Dell Latitude CPx H500GT fails when using 2x256 Mb memory in bay

\015 I've heard there is a known flaw in the Intel motherboard used in the Dell Latitude CPx H500GT. With BIOS A14 flashed, the computer will run on one stick of 256 Mb memory, but will fail with BSOD if both DIMM slots in the memory bay are occupied. Dell says the ID of the board is 203DG, however, I believe this is a Dell P/N and not an Intel P/N. Dell says to call Intel about the board: 800-843-4481 Anyone out there with a similar problem?

Answers :

If the laptop is in warranty, then dell will take care of it. Also, are the two ram sticks the same speed? mixing ram can be bad. also, goldmemory software is excellent for ram testing.
lastly, if there is a bios version that allows you to use both ram slots, use that bios. a newer bios is not always better.
