Hi guys,

Having proper problems trying to update the ram on this machine. The modules and the slots themselves are fine (chopping and changing the ram round shows this).

The ram modules are situated above and below the motherboard - no issues with the machine with the 2gb upgrade above the motherboard but when I install the 2gb upgrade in the slot underneath I get BSOD.

Under many searches through loads of forums it has to be something to do with the bios - tried removing cmos battery etc to reset but no joy. I know someone has written a custom pheonix bios that will resolve this issue but i cannot find a download for it any where!!

Laptop - advent 9117 (rebadged uniwill L75ii8)
Bios type - pheonix
bios version - 1.00DIX
Bios agent plus tells me that the manufacturer is DIXONSXP but i think it's actually manufactured by ecs but don't hold me to that!! lol

Any one have any ideas cos i'm stumped!!
