Your Presario SR1803WM System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

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 up graded from 512 mb. The web site did all the work in choosing the correct chip. [...] the installation was easy. I would not hesitate to use or recomend crucial in the future. The upgrade added performance to an older desktop.

            I heard about crucial.com from my sister-in-law, so I went online to their website and it was so easy.
            the prices were so reasonable and ordering was a breeze. When I needed to contact them (I am not a computer whiz) I didn't have to wait forever to talk to a Tech.and the fella was patient and nice and talked me through what I needed to do. It was a great experience and I will buy from them again.

            Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario SR1803WM System:

            needed more memory to run my software
            lost 500MB free space for some reason, no big deal
            Since adding memory computer says I have to defrag,even after defraging my operating system still says to defrag, false reading somehow, again no big deal
