Your laptop's memory is malfunctioning. To remove the memory, power down your laptop.
Turn it over and you should see a cover about the middle of the back. Open it and there you should see the memory. You may or may not have more than 1 memory Dimm. Also there are 2 slots. The bad memory is the one in the first slot. Take it out and put the other in it's place. the laptop should boot up ok, but slower because of the missing memory which you should replace.
If you get the same message, replace the memory with the one you took out, then reboot.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My computer is saying a bad or unsupported memory module was dettected pleas remove the unsuported memory module in socket 1 nearest the mini pci slot on a pp01l computer what do i do


remove the memory, turn the laptop over and unscrew the square looking plate on the botton. remove that memory module.

if its empty then most likely its the on board memory that is suspect and you will need to replace the motherboard (extended insurance?)

always double check specifications and speeds two or three times before ordering extra ram. just because it fits doesnt mean it works.

Sounds like the Memory Ram that you tried to install went haywire. Take it out and make sure this ram is compatible.

Try updating to BIOS to version A16 from http://support.dell.com Ensure you are not attached to the docking station when flashing the BIOS. Once updated, connect the 90W adapter to the docking station, connect your laptop to the dock, and power on using the docking station power button.

Here goes, first download the A12 BIOS from this page or others,

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/BIOS/Dell/index5.shtml

Then, Run this file to make a bootable bios floppy disk. Reboot the laptop floppy will start dos mode, the updater will detect any bios newer then A12 and say finished without changing anything and come to an a: prompt.

type dir for a list of files on the floppy. If your typing gets you wierd symbols try holding the Fn key (lower left) lookfor the filename C600_A12.exe or somthing like this. type it at the a prompt exact. The bios flash will check system bios and ask your permission to revert back to A12. say Y.

Computer will reboot. take floppy out.

My batteries charge grat now, but I don't get all ythe settings pages in Bios that I should, It seems to hang when i enter Bios. Laptop works fine though. i have installed and tries all bios from A12 yo A23, the A12 seems to be the best. No problems from winXP.

1600sc second CPU


Hi

Yes, some systems (newer PowerEdge Servers, generally 6/7th Generation and above) have onboard VRMs.

1600sc is a 6th gen PowerEdge (with Simple Computing). I can checked and be absolute certain from within Dell. I'm on VAC until Saturday.

In the meantime, check the PRC model and revision and ensure that they match. Given that a single PRC POST/Boots, try upgrading (if not already) the system BIOS to latest revision.

If the PRC model/revision does match and you have the latest BIOS version, also if the VRMs are not needed, then from the Troubleshooting you have already done, we may conclude that the PRC 2 slot is faulty.

I will confirm the VRM query on Saturday.

Black screen say unsupported memory , remove the unsupported memory from socket 1


I think you might have a faulty memory module. The socket where you push the PC card is not the Socket 1. I think the notebook is complaining about the Memory socket witch you can access if you remove the memory cover(click for details) on the bottom of the notebook. Try reseating the memory module, remove it from the socket and install back. Make sure the memory contacts are clean and not oxidized; clean them with an eraser if they oxidized. Try moving memory from one socket to another. If you have two memory modules installed, remove them one by one and test the notebook with only one module installed. Find out which module is bad.
