Hello, I am having a serious problem that I cannot fix. I have a PC Chips motherboard slot 1/socket 370 model M741 LMRT. I am currently running a 64mb chip that came with the computer. I went out today and purchased a Kingston pc100 128mb stick thinking it would help, but the opposite has happened.
After installing the chip I noticed that the computer was much slower than before and doing simple things like opening up a browser while listening to winamp would cause the music to start to skip very bad.
I initially had my 64mb stick installed in the first slot followed by the kingston in the second. So I tried moving the Kingston to the first slot and putting my 64mb one to the second one and I got the same result.
After doing this I took out my 64mb stick completely and just left the Kingston in there and the same darn thing happened. I thought that addign RAM was a good thing, but I guess in my case its not turning out to be all that great.
My processor is a PII 400mhz celeron. I believe its designed to operate at 66mhz frontside bus, so maybe this could be the problem.
What do you guys suggest? Should I take a trip to Best Buy or Fry's electronics and pick up a stick of RAM that is 66mhz?
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Try running a RAM disgnostic on the 128MB chip.
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.
