Everest doesn't always identify the newer cpu's and motherboards correctly.
How is the system running with the one memory stick in it?
Has it been freezing still with the one stick?

You never update a BIOS unless it is absolutely needed.
Flashing a bios wrong can result in a useless motherboard.
Being as the 1 gig seems to be stable then what I want to do is have you see what memory configuration your system can have.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

It is always better to have a matching pair of memory.
Also a 32 bit OS will only see and utilize 3.5 gigs of memory at best.
From your specs it looks like you have the 32 bit version of Vista.
I suggest 2 gigs total memory and that way you can be assured everything is compatible and with the newer memory it should be faster then the mixed memory you had before.

2 gigs of 1 stick.
Take out the 1 gig stick and if everything is working correctly with just the 2 gig new memory then you can install the 1 gig stick you have now that is working correctly.
We want to make sure the system stays stable with the new 2 gig stick and then add the old 1 gig stick in.
BTW how is the system running with the 1 gig stick in it for the past 24 hours?

My suggestion....
Buy a new 2 gig stick and a new 1 gig stick. Same manufacturer and same speed.
Take out all the old memory and put all new memory in.

100 dollars for 3 gigs of memory or is that for 4 gigs?
What type of memory do you need?
DDR2 Dual channel?
You can get 4 gigs for about the same price.
