Presario sr1710nx what type memory has an excellent wizard for locating memory.
Computer memory upgrades for HP Compaq Presario SR1710NX Desktop PC...

Lists memory compatible with your machine.
Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
Slots: 4icon_note.gif Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

I have also found that the memory occasionally is not recognized. To fix remove the ram and clean electrical contacts with a clean pencil eraser. (Rub the contacts to clean.) Then replace memory. (My machine failed to boot, cleaning the contacts fixed the problem.

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my father-in-law's computer (Compaq Presario SR1500NX desktop). All the "see what ram you need" searches on various websites that sell memory indicate PC2700 is...

This is the memory specs for the SR1500.
Presario SR1500NX Memory Specifications Standard Memory 256 MB (removable) Maximum Memory 2 GB Memory Expansion 2 sockets Memory Comments PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. CPU Type 2.0GHz AMD Sempron 3000+ Model Comments 333MHz FSB, VIA KM400A Chipset.

The PC2700 refers to the RAM speed, so you can use PC3200 which is faster RAM than PC2700, the PC3200 RAM should be more expensive not cheaper unless this supplier has stock he needs to unload.
You will not get any speed performance with the PC3200 RAM because the motherboard cannot make use of this faster RAM.

I was wanting to know if updating the bios will all me to add more ram then my computer allows which is 1g

Your PC can support 2GB as it is. That is 1GB per Slot and there are two slots. Your Standard type of RAM to use would be DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 1GB.
However even though you could install 2x 2GB Chips it is not recommened by manufacturer specifications and I suggest you don't buy these Chips until you could test it first, making sure sure you run the computer for a few hours and opening resource intensive programs like high end games and a few other programs or anything really at the same time, which would need a considerable amount of RAM so you can test system stability.

What kind of RAM does an E-machines T5082 take, i have a 1gb stick of pc2700, will this be compatible?

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

So, to answer your question, your PC2700 memory will not work as that is DDR and you need DDR2.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. :c)
