  1. I just upgraded my memory from 768mb to 2048mb and my computer performance seems to be worse than it was. Any advice?

    2.8ghz intel celeron
    fx5500 oc 256mb
    2x1024mb pc3200

    There is no point in double posting this in different sections of the forum and it is against the rules.

    Instal AIDA32 [free]
    And check if your motherboard is able to handle pc3200

    Perhaps your bus is not fast enough for these dimms

    Try if it improoves when you only have one 1024 inside

    Put them side by side
    Dont leave an empty place between them or
    Start from the other side of your mobo
    And put the dimms there
    You have your first dimm in the left sloth
    Second at the following sloth
    And the 3th-4th empty
    Put the first dimm at sloth 4 and the second at 3

    Remove your old memory stick if you have all 3 inside

    Just some ideas to try Good Luck :wave:
