You need the low density ram and not high density. Unfortunately the low density stuff is rather more expensive then the high density so you're best trying to get some second hand - ebay maybe? I think the cpx only accepts pc100 even though the crucial site recommends PC133. Hope this helps.

Hello,
No you should not give up. You just have to add the correct brand of memory that DELL recommends, or memory that is compatible. Memory makers like Kingston and others, through their web sites can help you determine the right kind of memory for your laptop. Select the largest capacity that a slot can handle. Do not mix memory modules from different manufacturers. If a higher speed (newer) memory is compatible, buy the newer ones, older ones may no longer be made, and it will cost you more to find them
Hope it helps.

My Matshita UJ-840D DVD/CD-ROM Drive Stopped working


Hi,
i,m assuming this is A laptop Computer ?
The only thing you can try is this:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/ System/Device Manager.
see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks by your problem device. if so click un-install. then at the top of that page, there is a refresh icon or similar. which will rescan the systems bus.
failing this try add new hardware wizard, in control panel.
finally ensure the device is connected correctly, unlock/remove and re-insert. update any device drivers for this.

Im trying to add memory to my dell dim, 4300 desktop!!


That should work without any problems since the chips are 256. You can either try a bios update or clearing the cmos before trying to boot.

Let me know what happens after you try the above.

Sansa mp3 player could not detect micro sd add on card


I believe you can fix it by going on the player, then to settings, then to USB mode, and switching it from MTP to MSC. If you're in MSC already and it fails to recognize, then I don't know. :(

X 5470 Memory Card not being recognized by my computer


First restart your computer. Double check if your memory card is locked, this is the little switch thingy on the side of it, it should say lock somewhere near it, slide it to the part not marked lock. If this doesn't help go to your start bar, click control panel, go to printers and other hardware, click on the memory card you are trying to recognize. Then it should give you some options on what to do with it and one should be load to your standard Lexmark Imaging Studio. I hope this helps!

Laptop wont recognize 4 gb sd card


We have 3 of the original 512Mb Disney MixMax players for the kids and, according to the specifications printed on the box, the largest memory card you can use is a 2Gb card, you cannot use a 4Gb memory card with a Mix Max. I have further tested this fact by trying to use a 4Gb card myself and it will not work no matter how I try to format it or anything else. I decided to be smart: read the information they give you with the product and don't try to add a memory card that's too big for the item's capabilities. You have no choice but to buy several 2Gb cards like we did and put them in a carrying case so the kids hopefully won't lose them.

I got a new game and put it in my xbox 360 consol it said do you want to update now I said yes it said update failed now it wont let me play the game


well it maybe that you do not have enough memory to add the update or with some games you need the internet to get the update so try plugging the internet in and setting up an account and try the game again, hope this helps.
