Having problems with your Dell Latitude CPX Notebook ?

Update failed I have similar problem when trying to add memory it will not be recognized. Should I give up?


Answers :

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.\015\012Hope this helps.
Hello,
\015\012No 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

Increase Memory. I have a Acer T180 desktop . AMD  X2  4200  Pc It came with 1gig Ram installed. I added an extra 1gig  No problem. I then tried to add An extra 1gig  (max 4 gig) 3 gig in all However PC cannot see extra 1 gig. Is this just a bad memory stick or am I missing something? Tried romoving existing 1 gig and replacing with new one. PC reported only 1 gig installed. Had a look in BIOS but cannot see anything obvious. Anyone out there had similar problems or know solution?
