Your Presario SR5130NX System Specs

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-8500, DDR2 PC2-5300

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

Graphics Card:

PCI Express x16 Graphics

External Connector: 15-hole connector

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display. Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate they support. These parameters are also limited by the monitor to which the adaptor is connected.

        I have two Compaq Presario's and upgraded both to 4GB. I did have one of the 2GB sticks that was bad, but Crucial took care of it at no extra charge. Easy return. Thanks Crucial. I will definately be back when I need more memory.

            Adding the 4GB of memory (2GB x 2) Kit has greatly increased the performance/speed of my desk top pc. Night and Day/Black and White performance, before vs. after.The entire process was easy and professional:- From downloading the memory scanner/determining what memory type was needed. - Speaking with a customer rep to review a couple of questions.- Ordering [...] To installing the memory - this took me about an hour or two - I've never opened a pc box before - If I'd do it again, take 15 minutes.Installed May 14, 2011. No issues since installation. Very please I did the upgrade!!!

                    I am very pleased with the speed increase and it was very easy to install. Just make sure that you're inserting it the right way. It only goes in, in one direction. I would definitely buy from Crucial again and rightly so; they're my computer repair shop's main parts supplier! If a computer store uses them, they have to be good!
