i have amilo xi 1547
........for all people(owners) on amilo xi series want to put 4gb in amilo xi 1526..1546.47..1554 and were waiting desperatlly for fuj sime to solve the problem, not ant more...pain
can put [b]alianware bios
for [/b]alianware models AREA-51 m5790
the BIOS can be found here http://aliendl.alienware.com/Mobile/m57 ... s1.19W.zip
iso image, burn to cd and execute via cd boot(everything writen in pdf manual!!!)
the AREA-51 m5790 is exactly the same as amilo xi series ........mean
even in chasis
.........in chipset 945pm...mobility x1800 and x1900(model depending) ich7 abg802.11
look here for specs and nice review(you can see it's exactly the same as
xi series)........http://www.notebookreview.com/default.a ... ware+m5790
after bios flashing finished on my amilo xi 1547 without problems.....
booting the vista ultimate 32 and reinstaliling all drivers...from chipset to usb hub to mobility x 1800 microsft drivers netowrk sound etc etc and about 5 minnutes ...
all reinstalled automaticllly and after restart machine working great..
the biggest question
does support 4gb at last after all adventures!
put the 2 x 2GB 667MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL5 SODIMM value ram series of KINGSTON and finnally machine works in dual channel 4gb...
the bios recognized the 3326MB and in vista welcome center says 4gb....cpu z says 4gb in duall chanel. it's working!!
and plus the start page after power is now alienware logo insted of
fujitsu siemens offcourse cause the image is put in the bios. no problem like you have new machine from alienware.....
checked the clock of my moblity 1800 is 't the default via catalyst..398/468.....(just to be shure cause it's alienware and it's about gaming) sooooooooo all it's same again but with 4gb
will write if have some problmes with this bios version or anything goes wrong(hardware related)malfunction
i found this trick here _(to be honest ) after 1 year waiting and waiting something to hapen on fuji support......http://www.laptopvideo2go.com/forum/ind ... opic=14069
and thanks to ArneAnd
and company for all riskshttp://www.amilo-forum.com/topic,1444,a ... g-RAM.html
however it's working.
all xi users can try with different brand modules .....mean corsair....patriot...etc
samsung and post your results if threr are issues with different manufa....they should work and been recognized (will see how much in bios)
as i said earlier in few posts BIOS DOES MATTER...and as thinking ...
this are BIOS issues, cause if 2gb are supported in 1 slot don;t see reason why not working with 4gb...........STILll waiting to fuji siems to solve and realease bios with these feature enabled
