    Is there any way to know in advance if going from 64 MB RAM to 256 will require me to flash BIOS? I have an FIC VA-503+ systemboard and Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG, version 1.13JK10. I asked crucial.com tech support, who said it wasn't possible to know beforehand, but from the messages I've read here, I get the impression that maybe I don't have to worry about it. Is that so?

    Thanks!

    There was no RAM related BIOS for that board, 128 is the largest single module it can handle, so 256 in 2 modules should work fine.
