COMPUTER SLOWER AFTER REPLACING MOTHERBOARD
I recently replaced the motherboard in my PC. I was running a Pentium D 915 @ 2.8Ghz, 2×1GB @ 667Mhz Single Channel RAM with an 8800GT 512mb on Win XP Home. The motherboard was a cheapy Abit SG-95 with 800Mhz FSB. I bought an Asus P5N-D not so long ago to find that one of my RAM sticks wont work in it, so I’m only running 1GB RAM, but the other components are the same. I notice the machine running SUBSTANTIALY slower! I know that there is only 1GB of ram, but I ran it in the past on only 1GB of ram on my old motherboard and remmeber it to be faster than it is now! I am thinking about buying a dual channel RAM kit as the board does have the dual channel capability. But will this really solve my problem? Is there likely to be something in the BIOS that i can change to make it run as fast as it did before with 1GB ram on my old motherboard? All replies will be greatly appreciated.
