I'm reasonably sure you have a Venturis 5100 (five not ess).

Amazingly, the old PC stuff still inhabits part of the
HP website!

Worth grabbing them all while you are there - the parts list was
small so I looked and it does list the SIMMs but does not
explicitly state whether they are ECC or not etc. The service
manual may be more informative. I have an old Celebris in
use here (same sort of era - or at least decade) as the
Venturis and I've certainly dropped standard non-dec memory
into that with no issues. Maybe I was lucky and had the BIOS
set right?
