Memory Upgrade problem

In upgrading the memory of my Toshiba Satellite M40C-JM3E computer from 512 to IG of memory I have encountered some difficulties and would appreciate any advice available. The memory insertions went fine following directions from Kingston (the memory folks for KT3311A/512) at their website).
Now the computer is running slower. ie Macromedia takes 2x as long to load; IExplorer is slower ...). As well when I have visited a couple of websites the computer has given off a long single beep. (It has not done so today).
The System (from Control Panel) registers 1 gig of memory.
I have tried to go to http//www.toshiba.ca support downloads and drivers to see if there are any bios upgrades (the computer is only 6 mos old) but cannot access it.
Could some knowledgeable 'geektogo' ... advise me.
With thanks

I am assuming you used the Kingson memory upgrade avisor and got the right memory for your computer/motherboard. This could be a case of just trying a few things and see if helps, no rhyme nor reason to it. Try swapping the modules to the opposite slot, IE put the module in slot a into slot b and vice versa. Then try it. If it helps, great. If not, try removing one module at a time and see if that helps. If not put it back the way you started and see if that helps.

Alternatively, you could test the memor with http://www.memtest86.com/
