I just upgraded ram from 1 gb to 2 gb. The system won't see the 2 gb, so I learned that I need to update the BIOS. Where is this located?

On a chip somewhere deep in the motherboard. - You typically use a special program to update the motherboard - it either runs within Windows or generates a disk/cd that you use on startup.

The Asus support website does not allow copy/paste direct links to certain pages (as it is all ajaxy!), so you can either click here and navigate through the site yourself or click here directly for the latest (official) BIOS update.

The BIOS is located on a ROM chip on your motherboard. It can be updated through a process called flashing. To find the update file, you'll need to visit your motherboard manufacturer's website and grab it from the BIOS update section. Uniflash should help you with flashing it.
