I just got another stick of Kingmax pc150, so now I have 2 sticks of 128mb Kingmax pc150. When I only had one stick...my system seemed to be running fine. Now that I've added a second stick, I find that my IE windows tend to freeze up every so often. It doesn't really affect my computer in any other way, but just that I get that "Program has stopped responding" message and must "end now". I'm not sure if this is a ram problem but i'm assuming it is...can this be fixed? reformat maybe..??

EDIT: btw, i'm running win2k on an Asus CUSL2 motherboard.

I take it that your 2 sticks total to 256 megs? You can try increasing the swap file size... I don't know why this is, but i've read in some tweak guides that it can be a performance problem when u increase the physical memory but not the page file zize... If you have 256 like i do, try setting your page file size to at least 256... i keep mine at 384, LMK if that works out.
