only recognizes 256mb on boot up. If I open the little door to access the
memory, close it, and reboot, 512mb is recognized. I notice some metal
contacts inside the little door that seem to be less shiny than the rest of
the metal. It's like some of the electroplating has work away. Is this the
cause of the problem?
Is this problem typical with older laptop computers? Is there recommended
solution to this problem?
Re: Dell Latitude CPXj - Memory upgrade recognized sporadically
You might repost to alt.sys.pc-clone.dell for a wider audience. There
are known RAM socket solder joint problems on a couple of Sony laptops
but I've not read anything about any Dell products. You might remove
the RAM and clean the contacts with isopropyl alcohol and a q-tip (r),
see if that helps.
