Because of the age of the system there is no BIOS update that will fix the density issue.
thanks for the info... there's 16 chips, so it should work i guess. when i enter setup mode the computer is recognizing the 256mb chips, but for some reason it's not working beyond that.
however, the information in the auction from which i won these says they're hi-density... :question:
