Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
I recently upgraded my memory from 1GB to 2GB. I took out the two 512mb and replaced them with 2 1GB. But now the computer seems to be running slower and programs freeze up for about 20 seconds now with the new memory then with the old memory.
Can someone help me with this.
Please try the following steps
1. unplug 1 GB memory from your system and try starting the computer with 1GB ony. Check the computer speed does it make any difference or not. Do the same step with other 1GB memory. if there is problem with any memory stick you will come to know using this mathod. If system is working fine with both memories then put them togather and check the system performance

If you are using Windows XP, go into your control panel, double click System (from classic view), and look towards the bottom where it says "Processor x.xx GHz, x.xx GB of RAM" and make sure your 2.00 GB of RAM is recognized by Windows. Next I would make sure you are using 400- or 533-MHz DDR2 unbuffered SDRAM. If you are, try removing one of the two modules and see if the computer runs smoothly. If it does, I would install a different brand of memory.
