did you buy the 1GB of ram or did you get it from a friend? You should see the model and s/n of your ram and check online if it's really 1gb because you might've been frauded and given a 512MB ram stick.
I never tried an update to an ASrock bios but the procedure goes like:
1. Create a bootable system floppy disk.
2. Download an updated ASRock BIOS file (in your case: https://www.asrock.com/MB/download.as...VT4A%2b&o=BIOS
) from the web site, unzip the BIOS file and save both ASRFLASH.EXE utility and BIOS file to the disk you created in step 1.
3. Boot from the disk you created in step 2.
4. At the "A:\" prompt, type ASRFLASH, hit space bar once, and type BIOS file name then press <Enter>. For example: A:\ASRFLASH K7S41GX2.00 <Enter> then you will see a message "Please wait for BIOS loading ROM".
5. After 30 seconds, you will see the message "Flash ROM Update Completed - Pass", then you have finished upgrading the BIOS.
6. After finishing upgrading the BIOS, please remove the floppy disk. Restart your system and press <F2> to enter the BIOS setup utility during boot up.
7. In Exit menu, please select "Load Default Settings" and press <Enter> to continue.
8. Select "Exit Saving Changes" and press <Enter> to exit the BIOS setup utility.
9. Now, system is booting up with new BIOS.
What went wrong after trying to update your bios? Did it start to update and quit halfway trough or it refused to update altogether? It's very risky to damage your BIOS (unfinished update).
