As for updating the BIOS and the the VIA chipsets it hasn't made a difference.

Ok well as for listing the detected RAM that doesn't happen becuase the black DOS screen just flashes on to fast for me to see it and as or the performance tab it says:

Physical Memory:
Total: 523760
Available: 290640
System cache: 207508

Kernal memory:
Total: 50358
Paged: 41108
Non Paged: 9292

If this helps my chipset is: VIA VT8366A Apollo KT266A

Your motherboard does't support the 1 GB, that's nothing software, it's a hardware problem. Giving the motherboard a new BIOS rarely increases it's capacities for a piece of hardware.
Only thing I've seen is the ASUS motherboards K8N SLI.
It doesn't support DualCore on stock, but when you update it's BIOS to 1014, it will.

Anyway, I'd advice to buy a motherboard that DOES support it.
And if you do, make sure it's the same type of motherboard (AMD/INTEL).
If you have an AMD and you put your harddisk in the new Intel, it will either not work, or give very weird errormessages and BSOD's.

Good luck.
