Hey Everyone!

I bought an old m5500i-r3 for "restauration", and it goes well so far. But it need more memory. Currently i managed to put 2,5gb into it, but if i install 3gb it just wont start. The BIOS version is phoenix 2.04 . I heard there is an update for the bios so it could use 4gb, but i cant find the bios update. I found one here on the site, but it says that is for m9570 or something like that. Im not sure if that is compatible with mine. And im just too affraid to try it. I might brick the laptop.

If anyone could help, i'd appreciate it.
Thank you
