Your Presario SR1710NX System Specs

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

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (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.

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.

      For someone who has never changed RAM before, some fiddling needs to be done to get it in just right. For those who often install RAM, this is an easy installation.

            First bought 1gb corvair ram at best buy and it was a dud and wouldn't work on my computer. After a search I went on crucial and bought these rams. I feel like I have a new super expensive computer. Upset I never did this sooner. Recommend this to anyone with a slow computer.

                The computer that this was installed in was purchased with only 256 mg memory. This new memory made the computer work like it should. Computer should never have been sold with so little memory. [...]
