Question about Dell Latitude CPX Notebook
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)
