Upgraded RAM, Slower performance
Gigabyte GA-K8NSNXP-939 Mother, 1 X 512 meg DDR 400 RAM, AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8GHz CPU, Windows Vista Home Premium OS.
PC was running like crap, switching off, running slow, continual beeping every couple of seconds. Put it down to faulty RAM. Was running Windows XP. I purchased a new stick of 1 Gig RAM, installed it and the computer ran even slower. I looked and the PC Perf Specs and it advised RAM was 256 meg???? Put this down to faulty new RAM. Exchanged the RAM and this time the computer still ran slow however the PC Specs showed 1 Gig. Exchanged the RAM 2 more times, same thing.
I gave the PC a good clean and got the original 512 RAM running. This then allowed me to install Vista. Put the new 1 Gig RAM back in and the PC runs slow as. Tryed pairing the 512 and 1 Gig, the PC specs showed 1.5 Gig but the PC still ran slow as. The PC has 4 RAM Slots, tryed all configurations, no luck.
New RAM was all DDR400
WTF is going on???
Please help, Regards, Fred.
