Your Presario SR5013WM 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.

      The web site makes it easy to be sure you have the correct item for the computer. For me, that's the biggest headache in most purchases, not knowing enough to make sure I have the item needed.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario SR5013WM System:

      If I had known what a difference this made, I would have done it long ago. I was having warning messages about low memory and crashes of my operating system. With the new RAM memory, I have no problems at all. I took advantage of the open case to gently blow out and vacuum the dust. It was so easy.

                I would recommend anybody to upgrade their memory with this. You will not believe how much speed you will get by upgrading to larger memory. I bought the 1gb x2 kit and WOW what a difference. I have shopped around for months on the cost to upgrade my memory, not adding to it and Crucial has the best deal around. You get more bang for your buck. The installation was a snap, it took me only 5 minutes to install and away I went in web surfing. I needed this to handle my home business and I am so glad that I did. I can get my work done in a fraction of the time it took me before the upgrade. This gives me more time for other things to do in my life. Don't wait for those local deals get yours now!!!!
