Thank you Eric also for your help. I hope the capacitors are ok, no way of
telling ! The new memory should arrive tomorrow. Which will be Two DDR
sticks of 512 each @ 266MHz The max as stated before is 1GB fitted. I have
been on SDRAM only 512 and when I have some moving graphics on have had
Virtual memory adjustments made by system.

It may be in the incorrect group, but I got news for you. The Bios is
a very important part of the operating system.
