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

I've heard there is a known flaw in the Intel motherboard used in the Dell Latitude CPx H500GT. With BIOS A14 flashed, the computer will run on one stick of 256 Mb memory, but will fail with BSOD if both DIMM slots in the memory bay are occupied. Dell says the ID of the board is 203DG, however, I believe this is a Dell P/N and not an Intel P/N.

Dell says to call Intel about the board: 800-843-4481 Anyone out there with a similar problem? baileybc2007@gmail.com

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.

Upgrade RAM in a Latitude D600. one bay seems to fail


The memory bay is a part of the motherboard. Try each stick in each bay to make sure that the problem is the motherboard itself. Sometimes memory is incompatible with a particular laptop. Sometimes there is a maximum allowable memory. The maximum for your PC is 2 GB.

Is it possible to run two CD drives with the jump cable?


The Latitude CPx only has the capability of running 2 IDE devices (1 HDD, 1 CD-ROM) The optical drive can be connect via the drive bay in the chassis or the Cable. If Optical drive is connected via cable only the floppy can be used in the bay.

In short, you can't use 2 optical drives at once.
