Your Presario SR1720NX 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.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario SR1720NX System:

      Although technically experienced, I had not needed to install memory in a PC before.
      A major reason why I purchased from Crucial was their tool that analyzed the PC's model, OS, etc. and existing memory and recommended upgrade memory. It was a real aid to being confident that I was buying the right chips apart from what was indicated based on my PC model number.

      The Crucial email linking to pre-installation recommendations was another reassurance that I was not forgetting something.

      Installation went smoothly (I did take safeguards against static, even though I did not have anti-static straps). I was holding my breath on startup after installing the cards, but everything came up normally -- except much faster!

      The net effect of the upgrade has been huge operational speed, and the ability to run multiple applications simultaneously, along with video playback. Very satisfied.
