I have the following mother board

i440LX-ALi513-2A69JPNB KR6LX

I checked with manual that it allows upto 256MB DIMM.
So i tried to 256MB SDRAM (single bank) but it recognized only 128MB.
Then started showing blue screen with error to restart.

I faced this couple of times and cant use PC with this upgrade.
I wish to know if the reason is single bank of 256MB ?
OR there is a real problem with the motherboard? Please help.

it is NOT a bios issue and a bios update won't help you. it's a chipset limitation.
If you email me include [WIMSBIOS] in the subject.

Amswer in short: You need i440BX compatible RAM - there's only one 256MB configuration that works. (16 chip module (8 chips per side) with internal 16x8 organisation).
