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
One good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.
This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.
It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.
If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.
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.
If your looking to go to a store, I don't think you'll have much luck. If you do get lucky they probably have to order it, so let's save you a step. Copy, paste this address link to your web browser. http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqPresario5700T550.html
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.
Try to go to this site and use the compatibility tool and see if that points you in the right direction. Although it won't mess up your system to install the wrong ram it could be a costly mistake to order the wrong ram.
