Meridian, Idaho, January 13, 2002--Crucial Technology(R), a division
of Micron(R) and one of the world’s largest factory-direct memory
upgrade providers, announced today that a free, online
system-profiling utility is now available through its Web site at
www.crucial.com. The Belarc Advisor is a downloadable Web utility
that quickly and accurately profiles an end-user’s computer, then
displays detailed information about the hardware and software
installed on that system. With this utility, Crucial customers
can see how many megabytes (MB) of memory they have and how
many memory modules are installed without opening their computer
case. They can also determine their computer’s make, model, and
motherboard, making it easier to select the proper memory upgrades
for that system.
"This is just one more tool that helps our customers help themselves,"
said Crucial Technology Marketing Director Rafe VanDenBerg.
"At Crucial, our goal has always been to make finding the right
memory upgrade as easy as possible. Now our customers can use the
Belarc Advisor to profile their PC, then use Crucial’s Memory
Selector(TM) to order the right memory upgrade."
The Belarc Advisor is available at
online technical support in the Help section of Crucial’s Web
site. The Belarc Advisor provides information to the computer user
only; no information is shared with any Web server. The license
associated with this product allows for free, personal use only.
