I have a 2.7GHz Pent that came with 512 MB. I decided i wanted to upgrade to the computers highest capacity it could handle, 1 GB. I asked around and found it would be cheapest to just put another 512 stick in. So I went to the local computer store had the guy match it up and came home and installed it. In my system information screen it shows I do have a GB of memory now (or should I say 0.99 GB)
The reason I ask if I did anything wrong is because I have not noticed any improvements in speed, but more of a decrease if anything. I now have occasional problems when I open web page it won't load completely, or a media file like a Windows media video will start to buffer, but hang up. I will then have to refresh, or sometimes it will play the video but stop in the middle and do the same thing. I also have been getting those dreaded "windows has incountered an error" message quite a bit lately.
Any advice is greatly apreciated.
