Dirty secret of the industry: your computer isn't outdated - just out-configured; save thousands for pennies on the dollar
IRVINE, Calif. (June 13, 2006) - GoldenRAM Inc. (www.goldenRAM.com), a global leader in computer upgrades, accessories and services, today announced the launch of its patent -pending software technology that provides both consumers and corporate users with a clear (and guaranteed compatible) path to computer and peripheral upgrades. Called UpgradeDetect, this one -click tool will perform a detailed inspection of a computer system , analyzing over 3000 pieces of data down to the chip level, and will finish with a complete report listing suggested upgrades, including exact part numbers from which to choose. By so doing, users are freed from compatibility issues and concerns over available memory slots, upgrade configurations or any of the other model -specific problems that commonly arise when trying to upgrade. In addition, users can purchase online at prices that average thirty to forty -percent less than retail and can chose to have a certified technician perform the upgrade on -site, for an upfront, fixed price - in as fast as one hour from time of request. The UpgradeDetect software is free to consumers and corporate users and can be found on the company's Web site or by going to www.upgradedetect.com.
The dirty secret of the computer industry is that corporate profits are based on users believing that the "state -of -the -art" computer sold to them a few years ago is now outdated and worthless. It is a selling cycle called "planned obsolescence" and, while it is keeping computer manufacturers happy, it sends mixed and often erroneous signals to consumers. For most PC users, their current system is more than adequate when properly configured. Furthermore, the cost difference between upgrading an existing system and buying a new one is substantial.
UpgradeDetect not only offers users a comprehensive list of suggested computer upgrades, it also alerts users if their system's oft -unprotected Serial Presence Detect (SPD) chip is at risk for virus. Most RAM memory modules have an SPD chip that allows the computer to determine how much and what type of memory is onboard the RAM module. The problem is that, in the vast majority of systems, the SPD chip is not write -protected - meaning a virus could potentially make the computer unusable by over -writing information contained in the SPD chip. UpgradeDetect will scan down to the chip level to determine if the user has write -protected virus -free RAM.
With Windows Vista on the horizon, GoldenRAM is gearing up for rapid expansion as computer upgrades in preparation for Vista represent a sizeable market opportunity. GoldenRAM will train a network of Technology Advisors to actively promote UpgradeDetect as part of a unique and lucrative commission -based program. Technology Advisor trainings will be offered initially in Irvine, California, and will be expanding nationwide throughout the year.

In addition, certified computer technicians interested in joining the team of over 977,000 nationwide experts can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
