Hi! I have a P4P800-VM motherboard with the first bios version (1005) and I want to know if I can update it from that version to the latest version (1018) directly. Thanks!

Hi Y..

Yes...  you don't need to go step by step as the final BIOS is cumulative.. including all the changes and fixes contained in earlier versions.

However, you should have a reason for doing a BIOS revision....

Yes i have a reason! ;) With the 1005 bios, my motherboard don't recognize my 400MHZ memory. She just recognize 266 and 333mhz. I hope that update will change that! Thanks a lot!

Hi Y..

Yes.. there is 'probably' no solution in a BIOS revision  for that issue..  How much memory do you have installed...?

For the moment, 2 x 1gb 400mhz but I will surly add 2 x 512mb 400mhz in the future. 3gb are going to be perfect.

Hi Y..

P4-2.53 GHz (533 FSB, L2 cache:512KB)

I expect the problem is the processor.  The processor runs at 133Mhz... and that directly impacts the speed memory can run..  Installing a processor that runs at 200Mhz will 'probably' resolve your memory speed issue.
