HP 7940 BIOS problems!!!

I tried to install two 256 RAM chips, then i get an error saying "your BIOS is not ACPI compliant please update" or something of that sort,...then I goto HP's update center and try BOTH updates for my computer type and they about almost 100% through BIOS update i get an error saying "File on disk is not the same BIOS part number". I also read in the forum that the 7940 was made with two different mother boards...Cognac and Tahiti. They only have updates for the Cognac. can ANYONE help me?
