    Hi everyone,
    I just wanted to share my own experience about upgrading the BIOS on my LG LW20.
    First of all, I bought a 1.8'' SSD (KingSpec from the bay) to boost the laptop, since a 1.8'' HDD (4200RPM, the same as in old iPods) is verrrry slow (CrystalDiskMark says ~15MB/s for R and W). The performances of the SSD I bought were supposed to be 66MB/s for R and 50MB/s for W, said the vendor.
    When I installed it, the BIOS recognized it, but it was impossible to boot on it because the laptop entered in an endless loop (as estag08 mentionned on the post #53, always rebooting after the end of the BIOS loading).
    Then I found this thread, burnt the ISO and tried to flash the BIOS; my next problem was that the serial number of my laptop was fully erased...
    But the "Flash only from IDE CDROM" option saved my life since it flashed the BIOS automatically, without asking anything. It replaced the WINRSF03 by the WINRSF06.
    Then what? Then it worked! I did a fresh install of WinXP, and launched CrystalDiskMark: 89MB/s for R, and 81MB/s for W, quite good for a 7 year old laptop...
    So I wanted to thank y'all !

    I've updated all the LG BIOS CD links in the other thread that's stickied in the LG section.
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/new-lg-bios-update-for-all-models.429201/

    Walter, it sounds like you're running a 32-bit OS. Thus updating the BIOS will not solve the issue of you seeing 3.2GB out of a possible 4GB. Installing a 64-bit version of Windows will fix the issue and then you'll be able to use all of the 4GB of memory.
