Cpx Pc Notebook memory upgrade

Why will Dell CPx H500GT Notebook will not upgrade to 512 memory? It will only reconize 192 memory. I placed 2 each of 256 MB SDRAM PC100 SO-DIMM 16MX16 CL3 memory into the memory slots and then placed the battery into the PC, plugged the power cord in, pressed the power button, and nothing happened. What is going on?

I flashed my BIOS to A14 and sometimes can get the computer to run for awhile on 2x256. Eventually, the motherboard thinks there is a problem with the memory bay and crashes with BSOD. The computer can be run with one stick of 256 Mb memory in either DIMM A or DIMM B, but will eventually crash if both DIMM slots are populated.

The is some indication of a know motherboard problem. The Dell P/N for the motherboard is 203DG, however Intel is the mfg and the P/N is likely different. Intel # is 800-843-4481

If this is a known issue with Intel, they should provide a replacement motherboard (with a faster processor would be nice)

Need to upgrade


Yes call Fries Electronics let them know what model laptop you have they can tell you the type of memory you need SoDimm more then likely, they will give you a price. It is better to remove the old memory and take it with you when you go to buy it has to match. Also you can ask what is the largest recommended hard drive they have for this model laptop, probably 60gb. The motherboard for that laptop does have limitations. That laptop probably does not have a built in wireless card so you can either use a hard wire RJ45 Data cable and plug the other end into your Internet Router, or you can purchase a PCMCIA Wireless Card to insert into the slot on the side of the laptop. This PCMCIA Card will allow you to access the internet wirelessly. You have now beefed up your CPx Latitude.

My Dell latitude Cpx laptop just does not power up, just flickers


I had the same problem on my CPx. It turned out to be a bad memory module. With bad (or no) RAM, nothing is going anywhere, so it immediately shuts down. New memory, no problems.

Dell Latitude CPx H500GT fails when using 2x256 Mb memory in bay


If the laptop is in warranty, then dell will take care of it. Also, are the two ram sticks the same speed? mixing ram can be bad. also, goldmemory software is excellent for ram testing.
lastly, if there is a bios version that allows you to use both ram slots, use that bios. a newer bios is not always better.
