Hi.

According to my PC case, I have a Compaq Presario 4705la, but it's not even listed in the supported systems. Instead, Crucial.com report says I have an Evo D300v (this one does appear there).

I want to upgrade my RAM with two cards of 512MB each. The problem is that when I plug them, the system doesn't even start. I presume this is a BIOS update issue. I downloaded the BIOS ROMpaq from http://goo.gl/KG0QP, created the disk, and the Flash program starts but it says "This system is not supported by the specified driver". I tried with the ROMpaq for other similar systems (like Evo D310v) but it didn't work.

Well, at least I can use one of my cards, but I'd hate to lose the money I paid for the second one. Here is the Crucial.com report I got. http://goo.gl/OfmKV

Thanks in advance for you help.
