Your Presario SR1430NX 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.

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.

        Crucial's website correctly identified the computer make and model, as well as the memory configuration and upgrade options. We chose the 2GB upgrade for an older XP machine that was running on 2 256MB chips, and it made a world of difference for this machine.

              The two 1GB memory chips I purchased worked very well as soon as they were installed. I am going to buy some more for my other computer.

              Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario SR1430NX System:

              Installation was straightforward. Three 1GB sticks got me from 1GB (split across 3 sticks) to what I needed to do heavy online charts and realtime video for trading. Improvement was quite noticeable.Remember to use a static wrist strap while handling. I'm a long-time Crucial customer, won't buy memory elsewhere. [...] reliable product.

                I initially installed two 1GB cards of RAM in my PC and noticed the improvement. Subsequently, I installed another two 1GB cards of RAM for the maximum performance.
                The product easy to install and the benifits are great!
