welcome to name that hardware! for the cost of shipping and handling you can win .. a 8MB EDO ramchip bearing the brand of hewlett packard distributors ..
okay so its a 'disk on module' .. // google is my friend, but people who build webpages for the people that manufacture these things apparantly arent. ive found out quite a few places to buy some, and found a few people who cant get theirs to work.. but i still dont know what the dang thing does..
maybe its an upper memory extension, although none of the vendors seem to be intent on handing out tutorials on these things
as far as the dell website goes, it shows the slot that it goes in, doesnt label it and doesnt say that one is included, nor is the label that slot is given on the motherboard mentioned, at all
i checked on a used laptop i bought on dell one time.. it said that it was shipped with a cdrom.. im lookin at the laptop .. theres no way there was ever a cdrom in this laptop. ever, impossible, you would have to remove the battery and the battery cavity would have to be replaced
plus this computers been tweaked excessively, constantly, by a few different people
okay, so its a voltage regulator module.
not mentioned on dells website. or under googles 44 pin archives
(at least not in the first *shrug* lot of pages)
*edited for attitude and accuracy, sorry
