Upgraded RAM but it actually decreased preformance

  1. Well I former had 1.5 GB RAM. (2x235ish, 1 1gb). I just bought another 1 GB stick and threw it in there making 2.5 GB. But that seemed to decrease performance. im beginning to think that has something to do with my low wattage. Is there a way i can just get my computer to just completely FORGET about that upgrade and just go back to normal? If i put the ram sticks in the exact same place as they were at first?

    It may be about how you placed them.
    If the ram sockets go color1/color2/color1/color2 then go 1gb/256/1gb/256, with the 1 closest to the processor.
    If not, put the two 1gbs closest to the processor, then the rest further away.
    Try that.
