  1. Would a blu ray player work on a computer with 3 gigs of memory and is an older hp a1610n? if so would it be cache 2 or 4

    Your computer's video card would have to be good and you would need a 3rd party Blu-Ray video player installed. Cashe would be of little concern

    I have serious doubts that the Nvidia 6150 on that computer will be able to handle blu-ray.

    It might work in the sense that CDs and DVDs should play but not Blu ray disks as already pointed out. Besides the blu ray drive, you need both a graphics card and a monitor that support blu ray.

    4GB with 2GB to 3GB free will Work but the CPU would need to be 2GHz or better. Depends on the Video Card also most of them that come with the B-R can handle the player. What's the WEI and the Installed memory (RAM) showing free and usable on your laptop there. There is a glitch in Windows all versions with installed memory beyond 2GB. This can be fixed.
