too much memory?

Im running XP and I had 256ddr ram in two sticks of 128. Ive added a stick of 256 bringing it to a totel of 512 (of course!) but it now seems to be slower than before....any ideas anyone?

My processer is a 1.8 athlon

Thanks in advance.

DId you put the 256 stick in the first slot (Bank 0)?? If i understand it correctly the largest stick should be in Bank 0. Also have you tested the new stick on its own to check its not faulty??

Yes Jester I put it in Bank 0 ( after I tried it in the last slot first where it was useless!), but no, I haven't tried it on its own.
