I had two 256 memorys. one is pc 2100 133 and the other is pc 3200 200MHz. After upgrading to PC 2700 333Mhz, pc does not boot it and repeat memory test continually.
Also memory test shows only 32145k.
Please help me to upgrade for it

Hi, it is unadviseable to "Mix" R, or more,am's .. they MUST be exactly the same generally to work together. IE: generall ANY two PC2100 would be OK, ANY two, or more, PC3200 would be OK. BUT NOT MIXED.. It really is as simple as that. Sometimes RAM's of differing types can Be OK... but most often it's causes problems. You need them ALL to be PC2700 333MHz.

This is the memory specs for the SR1500. Presario SR1500NX Memory SpecificationsStandard Memory
256 MB (removable)
PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs.
2.0GHz AMD Sempron 3000+
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.
Without a bios update and updated operating system the ram may not work properly.Also the memory itself may be faulty.Verification of compatibility doesn't really guarantee the ram will actually work properly when seated.You should have used 2 pc2100 ram sticks.
Each memory contain chipset , with black block coloured, each of this chipset has the ability of error parity checking, and own their clock latency, KVR is the kingston chipset , 100 stand for the clock or memory clock, PC 100 is means that the memory is SDRAM, While the DDRAM stands for 266(PC 2100) , 333 (PC 2700) . and the other x64 means this memory support 64 bit data flows, cl2 means clock latency (the delay for the memory to write and read), and 256 is the real size of the memory module.
if your pc is old, it may not be compatible with that amount of memory.. check to see your are buying the correct type of memory, a lot of pc's vary depending on model.. be sure to push down firmly when installing the memory stick.. hope this helps
