err i read this as one of the review

"Memory support. The board is listed as being able to support DDR2-667 through 1066. I put 2gb worth of Corsair DDR2-800, and had constant trouble POST'ing. Every component would recognize, but either the HD or DVD drive would quit responding during Windows setup. After windows installed, I was able to login about 3 times out of 100 tries. Again, failed/froze during POST. Finally had to UNDERCLOCK memory @ 667, and it worked first time."

does this mean it wont support my 4gb ram?

its this one. I think you recommanded it to me on my last thread actually

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory


ok, so ive been reading more on the review for the biostar mobo. People are saying that the mobo is great, but i should update the bios right away because it has problems reading the ram.

How do i update the bios for my hardwares? do i just go to the company website and find my series and download whatever i need to and install it?








EDIT: actually going to go with this ram
