do you mean memory keeps changing size or the actual bios size? if its the mem run memtest to check for errors in the memory and replace the apropriate dimm.

never come acroos that happening befor! if it the memory get memtest86 click here put it on a floppy reboot and see if it come up with any errors. If it realy is the bios changing size then all i can suggest is flashing your bios and seeing if that works.

How can you tell if the bios size changes?, dont get to see the bios size unless you flash and it usually around the 500k mark.The only thing that comes up with numbers,on my pc at least is the memory check on the post screen?
