gathered much of that information here in our industry-leading Memory Buying Guide.

From articles on finding the right memory upgrades to videos on memory installation it's all here in the Memory Buying Guide.



Does your computer need more memory?

Here are a few simple — but telling — signs that your computer could benefit from a memory upgrade.
  • You experience poor performance in everyday tasks. For instance, a program doesn't respond or seems to take forever to open.
  • You get system notifications that say "low memory" or "out of memory."
  • You are having display problems. Like when you pull up a page and it either partially loads or if it refuses to load at all. Or you see a blank space where data should be.
  • In some cases, the PC refuses to operate at all. When you try to open anything, the system will not respond.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, a memory upgrade may be in order. Use our advanced Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool to find compatible memory for your computer.
