You have most likely run into a chipset limitation - NOT a BIOS problem; "drivers" or BIOS "update" won't help. Chipset limits include maximum MBytes onboard, maximum MBytes per stick and maximum Mbits per chip on the stick. Check your mainboard manual - it SHOULD tell you what the limitis are. If you want chipset details you should study the chipset specification "sheet" (book).

Your older mainboard is more likely to support memory sticks with chips on BOTH sides of the stick (lower bit density). Maximum MB per stick may be only 64MB.
