I installed another 128MB of ram yesterday and I have noticed a system slow down. Most Apps are taking longer to load then it did before I installed the new ram. I ungraded from 128mb to 256mb of pc100 SDRAM. System information shows 256mb ram and I have cleaned, scaned, and defraged both hard drives.

Is it posible to get bad RAM and the system still show the new ram. I would of thought I would have noticed an increase in performance not a slow down.

Here also is a list of my running tasks.

Thanks Dan O. I did all that before I posted the first time. Like I said I don't know what changed, I didn't do a thing, but it's working great.

It has a mind of it own I think. Halloween I guess.
