Default Maximum memory upgrading

HI all, first what I am working on.... It is an older (2004)ish WalMart HP pavilion a735w. I know most of you think it should be in a trash heap but I gotta tell you it has been a solid machine never giving me any trouble at all. AT ALL. It has a decent video card and has played many mid level games flawlessly. SO here is what I am wondering, Specs for the machine show 1 GB as the max amount of ram. The motherboard specs, ASUS A7V8Z-LA, say 2GB max . Although asus says to follow manufacturers specs. Can I get it to take 2GB? maybe change the BIOS?
I know that ASUS makes a good product and that is why this computer has been as good as it's been. Thanks for checking this out.

I would think the 2gb would work.

Seagate 320GB/1TB<>Win7 Ulti 64Bit<>Antec900
SyncMaster 2220WM<>HyperX 16gb<>Cooler Master 600W
