Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
Have Compaq Armada E500 with 2 X 64Mb SODIMM modules working ok but slow. Purchased 2 X 256Mb 144pin PC100 SODIMM modules. With both 256Mb modules fitted laptop refuses to boot. With only one 256Mb module and one 64Mb module fitted laptop displays 'Invalid memory module' and refuses to boot.
Try one only 256 it should work now. You cannot use a 256 with a 64 it just will not work it is physically impossible. I know with some of those older models and Im picking yours is because you mention you were using 2x64. What you should have done was to buy two x 128 I am possitive your board can only handle 256mb of ram. Try the one only and if it works use that I dont think two of them will work not on that board?? Let me know ok. You might wanna clean your machine out with a software like this and its 30 days trial but has all features till it expires: http://www.tuneup.com. else if you dont want to take my advice on your laptop you can always go here: http://www.compaq.com
