Ram upgrade help e420

[ Edited ]

I don't understand all the specifications associated with ram. Can someone tell me if this works? I insist on buying from amazon.

I recently replaced my E420 original 2x2 GB with this 2x4GB kit from Crucial:

My Windows Performance Index for Memory is now 7.4  :smileyvery-happy:



Go to Crucial.com to get great information on RAM for your system. You can then buy from Amazon with better understanding.of what's best for you.

Re: Ram upgrade help e420

Crucial.com has a tool that will detect the ram you have installed on your TP. If it is 2 x 2GB, then you can just decide to buy 1 -4GB for 6GB total and keep the waste to a minimum. You can also try to sell your left over ram. All I can tell you is that I am very happy with my 8GB. I am keeping the extra 2 x 2GB as spares.

Thanks for your help, fortunately the crucial scanner told me I have one available slot and a 4gb.
