If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use theCrucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible http://www.memorystock.com/memory/HewlettPackardCompaqPresarioSR1215CL.html
This is info on your motherboard: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph07843 Your system comes with Intel P4 2.53 GHz processor and 512MB ram. total ram could be 1GB, bt adding another 512MD stick. You have Socket 478 and processor would be up to you. The system comes with a 200w power supply so, in an upgrade, you should up the power supply. You have an AGP expansoin slot and, you could upgrade to a graphics card but again, power supply is only 200w. The system as it stands is not Windows 7 compatible. If you incraesed your ram and got a graphics card, you would get better performance.
Thanks to Microsoft Knowledge Base for help with my answer:
First, find out what the maximum amount of memory is. This is generally listed by most of the manufacturers. This will let you know what upgrade potential the system has. Next, determine how the memory configuration is when you buy the system. For example, a laptop that has 2GB of memory can be configured as either a single 2GB module or two 1GB modules. The single memory module allows for better upgrade potential because by adding another module you are gaining more memory without sacrificing any current memory. Upgrading the two module situation with a 2GB upgrade would result in the loss of one 1GB module and a memory total of 3GB.
First step : Make sure the memory you purchased meets the following specifications
"168pin PC133 SDRAM DIMM" which should be easily accessible from wherever you bought it.
If not, then you can find memory here. that the company guarentee's will work with your system. Also - You want to make sure the memory that was in your system to begin with is identical to the memory you are sticking in it to get it to 512MB Systems that are this old with "PC133 SDRAM" are very picky about what kind of ram you stick in them. Make sure wherever you purchase your memory from, has a guarentee that it will work in the make/model of your computer.
You can go to the manufacturer website and check on the product model specifications to show you the correct limits. For example, if you have a hp laptop, go to www.hp.com and enter your product model in the search. then look for product specification page and you should be able to verify the memory limits
