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.

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.

            Maxing the ram out for 32bit Vista is a must. Especially if you are running virus, firewall etc.

            The speed of the two new chips I purchased matched perfectly with my original chips, I am using my two original 512 MB chips along with the two new 1 GB chips I Purchased from Crucial. I now have 3 GB of RAM and only paid for 2 GB upgrade!

            Using the RAM selector on the Crucial website will always be my first choice for any Ram upgrade!

              Read many posts about the problems of mixing Dual Channel memory. I bought and installed 2 of your 1GB, 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300, NON-ECC chips in along with my 2 original 1/2 Gb chips and have had no problems, and it differently increased my speed. A simple thing like refreshing the desktop went from 3 to 4 seconds to the blink of an eye.
