I have an HP Pavilion Desktop with 512mb RAM running Windows XP that I bought in 2003. The computer felt very slow - opening multiple apps was difficult and internet browsing was slow as well. I upgraded the RAM to 1gb (2 x 512mb) and noticed that my computer boots up very quickly now. The hard drive on the computer is nearly empty (since it's just an internet machine) but with the new RAM, it boots up faster than my ASUS UL50 with Windows 7 64-bit.
This is a great buy if you need to keep an old computer around for simple tasks.
I wanted to upgrade from 512 MB to 1 GB RAM to speed the machine up. I received the memory in new unopened anti-static packaging. It was easy to replace on the HP's motherboard, but I would recommend watching a You Tube video on moving the drive housing out of the way for easy access to the slots. Machine booted quickly and recognized the new memory with no issues. Don't expect too much of a decrease in boot time but the processing of video files does go faster now.
I RECIEVED THE CHIPS A DAY EARLY AND HAD THEM INSTALLED THE NEXT DAY. IT'S ALMOST LIKE HAVING A NEW COMPUTER EVEN THOUGH IT'S ACTUALLY A DINOSAUR. I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE PRODUCT AS IT DOES EVERYTHING EXPECTED AND MORE. AMAZON COMES THROUGH AGAIN. THANKS AMAZON.
