Hello all. I just had an extra stick of DIMM DDR 512MB PC3200 installed in my computer yesterday to equal 1024MB. I came home for lunch today and went onto the ol' comp and for some reason now my computer is running slower than ever. I close a window and I either get parts of it disappear or it turns into a white block on my desktop and takes over 3 mins to remove itself.

Anyone know why this happens? :tazz:
