I was wondering if flashing the bios on my pc could allow me to upgrade the ram any further, its an older HP Pavilion a300, the max on the ram is 1gb (2 512mb moduels). i forgot to check the mother board info to see if it could even support 1gb ram sticks (which it doesnt), and i recently upgraded it to Vista and it would be nice to have the extra ram as i already have 2 1gb PC2700 just layin around in there package and nothing to do with them...

So, if i update the bios could it then support the 1gb stick of ram?

I don't ever recall seeing a BIOS upgrade that addressed the size of memory modules. BIOS upgrades generally correct problems, or allow for support of newer processors.
