Is there any motherboard that can support any type of RAM? Like DDR1, DDR2, and DDR3. And I know DDR4 will come out soon. If yes, give a link, and i want to see it.

I only know motherboard which can support DDR2 and DDR3 but not DDR1. Is it possible to build motherboard that support RAM from DDR1, DDR2, DDR3 and maybe DDR4?

And, is it possible to upgrade my RAM slot (DDR2 support) to DDR3 support? Maybe by updating my BIOS can do the trick, i dont know. I use GA-G41M-ES2L motherboard.

Don't we wish!
It can't be because they all, for the most part use different pin sets, voltages, fetching protocols, and chipsets in most cases.

and that would not generate much cash for all these companies, releasing new types making us all upgrade spending big money

Each RAM type has a different pin count and size. Plus different type of memory controllers, bus speeds, and a dozen or 2 other issues that prvent one board to run several memory types. There are boards out there that have DDR2 and DDR3 slots though, but they are rare and not the best to use. DDR2 and DDR3 has different physical connections, BIOS updates won't do didly for you.
