Hello, had 1gb ram on my pc. I tried to add two 512mb ddr 400mhz sticks to increase my ram. It works fine when I add one 512mb stick, but when I add the second stick it comes up with bios auto recovering problem and PC turns off. Do I need to update my BIOS as the motherboard can't seem to handke 4 sticks of 512mb of ram, can only handle 3 sticks.

check the manual for memory pairing.

some MOBOs pair 1+3 and 2+4, some 1+2 and 3+4.

also make sure the slots are dirt free
