The computer is a Compaq Persario SR2150NX running Vista.

Basic specs
Processor:
Celeron 356 (C) 3.33 GHz
533 MHz front side bus
Socket 775

Chipset:
ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 for Intel Processors

Motherboard:
Manufacturer: ECS
Motherboard Name: RC415ST-HM
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Alhena5-GL6

Detailed Specs can be seen here:

Crucial's site says not to exceed PC2-5400:

But, I was curious to know if PC2-8500 will work in this computer and if it will work, what speed will it run at?

I also don't mind reflashing the BIOS if it will give the computer the ability to run PC2-8500 at it's fully rated speed.

Thanks

If you put PC2-8500 ram in that motherboard, it will run at the maximum speed the motherboard can handle which is PC2-4200.
