Newest bios or not?

Proper bios settings?

I hope I did not come off as offensive again I thank you for your helpful resonse,on line i found the mobo is afoxconn-a690gm2ma-8ekrs2h it shows a different bios,mine is 6.00pg ,chipset ati rs690/rs690m,southbridge sb600,dram 199.5mhz 1.8volts-fsb cpu/5 timing 5.5.5.15-21 2t cammand rate,and athlon 64x2 4800+ socket amd 940 core sp 997.6 bus sp199.5 multipler x5.0,all ram venders say it will support to 8gb if I put 1 stk of 2 gb starts fine , and 2nd freezes at starting windows screen tried both stks one at a time in each slot and ok , so it must be a bios thing as you say,I guess it,s time to go shop as I don,t have the skills- Than you again [kia]

^ You don't need to shop for bios, just upgrade it. What version is your bios?

rather than doing something wrong, or blowing up something. Do ask here first :)
