Your Presario SR2150NX 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 used the website scanner to determine which memory I needed and ordered one memory card for my dual slot motherboard. Crucial's website informed me that pairs would be better, but I decided to go with just the 1 gig and hope for the best. [...]I installed the card and my PC only recognized the new 1 gig card and not my old 512mb RAM, leaving me with 1 gig instead of 1.5 gig. No worries, though, my PC still functions fine and know where to get the next gig of RAM when I'm ready! I am very happy with Crucial's product and website and I would definitely recommend this product and seller to everyone.

            I had a friend with this computer and she always complained about it being slow. I checked her system and saw she had 512 mb of ram for Vista. I picked her up 2 gb of this ram and what a difference! [...] the search for the correct ram was a great tool. Very satisfied with the purchase.

                      I have an early Vista system that HAD only 512MG. Memory often maxxed. SSLLOOOOOW response to seemingly simple tasks. Bought only 1) 1G stick. (As inexpensive as this memory is I SHOULD have opted for the 2G Kit-the PC does not now recognize the original 512 stick-so only have the 1G that this product provides.) Still a great improvement. Easy to install, inexpensive, using the PC is much less frustrating. [...] (However I am within site of the Crucial site and would have expected no less!)Final thought / advice from me=buy the 2G kit...
