I am trying to update the bios on a Gateway 510. There is no floppy. Tried to install new bios with flash drive but can not boot to usb. Any suggestions? I am trying to upgrade memory from 2X256mb to 2X1gb. Will not accept the 1GB ram sticks. Tried moving RAM around but will only boot with original ram.

Do they offer a version you can flash from a CD/DVD? Most sites provide two versions of the BIOS that is either flashable through a CD/DVD or by USB

No options for cd/dvd. Just one bios.
