Question about Dell Latitude CPX Notebook

2 Answers

Laptop won't display more than 16 colors

Hi
I reinstalled windows 98se on older dell laptop Latitude cpx.
This is what it says under settings in Display properties

Display:
Standard VG 640x480 on Standard PCI Graphics Adapter

Colors
only 2 and 16 are available

The screen size is now only 50% viewable instead of being full.
If drivers are needed, could you point me to a site for downloading?

Thanks so much
Dennis

Go to the DELL WEB site www.dell.com
Make sure you download the correct operating system drivers for your model laptop.
To search for the correct drivers by use the Service Tag number, this is printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop, it is also displayed in the BIOS.

Wow what an oldie!
Unfortunately XP is no longer supported. This machine was designed for Win98 and 98SE. I expect there is a display driver missing, along with a few more perhaps.
Try loading 98SE and if it is OK, XP is your issue.

How do i change my dell latitude cpx to english?


The computer BIOS is in english.
The operating system you have installed might not be a english one.
You need to reformat your computer using a english
version of Windows Xp and install this to your laptop.

Now you have your computer in english!!!
This will work!
This is my solution! Please vote!!!

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.

How to upgrade a Dell Latitude CPX - Intel P3 500-650 laptop


I have a CPX H500GT. To get it to run XP Pro to run right, max out the ram. And get a larger harddrive. Xp uses a substantial amount of space.

It is possible to reformat the system and reinstall Windows.
Adding Extram RAM and replacing the motherboard is not cost effective as you could buy a better system for the cost of the parts.

Display problem


Your display driver is the windows generic driver. You need the video driver from IBM for your model machine. Installing the correct driver will give you the higher resolution you seek.
