  1. i have an hp m1171n with 1gb of ram. i went to crucial and ordered 2 more
    gb's but when i install them the pc locksup on boot.

    crucial replaced the ram and now the pc freezs and does a reboot.

    crucial is asking me to update my bios, is this a good idea?

    Bad RAM Chip

    Sounds like one of the new RAM chips is bad. Swap the RAM chips until you find the one that is defective and get it replaced.
