Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Hi gang. I am upgrading to two 1 gig memory cards in my Dell 8500. The system does recognise the installed memory.
Problem: The system will operate fine for a while, then dies and reboots. Quick blue screen then reboot. Sometimes it fails to reboot and just powers down, sometime reboots but only see 128 megs of memory.
When I remove the Dimm B card, the system works fine. I have tested both cards individualy and they pass both the bios and the Dell memory diagnostics. Alone, the cards test fine.
If I place both cards in, run a diagnostic, the card in Dimm B slot fails with address errors (Dell diagnostic gets to 50% and address errors begin). I am assuming that it tests Dimm A first, then Dimm B.
Have you guys seen this problem before? I cant find anything on the web regarding this. Any suggestions?
I've put my original 256mg card in DIMM A and my 1gig card in DIMM B and have had no additional problems. So I'm just living with 1.25gig of memory...
