Standard tech support answer . . . from low-rent tech support.
There is no BIOS update for the TC-1000, and plenty of folks (including myself) have installed 512K RAM expansions with no problems.
What, exactly, are you seeing for your total memory now - look at both the BIOS memory reading (depress Jog Dial during BIOS test) and the Windows System (Control Panel>System or Right-Click My Computer>Properties).
I've never seen a memory chip display part of its memory - they tend to be all or nothing. If you are seeing 256K (or more likely 232K), then your 512K module is not seen by your computer. If you are seeing 488K, then your description is correct - you are either seeing half your memory module (unlikely) or you have a mis-packaged/mislabeled 256K module. Either way, you need a replacement module from your original vendor to get the 512K module you paid for.
