Help about PAE error ?

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts



I've a Dell Inspiron 8600 with a Intel Pentium M processor 1700MHz, 2GB DDR RAM and running Windows XP Pro SP2.


I thought my processor supported PEA, but it seems that not!... because I obtain a WMware bug 9297 (see below).

I'm not a computer hardware expert, I checked my processor informations with CPU-Z, could you help me and tell me if my CPU should support or not PEA?


Thanks a lot,
