I was going to say it sounded like an MSI motherboard.

A search for "RC410-SB450" in Google brings up MSI motherboards,

I have to agree with tonyg1962, we have to know the EXACT make and model of motherboard.

Putting the wrong BIOS code on a motherboard can stop it working completely.

The names you are have given us are ATI (which is the make of chipset) and Phoenix (which is the make of BIOS).

We need the make and model of the MOTHERBOARD.

just checked on the mobo,this is what it says-

MS 7248 VERSION 2

MSID XPM50101C00

ATI XP450

You need to download Cpuid and run it and it will tell you the exact Mobo model number
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

then click on the motherboard tab and you will see this

The model number you have given is a Gateway version of an Msi motherboard

even though it is listed as the same Mobo sometimes they have different for Bios for each specific model of PC,running one of the Gateway BIOSs may be a bit of a gamble.I understand you are wanting to add more than 2gb Ram but this might not be possible anyway,You may be better staying with 2gb as the difference is negligable anyway

yeh want to put more ram in it,realy want to update the bios to see but want to make sure i get the right one lol
#9
I have a Emachines with a Msi motherboard and tried a different Bios but ended up with the Cpu fan on full speed but i had backed up the old bios so switched back,It looks like that Mobo doesnt support more than 2gb whichever Bios anyway,Just one of the things about having a mass manufacture PC rather than custom build ,

#11
Well if you click on the links here it will take you to all the drivers providing it is the same Mobe ,I would look at the product views pics to see if it is the exact same one
