Hi everyone, quick question.

I checked the Dell site for my laptop and it says that my computer handles a max of 2gb RAM and has a sucky BIOS I can't really do anything about.

Then I used a bios/mobo checker from esupport.com to identify my chipset and discovered that I'm using a modified Phoenix-Award BIOS and that my computer supports 4gb RAM.

Now, trusting this info would it be possible to download a full-featured or updated Phoenix-Award BIOS and also install 4gb of RAM? (Under x64 OS of course)

I'm new to some hardware aspects of computing. Thank you for your time.
