Your memory problem is probably a CHIPSET limit, UNRELATED to BIOS. In addition to memory speed and voltage, chipset limits include TOTAL onboard MBytes, MBytes per stick and Mbits per chip on a stick (bit density). Check your manual for maximum onboard memory; divide by memory slots to get maximum MBytes/stick. Sticks with chips on both sides (16 or 18 chips) are more likely to work than sticks with chips on just one side (lower bit density). You can find chipset limits in the Intel 430VX specification sheet (book): search for it at:

I think your mainboard was made by Gigabyte and you may be able to find some information on their web site at:

If you decide to "update" your BIOS read all of the BIOS Release NOtes so you will know what changes to expect, if any. Follow the update instructions EXACTLY. If you use the wrong BIOS update or fail to follow directions EXACTLY you will misflash your BIOS and you will need to recover a corrupt BIOS (it CAN be done).

Good Luck,
