Why would my computer run smoother with 2 GB rather than 4 GB of RAM? Recently I purchased a new set of 2 x 2 GB from HP.
Now I am running Windows 7 64-bit and it can map all 4 GB of RAM, but it runs not too well. It's not smooth, programs take longer to load, video is choppy and it's just all around worse. The moment I take out 2GB stick out of my Intel motherboard it runs great again.
How can I fix this problem? I have ran the Windows Mem Test, it rebooted and scanned 2 of 2 and came up with no problems.
