RAM problem

  1. Hi, my name is Arup, I am having some problem with my RAM. I used 256MB DDR1 RAM, and wanted to upgrade to 1GB. I bought new 1GB RAM but its bus speed was more than the previous one. I installed both RAMs and my computer was running well and there was no problem. But after some day I saw that the computer is running slower. But it was supposed to be faster since it has now 1.25GB RAM. Another problem was that, my HDD always asks for defragmentation even though just after defragmenting. Then I removed the previous RAM, and saw that the problem is gone. Now what should I do? Should I use only one RAM? Please help me.
    Thank you.

    You need to tell us the make/model of computer if it is a Retail Built or the motherboard if it is Home Built.

    Also, the specific Ram you had and are now trying to use. All details.

    AND!!!!! You need to do it in the appropriate place, not here.

    I'm thinking either "Chips, Chipsets, and Motherboards", or "Other Hardware" would do the trick. Either one is preferable to here. That said, welcome to Techspot. Oh, please read Tedsters guide.
