Normally a BIOS update is not necessary to upgrade RAM.
If the installed RAM is not shown in the syatem properties try the following 2 things
1. re-rate the pc by clicking the windows experience index in system properties.
2. Update your BIOS as per instructions from support site.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: updating BIOS

Dear Sir/Mam
This is the Paddy_solver and since you are not able to find the bios upgrade i am giving you a link from where you can download your bios update however before you would do it lemme tell you it can crash your motherboard as well i would say if your computer is working fine you better not do it if your computer administrator has said so please go for it.
Link to download :-
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS
when the website would open you have to look in the middle of the page where it says "BIOS UPDATE TOOLS"
NOW BEFORE YOU WOULD INSTALL OR DOWNLOAD ANYTHING PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SHOULD KNOW THE BIOS INSTALLED ON YOUR LAPTOP FOR THAT YOU HAVE TO ENTER THE BIOS EITHER BY PRESSING "DELETE KEY" OR "F2 KEY " ONCE YOU RESTART THE LAPTOP TRY IT BOTH THE KEYS ONE BY ONE IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GET TO THE BIOS.
AND ONCE YOU WOULD SEE THE BIOS IT WOULD EITHER SAY "AWARD BIOS" OR "PHOENIX BIOS" ONCE YOU KNOW WHICH BIOS YOU HAVE THEN DOWNLOAD THE FILE ACCORDINGLY.

HOPE THIS INFORMATION IS USEFUL FOR YOU IF ANY FURTHER QUREY YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL IE:-
sumitfor_u@yahoo.com

Thanks and Regads
Paddy_solver

SOURCE: Update BIOS for memory upgrade

You cannot change the memory settings in BIOS. All you need to do is go into the bios screen. confim that it has seen your new memory and "save and exit" If it is not showing your new memory try removing and reinstalling the memory confirming it is installed correctly. it should just see it.

If your board is not supporting the 2gb memory module, it won't make any difference by upgrading the BIOS.

When I try to update Bios on Toshiba Satellite A215-S7462 The computer 'locks up' (becomes completely unresponsive), and the computer's display goes blank (turns off).


Upgrading BIOS! If it isn't broken don't fix it. Upgrading is a scapegoat fix, and many manufactures have a disclaimer. "You are on you own", and the likes for a reason. Most solutions are found elsewhere. However, if you truly need to update read this to help you with the upgrade. You don't want to end up with a brick. http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-common-mistakes-you-should-avoid-when-flashing-your-bios/357

Updating BIOS for ASUS CUW-AM/MEW-AM Motherboard


Try locating your bios etc. on asus's website:
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

128 to 256 seems like you should not need an update. Are you putting in a second 128 stick, or replacing a 128 with a 256?
