do the bios updates fix the problem with running memory chips with 256k chips on them. Put some new memory and it went dead. Old memory works fine. Crucial said I had the right ones.

I went ahead and flashed the bios. Don't like doing that as I have produced a few boat anchors. All memory now working. When researching I found some notes about 8GB failing. Upgraded the bios to late 2008 and the problem seems to be fixed. Thanks for the reply. Gary
