Your Presario SR2180NX 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: 4GB
Slots: 4

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.

video - installing memory

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 play online games and didn't want to pay to have my PC upgraded, so I went on a quest to see what my computer needed to really submerse myself in to my addiction. To have a professional do my upgrade would have cost me over $300. Doing it myself cost me only [$]. Now I play all my games in the highest resolution they support.Thanks Crucial!

    After installation, computer did not work. As per help, I installed one module at a time and discovered that one of the modules was no good. Rather than return the defective module, I now have to send both back to Crucial for a return. I will not recommend this company to a friend because I do not think its' quality control is competant.

        after simple install heard high pitch whine because one of the two "sticks" was not firmly seated. Re-seated it and the high pitch noise went away. Fixed my own problem.
