I have just been given a Fujitsu Amilo L7300 laptop which only had 256meg of Ram I have an old HP laptop of about the same age with a dead mother board which had a 1Gig stick of ram.

After finding out online how to change the ram (under keyboard) and that it will only accept 1Gig total upto 512 in each slot I fitted the 1gig stick to see if it would work, it only shows 512 would a bios flash allow it to see all 1 gig?

Highly unlikely. It will be a chipset limitation, rather than BIOS.

Thanks it was a stick not being used so 512 is better than 256
