The I430VX Chipset has many problems with SDRAM - max is a 32MB stick - have a look into the FAQ for an explanation .
From your Biosversion 108FF11 it's a VT-502 - please doublecheck markings written onto the Board !!!
If it's a VT-502 then the latest Bios is here :

Wow !!! I430VX Board with a 2/99 Bios - never seen that before .
This Bios should support up to 32GB and I'm sure Rainbow will patch this for up to 64GB .
