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.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario SR1803WM System:

      My H-P Presario desktop running Windows XP was a good machine when new and slowly got slower as more information and programs were added. I had Norton antivirus installed therefore knew there were no viruses present. The hard drive would whine as it spun continously. So loud it could be heard in other rooms. The PC forgot half the passwords that were supposed to come up automatically on regular low risk programs to open them. It got so slow something had to be done as I use the computer to run Alps Micro dry series printers which run parallel cables. These cable ports are increasingly harder to find installed in a new PC these days due to USB improvements in equipment available. I went to start then, my computer and found out I had only 512 MB of memory. Crucial had 2GB memory upgrade kits for [$], which is all this 4 year old PC would accept! It took a mere 12 minutes to install and What a difference. I should have done this years ago. Thanks Crucial for also scanning my HP computer and letting me know what part number I needed. Nothing could have been easier than to order from CRUCIAL!!!! You have my vote of confidence!
