    Updating the BIOS is a bit dangerous, but if you follow all the isntructions it is pretty safe.
    First, I would try removing all the memory except one module of 256. Then reboot to see what happens.

    For the BIOS, Go to intel and read this:

    http://downloadmirror.intel.com/5312/ENG/P10-0038d.pdf

    ore read the info release:
    HV84510A.86A.0038.P10.0204151346



    You will find the BIOS at

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=664&lang=eng

    The BIOS is named:

    P15 dated 05/29/2003

    Intel lflash.BIOS.update [HV86AP15BI.EXE] or similar

    Just click on the right where it says "download"

    If your computer doesn't need it, it won't install.

    It is best to copy it to a floppy disc then boot to the floppy to install it, unless the Intel instructions are different.

    I tried to remove all memories, also i tested one by one but the problem persist, in some cases the Bios gave me some garbage in the options and cant understand none of the options, later ill post an image that i taked with my cell, just in case u, thanks for the help i just downloaded the update, but really want to be very sure before i run the update.
